He never saw her coming...

Spencer Lark already knows too many secrets about Arizona Storm, including the nightmare she survived and her resulting trust issues. But in order to expose a smuggling ring--and continue avenging his own tragic past--the bounty hunter reluctantly agrees to make Arizona a decoy. Yet nothing has equipped him for her hypnotic blend of fragility and bravery, or for the protective instincts she stirs in him.

Arizona wants to reclaim her life, which means acting as bait to lure the enemy into a trap. Sure it's dangerous, especially with a partner as distractingly appealing as Spencer. But as their plan--and their chemistry--shifts into high gear, Arizona may discover there's an even greater risk in surrendering her heart to a hero....

Excerpts-
  • From the book



    Arizona Storm sat quietly on the overstuffed chair, her chin resting on her drawn-up knees, her fingers laced together around her shins. Waiting.

    In the quiet, shadowed room, she breathed in the unique aroma of aftershave and gun oil, and the headier scent of warm male. On the back of the chair behind her he'd tossed his jeans and a rumpled T-shirt. Close at hand on the nightstand, he'd placed his freshly cleaned gun and his deadly switchblade.

    His discarded boxers lay on the floor.

    He fascinated her.

    After breaking into his house, she'd removed her sneakers and put them next to his boots by the front door. The air-conditioning, set on high, left her toes cold, but he'd covered himself with no more than a thin sheet.

    Again and again, her gaze tracked over him, from one big foot sticking out over the side of the bed, up and over his flat, solid abs covered by the snowy-white sheet, to his chest--not covered by anything except enticing body hair.

    With one arm behind his head, his underarm and the dark tuft of hair there were visible. Seeing that almost made him look vulnerable--except that, despite his relaxed pose, the positioning of his long arm made a thick biceps bulge.

    At nearly six and a half feet tall, solidly built and finely sculpted, Spencer Lark was one of the biggest, strongest, most impressive men she'd ever met.

    And she knew some really prime specimens.

    His long lashes shadowed his high cheekbones, but that didn't detract from the bruising beneath one eye. A recent fight? She smiled while picturing it, sure that Spencer had come out ahead. His skill at fighting intrigued her even more than his big bod.

    Amazing, but even his slightly crooked nose held her rapt. When and how had he broken it?

    She inhaled a deep breath and let it out in a quiet sigh that, given the silence in his home and Spencer's acute instincts, disturbed his slumber.

    Arizona admitted to herself that maybe she'd wanted to wake him. After all, she'd been watching him--and waiting--for a while now.

    His head turned on the pillow, his legs shifted.

    Holding herself perfectly still, she waited to see if he'd awaken, what he'd do, what he'd say. She didn't know him all that well, and yet.. she did.

    Sort of.

    They'd met nearly a month ago while they were both on a sting. Immediately, they'd butted heads, and he'd infuriated her by interfering with her life.

    But worse, he'd robbed her of the revenge she desperately craved.

    Sure, he had his own need for revenge, so she understood his motives. She didn't forgive him. Not yet, anyway.

    But she did understand.

    At least, she thought she did. Once they talked it over, then she'd decide for sure.

    He made a soft, gravelly sound as he stretched that long, strong body. His chin tucked in. Muscles flexed. The sheet tented.

    Eyes widening, Arizona stared, not really alarmed, but no longer so at ease, either. She had a very dark history with aroused men, so she doubted she'd ever be unaffected by them. But she didn't let it get in her way, not when she wanted something, not when she had a goal in mind.

    She knew she should have taken Spencer's gun, at the very least moved it out of his reach. But instead she'd found him in the bed, and before she'd even thought it through, she'd taken the empty seat and settled in to study him while he slept.

    Since that fateful day when her destiny had been stolen from her, she'd seen him only a handful of times. She'd tried to stay away. She'd tried to forget about him.

    She hadn't been successful.

    Stretching, he brought his hand out from behind his...
