Can she convince a man to let down his defenses when he's set on guarding his heart?

Tall, dark and eligible?

That's all that matters to the women of Jacobsville when it comes to handsome and aloof FBI agent Jon Blackhawk. But if it were up to him, he would never settle down. Luckily, Jon has the best gatekeeper: his efficient and reliable assistant, Joceline Perry. Without her help, he'd be at the mercy of husband hunters--but the more he comes to rely on her, the more he notices how invaluable she really is...

While Joceline can't deny that her boss is attractive, as a single mother with responsibilities she's determined to be professional. But when Jon is accosted by a criminal seeking revenge, she comes to his aid--fueling the spark that is growing between them.

As the attempts on Jon's life increase, Joceline stands by his side. But when the smoke clears, will the man who avoided love realize that all he ever needed was right there all along?

Cammy Blackhawk is determined that her son, Jon, will marry well. Jon is an experienced FBI agent. With the Native American’s dark good looks, it isn’t difficult to find a large number of prospective brides. Luckily, Jon’s assistant, Joceline Perry, has an uncanny knack for reminding him about court appearances and important telephone calls he can’t afford to miss, diffusing their ardor. Even better, Joceline has the rare ability of finding evidence in the most unlikely places. That’s part of why Jon keeps her on, but what’s her reason for staying?

Several years before, Joceline and Jon were at a party together when Jon was the victim of a drug-spiked cocktail. He was so out of it, he didn’t know what he was doing. Then why does Jon remember snatches of an unforgettable night in a lovely woman’s arms? Why does he know that Joceline has a small mole in a very intimate place?

Joceline struggles to keep her personal problems out of the office. Her son, Markie’s, asthma often rearranges her schedule, too, sometimes plunging them into the emergency room. It’s a lot to handle, but single mother Joceline doesn’t regret the choice she made so long ago - even if she is forced to confront Markie’s father every day.

While all of these issues swirl around them, a child killer is plotting to kill again. Evidence conveniently disappears in the heart of the police department and a convicted criminal is released to torment them further. Somehow, this special love still has a chance to survive in the face of such incredible danger.
