Lani Talbot grew up with a deep sense of duty. The daughter of a policeman, she decided early in life to follow in her father's footsteps. Recently promoted to detective, she joins the Metro DC Police—the same force her father served on before he was cruelly murdered. Her goal: to discover the identity of her father’s killer.
Garrett Pierce is a ten-year veteran with the DC police, and has a reputation for being the best. When he meets Lani—his new partner—the sparks fly. Pierce already feels partially responsible for his former partner's death. The last thing he needs is a female tagging along on dangerous assignments, and a beautiful one at that. Lani, however, is all business and is determined to prove it as they investigate the murder of a wealthy businessman's son. As the case unfolds and the list of suspects narrows, Lani and Pierce earn each other's respect—and discover a mutual attraction. When someone tries to murder Lani though, Pierce realizes that yet another partner is in dire danger.
Can he save Lani—the only woman to touch his heart and his soul?
