Loner P.I. Blake Alexander hoped he wouldn’t have to involve anyone else in the investigation of his grandfather’s death, but the live-in nurse, Karma, suspects foul play… and has secrets of her own. Little does she know, the secret of who Blake really is could kill them both. Can Blake resist giving Karma the truth, and perhaps his heart, or will she convince him to confide all to save her– and himself– from the danger prowling in the misty orange grove?
Vivacious tomboy Shadow is in love with her boss and best friend, Lon, but loving him is complicated for other reasons. He’s the widower of a beautiful woman, killed in a highway robbery by Shadow’s own people, the fairies. Now, almost five years since her death, fairies attack their wagon train again, and this time Lon bears the brunt of it. Shadow has to leave, for Lon’s good and for her own, since she’ll never be able to atone for the sins of her people. Lon couldn’t possibly love her in spite of everything … could he?
