You'll want to read this one twice.
To protect her five-year-old son from his evil grandfather, young widow Isabelle Parker McAllister moves to a new town and takes a new name. Pinkerton agent Casey Walker, looking for cash to get his brother out of prison, accepts the job to find the boy and his "unfit" mother. When he meets Belle, Casey must decide whether to complete his task and save his brother, or give himself to Belle and rescue his own heart.
Young widow Belle McAllister knew she'd never stand a chance against her wealthy father-in-law who was determined to take custody of her five-year-old son. Desperate, she takes her child and flees, settling in a new town under an assumed name.
Casey Walker is called the best detective a man can buy, and he's been paid well and paid in advance to track down McAllister's grandchild and the woman he claims is an unfit mother. When Casey discovers that Belle is not only devoted to her child, but a beautiful, sensual woman who trusts him with her secrets and her heart, he is torn by guilt and remorse, yet he dares not reveal his mission. And even as passion rages, Casey's deception is about to explode in disaster, threatening to destroy their love, and the woman he cherishes more than life itself.
