The only thing more powerful than fear is desire…
A seasoned K-9 officer with the police in Maryland, Cole Jamison has left her old life behind her. With a new home and a new partner—a protective canine named Hugo—Cole is ready for fresh challenges. A crucial position on an important drug task force is exactly what she wants…until she discovers her gorgeous, infuriating ex-husband will be the DEA agent in charge.
FORCE OF ATTRACTION
Agent Scott Lucca may be a pro when it comes to undercover assignments, but this job is daunting even for him. Posing as a happy couple on the dog competition circuit means he and Cole need to get a lot closer than they’ve been in years. Playing a live-in couple should seem like a walk in the park compared to tracking a brutal criminal, but suddenly nothing could be more dangerous than the passionate fire they’ve rekindled…
“How did you get my address?”
“You forgot this.” Scott held up the deputy’s hat she’d left behind in Baltimore.
Cole stared at him through storm door of her home that separated them. “Leave it by the door.”
Instead, he twirled it around his finger.
Cole folded her arms, unimpressed by the smile beneath his shades. He had caught her just as she returned from night patrol or she wouldn’t have bothered to open the door.
Scott whipped off his shades and pocketed them then reached for the storm door handle. “Don’t you want to hear why you were chosen to be part of the task force?”
Cole didn’t move to open it. There was something very intimidating about looking her ex in the eye, even with a locked door between them. Force of personality. Scott had it in spades.
“Why don’t you just tell me?”
He slid a finger along the length of the door handle. “If you’re nervous about being alone with me I can wait while you call a fellow officer for back up.”
“That won’t be necessary. Hugo. Hier!”
From deep within the house Scott heard guttural growls following by deep other-worldly barking that would not have been out of place in a horror movie. Two seconds later, a huge shaggy black canine appeared and struck fist-size paws on the glass of the storm door at chest level. Scott stepped back instinctively, despite the barrier between them. Crap. Nikki’s K-9 partner looked like Batman in a bear suit.
Hugo immediately dropped prone at her feet but his ears remained pricked forward, his doggy body trembling at full alert for her next command.
Cole smirked as she looked up. “You still think talking is a good idea?”
