"a wonderful book that I'd recommend to anyone"

Andreas who is an agent for Dept 57, a division of national intelligence for the talented and supernatural, is undercover trying to find an information leak in the Department of Internal Business. A vampire with psi abilities, he is playing the office hound dog so he can check all of the employees and find the leak. Some one or some agency is kidnapping talents and experimenting on them, it has to be stopped. Andreas has left Roz for last because he could imagine dating her for real and with his persona he knows that she won't fall for him.

Roz Templeton, a vampire who is undercover in the Department of Internal Business for her family, is trying to find information on two murders of the family last year. The family members had been found tortured. She is willing to do anything to get this information and stop it from happening again. When her boss at DIB tells her to go undercover at Dept 57 and use Andreas as a lover for cover; she thinks this is above and beyond the call of duty. Once they are alone though, the sparks fly and they can't keep they're hands off of each other.

I loved this book, couldn't put it down. The plot twists and turns so much that you are never quite sure who the bad guy is. I enjoyed this book so much that I will be looking for the others in the series. Lynne Connolly created a rich plot line with detailed secondary characters; she makes you care about the characters and want to find out more about them. Ms Connolly will be an author that I will be watching for. This is a wonderful book that I'd recommend to anyone. I can't wait to read the next one.

The agents of Department 57 protect man from Talent and Talent from man…

When Department 57 suspects someone is leaking information to another CIA department, Cristos sends Andreas Constant in. Vampire and full-time field agent for the CIA, Andreas’s only loyalty is to the job. Until he sets eyes on sexy Roz Templeton. Posing as the office wolf, Andreas is beginning to hate this assignment. He hates it even more when he realizes Roz is another vampire. And his number one suspect.

When Roz discovers who killed two members of her family, the culprit will die. Andreas is a distraction. She can’t understand why she’s drawn to him—he’s a sleaze. When she discovers he’s working on the same case and an orphan vampire without family loyalty, she knows she has to find the culprit before Andreas does. When danger strikes, Roz’s life is on the line and only the trust and the passion they've found in each other can save her.
