Ex-Cyber Operations field agent Dale Homme has kissed danger and betrayal more times than he cares to count and has developed a sixth sense for smelling trouble. Now he runs a clandestine factory beneath the surface of the moon Deceptio, where confidentiality and security matter more than anything. When a beautiful young woman arrives seeking a job, Dale knows within minutes she’s lying. Everything about her is false: her past, the people she claims to know, her reason for being on Deceptio. Illumina Smith? Even her name is an alias. Logic says send her packing. His gut says she needs his protection…and his love.
So he’ll do anything to keep her safe….even keep her captive.
