do cover



In New York Times bestselling author Elle James’s latest, one woman finds she’s unsafe in her own home—and in her heart… 

Real estate whiz Jillian Taylor thinks heroes and haunted houses are bogus. But when a series of strange events leaves her in danger, Stealth Ops Specialist Chance McCall is quick to the scene. Jillian can’t resist the chemistry brewing between her and the sexy agent. But as she and Chance deconstruct her nightmares, someone becomes more desperate to keep those secrets from surfacing.

Chance knows there’s more going on at the derelict Victorian manor than just ghosts—just as he knows there’s something about the blonde beauty he can’t resist. If only he could help decipher the meaning of Jillian’s tortured dreams…and keep her safe in his arms forever.
