Description: Law enforcement agent Jubal Graham is back on the job after a shooter took the life of his long-time partner, and sent Jubal into a coma followed by months of rehab. Determined to have justice, Jubal is focused on finding a killer, not a new romantic entanglement. Agent Ellis Banks, however, with his smoldering blue eyes and denim-clad swagger, is a distraction Jubal can't afford--or ignore.
Ellis came to Philadelphia to bust a drug operation; one that connects to the same case agency legend Jubal Graham is working. Ellis finds himself drawn to Jubal, but Jubal holds him off. Sure that Jubal is interested, even though he wears his slain lover's ring, Ellis mounts a determined siege.
Jubal's surprise at having a suitor develops into a growing affection for Ellis, one clouded with old fears. Fate ripped one lover from his arms, and now Ellis is in the line of fire. Jubal's courage can protect Ellis, but is it powerful enough to love him?

"4.5 Nymphs!...The first release by author KC Kendricks that I've had the pleasure of reading and it won't be my last. This well-plotted story is a tale of regret, recovery and new love in the midst of betrayal and danger, with a fast pace, smooth flow and seamless character integration. It has a great beginning and ending and unlike some books, it never lags in the middle; the story barreling forward, at times, at break-neck speed, as it races to the end...Read this one and enjoy. I know I did."--Mystical Nymphs, Literary Nymphs Reviews
He tossed the paper towels he'd been holding in the trash and crossed his arms over his chest. "You talk like you're old, and I know you're not."
"I've got a lot of miles on me, Ellis. I feel old."
Ellis' gaze locked with mine. I knew that interested look, having been on the receiving end of it often enough in my life. It was nice to know I could still turn a head. He reached out and trailed his fingertips down my arm. "You want some help feeling young again?"
I hated to disappoint him. He was a nice looking man, and I couldn't deny my curiosity about him. But... I rebuffed him as gently as I knew how. "Not with a co-worker, Ellis, even a handsome stud like you."
Ellis didn't blink. His chin lifted the slightest bit as those blue eyes saw straight through my act. A warm little glow sparked to life in my belly. I knew by the way he pressed his full, sexy lips together he knew. We stood there staring at each, the air between us sparking with a strange blue lightning. He tried, but he couldn't keep the corner of his mouth from quirking up in a little smile.
"If you change your mind, Jubal, just say so."
I nodded. Ellis pushed off from the counter and walked toward the door. I had one more thing I had to say to him.
He stopped and turned around.
He laughed as the door closed behind him.
