Description

NEW COVER
Part of a series, but a stand-alone novel with its own conclusion. No cliff-hangers.

Once burnedATF agent Jake Wescott goes undercover in his Maine hometown to find the local connection to Mexican drug-and-arms cartel's New England operation. Who would suspect a local son living on a boat and fixing up his grandmother's house? On his own time, he can't resist digging into the old fire that killed his girlfriend. What he finds makes him suspect the cause wasn't accidental but arson.
Twice shy Lani Cameron's return to Maine throws her into a tinderbox of danger. She has no memory of the fire that killed her twin sister and scarred her, inside and out. When she learns Jake is investigating the fire's cause, she wants in. She couldn't save her twin but maybe she can dispel the guilt and nightmares by finding the truth. Seeing Jake again revives attraction she kept hidden, but who does he see when he touches her, Lani or her twin?
And into the fireBecause of his girlfriend's death and that of a colleague, Jake doesn't trust himself to protect anyone, especially Lani, as daring and determined as she is sexy. He fears she'll become a target, but he needs her lost memories of that night. When the arsonist tries to kill her, Jake becomes her reluctant protector. The search binds them together, and intimacy ignites passion. As they uncover secrets, they face danger more explosive than they'd feared.
