Her divorce from her controlling husband is final, and a Vegas hair stylist convention is the perfect place to cut loose. Yet she can't quite shake the feeling she's being watched.

And he'd like to keep it that way. When he spots free-spirited, blue-haired Sydney tossing a coin into a Luxor fountain, he feels the punch in the gut that family lore says all Drake men feel when they meet their match. One weekend with her has him thinking about forever. Until his assistant tracks him down with dreadful news. One cousin is dead, ather is missing. Hadrian is the Crown Prince of Koros-the last job in the world he ever wanted. Worse, he and Sydney are next in line on a killer's list.
