When Blade Hampton, ex-Federal agent, met Jen Holt, she knocked him off his feet. Literally. Then he learned she was partnered with his ex-partner, Ray, trying to steal back a stolen painting. Blade didn't trust Ray when it came to clever, sharp, pretty girls, and it was his duty to make sure Jen didn't end up with broken bones or a broken heart. Right? He had to join them on this job. It made sense. Right? Jen had grown up taking care of everyone else, and kept her heart safely armored to avoid complications. She knew she sucked at romance, so why did she let Ray talk her into pretending to have an affair with Blade as part of their cover story? It should have been an easy job, sneaking around an island on Lake Erie, pretending to be security consultants, playing their host for a fool, and pretending to be married to Ray while she had an affair with Blade. So why was it, every time she looked into Blade's gray eyes, everything got so complicated?
