HIS MISSION WAS TO DESTROY HER. BUT DESIRE GOT IN THE WAY. A product of genetic manipulation, Melanie Milan shares a body with her malevolent sister, Phoebe. A sleek, blond predator with a heart of pure darkness, Phoebe puts their body through the wicked underbelly of sex for thrills--when she's not igniting her pyrokinetic skills for an evil organization bent on taking over the world. Melanie rarely gets out to play--much less fall in love. But that changes when rival ACRO agent Stryker Wills shows up, with a mission to terminate the woman who torched his partner. An operative with rare abilities, Stryker soon realizes that the woman he's about to kill isn't the murderous fire starter he's been hunting. But he does want her. Melanie, with the power to ice anything in her path, is heating things up in ways that are setting fire to his blood. As long as Melanie stays in control, she is his best ally to bring down her sister and stop hellish havoc from being unleashed. Walking a tightrope of longing and hate, Stryker and Melanie begin to understand that true power lies in sweet surrender to each other, to the flames between them, to the erotic adventure that's joined their hearts and abilities to become their salvation--and perhaps the world's.

I have SO thoroughly enjoyed this series! They're HOT, probably more on the erotic side than a typical pnr, action packed and suspenseful...everything that i LOVE in my books! This one, for me, was just as great as the rest of them...it started pretty much where the last one left off..with Stryker on the "hunt" for Phoebe for having killed his best friend. The whole dual personality/twin storyline was great..Phoebe was pure evil!..and Mel was the sweet "twin"...it was interesting to hear how those two came about...and very sad for Mel..how she'd been treated by her sister and father all her life. We were, once again, given a very yummy hero in Stryker! I really liked him with Mel...he started out on his mission with only one thought..to kill Phoebe...but once he realized that Mel was for real...and really had no involvement in his friend's death..he became very protective of her and i loved that, especially since she'd pretty much been alone all her life! Those two were great together!
