Sydnee Prescott’s life is perfect. Well, almost perfect. Business wise, the fraud investigation firm she is a partner in has become The Firm to hire and they have more work than they can handle. On a personal level, she still hasn’t gotten over her divorce seven years ago. They had been young, naïve, and in possibly more lust than love, but she still agonizes over the marriage that ended so badly. She felt that Cade let her down when she most needed him, yet no other man has ever won her heart.
Cade Tanner’s life has been nothing but frustration for almost as long as he can remember. His father forced him to take on a position in the family’s company that he didn’t want, and meddled in his personal life as well. Some of that meddling helped destroy his marriage. And no matter how hard Cade has tried, he can’t seem to fall in love again. He can’t forget the woman who challenged him, drove him crazy in bed, and tolerated his need to be a dominant in their relationship.
Never thinking they would see one another again, neither expected to be forced to do so. Before Cade can really consider walking away from his role in Tanner-Harbiger he learns the IRS is about to start a serious investigation into possible fraud and embezzlement within the company. The board demands that Triple D Investigators be hired to do the internal investigation. A firm in which his ex-wife is a partner, and the person who would handle the investigation. How can they possibly work together? How can they resist their still powerful sexual needs for one another? Even more, how he can protect her from both his father’s hatred of her and from someone out to harm her during the investigation?
