From New York Times and USA Today Best-Selling Author, Rebecca York
Cole Marshall's a werewolf. Emma Richards is going to be his partner.
Their dangerous assignment: to rescue a young woman forced into sexual slavery on a cruise ship of dark sensuality.
As they fall under the spell of the steamy atmosphere, their own relationship heats to flash point. But what happens when she discovers her lover is a shape-shifter--as dangerous as the villain who commands this criminal enterprise?
The moment Emma followed Frank into the conference room, her nerves started to jangle.
Cole Marshall was sitting on the other side of the polished rosewood table.
Dark hair. Dark eyes. Dark tee shirt. He always reminded her of a predator on the hunt, which was probably why he made her nervous. They'd partnered on a few assignments, and she'd wanted to tell Decorah no way in hell would she do it again. But she knew that the boss understood the strengths of his staff and put the best team together for every job. This morning, it appeared that the outside operatives would be her and Cole.
He gave her a tight nod, indicating that he wasn't any happier to see her than she was to see him.
"What have we got?" Teddy Granada, one of the tech guys, asked as he bit at a hangnail.
Frank Decorah passed out folders with photos and background information. The photos showed a young woman with striking strawberry-colored hair and blue eyes.
Emma gasped when she saw the picture. "It's Karen Hopewell."
"You know her?" Frank asked sharply.
"We both went to Carlton Academy. She was a few years behind me. What happened to her?"
She failed to come home last night, and her dad is worried sick. Her mom died last year, and she's all he's got."
"Maybe she bunked with a friend," Teddy said.
"Possible, but unlikely. Considering that the father got a ransom demand early this morning."
Emma's stomach was churning as she took in the information. Someone she knew. Kidnapped.
