The wizarding world prepares for the final war with Lord Voldemort, and Severus Snape is Albus Dumbledore’s spy in the Death Eaters’ den. One false step may bring death to him and any number of his comrades. Trapped in a profession he hates, living in his despised childhood home; he can count his friends on one hand (with fingers to spare).

 

Until American bounty hunter Miranda Rose crashes into his life. Charming, bold, and sensual, she sees something in him that he hardly believes is there. But as their entanglement ensnares his senses, Miranda is dragged into Severus’s web of danger and deceit. When she is sent on a deadly mission to Romania, he must find a way to help her—or risk losing the person who has made his life worth living again.
