Lissa Kelly's life seemed perfectly normal until the day her brakes failed on the highway. Her usual fast reflexes kept her from being injured, but couldn't do anything about her home being firebombed at the same time. Her office, in what had been her late mother's room, was completely destroyed.
It made no sense to Lissa; she was an independent researcher with no enemies. Why would she be a target?
Only a couple days later she's unexpectedly offered a job that seems tailor-made for her; it even includes an apartment on site. Her new boss is sexy and gorgeous, but that doesn't really explain why she's drawn to him so strongly--or why he seems to feel the same way about her.
And when the uncle she hasn't seen in over a decade appears, looking no older and telling her things she has trouble believing, she knows her life will never be the same again.
