To: Derek Stone

From: Washington, D.C.

Mission: Break in to a penthouse and retrieve materials being used to blackmail a congressman. Don't fall for the sexy blonde while you're working!

All covert operative Derek Stone wanted was to get in and get out. The job was simple. Unfortunately, getting caught by Alyssa Ballard wasn't part of the plan. Six months ago they'd had a week of wild, wonderful sex. Then he'd left without a trace.

Derek's undercover work allows him to get close to no one—though he can't help wanting another under-the-covers experience with Alyssa. His mission in Dallas wraps up in twenty-four hours, and he wants to make them count. While he knows he should walk away again, Derek wants Alyssa…and one more night in Texas.
