To keep the world safe, the undercover agent known as Angel has given up everything, including the only woman he ever loved. Now he’s back in her orbit, completely unrecognizable, and still magnetically attracted to her.

Ten years ago, Mark Risa of Mossad met Sonya Butler of Interpol, and they fell in love. After he was asked “to choose between the woman he loved and the stability of the world at large,” Mark didn’t expect to survive and let Sonya believe he was dead. After years of shadowy ops, surgeries to change his face, procedures to change his eye color and ravage his vocal chords, Mark has emerged as “Angel” and is now undercover to draw the notorious crime lord Spider into a criminal act that will put him away for good. Spider is known for manipulating people into working for him, and Angel, with help from the covert defense group Black Knights Inc., has ostensibly placed himself at Spider’s mercy: good for putting Spider out of action, bad for Angel’s equilibrium, since Sonya is currently Spider’s right-hand woman, completely under his thumb and a shadow of her former self. Despite Angel's new identity, Sonya is clearly drawn to him, and each day he’s with her, the more tempted he is to tell her the truth, despite the danger. Sonya, however, has her own bag of tricks and secrets. A slightly over-the-top but highly fun and satisfying plot ties up all the loose ends of Walker's Black Knights Inc. couples and cases, including Rusty and Ace’s secondary romance that’s simmered through the last few titles.

Walker’s popular Black Knights Inc. series ends its first chapter with another explosive, action-packed, not-to-be missed romantic adventure that includes a satisfying wrap-up and a hint at what comes next.
