Don’t miss this first book in a sexy and suspenseful new series!!
In the deep blue ocean lives an ancient predator…
Dr. Grace Mann knows great white sharks. As the daughter of an obsessed shark researcher based at the Farallon Islands, Grace spent her childhood in the company of these elegant and massive creatures. When a photo of her freediving with a great white goes viral, the institute where she works seeks to capitalize on her new-found fame by producing a documentary about her work.
Underwater filmmaker Alec Galloway admires Dr. Mann and jumps at the opportunity to create a film showcasing the pretty biologist. As he heads to Guadalupe Island in Baja California Sur for a three-week expedition, it’s clear that his fan-boy crush on Grace is turning into something more serious. But even more pressing—Grace’s passionate focus on the sharks just might get her killed.

“Tell me something crazy about you,” she said.
“I have a dog.”
She lowered her eyebrows. “Okay. I guess that’s crazy, since I doubt you’re hardly ever home.”
“True. She stays with my parents. She really adores my mom.”
“What kind of dog is she?”
“A golden lab.”
“What’s her name?”
She released a bark of laughter. “You’re full of it.”
“No, it’s true. Her name is Grace Kelly. I could introduce you one day. I think she’d like you—kindred spirits and all that.”
She couldn’t shake the smile from her lips as she turned her gaze back to the ocean that shimmered under the crescent moon, pleased that Alec dangled a future between them.
And then she remembered that maybe he was saying nice things to get her in the sack, that maybe he had no intention of following through with such suggestions, that maybe, in the end, he’d be like Brad. The smile left her face.
“You’re overthinking it, Grace.”
Her eyes locked with his. “You’re awfully sure of yourself.”
“Around you? Hardly. But there is one thing I am sure of.”
“And what’s that?”
“I’m not going to let a chance with you go by.”
Ah, hell. It worked for her.
She held his gaze, letting him know that he had a free pass to first base.
He leaned forward and kissed her, his lips warm and inviting, his skin smelling of sweat and sunscreen. He scooted closer and kissed her again, and she slanted her mouth against his, sinking into the delicious sensations that had lived only in her daydreams until this moment.
She brought a hand to his cheek, her fingertips brushing along the stubble, and then slid it to the back of his neck. The kiss changed, deepening, as Alec pulled her into his arms.
When she surfaced for air, she thought to say something funny, but he’d literally knocked the wind from her. Like flash lightning, her body was on fire everywhere. She brought her mouth to his again and let loose the desire coursing through her. Lack of sex for well over a year apparently wasn’t good for a person, and she suddenly wanted to remedy that. With Alec.
