About TWISTED DESIRE by Sharon Kay
From New York Times bestselling author Cristin Harber and Award-winning author Sharon Kay comes an exciting collaboration…
Rhys MacLeod is a warrior first and a hacker second. Preserving the balance of power among supernatural beings is his prime directive, as well as keeping it far from human eyes. The discovery of a man killed by magical force on a Chicago street lands him on an op he didn’t expect. He’s good, but solving this crime requires a call to the best of the best.
Parker Black of Titan Group never met a network he couldn’t infiltrate. Along with Titan team member Locke Oliver and Megan, a scientist who witnessed the murder, they uncover a maze of encrypted files and unethical DNA manipulation.
Rhys is duty bound to keep all supernatural details hidden from his human friends, so identifying the killer becomes more complicated when clues indicate the perp isn’t human. And when the murderer shows up at their location, every second counts before its true nature is revealed.
Get your hands on TWISTED DESIRE and all of the Titan World books now!
Read an Excerpt
She sipped some kind of flavored chai latte thing and dug into a blueberry muffin. “So, I googled Titan last night.”
“Yeah?” The combination of her soft voice and direct statement sounded sexy, though Locke knew the Titan website was anything but. It was slick and basic. All vital details went through Jared Westin, who seemed to know everything important going on in the world at any given time. “What’d ya think?”
She gave him a piercing look “I can’t tell exactly what you do. You said private investigation last night, but the site has a lot of stuff that…”
He studied her with a half smile, waiting to see how she would describe the glossed over version of Titan’s work.
“Well, it’s like out of an action movie. Or the news. Government stuff going on in the Middle East…security, risk management.” Her brows knit together. “I don’t really get it, but maybe I shouldn’t.”
“All you need to know is we protect those who need it, and lock up the ones who cause harm.”
She tilted her head. “Do you go all over the world doing this stuff?”
“Europe. Africa. Middle East.” He took a swig of his coffee.
“Middle East,” she repeated with a hushed, awed tone. “With terrorists?”
He nodded. She didn’t need to hear details.
“Jesus,” she murmured, barely audible. “And now you’re stuck babysitting me.”
He shook his head. “Not babysitting. Someone at your workplace was brutally murdered and Christ, Megan, you’re a witness. We’re not gonna let anything happen to you.”
“I-I really don’t think that person—or whatever it was—saw me.”
“Doesn’t matter. We don’t know, and until we do, we’ll keep you safe. And you’re helping us out. Trying to read those files.”
She frowned. “I don’t feel like I helped much.”
He reached across the table to cover her small hand with his. “Trust me, you did.” Hell, she kept her cool when others would have screamed or panicked. Instead, Megan had dug into Jerry’s files with an interest he could only watch in awe, rattling off cell-count-this and electrolyte-that.
Her eyes met his as a tiny smile tilted her lips. She didn’t pull her hand away, but twisted it in his. With her other fingers, she lightly traced his knuckles. “Do you flirt with all the girls you protect?”
“No.” That was the god’s honest truth. Better not to fuck the job, as his boss Rocco liked to warn. But something about this tiny, smart-as-hell woman got under his skin. Never mind that he’d known her less than a day.
