Dedicated English Literature professor Imani Maxwell may not know everything that she wants in a man, but she knows exactly what she doesn't want. She doesn't desire a man whose job is as dangerous as her father's was. An FBI supervisory special agent, he was killed while working undercover. After his death, watching her mother grieve was almost as painful as losing him. So when one of her favorite students is kidnapped and handsome special agent Garrison Wade steps in, her attraction to him is unsettling.
FBI Agent Garrison Wade is captivated by Imani's beauty from the moment he lays eyes on her. Kidnapping case aside, he's determined to win her over. It won't be easy, though, because she's just as determined to keep him at arm's length and away from her heart. Garrison finally convinces her to give in to her feelings, but her passion may come at a price. She's just become the kidnapper's next target. It will take everything in him to track down the abductor and free the woman who's captured his heart . . .
