PROTECTING THE INNOCENT
Undercover CIA operative Roman Alexander is investigating the unscrupulous dealings of Legate Corporation. He suspects the famous think tank was behind the explosion that killed his best friend, Jeremy, whose widow, Anya, has enrolled their genius son, Charlie, in Legate's educational program. Protecting mother and son is Roman's focus, but becoming Anya's lover proves a welcome distraction. Protecting the Innocent (4.5) is action-packed and boasts a sexy hero that illuminates the pages. Cassie Miles also does an admirable job of justifying the characters' motivations.
