He’s a cocky, high-performance undercover agent who’s just nabbed the perfect fake fiance for a job. And she’s not at all happy about it.
Cole is one of the Association’s top agents, but he’s up against a clever, dangerous psycho…and he’s running out of time.
Then he catches Angel cracking the man’s uncrackable safe. He blackmails her into helping him. He can’t worry about her safety. She’s just some criminal…right?
But the further they fall into Borgola’s web, the more he realizes Angel doesn’t deserve being pulled into danger…and the more real those fake kisses start to feel.

**From the award-winning Undercover Associates series**
Carolyn Crane aka Annika Martin is a RITA® Award-winning author of romantic suspense and urban fantasy (and she writes erotic & dark romance as NYT bestselling author Annika Martin). She makes her home in Minnesota with her husband and two cats.
Mac’s a spy—one of the best—a hot blond Viking with bad intentions. The singer in the Bangkok nightclub should be easy to handle: take her recordings while she’s recovering from the best sex of her life. Except she stirs feelings he thought he’d buried years ago.
Laney fled to Bangkok—new life, new identity, new everything. She keeps mostly to herself until the night she meets arrogant, gorgeous Professor Peter Maxwell. He shatters her defenses—along with her pride when she discover he only seduced her to steal some secrets.
Just hours later, she finds him shirtless and sweaty, chained up in the hotel basement. He’s some sort of undercover agent. She should probably leave him there after what he did to her, maybe even kick him for good measure. But her pscyho ex is on his way back—she can feel it in her bones—and she could use a dangerous friend.

“Wow...this book was most definitely a keep-you-at-the-edge-of-your-seat kind of novel. I went to bed when I was around the 60-65% novel, then woke up wide awake at 2:00 AM thinking about the book. There was no way I was going to go back to sleep until I finished the book. Yes, it was one of those.” ~Smitten with Reading

HE’S WORKING FOR THE GOOD GUYS. THAT DOESN’T MEAN HE’S ONE OF THEM.
He's a killer.
Thorne McKelvey knows exactly how Nadia sees him—as a brute and a killer just kinky enough to play her sexy games. And that’s how it has to stay. Leaving her was the hardest thing he ever did, but his undercover mission could blow up at any second. No way will he drag Nadia down with him.
She can't risk her heart.
Maybe it was foolish to fall in love with her late father’s deadliest henchman, but Nadia Volkov’s not sorry; without Thorne she wouldn’t have their beautiful little boy. There’s nothing she won’t do to protect Benny, which means she must hide his identity—especially from his father.
Now Thorne has burst back into her home, searching for clues to a gangland mystery…and stirring a hunger Nadia hasn’t felt in two years. But Benny’s identity isn’t the only secret she’s keeping, and things are turning deadly. Can Thorne and Nadia trust each other long enough to stay alive and have a chance at happiness?
