their "perfect" marriage was a perfect cover to catch a dangerous predator who was using woman for their babies to sell. Can Eden and Hunter keep from making this a real marriage once they had stopped being undercover.
With vividly graphic detail, this book begins with the chilling murder of the heroine's sister. Our heroine, Eden, is thus drawn into a co-FBI/CIA sting operation on a band of black market baby sellers who murder their unwed mothers. Our hero, Hunter, is a seasoned CIA operative, and Eden's ex-lover who coldly walked away from her seven years before. Hunter had been about to go undercover with a female agent to pose as a desperate, baby-hungry couple, but she gets badly wounded while wrapping up another assignment, so the CIA decides putting Eden in her place is their best bet. Eden and Hunter put on the personae of a rich couple and shack up in a hotel suite where passions of old ignite while they close in on the killers. The story moves along well enough that I not once found myself rolling my eyes or muttering, "Oh, please!" Eden's old resentment toward Hunter for abandoning her in the past melts away the moment they roll in the sheets and, at the same time, Hunter rather suddenly decides to make a drastic career change when he realizes being Eden's husband is suddenly the most important thing in the world. It would be a better world if forgiving and forgetting were only so easy, but things wrap up nicely in the end, so that is a forgivable sin in this otherwise smoothly crafted story that keeps the action going and the romance hot.
