Even the deepest peril couldn't keep him away from her.
As an anti-terrorism operative in T-FLAC's classified paranormal unit, the intrepid, ruggedly handsome Gabriel Edge protects the world from the forces of evil. So when an ingenious and extremely volatile invention is stolen from a covert lab in Arizona, Gabriel zeroes in on the brilliant young scientist who helped to create the device. From Gabriel's first contact, Eden Cahill leaves an indelible impression.
Using a mysterious telepathic power as ancient as his Scottish heritage, as well as his seductive physical charms, Gabriel must infiltrate Eden's mind to uncover the secrets she so desperately protects. But Gabriel is in a bind-for the only way to penetrate Eden's memories is through one shared intimate encounter that will trigger revelations, shatter lives, and just might save humanity-all at a terribly steep price.

Excerpt from Edge of Danger by Cherry Adair
' I don ' t give a damn if it ' s a matter of national security or not, ' Gabriel Edge savagely told the man he held at sword point. ' I am not having sex with that woman. '
The two men could have been sword fighting in medieval Scotland instead of twenty-first-century Montana. But both the castle and the heavy claymores the two T-FLAC operatives so expertly wielded were the real deal.
For several minutes the only sounds in the Great Hall were their breathing, the clash of ancient steel and the soft sibilant shush of bare feet on stone. Swordplay was a well-choreographed dance, and they knew how to keep it interesting.
Their blades slid against each other ritually as the men circled each other, feinting, testing for weakness, wait-ing for a split-second opening. Slightly better conditioned for a sport that required both strength and dexterity, Gabriel intentionally moved off balance to fool his opponent. Then, keeping his swift curse mental instead of verbal, sidestepped Sebastian Tremayne ' s lightning-fast return thrust.
Pleased with himself, Sebastian shot him a triumphant glance. ' Your country nee ' '
' Same tune. ' From a high guard Gabriel made a strong downward cut, the blade of his broadsword flashing silver in the early morning sunlight streaming through the high arched windows. He moved with a feline grace and speed that had Sebastian backing up. Fast.
The first time Gabriel had set eyes on Dr. Eden Cahill he ' d felt this same cold clench in his gut. It was getting worse.
' I ' ll find another way, ' he assured his friend grimly. And he would. As soon as he damn well came up with something that would work just as quickly, and just as well, as having sex with her.
Sebastian almost took off Gabriel ' s hand because he was so distracted. He ' d taught his friend well. ' Good one. ' He brought his attention back to the task at hand. Cutting back on the inhale, he halted his own strike an inch from his friend ' s heart. Again. ' You ' re dead, ' he said with satisfaction.
They straightened and parted, each pausing to wipe the sweat from their eyes with their forearms. They were in hour two of practicing cuts and strikes. They ' d stop soon. But not yet.
' Ready ' Gabriel asked after a few moments ' rest, replacing both hands on the leather hilt of his sword.
' Yeah. ' Tremayne stepped back, sword raised.
