(From the publisher):
Knockout Jackie "Jack" Rooney is beautiful and a highly regarded Las Vegas boxing trainer, a profession that rarely finds women performing. However, Jack needs a favor from her boyfriend police officer Rob that could cost him his career. She needs him to allow her time to protect her deceased friend's daughter Destiny, who witnessed a mob murder, before officially reporting it to the "police". He reluctantly agrees because the requestor is the woman he asks to marry him at least twice a week because he loves her.
Jack does not realize how much the mob wants the youngster silenced, but would have protected him anyway for personal reasons. Years ago this same gang of thugs framed her dad destroying Jack's family. Now with a reluctant Rob at her side, Jack plans to keep Destiny safe and bring down the mob that would hopefully also prove her father was innocent.
