From the Publisher:
Young, beautiful, and fearfully abused, Mona was the kind of girl even a hard man like Dillon couldn't bring himself to use. But when Mona told him about the vicious aunt who had turned her into something little better than a prostitute - and about the money the old lady has stashed away - Dillon found it surprisingly easy to kill for her.
