Nothing anything like this has ever happened to Britt before–and while Manuela’s never around when the so-called “accidents” happen, neither can Britt prove she’s behind the many threats on his life. Is a rival for Manuela’s affections trying to chase him away? Is there more to Manuela herself than meets the eye? Whatever it is, Britt better find out fast–before whoever’s after him hits their mark, and the man who never thought he’d land the ultimate girl ends up paying the ultimate price.
