Its participants are transferred to other defense agencies, but a few decide to leave the government behind, knowing full well their freedom hinges on keeping a low profile and living under the radar.Ex-PWP agent Noah First is grudgingly settling into life as a civilian when his boss assigns him one of those cases, like the ones he used to do for the government.
Given the job of tracking down a stolen painting, Noah finds more than he bargained for when murder is involved. Its his power to see the past in places where emotions run high, and when he tracks the painting down to a touristy mining town, he lands in serious trouble.Not only does the towns history shout at him with his every step, but he learns firsthand the room hes renting used to be in a bordello, and the inns manager is the spitting image of the sexy woman in the painting. Noah is increasingly drawn to her, and to the dark needs he normally keeps buried.
But are his intense feelings for Lara real, or just an echo of the past? And when he finds the painting, can he take it back to its rightful owner when someone in town will do whatever it takes to keep it, including murder?Publishers Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: some light bondage and D/s, and violence.
