IN NANCY GIDEON'S SEDUCTIVE NEW NOVEL, A TOUGH-AS-NAILS NEW ORLEANS COP MUST CHOOSE BETWEEN THE CAREER SHE'S DEDICATED TO AND THE DANGEROUS SHAPE-SHIFTING LOVER SHE CAN'T RESIST.

SHE'S SLEEPING WITH THE ENEMY.

Mixing business with pleasure gets more complicated for Detective Charlotte Caissie when her sexy preternatural lover, Max Savoie, is accused of a high-profile murder. To prove him innocent she must distance herself, but her tangled emotions don't make it easy for her to stay away from him. And neither does Max.

HE'S DESPERATE TO UNCOVER HIS PAST.

Left in charge of a criminal empire and protector of a clan of shadowy shape-shifters, Max walks a precarious line. Can he believe the cunning stranger who claims he can teach Max the things he needs to know to stay alive? A con man who would betray anyone to make a profit, who may be a ruthless killer?

TOGETHER, THEY'RE TEMPTING FATE.

The harder Cee Cee fights to clear Max's name, the more he pushes her away. He's protecting a dark truth that could blow the top off her investigation. And that means hiding his motives and lying to a woman who values truth above all. The woman who can save him . . . if he'll let her.

 Prologue 
 A 
low rumble.
At rst she thought it was a motorcycle on one of the distant streets.She continued to walk without worries, keys inhand, still smiling over a joke one of her friendshad told just before she left the club. She tried toremember the punch line so she could retell it whenshe went home for dinner this weekend. Somethingabout a farmer with a gallon of paint and an oldlady carrying a chicken . . . She totally sucked atjokes. Her dad, who had a slickly perfect delivery,was fond of saying that the only thing with worsetiming than hers was her ancient Volvo.She drew in a deep breath of night air to chaseaway the fuzziness from her last drink—some fruitycreation that guy at the next table had sent over inhopes of an invitation. But it was girls’ night out,and some rules couldn’t be broken. Only estrogen-bearing bodies were allowed at the table. She’dsmiled her thanks, hoping he’d catch her at the doorto get her number.

necking back by the johns before she’d even left. Ohwell. That timing thing again.She crossed Decatur and headed toward theparking lot where her dented Volvo sat in the dark-ness. The main lot had been full when she arrivedafter work, forcing her into the overow boonies.She didn’t mind the walk. The breeze coming off theMississippi was cool on her arms and face, a treatafter the sticky afternoon heat.Her heels crunched on gravel as she left thepaved area of the lot. She could hear the water andthe lonesome sound of a big barge moving upriver.The muted revelry of New Orleans was behind her,but where she was headed, alone in the dark, it wassilent. Except for her footsteps and the sudden deepvibration of that strange rumble again.What
was
that? It sounded like the growl of some big dog.She glanced over her shoulder and quickenedher step, even though she didn’t see anything in thedeserted lot. Probably a hungry stray nosing aroundthe overowing trash cans, warning her off.She should have asked one of the girls to walkwith her. But she loved the spicy fun of the Quarter,and had never felt afraid after dark before.She let out a breath of relief when she reachedher car. Dim light from the other section of the lotcast her reection in the car window, a pretty youngwoman—with something huge, dark, and indistin-guishable rising up over her shoulder.
