Can a Rediscovered Friendship Turn into Love Under the Heat of a Dangerous Investigation?; Denise Dory's unique skills as a top detective have landed her a prestigious position on the Special Task Force investigating the death of a prominent senator. The high-profile case soon brings her into conflict with Capitol Hill - and reunites her with her former partner and cherished friend Tom Phyfer, whose nearness awakens long-suppressed yearnings and powerful desires. Ever since he transferred out of Washington, Tom has missed Denise - more than he realised he would. Now, working together on the biggest case of both their careers, he's doing his best to keep a professional distance, but the desire that smoulders between them gives way to an uncontrollable passion. When Capitol Hill is rocked by several more high-profile murders, Tom and Denise are suddenly caught in an escalating web of dangerous intrigue that threatens their lives...and the powerful love they can no longer deny.
