As a promise to his best friend Steve on his wedding day, Mikel's using his vacation time to track the bride's sister Renee. When he follows the only lead he has, Mikel winds up in Ojibway and saving Aino. As a way to thank Mikel for his timely intervention, Aino invites him to stay at his farm where his cousin Rachel Hill also resides. Mikel has to keep reminding himself that he does not get involved with anyone involved with one of his cases, even a delectable woman like Rachel. A previous bad experience nearly got him booted out of the agency, yet Mikel can't ignore the powerful attraction between himself and Rachel. Rachel long legs, sweet brown eyes, and imminently kissable lips are just too much to resist.
He was tall, dark, and tempting. Mysterious Mikel arrived out of nowhere, rescued Rachael's elderly relative, and then stayed on at her remote Michigan farm to see her through the crisis. Yet with her haunted past, Rachael couldn't risk trusting anyone, least of all this elusive loner.
