No risk. No reward.
Erik O'Neill has finally stopped looking for trouble. Now, trouble's come looking for him. After years of cage fighting, Erik is ready to step away from the Nova Club's fight ring and into a new role – security for the club he calls home. All his plans change when a lovely loner starts visiting the club, and he finds himself caught between the need to safeguard his home and his friends, and his desire to protect the woman laying claim to his heart.
Chance is a cyborg with a secret. If the wrong people find her, she'll lose her shot at having the life she dreams of – or any life at all. She's come to the Drift looking for allies, but when she meets Erik, she discovers he can offer her more than safety. He's her chance at happiness, too.
When time runs out, she'll have to make a choice that will change her life forever - keep running, or turn to the one man her heart tells her she can trust.

I love stories from the drift!
There’s a new girl in town! Erik O’Neill is keeping his eyes on this attractive woman. The woman, Chance, stays to herself, mostly. She has highly unusual abilities, and does her best to keep that a secret. This is an intriguing story. Both of them are private about many aspects of their lives. I love the interactions with familiar folks around the Nova Club. Hearing from them is welcome. They have a lot of fun at Erik’s expense, but he dishes it right back at them! Erik doesn’t hesitate when Chance is in trouble; he just heads out to protect her as best he can. A splendid romance, leaving me craving more of The Drift, and these people.
