A human trafficker. A city suffering economic instability. A man and woman who are the only ones who can fix this mess – or be the ones responsible for the whole world burning…
East coast girl Sylvia has been trapped in Portland, Oregon for a year, trying to make ends meet with her tenuously legal professions. When she’s arrested yet again for solicitation, she’s reunited with Agent Joseph Montoya, a man she has a history with.
A hot, chemically-charged history full of desire, heat, and irrevocable mistakes.
Joseph has an unusual proposition: if Sylvia goes undercover as the newly hired girlfriend of billionaire Alexander Sheen, a man under investigation for running a human trafficking operation, she’ll have her record cleared.
For a woman who has had nothing but bad luck over the past year, the offer is tempting. But Sylvia isn’t one to jump into danger – although she is one to jump into love. Which is something else Joseph offers her, even though they both constantly deny it.
Both Sylvia and Joseph have more than a criminal mastermind to overcome if they want to open their hearts again. They have to set aside their heartbroken pasts and realize that they’re no longer a pair of damaged goods with no hope for real love.
It’s going to take a lot of convincing. For the both of them.
