Orphaned at birth and shuttled between foster
homes, CIA agent Merrick Grayslake has made a
practice of not letting anyone get close to him.
But he finds that his emotions are at risk when he
is introduced to Alexandra Cole.
It has been all work and not enough play for Alex.
And what little social life she's had has been on
hold for a year while she completes her graduate
degree. But her ordinary everyday life changes
from the moment she meets Merrick Grayslake.
