Nora Roberts: Nightshade

Colt Nightshade made his living facing danger - alone. But his search for a runaway girl through the seamy side of the city was one time he had to have help - whether he liked it or not. And if a man had to have a partner, he could do a whole lot worse than Althea Grayson. She was all business...and embodied his every pleasure. Soon, trouble became a four-letter word called love.
