A SPLIT SECOND IS ALL IT TAKES...
Professor Dani Warren was willing to risk her reputation searching for that priceless piece of sacred Tibetan silk. And if she had to trust mysterious "risk-management specialist" Shane Crowe to help her recover it, she was willing to take the gamble---even if the real danger lay in Shane's fierce desire to protect her at all costs...
FOR DESIRE TO TURN DEADLY
Shane suspected there was a lot more to this recovery job than his clients were letting on---even if they were Tibetan monks. And with his company's reputation on the line, he had no choice but to rely on Dr. Warren's expertise in his search. But Dani's surprising savvy in handling big-time trouble was shaking up the icy concentration and well-honed instincts Shane relied on most. And now every move, every heated embrace was bringing them closer to the treasure of two lifetimes---and an unthinkable choice...
