Special Agent Lexi Steele is an operative with RED—the Recovery Enforcement Division, a highly secretive offshoot of the NSA. Her sexy, too-hot-to-handle partner, Nick Donovan, gets inside her in a way no man has ever done before.
Lexi and Nick are on the trail of Karl Bachmann, a criminal mastermind who deals in sex slavery. To Lexi's shock, her team is ordered to pull back. Despite the horrendous crimes Bachmann has committed, they are forced to stop their investigation. Lexi is furious—why would the government let a criminal like Bachmann get away?
Bachmann is out for revenge and is bent on destroying Lexi. When her family is targeted, it's a run against time as Lexi and Nick search for a missing family member and the man behind it. They find themselves in a web of deceit and betrayal that goes to the very core of the U.S. Government itself.
In the midst of all the turmoil, Lexi fights her emotions for Nick, a distraction she can't allow. Nick wants her trust and her love…something she doesn't know if she'll ever be able to give. Formerly titled: The Temptation.
