Book 3 in The Men of CLEU miniseries, part of the Moonshell Bay romance series! “Fans of offbeat suspense will appreciate this strong tale.” —Harriet Klausner Investigator Joanna MacPherson is trying to make her way in a man’s world, and if sometimes she goes a little overboard in bringing the bad guys to justice, well, at least she’s getting the job done. But now she’s been put on probation at Washington State’s Covert Law Enforcement Unit (CLEU) … and one more screw-up could mean dismissal and a short trip back down to patrol. So she’s willing to take on any case in order to prove herself—even the weirdest one she’s ever seen. Lead investigator Cooper Maxwell has been trying to track down an elusive group of people who use a strange form of physical and mental coercion to make their victims do the unthinkable. They seem to be hitting on women, so the logical candidate for the case is Investigator MacPherson. Why not use one slightly out-of-control loose cannon to catch another? Except that Joanna is way too smart, to say nothing of beautiful, for Cooper’s peace of mind … and suddenly the last thing he wants is to put her in harm’s way. Note to readers: This book contains sexual tension but no sex on the page. The bedroom door is firmly closed.
