New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter captivates with a dark, tantalizing world of humans, otherworlders, and a powerful AIR agent consumed by his desire for a woman he can never have. . . .
With one caress, he can give unforgettable pleasure . . . or unending pain. . . .
Hector Dean is shaved, tattooed, and totally ripped—and he has a deadly secret. He is a walking weapon, capable of killing with a single brush of his fingertips. Little wonder he’s determined to remain on his own. But Noelle Tremain is a temptation like no other. She is beautiful and rich, with a party girl smile that hides a shocking vulnerability, and from the beginning his sizzling attraction to her is undeniable. For the first time, his stone-cold resistance is tested. But to be with her, he risks destroying her.
When a wealthy businessman is murdered in New Chicago’s seediest district, the two are partnered, and there’s no escaping what they both want: each other. Yet neither Hector nor Noelle knows what to fear more—the killer case, or their own lethal desires. . . .

SummaryAdd a Summary
Gena Showlater takes us to a world where humans know of alien existence. In fact they plainly walk around among humans. In true to human form, some are prejudiced against them and some embrace their differences. In this time a police force of sorts has been formed. One specially trained to deal with the alien race. Hector Dean is one of those specially trained. Now he does training of his own at a school built to weed out the potential new hires. Noelle is one of the prettiest new cadets he's seen yet. She's also infuriatingly stubborn, sassy and manipulative. For someone he pegged as a sure fire drop out, she's giving him a run he never expected. Hector has a dark side though, one that he doesn't reveal to anyone. One that is particularly deadly and Noelle is quickly lighting his fire.
Noelle doesn't care what anyone thinks of her. She'd much rather they think she's a dumb bimbo when she strikes her blows. Hector though, he sees right through her act to her very soul. He keeps giving her the hot and cold act which leaves her completely confused. Men usually love her....if not for her money then for her supermodel looks. The man is getting her way more hot then she thought possible. He isn't even her type! His all consuming fire is about to broach the one thing Noelle fears most...her heart.
