But before Phoebe can pursue the matter, the professor in question turns up dead — and the FBI sends Cortez to investigate.

Now, seeing the blonde beauty digs up feelings he’d thought buried for good. But he must keep his emotions in check — he has secrets…and one of them revolves around a child with eyes as dark as his own. As they find themselves entangled in a world of conspiracy and deception, they’ll discover something more powerful than anything they’ve ever known — love.
