A covert operative. A life filled with secrets.
Jared Knight works with an elite group of agents trained to track down the worst criminals humanity has to offer. His career leaves no room for relationships.
On a dangerous assignment in Monaco he is captivated by a woman in a crowded ballroom. Disturbed by the uncharacteristic lapse, he is determined to forget her…
Five years later Jared offers Cecilia Benedict his protection when she becomes the object of an overzealous secret admirer. Unbeknown to Cecilia she is the woman who has haunted Jared’s thoughts. He can stay away no longer now her life is in danger.
Cecilia is intrigued by Jared’s serious manner and deep grey eyes. In the close confines they share she finds herself emotionally and physically drawn to him. An attraction grows…
But danger lurks in the shadows, threatening to destroy their relationship before it can even begin.
They drove to an exclusive boutique in the city. “Do you often take on this sort of assignment, Mr. Knight? Personal protection, I mean?”
Cecilia clearly waited for an expansion of his answer. He did not give her one.
“So I am the exception to the rule?”
“Can I ask what you normally do, or is it too secret to discuss?”
He saw Cecilia glance down at her hands from the corner of his eye. She was babbling again and seemed unable to stop. Something about him unraveled her calm serenity. Jared quite liked that.
“Do you need me to give you directions to the shop?”
“No, thank you.”
“I suppose a good sense of direction is essential in your work?”
“Tell me, are you always this chatty?”
A beat of silence before Jared felt his lips tilt in a hint of a smile. He turned his head to look at her. “I would rather hear your lovely voice than my own, Miss Benedict.”

A charismatic covert operative known for his love of danger…
Simon Winters has a reputation for undertaking adrenalin filled assignments. But even thrill seekers need some down time. After an arduous desert mission he asks for a more enjoyable assignment. Preferably involving a beautiful woman in peril and a fast car.
Dr Elizabeth Barrett’s life is quiet and orderly until someone tries to burn down her research laboratory with her inside. Now she has to contend with a handsome flirtatious agent living in her home. With his designer clothing and cheeky attitude, he has an annoying habit of putting her in more perilous situations than he keeps her out of.
Simon is captivated and intrigued by his beautiful scientist with her red hair and hidden fiery temper. But the danger escalates and what begins as a straightforward mission turns deadly when it seems someone wants Beth and her research dead.
“Simon, this is insane,” Beth whispered to him, her breath visible in the chilly night air.
“No, it isn’t. It’s perfectly logical.”
“But it’s a crime scene. Let’s just think about those words, shall we? A crime scene.”
“It’s your laboratory, Red. You’re allowed to enter it.”
She looked dubious. “I don’t have my pass key to open the security gates, Simon. I left it behind during the fire.”
Simon exited the car and climbed up and over the high metal fence as though it were a ladder, landing sure-footed on the other side. He walked into the gate booth and flicked a switch to open the gates. Then he walked through the opening and got back in the car, gesturing for her to do the same.
Beth gaped at him in disbelief. “You are impossible.”
“Thanks, I get that a lot.”
They parked in the shadows. Simon grasped Beth’s hand and switched on the flashlight, entering the smoke-damaged building. “What exactly are we looking for?” she asked in a whisper, even though the place seemed deserted.
“Why are you whispering?”
“Because it’s a crime scene.”
“Honey, you watch too many TV shows.”
