As the Avon Journal's no-nonsense publisher, Jolie Chesney always stuck to the facts. And the fact was that she found the celebrated war hero who'd come to her office angrily demanding a retraction unsettlingly charismatic. His wild sexual exploits had found their way into her paper's gossip column, and Jo had no intention of compromising her standards, journalistic or otherwise. But when her star reporter suspiciously vanishes, Jo seeks help from this dangerously sensual man, whose connection to the Special Branch may save her friend's life, even if it means putting her own life--and heart--on the line.
Waldo Bowman sensed danger in his immediate attraction to Jolie the instant they met. Beautiful and independent, she was unlike any woman he knew--and he was determined not to lose her, whatever the risk. But when Jo uses her paper to set a trap for a cold-blooded killer, these reluctant lovers embark on a mystery that will change their lives--or end them.
