Chapter One

Harsh wind threw icy crystals of snow down the back of his neck, causing him to shiver. He raised his collar, then shoved his hands deep into the pockets of his coat, resisting the urge to touch the gravestone. The grave was all but covered in white, making everything look clean, but Dane Carter didn't buy it. Not for a minute.

He'd missed the burial by almost four months. His family was outraged, of course, but they'd never really forgiven him for past transgressions, so he figured one more didn't matter. Except to himself.

His face felt tight, more from restrained emotion than from the biting cold. The death of his twin was a harsh reality to accept, like losing the better part of himself even though he and Derek hadn't been in contact much lately. Dane had been away from the family, disconnected from the business, for quite a few years now. He deliberately took the cases from his P.I. firm that kept him out of town as much as possible. Though his office was only an hour away, he'd been out of reach when his brother had needed him most.

Though everyone seemed to accept Derek's death as an accident, concerned only with keeping the news out of the media to avoid a panic with the shareholders, Dane couldn't let it rest. He wouldn't let it rest. He had a nose for intrigue, and things had begun to smell really foul. It wasn't anything he could put his finger on, just a gut feeling, but his instincts had held him in good stead as a private detective for several years now - ever since he'd left the family business in his brother's capable hands.

He hunkered down suddenly and stuck one hand through the snow to the frozen ground. "What the hell happened, Derek? This was a lousy trick to play on me. I never wanted this, not the company, hell, not even the family most of the time. You left too damn many loose ends, brother."

The wind howled a hollow answer, and disgusted with himself, Dane drew his hand back and cupped it close to his face, warming his fingers with his breath. "And what about this Angel Morris woman? I got a letter from her, you know, only she assumed you'd get it. Seems she doesn't know you're gone and she wants to pick up where the two of you left off. I believe I'm going to oblige her."

His mind skittered about with ramifications of deceit, but he had to cover all the bases. According to the records he'd uncovered, Angel Morris had been seeing Derek on a regular basis until the takeover of her company. Derek had used information Angel gave him to make the takeover easier, and Angel had gotten fired because of it. She had plenty of reasons to despise Derek, and he certainly deserved her enmity. Yet now she wanted to see him again. After so long, he had to wonder if Angel had assumed Derek was dead, but with Dane's return, she felt she had unfinished business. After all, no pronouncements had been made.

As far as the outside world was concerned, Derek Carter was still running the business. Only a select few knew of his demise. The family had thought it best if Dane filled in for a while. If he pretended to be Derek no one would start rumors about a company without a leader, or a family with a scandal. All in all, Dane wasn't sure which possibility worried his mother more. The company was her life, and the Carter name was sacred in her mind. She wouldn't want either one damaged. And if Derek had been murdered, if the accident wasn't an accident at all as Dane feared, it would certainly hit the news.

But that wasn't why Dane had agreed to come back, why he was filling in for his brother. No, he wanted the truth, no matter what. And he'd damn well get it.

If Angel knew anything, if she was involved with Derek's death in any way, even peripherally, Dane would find out. He may have disassociated himself from the family, but he could be every bit as ruthless as the best of them.

Dane shook his head. "I'll be seeing her first thing tomorrow, alone, away from the family as she insisted. I'll let you know how it goes." With that banal farewell, he turned and trod back through the snow to the road where his car sat idling, offering warmth, but no peace of mind.

What a laugh. Dane Carter hadn't had peace of mind since he'd walked out on his family, regardless of what he told them, what he insisted to himself. Maybe Angel, if she wasn't an enemy, could prove to be a nice distraction from his present worries. His brother had always had excellent taste in women.

* * *

Angel tried to meter her breathing, to look calm, but her heart felt lodged in her throat and wouldn't budge. She hated doing this, had sworn she'd never so much as speak to the man again after his last, most devastating rejection. But she'd been left with little choice.

With her shoe box tucked beneath her arm and one hand on the wall, offering support, she made her way down the hall to Derek's office. She still felt awkward without her crutches, but she knew better than to show him any weaknesses at all. When she reached the open door, she straightened her shoulders, forced a smile, and tried to make her steps as smooth as possible.

Derek sat behind his desk, his chair half turned so that he could look out the window at the Saturday morning traffic. The rest of the building, except for the security guards, was empty, just as she'd planned.

He was still as gorgeous, as physically compelling as ever, only now he looked a little disheveled, a little rumpled. She liked this look better than the urbane businessman he usually portrayed. The only other time she'd seen him relaxed like this was right after he'd made love to her.

That thought licked a path of heat from her heart to her stomach and back again, and she had to clear her throat.

His chair jerked around and his gaze pierced her, freezing her on the spot. Even her heartbeat seemed to shudder and die. Only his eyes moved as he looked her over, slowly and in excruciating detail, as if he'd never seen her before and needed to commit her to memory, then their eyes met - and locked.

For painstaking moments they stayed that way, and the heat, the intensity of his gaze, thawed her clear down to her toes. Her chest heaved as she tried to deal with the unexpected punch of reacting to him again. It shouldn't have happened; she didn't care anymore, wasn't awed by him now. Her infatuation had long since faded away, but seeing him with his straight brown hair hanging over his brow, his shirtsleeves rolled up, made him more human than ever. His gaze seemed brighter, golden like a fox, and she tightened her hold on the shoe box, using it to remind herself of her purpose.

She saw some indiscernible emotion cross his face, and then he stood. "Angel."

His voice was low and deep. As he rounded the desk his eyes never left hers, and she felt almost ensnared. She retreated a step, which effectively halted his approach. He lifted one dark eyebrow in a look of confusion.

Idiot. She didn't want to put him off, to show him her nervousness. That would gain her nothing. She tried a smile, but he didn't react to it. Moving more slowly now, he stepped closer, watching her, waiting.

    1st good, 2nd ok, 3rd high school

    This book is a combination of 3 separate stories. The 1st was hot and kept me on the edge of my seat. The 2nd was good but not as enticing as the 1st. The 1st and 2nd also had close tie in characters. In other words characters that were in the 1st story, that you wanted to know what happened to them, were in the 2nd. However, I have no idea what left field the 3rd story of characters came from. It is quickly explained however there is no lead in to it. And then the 3rd story is very weak. Like something silly high school girls would do. It is steamy eventually however the stupid things that the characters do made me groan in embarrassment for them rather than hope for their success out of the predicament that they have found themselves in. All in all I recommend it because it does have some great romance but don't think it will take your breath away from start to finish.

    WOW!!!!

    This book is not only one story but three put together which is something that I was not aware of the first time I picked it up to read. I'm also not usually interested in mystery romances but this book changed m mind. It balances everything out very well and keeps you wanting to read to find out what happended. This book is something that you will want to re-read constantly.

    Not Worth Reading

    I read Beguiling, and then tried to read Wanton, but I just couldn't do it. I¿m going to try and read Uncovered, but the first two stories lack true development. I enjoy a story where I can connect with the characters, when I can feel what they are feeling, but Foster never completely draws the reader into the hearts of the characters. I enjoy steamy romance, but without the love of the characters, the steam fizzles.

    Fallen Angels

    Fallen Angels is a must read for readers who have recently discovered Ms Foster's awesome talents. BEGUILED AND WANTON are rereleases of two of Lori's hardest to find books and once you read them you will be able to see why. In BEGUILED, Dane poses as his recently killed twin brother to find out whether he was murdered or not. Only thing is he discovers that his brother has a baby boy and that the mom is sexy Angel who is just recovering from injuries sustained in an accident. Angel has every reason to be leery of men and is determined to be the best mom she can be for her son. Angel and Dane must confront whoever is trying to kill Angel before he kills again. In Wanton, Dane's sister Celia decides to give up her career in the family business and become a private investigator. Her first case is helping to rescue a girl from a prostitution ring. But she has one big obstacle, hunky, hot and did I say hunky? Alec Sharpe who is determined to make Celia's new career a short-lived one. In UNCOVERED, Firefighter Harris Black finds several pictures of a nude woman after putting out a fire, but there is something very familiar about the woman. How is his good friend Claire going to keep Harris from finding out those pictures were of her? This book totally rocks and I know you will love it as much as I do.

    Another winner from Lori Foster

    This was another great anthology by Lori Foster. I particularly enjoyed 'Uncovered,' but all the stories were great. The plots of a Lori Foster story are always very exciting and get you into the characters and what is happening. I look forward to reading more Lori Foster.

    Three Incredible Stories

    I have read Beguiled and Wanton many times and in Fallen Angels I enjoyed reading them both once again. In Beguiled, PI Dane Carter assumes his brother Derek¿s identity, to discover who murdered his twin. Along the way he meets Angel and is drawn into her life. The relationship between Dane & Angel is so special, a very tender romance and it just continues to grow. We are introduced to Alec & Celia from Wanton and Mick from Caught in the Act. Wanton is pure heat!! Alec & Celia spar and love with such intensity. Celia is the only person who can drive Alec crazy with frustration, and crazy with lust. While trying to protect Celia from the bad guys, Alec is strong and tough and then with Celia he is fun and loving. A perfect man! Alec is one of my favorite hero¿s and Celia is the only one strong enough to stand up to him. A perfect match! Also included is a new story, Uncovered. Harris Black is sexy, brave and a good friend to Clair Caldwell. The last thing he wants is to settle down and get married, or so he thinks¿ In Uncovered, Harris is searching for a mystery woman, unaware that she is already a part of his life. When he finds out who the mystery women is¿ Well you will have to read that part for yourself. I loved it and good friends really do make the best lovers. It is very clever how the characters from Wanton & Beguiled are woven into the new story, Uncovered. It was just a pure joy to read, these characters will be hard to leave behind. Thank you Lori Foster for another book I will read over & over & over again.

When Clair realizes that he is trying to find the women in the pictures, can she put a stop to his investigation and make him see the love that has been right in front of him all along?

    FALLEN HEROES

    Fallen Angels is the best idea Harlequin has had in awhile. They paired two of my all-time fav Lori Foster books with a new novella written by Ms Foster. Talk about heaven in a book!! Beguiled and Wanton are two very hard to find books by Lori Foster and its great for the people who are looking for them and also for those of us who are in need of new copies from being read so much. I urge you to get this book, otherwise you will be crying when it is gone. Just remember Alec Sharpe is MINE!!

    This book really rocks

    In Fallen Angels we are treated to two past Lori Foster favorites Beguiled and Wanton plus a new story, Uncovered. Dane Carter PI returns to his family business posing as his recently deceased twin, Derek. Only family members know about Derek¿s death. Derek betrayed Angel Morris so she is at the top of Dane¿s suspect list. Dane isn¿t prepared for the feelings Angel invokes in him and that she has had Derek¿s son. As Dane (as Derek) grow closer so does the danger. Angel is stunned to learn of Dane¿s deception but her feelings for this man are deeper. Dane and Angel¿s romance is steamy and powerful. Wanton¿s Alec Sharpe is a PI with Dane Cater. He is trying to keep Celia (Dane¿s sister) out of trouble. Alec has always felt this intense attraction to Celia but never acted on it. Celia is determined to prove herself to her family but mostly she needs to prove something to herself. She wants to prove she can be a PI and solve a missing person case. Alec agrees to help her on one condition, that he can changer her feelings about sex. Alec¿s lesions are some of the steamiest. As they work to solve the case, they come to realize how well they work as a couple. Each of their encounters is more stimulating verbally as well as passionate. Firefighter Harris Black in Uncovered comes across nude pictures of a woman with letters that are referring to feelings for him. He hires a local PI firm to find her. Harris doesn¿t realize that his best female friend Clair is the woman he is looking for. Claire Caldwell is mortified to see pictures a former boyfriend took with out her knowledge in Harris¿s hands. She decides to pursue Harris since he wants to find this mystery woman. When Claire turns up the heat things really start to sizzle and smolder. Harris and Clair have an amazing bond. Their attraction to each other grabs you and makes you want for more. Uncovered is another out of this world Foster book.
