If no one gets close, no one will know she’s broken…

Haunted by nightmares after a terrible attack, detective Iselin Marr takes a transfer to quiet Gravenhill where no one knows her history. If she can just keep her head down, handle the simple small-town cases, and not allow any romantic complications, her psyche can heal.

Except her first day on the job threatens everything. Gravenhill’s only—and never apprehended—serial killer is murdering again, mutilating women in ways that make Iselin’s nightmares worse, and her new partner, detective Tyler Kelly, is sexier than sin. Their instant sizzling attraction threatens her resolve, but with the killer’s accelerating murder rate, she can’t let Tyler in. He’ll see how psychologically damaged she is and pull her from the case before she can prove to herself she’s stronger than her nightmares… if the killer doesn’t find her first.

If Morgan had thought life couldn’t get more complicated, she was dead wrong. The attraction between her and Gage has risen to sizzling heights—making Lachlin determined to force her from the team.

Even clearing her name might not keep her from prison.

After chasing down a Kin fugitive, Morgan Jacobs must face the truth: she’s dangerous. And the only way to protect herself and those around her is to gain control over her powers. But a madman, Ander, is toying with her, torturing her physically and psychologically, and in the end he plans to murder her.

She’d love to lock herself away, hide from the threat and get her powers under control, but Rika — the team’s computer specialist — is accused of hacking a Kin leader’s server and stealing all the secrets on it, and that leader is threatening to charge the entire team with the crime. Now the team needs to clear Rika’s name, figure out who hacked the server, and return the stolen secrets — before they’re all locked up alongside the fugitive they just apprehended.
