Tate Winslow is done with all the guns, the adventures, the brushes with death. All she wants is to be left alone. So when her enigmatic ex-boss shows up on her doorstep barely alive, she really tries not to care. He s all alpha male, the baddest of the bad and a threat to her hard-won peace in more ways than one.
Tate is the only lead Derek Cole has on a case that could blow the intelligence world apart if it doesn t kill him before he can figure it out. She was his best agent, but she s in hiding and he s gone rogue, and he s starting to think of her in a very nonprofessional way. In fact, he wants Tate like he wants his next breath, but he s already risking his life and his career does he need to put his heart in danger too?
