Meet the Author

Barbara McCauley is the author of 17 Silhouette Desires on the Waldenbooks bestseller list. Her first Silhouette Intimate Moments, Gabriel's Honor, was released in August, 2000. Her work has been nominated three times for the Best Short Con

Maureen Child is a native Southern Californian who is still waiting for evidence that autumn actually exists. She's written 40 books since making her first sale in 1990, and is as excited about writing today as she was then.

When she's not writing, Maureen and her husband like to travel, and usually drag her parents along for the ride. There's nothing quite like a road trip with three people reading different maps and shouting instructions to the poor driver, Maureen's long-suffering husband. But all that traveling gives her a lot of research material for more books.

When she's at home, Maureen rides herd on a busy house filled with two grown children, their assorted friends, and the world's most confused golden retriever, Abbey. Abbey, unfortunately, is afraid of the wind. She knows something is out there, but she can't see it, and refuses to leave the shelter of the house alone on windy days. So look for Maureen on cold, windy nights. She'll be in the backyard, holding Abbey's paw.

Maureen loves to hear from fans. You can write her at: Maureen Child, P.O. Box 1883, Westminster, CA 92684-1883.

Sheri WhiteFeather has worked as a retail manager, a video makeup artist and a freelance leather artisan. Since her one true passion is writing, she thrives on the joy of entertaining her readers with her imagination. She credits her husband, Dru, a tribally enrolled member of the Muscogee Creek Nation, for inspiring many of her stories. His love of animals has brought a menagerie of ever-changing companions into her life, including horses, dogs, snakes, lizards, ferrets, hawks, falcons, owls and Bengal cats.

Sheri and Dru live in a cowboy community in Central Valley, California, and have two grown children, a son and a daughter, who inherited their dad's dark hair and deep brown eyes. Sheri's hobbies include ethnic dining, attending powwows, decorating with antiques and shopping in thrift stores for jackets from the 60s and 70s, items that mark her interest in vintage western wear and hippie fringe.

She writes passionate romances for the Silhouette Desire series and has crafted several paranormal/suspense Silhouette Bombshell novels, enjoying both genres. Most of her books feature American Indian characters. Her favorite Desire heroes to create are modern-day warriors, men with powerful hearts and strong souls. Her favorite Bombshell heroines are wicked, witty, kick-ass women who tackle whatever comes their way.

Sheri, an Italian American, claims a rich ancestry from great-grandparents who immigrated to the United States. She has also written books with mob-driven plots, drawing from interviews with family members about deceased Mafia relatives.

She loves to hear from her readers. Visit her web site at http://www.sheriwhitefeather.com.

Chapter One

He felt naked without a gun.

Normally, Nick could hide a piece somewhere, the small of his back or the boot holster he often wore when he was undercover. But security at Steam had been tight as a tick and he hadn't dared draw any attention to himself. An informant had tipped the DEA that one of the bartenders who worked at the newest, trendiest nightclub and restaurant in Savannah was smuggling drugs. The information, though sketchy, had been reliable enough for the department to set up an operation.

Nick, lucky dog that he was, had drawn the duty.

Because it was a Saturday night, the club was at maximum capacity. Though Steam wasn't the kind of place Nick would have ever stepped foot into usually, he supposed he could understand the draw. The live blues bands were top-notch, the food five-star and the ambience in the club oozed sex. Deep verandas, black iron lacework, red velvet draperies, dark mahogany floors. Beautiful people.

Lots of beautiful people.

Glancing around the room while he filled an order for one of the cocktail waitresses, Nick took in the tempting, not to mention abundant, display of female skin surrounding him. The women who frequented the club were too chi-chi for his taste, but he'd have to be dead not to appreciate their assets. He had a glove box full of phone numbers slipped to him over the past two weeks, and while he wouldn't mind a night of uncomplicated sex, he wasn't interested in being some spoiled princess's pet.

While the band in the adjacent room slipped into a ballad as soulful as it was sultry, Nick slid a finger under the collar of the dark-red bartender's shirt he wore and stretched his neck. All night he'd had a feeling. Nothing he could put a name to. Just a feeling. But so far the evening had been as routine, as boring, as it had been for the past two weeks.

"Raferty," the head bartender, Grady, called to Nick from the cash register, "you close with Joyce tonight. Marcos, you're off in ten."

"Sure thing." Nick smiled amiably and Marcos, who'd already started cleaning his station, waved a hand of acknowledgment.

The bartenders at Steam were an odd mix. Grady, a burly Boston Irishman who ran the bar with the stern arm of a militia man. Bronx, aptly named since his transplant from a popular New York club. Marcos, a Savannah native and son of an affluent plastic surgeon. Grady was the only one of the group who'd ever been arrested, once for assault and once for destruction of private property, but both charges had been dropped.

On the surface, none of the men fit the profile of a drug smuggler, but Nick knew better than to trust what was on the surface. If in fact one of these men were in the drug business, sooner or later they'd give themselves away. Nick just hoped it would be sooner.

Knowing that Grady would be busy with Bronx while they balanced the night's till, Nick considered ducking out for a few minutes to search the head bartender's private office. He'd tried once before, but the club's manager, Sophia Alexander, had nearly caught him. Though the blonde rarely spoke to him, Nick had felt the icy chill of her green gaze more than once. He knew that she was watching him, that she was suspicious. One wrong move on his part and she could blow his cover and the operation. She frustrated the hell out of him.

In more ways than one.

Nick had seen beautiful women before, but Sophia had the kind of looks that turned men into drooling fools. Skin as smooth as cream, exotic, jade-green eyes fringed with dark lashes, golden blond hair that always looked as if she'd just tumbled out of bed. She had a body that matched her face, with legs that never seemed to end. He'd allowed himself a fantasy or two. He was human, after all.

But Nick was no fool, and he never drooled over any woman.

Because it was his job to know everything going on around him, Nick had listened to the rumors about Sophia. Heard that she was hands-off to employees and customers alike. The owner's personal property, one cocktail waitress had said with a wink. He'd heard another waitress say that the blonde was just an ornament for Clay Crawford, that she was shallow and conceited and self-centered. Though Nick had never seen any evidence that the gossip was true, it didn't matter to him one way or the other. Whatever Sophia Alexander was, and whoever, had no impact on Nick's world at all. He simply wanted her out of his way.

"Hey, pal, how 'bout a Bud?"

Nick looked up at the familiar voice. His partner, Kurt Matthews, who'd been assigned to mingle with the club regulars and the staff, grinned at him from the other side of the bar.

"Lite?" Nick asked casually.

"Regular."

Nick nodded. Kurt's response was the code they'd set up between them. Regular meant nothing was going down, but lite meant something was suspicious.
