Cade’s fantasy is to seduce his best friend if he isn’t murdered first.

His comfortable routine as a member of Sebastian St. Croix’s cat burglar team is shattered the day he’s pinned in a crushed car. In a moment of clarity, before everything goes dark, he realizes he’s in love with his best friend, a woman who has sworn off intimate relationships for life.

It’s taken Bassinae years to overcome a past filled with physical abuse and embrace the truth that she is a powerful, capable woman in her own right. Tamping down a case of nerves, she’s ready to take on a larger role as a thief in Sebastian’s next caper. If only Cade would stop acting like a lovelorn idiot. She needs her best friend’s support to help steal the Pharaoh’s jewels.

Set in the distant future, this sci-fi suspense romance has action and adventure as well as a sizzling romance.

“You can stop babying me.” Vanity made Cade want to slap the long brown fingers of the woman walking beside him off his arm, but he restrained himself because he also loved the sensations her touch brought him. Still, he didn’t like the implication that he was an invalid. He endured instead. After all this was Miss Mary Sunshine, and if he removed her hand, she’d start another pep talk. He couldn’t stand another happy, happy, everything’s-coming-up-roses lecture.

“I don’t want you to fall. So, get over yourself.” This statement was delivered with one of Bassinae’s patented brilliant smiles.

As if. I’m not that bad off. But when she looked at him like that he was a goner. Since the accident the sunlight that Bassinae routinely distributed in liberal doses to everyone around her had affected him in strange ways. For example, even though he’d been pissy, he couldn’t stop the grin that flashed onto his face or the words that tumbled from his lips. “You know you love me when I growl.”

She cocked an eyebrow at him. “I love you when you’re not acting like a wounded lion better.”

An ache not associated with his injury flooded his chest. Love? She loved him like a brother. Since the accident Cade wasn’t sure he wanted her to remain in the sister category of his affections. Darcelle? Yes. She was the epitome of the bratty younger sibling out to prove she could best her big brother. But Bassinae, she was special. Damn pretty. Not an ounce of fat on her dancer’s body. And stamina. She could compete with anyone in his military unit on endurance, both physical and emotional. She’d been through hell and back, yet she was a bundle of encouragement and positive thinking. And she was devoting her spare time to getting him back on his feet. Something he needed to happen yesterday instead of sometime in the future.

His chance to truly be there for Sebastian had come, and he was out of the fight. But not for long. If he knew one thing about Bassinae, she would drive him hard enough to gain ground without overdoing and relapsing. She’d been his friend ever since he’d arrived emotionally battered to take up the post of Sebastian’s personal body guard. A job that had seemed more make work than real until Sebastian brought him in on his criminal activities. With someone aiming for Sebastian, the need for security now become paramount. And here he was, scuffing his way down the hall that his apartment opened on to.
