"Mary Daniels doesn't let anything get in the way of her job acquiring rare artifacts for her wealthy boss. But this particular obstacle--huge, hard-muscled, unashamedly masculine--is impossible to ignore. Stuck in a cramped car with Brodie Crews for hours en route to their new assignment, Mary feels her carefully crafted persona--and her trademark self-control--is slipping, and she won't allow it. Brodie can't imagine what secret in Mary's past has left her so buttoned-up, though he'd dearly love to find out. Maybe then she'd trust him enough to explore their explosive chemistry. But he needs this job, so he'll play by her rules and bide his time...until an enemy determined to outwit them strikes and he needs to get close--in every way--to protect her. Otherwise they could lose much more than a precious collectible. They could lose it all"-- Provided by publisher.
