#1 New York Times bestselling author Iris Johansen weaves an intoxicating tale of soul mates, seduction, and the allure of the impossible.
Gunner Nilsen is a man on intimate terms with danger. His latest assignment—extracting a nanny from a deadly crisis overseas—seems easy enough. The real challenge is keeping his hands off the stunning blonde, a woman who holds nothing back. But Gunner can’t afford to take his focus off helping his troubled godson, the child of psychically gifted parents. Andrew’s development has been hindered by past trauma and Gunner believes that finding the right caretaker is the key to Andrew’s recovery.
From the moment he marches through a hail of bullets, risking his life for hers, Quenby Swensen knows Gunner will turn her world upside down. He wants her and he’s not shy about showing it. His tempting touch even reaches out in her dreams. And yet Gunner’s talk of fate and telepathy both scare and intrigue her. Having worked with the children of high-profile celebrities and politicians, Quenby isn’t easily shaken. But to help the boy, she must accept realities she never imagined—and surrender to a love she never expected.
