Lights. Camera...die. Detective Scarlet Reid has spent the past three months trying to make her alter ego, Ms. December, a ghost of Christmas past. Forced to become the sexy centerfold in a high-stakes undercover assignment, she's spent more time pulling copies of her naked butt off the bulletin boards at the precinct than she has collaring criminals-and its far from over. A deadly agenda. A gruesome new case has revealed a disturbing trend-one that has placed Scarlet on a list of possible targets. With limited options, she's going to have to resurrect Ms. December-and her old partnership-which means facing the one man who stole more than just a kiss. A love worth fighting for. Federal Agent Roman Kinkaid has some explaining to do. His final assignment with Scarlet changed him, and he's been running from her ever since. But he's ready to make things right-only he's not alone. His partner and lover, Special Agent Aiden Cross, is just as invested and determined as Roman is to claim Scarlet as theirs. And they arent taking no for an answer, especially when their souls-and Scarlets life-are on the line. They have three weeks to catch the stalker before Scarlets time runs out and they lose their one chance at a happy ending.
