By the time she enters the last seedy bar on Key West, Kira Douglass is desperate. She's looking for the one man who can help her: Cole Sinclair, an ex-smuggler turned musician with a highly refined set of skills and a keen knowledge of the reefs and waterways of the Keys. But what she finds is a man whose dark eyes and powerful manner send a frisson of desire to her very core. Kira needs Cole's help to recover the dolphin that was stolen from her charitable organization, but now she realizes that she needs his body and his soul, as well.
Cole Sinclair isn't looking for a job. He has worked hard to isolate himself from the world, to be alone with his own tortured past and the pain left in its wake. But the attraction he feels simmering with Kira leaves him unsettled and uncertain. If he agrees to help this beguiling woman recover the stolen dolphin, he could be risking more than just his life. He could be risking his heart.
