SOME SECRETS COME BACK TO HAUNT. OTHERS COME TO KILL.
 
Justine Jones lived her life as a fearful hypochondriac until she was lured into the web of a mysterious mastermind named Packard, who gifts her with extraordinary mental powers—dooming her to fight Midcity’s shadowy war on paranormal crime in order to find the peace she so desperately craves.

But now serial killers with unheard-of skills are terrorizing the most powerful beings in Midcity, including mastermind Packard and his oldest friend and worst enemy, Midcity’s new mayor, who has the ability to bend matter itself to his will. 

As the body count grows, Justine faces a crisis of conscience as she tests the limits of her new powers and faces an impossible choice between two flawed but brilliant men—one on a journey of redemption, the other descending into a pit of moral depravity.

“Into the Shadows feeds into that yen for the dark, damaged hero like catnip for felines.”  ~Dear Author

Rule #1: Don’t fall for your crime boss father’s favorite killer

NADIA fell for the most feared hitter on her late father’s payroll. Thorne’s a lost cause—as dangerous and damaged as they come, but she’s not sorry. Without Thorne she wouldn’t have their beautiful boy.

Now Thorne’s burst back into her life after being gone for two years, arrogant and demanding, making himself right at home. She can’t let him figure out Benny is his…so she enlists a friend to play their son’s daddy.

THORNE knows exactly how Nadia sees him—as a brute and a killer willing to play her sexy games. And that’s how it has to stay. Leaving her way back when was the hardest thing he ever did, but it was the only way to protect her. Now his undercover mission has thrown them back together…and it drives him crazy to see her with another man…and another man’s baby.


"It's going to be hard for another book this year to impress me more than this one... Into the Shadows is suspenseful, gritty, violent, sexy - everything I want in a romantic suspense." ~Smexy Books 

"Wow. I loved this book! This is one of my best books of the year and has reminded me why Carolyn Crane is one of my favourite authors. With Into the Shadows she has crafted a book that was emotionally intense, full of action and hot as hell."  ~Under the Covers 

"This is one of those reviews in which I just want to tell you "buy it, read it, and thank me later", but I know that doesn't work with you greedy people. So let me tell you why you should follow my advice... Because this book will rock your socks off!"  ~The Bookaholic Cat

**Nominated for the 2014 RITA award**

All four steamy, thrilling, award-winning Undercover Associates novels collected into one convenient and money-saving edition. 

AGAINST THE DARK

Secret agents like Cole should come with a warning.

Cole's a talented spy with a vast reputation--and an ego to match. But he’s up against a clever and lethal psycho…and he’s running out of time.

He's stunned when he catches Angel cracking the man’s supposedly uncrackable safe. She's just what he needs, so he blackmails her into posing as his fiance. He can’t worry that she hates him and he certainly shouldn't worry about her safety. She’s just some criminal…right? 

But the further they fall into Borgola’s web, the more he realizes he was wrong about Angel…and the more real those fake kisses start to feel. 

OFF THE EDGE

He’s a secret agent linguistics expert…and she’s on the run from a dangerous psycho. 

Mac’s a spy—one of the best—a hot blond Viking with bad intentions. Seducing the nightclub singer should be simple…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 Mac. He shatters her defenses—along with her pride when she discover he only wanted her 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.

INTO THE SHADOWS

"God, I love Thorne! He's so ridiculously bad, yet vulnerable!"~Amazon reviewer 

Nadia thinks Thorne's just some killer. Well, he’s so deep undercover, he practically is.

Nadia fell for the most feared hitter on her late father’s payroll, but she’s not sorry; without Thorne she wouldn’t have their beautiful boy.

Now he’s burst back into her life after being gone for two years, arrogant and demanding, making himself right at home. She can’t let him figure out Benny is his…so she enlists a friend to play their son’s daddy.

Thorne knows exactly how Nadia sees him—as a brute and a killer willing to play her sexy games. And that’s how it has to stay. Leaving her way back when was the hardest thing he ever did, but it was the only way to protect her. Now his undercover mission has thrown them back together…and it drives him crazy to see her with another man…and another man’s baby.

BEHIND THE MASK

What do you do when dangerous criminals win your twin sister in a card game? Trade places, of course.

Zelda and her sister grew up with identical faces, but their lives couldn’t be more different—Zelda became a secret agent while her sister got caught up in drugs. Zelda will do this one last thing to save her sister. She’s handled lethal men before…she can do it again.

But things don’t go as planned. Zelda ends up getting traded deeper and deeper into South America. Suddenly she finds herself at the beck and call of a domineering and mysterious new captor. Is he just another criminal? Or is could this be the legendary killer she spent all those years hunting back in her secret agent days?
