Alec Grison is more than happy with his current identity as an inner-city cop. He doesn’t need or want to remember the past, the betrayal, or the resentment he still carries two hundred years later. But when one of the men on his team is arrested, Alec can only wonder at the irony as his actions to protect the arresting officer bring his own family back into his life.
Angelo Hansen is a gay man fighting for his place in a straight man’s world. He’s a cop, and a damn good one, but getting some of his coworkers to remember that fact is a daily irritation. Arresting someone while off duty is not unusual, but when that someone turns out to be a fellow cop there’s no way it’s going to be good for Angelo’s career.
He’s very surprised, and more than a little suspicious, when Alec Grison—deliciously sexy, hard-boiled Swat Team leader and direct supervisor to the man Angelo arrested—steps in to support Angelo against the rest of the department.
But when unusual things start happening and secrets he never wanted to know are accidentally revealed, can Angelo trust Alec Grison is telling the truth when he can’t even trust his own eyes?
The new Alice Cain is wonderful! It’s a little bit longer than her previous stories (https://www.goodreads.com/series/126439-lupinville) It’s very well-developed. The characters have a lot more depth and yet the romance is stil the central part of the story. I am really looking forward to the next book in this series!
