When Joy accidently comes across the man of her dreams, she snaps him up pretty quickly. He’s exactly like the heroes in the steamy novels she adores: loving, forceful and mature. The situation she’s gotten herself into turns deadly and J.R. Everly is just the sort of man a woman needs at such times. Although Joy is a forensic accountant, she convinces herself she can be happy on Jay’s Ranch, but soon the lure of adventure rears its head. After all, they already survived one dangerous assignment. Why shouldn’t they take on another, this time as a team? Jay is completely against Joy’s further involvement in the agency. She’s young, inquisitive and has no idea what she’s getting into. He puts his foot down hard ¬– or, rather, his hand – but it’s too late. The damage has been done thanks to his underhanded and manipulative boss. Now they’re in trouble up to their necks. Her man wanted to retire. Does he have another rescue in him and if so, what’s it going to cost her?
