Never a day goes by that Nicole Ward does not regret her past, but working as a prosecuting attorney for the U.S. Attorney’s office is one step in alleviating the guilt. Her father’s firm is all about money and power, and for a short time she had allowed herself to be sucked into that world, only to have someone die because of her.
It is almost over and undercover agent Constantine Vega is more than ready to have his life back. For three years he has lived in the criminally infested world of the most notorious drug lord Alvarez, but the time has finally come to take him down one way or another.
Stepping out of the frying pan and into the fire is exactly where Nicole finds herself with Constantine Vega. He is everything she has denied herself for so long, the very definition of danger and sex appeal, and the wild side she has suppressed for so long is coming unglued. Control has been her lifeline these past few years, but running for her life and having to rely on the only man who can keep her alive, sorely tests that control. If they do not survive, a killer will go free, but will the cost of putting him behind bars create a chasm between them so deep and wide it can never be crossed?
This story is rife with passion and purpose. The characters are very easy to enjoy both in and out of the bedroom. Although the danger element is somewhat downplayed, the smoldering hot love scenes and action-packed adventure keep you riveted to the pages. I mean honestly, tall, dark and sexy in denim and boots, what is there not to love?
