Agent Jasmine Len is more than just the assistant to the deputy director of the newly forming PAVAD division of the FBI. No one knows more about the new division of the FBI she and the director were creating.
Or knows more than Jasmine does about the agents who will be picked for the new division.
She knows their every secrets.
That knowledge makes her the next target of someone with an agenda of his own.
★ HE’LL KEEP HER SAFE NOW. ★
Agent Dakon Royal is fiercely loyal to the deputy director, and he'll do anything to keep the director—and the director's beautiful, intriguing, maddening personal assistant—safe from the danger surrounding them.
Jasmine isn’t used to trusting others with her safety—other than the director. Dakon gets beneath her skin in a way she isn’t prepared to fight. She’s not so certain she even wants to resist.
But they can’t act on the fire between them.
Not until they stop the threats coming their way and get PAVAD off the ground—before the newest division of the FBI ends before it even begins...

FBI Agent Georgia Dennis has dedicated her life to stopping those that prey on the vulnerable, using her profiling skills to get ahead of those that hurt others.
Her final case with the Complex Crimes Unit will be no different—even if the dead women and girls bear a striking resemblance to Georgia. To the victim she had once been.
The last thing she needs is her jerk of a boss, Michael “Hell” Hellbrook, second-guessing her as the case brings her own past boiling to the surface.
★ HE WILL DO ANYTHING TO PROTECT HER. ★
Hell had always taken the safety of his team very seriously. Especially Georgia’s—she's the only agent on his team who has an actual family waiting for her at home. The only way to keep her safe as the killer draws closer is to keep her at his side—even if the flames that have always burned between them erupt and threaten to scorch them both.
But as Hell and Georgia dig deeper into a killer’s secrets, someone else is watching. Someone whose descent into madness threatens everyone around them. Everyone Georgia loves.
Now Georgia and Hell have to answer the question:
Is this watcher their killer, or someone much, much closer?
