From the national bestselling author of Behind Closed Doors comes a compelling new erotic thriller. In Behind Closed Doors, which Lori Foster called "an erotic thriller you cannot miss, " Shannon McKenna penned a dazzling tale of obsession and desire. Now, the first author to introduce romantic suspense to the Brava line is back with her highly-anticipated new novel, Standing in the Shadows. This is the sequel to Behind Closed Doors and picks up where that book left off - same villain, new hero. Ex-undercover FBI agent Connor McCloud has been marked by betrayal, scarred in body and soul. He was betrayed by Ed Riggs, trusted colleague and friend, losing his partner and almost his life in the process. It cost him everything he had to flush out the traitor and bring him to justice, along with the vicious madman Kurt Novak who corrupted and blackmailed Ed. Now fate has betrayed Connor too. Riggs's shy, lovely, dark-haired daughter Erin is the woman that Connor has been seeing in his dreams for years. The storm of violence that ensued from fulfilling his duty has put her beyond his reach, but it hasn't abated the dull ache of wanting that torments and depresses him. Things go from bad to worse when Novak's fabulous wealth and underworld connections spring him from his cage, for both Erin and Connor have been marked for revenge. Connor will protect her with everything he has left, whether she wants it or not, whether she hates him or not--but he can't hide the fire she kindles inside him, no matter how desperately he tries.
