Blonde Demolition

The hot spray hit Mallory's sore muscles like a thousand needle points. Her heart raced. Her mind sped past it. What could he want?
"Ask me." She heard his voice through the translucent panel of the shower door. That voice that could send a thrill through her. That voice that had whispered to her of naked pleasures. That voice attached to a body that could fulfill those pleasures.
She shuddered, not surprised to see him. He had a knack for pushing through her boundaries.
"Do you mind? I'm naked, Trey."
His laugh rumbled from the depths of his amazing body. "I've seen you naked. In fact I could probably draw a road map of your body."
       Her mouth went dry. She finished her shower and turned off the water. She let out a noisy breath before she opened the door. He would not get the best of her.
Trey McCrane held her towel as if he planned to make her barter him for it. A twinkle lit his ice-blue eyes. "Towel?"
       She leaned on the metal frame of the stall, refusing to be intimidated. "Give me the towel."
       He did, easier than she thought. His gaze roved over her as intrusive as if they were his hands. Even if she hadn't been naked, she would have felt that way. Trey could look through people.
       "Don't you want to know why I'm here?"
       "No. I do want to know how fast you can make it out my front door."
       "Is that any way to greet your former partner?"
       She knew he meant partner in every sense of the word. They'd been partners in Homeland Security and in bed. "Leave, Trey. I have a good life."
       "And a bomb in your beer trailer."
       She wrapped the towel around herself and brushed past him to her bedroom down the hall. This wasn't how she'd envisioned her evening. Her vision held a bath and then bed. Alone.
Her vision had nothing to do with saving the world. "How do you know about that?"
       "Because we were expecting it."


Mallory Sage lives in a small, idyllic town where nothing ever happens. Just the kind of life she has always wanted. No one, not even her fellow volunteer firefighters, knows about her past life as an agent for Homeland Security.

Former partner and lover, Trey McCrane, comes back into Mallory's life. He believes they made a great team once, and that they can do so again. Besides, they don't have much choice. Paul Stanley, a twisted killer and their old nemesis, is back.

Framed for a bombing and drawn together by necessity, Mallory and Trey go on the run and must learn to trust each other again―if they hope to survive. But Mallory has been hiding another secret, one that could destroy their relationship. And time is running out.
