Then he broke out the power washer and shined up the tour bus. As soon as he finishes giving author April Ash and her hubbie a tour, he'll drive Big Mama to the hotel so RomantiCon attendees can see her.

Lauren’s visions of the past only complicate matters in the present. Despite their differing beliefs in the supernatural, the wild and exotic jungle soon lures them into a passionate love affair.

Connor resents that Alyssa has the final say on his multimillion dollar partnership. When someone tries to kill them both, they are thrust together and their mutual attraction sparks hot enough to heat the sheets to searing intensity, despite their mutual distrust.

Together they race between his headquarters in Colorado and the oil sands of Alberta to stay one step ahead of the terrorists who are determined to stop them at any cost. It will take their combined cunning and courage to survive the explosive and treacherous covert world of espionage, betrayal, terrorists and spies.
