Marc - 2 years out of TFlac, mourning because he killed who he believed was an assasin that was the woman he loved - when Alex (his expartner) comes tohim with proof that she was in fact a double spy, and intended to kill him... and Alex was going in to stop the terrorist group she was a part of, with or without Marc's help... without...

and 2 weeks later his burned, tortured body is recovered (identified by dental records)... and Alex continues isolate himself... until 7 months later, Victoria shows up...

Victoria, an enigma... waist long, luxurious hair, illfitting, librarian type clothes over a killer body, shy and confrontive, virginal and sexy, coward and courageous... she is Alex's twin sister, and psychically tied together... she went to the island where Alex was being held and found him, though she was captured and knocked around for 2 weeks (broken arm & bruises to show for it)... and she goes to Marc to rescue Alex...

And Marc does not know what to make of things... not trusting his own judgement, attracted to her, yet wary, hopeful about Alex, yet not convinced -

Marc takes Victoria to the island (to use her psychic link)... they hide out in a cavern with hot springs and a whirlpool that dumps back into the ocean... he pushes her, both physically and emotionally... as they track down her brother... her runs hot and cold...

but he cannot stay out of her arms... and she falls in lvoe withhim...

and they rescue Alex, and 3 months later she's pregnant trying to convince herself that even if Marc loved her it would never work out.. . until he comes back, having completed the mission on the island and wants his quiet life back, on his Wyoming ranch with her... Alex's love story next?
