Becca Ford is on her own. Eight months after she headed up a sting operation to take down millionaire club owner Jarrett Holt, the other agents in her special ops team have been eliminated under odd circumstances, and she needs a place to hide.
Jarrett is a man who prefers darkness to light. He deals in the only truly valuable currency--information--and his supper club caters to an exclusive clientele. It was an uncharacteristic moment of weakness when he let a woman into his life. But it's not luck that the criminal charges disappeared . . . as did the evidence.
When Becca returns to the club seeking his help, Jarrett doesn't want to hear her story. But he does want her body, and demands that she give it to him. He'll keep her safe--for now--but it'll be in his bed and on his terms, until he says they're done.

Dimon (the Corcoran Team series) turns up the heat in this sizzling romantic thriller. Former government operative Becca Ford has nowhere to turn when she is the one being hunted. She goes to her ex-boyfriend’s to hide and investigate who is trying to kill her. Jarrett Holt is not very welcoming, as Becca had previously helped the CIA arrest him; he’ll only agree to hide Becca if she will allow him to use her for sex. Dimon strategically intersperses hints of espionage with sex that gradually leads to deeper feelings than mere lust. As the stakes become higher, and the CIA presses Jarrett for information on Becca’s whereabouts, he must decide whether the woman he spent the last eight months hating is worthy of his love. Dimon’s latest is perfect for readers who appreciate intense intrigue and very erotic romance with overtones of questionable consent. (May)
