This excerpt is for mature audiences only. Prince Alexander Ivanov is scrambling to save his reputation and his livelihood. One of the Russian Nights Casino's hostesses has disappeared, and his business is suddenly under investigation by the FBI for associations with the mob and money laundering. Special Agent Kathleen Martinez has no patience with rich, entitled aristocrats, especially one like Alexander Ivanov whom she believes is involved in the vicious human trafficking ring which she'd tried—and failed—to shut down two years earlier. With a second chance to bring him to justice, she goes undercover in the casino, but instead of facing the villain she expected, she finds herself battling a sizzling attraction to the man. Now, forced to work together to trace the source of the illegal activities, the danger—and the passion between them—grows out of control, and they slowly begin to realize the biggest danger isn’t to the casino, it’s to their lives…and to their hearts.

She had been in the shower for so long that Alexander decided toorder some food. Judging from the paleness beneath the make-up,he suspected Kathleen had not eaten very much during the courseof the long day.He busied himself as he waited for her and set covered disheson the bistro table by the windows. He poured glasses of wine toallow it to breathe. Tried not to grow anxious at her delayed return,especially when the water stopped running in the shower and shedidn’t come out for far too long.Going to the door, he listened, but heard nothing. He knocked.“Are you okay, Kat?”Silence greeted him.He knocked again. Slightly harder. But she still didn’t respond.Trying the door, he realized it was unlocked and opened it whilecalling out, “I’m coming in.”Hesitantly he entered, and his heart nearly shattered from thesite of her crumpled on the oor, her head buried against her kneesand her arms hugging herself.He dropped to the ground beside her and nervously brushedhis hand across her hair. “Are you okay?”What a stupid question, he thought, and jammed his sts againsthis thighs, not knowing what he could do to help.She nodded, silent, but he couldn’t miss the tremors wrackingher body. Or the long, pent-up breath she took in and then expelledin a rush.

He did the only thing he could think of.He scooped her into his arms and stood.She murmured a slight protest, but then tucked her head tightto his chest and grabbed hold of his shoulders.He carried her back into the bedroom, to the wing chair tuckedin a corner of the room. Sitting down, he held her close and cuddledher in his lap. Brushed kisses across her temple.“You’ll be ne, Kat.” He took some small satisfaction from thefact that the shivers in her body slowly abated as he held her.“I hated him touching me.” She tilted her head back to look athim.“I can’t begin to know what you went through.” Even whenhe had been kidnapped, the men had not done anything sexualor violent to him. But there was one thing he had learned abouthimself that day that he hoped might help her.“When I was taken as a child, I was terried of the men. A partof me remembers that fear because I let it sink its teeth into myheart and soul.Kathleen raised her hand and cradled his cheek. “But you didn’tlet the fear stop you.”“No, I didn’t, and you won’t either. If you face it now, stomp itdown, it won’t touch you in here.” He laid his palm directly aboveher heart.She grasped his hand with hers. She was trembling again, butnot from fear this time. Tentatively, she moved his hand beneaththe edge of her robe to the warm, slightly damp skin of her breast.He made no overt move, allowing her to decide what would follow.“I want you to touch me, Sasha. I want to touch you.” Shepressed his hand to her breast. Desire beaded her nipple into ahard nubbin beneath his palm, but he still held back, knowing heremotions were fragile and that she could shatter if he handled thiswrong.“I want the same thing, Kat. But I don’t want to rush this,
