Ezra Preston is on a mission. Operating undercover, he's been tasked to find out how much information Captain Lawrence Crowe, director of the Comastaz Lab, has on the Shadow Shifters. The only thing that can distract him-the stunningly alluring Jewel, a beauty who can take him out of the game and into her arms faster than any woman he's ever met. But as days spent flirting turn into steamy nights, Ezra is about to learn there is much more to Jewel than meets the eyes...Jewel Jenner has kept a low profile for years. On the run from Lawrence Crowe, she knows he'll stop at nothing to recover the fortune she lifted from him. And when Ezra Preston charges into her life - and her bed - she knows she's got one more complication to add to her list. Yes, he's strong and handsome, and makes her feel safe in a way she's never felt before. But when her secret identity protects all that she has-is revealing herself for passion worth the risk?
