His first assignment is to keep journalist Eve Marrin safe--without Eve knowing she's being protected. He's surprised by the strength of his attraction for her. Now Xavier not only needs to watch his back--he also has to watch his heart. For Eve Marrin, her new job as co-lead reporter for a popular public affairs program is a dream come true.
