One night of sin...
He’s been watching her—from the slopes, in the restaurant—and now he’s here, in the dimly lit bar of the swanky Vail resort, pretending not to notice her from across the crowded room. Songwriter Grace Ryder has never liked the spotlight, but her skin tingles whenever his mysteriously sexy gaze drifts her way. His muscular body may be built for danger, but those tempting lips scream sweet relief. Only one night will prove whether he’s safety or sin.

...will lead to a dangerous game of surrender.
Aegis operative Brian Walker’s orders are clear: observe, but don’t touch. Grace Ryder is off limits in every way possible. Things change, though, the moment the leggy brunette makes him an offer he can’t refuse. Desire leads to seduction and one night of surrender that will test both Brian’s personal and professional limits. And though his dark cravings win out, the cost could be more than he’s ready to accept. Because lurking in the shadows, a stalker’s waiting for the moment to strike, and if Brian’s not careful, his obsession for a woman he never should have touched could get them both killed.

My rating:

His boss' sister is being stalked, so Brian Walker, being the closest to her vacation spot, is assigned to keep an eye on her. Unfortunately, Grace's friend convinces her to jump the sexy stranger's bones, and Brian soon finds it really hard to keep his hands off her.

The premise with the stalker was good, but everything else wasn't. The stalker was too predictable, Brian's pretense screamed trouble later in the story, both leads were one-dimensional, and the plot, beside the stalker (and that was minor), was nonexistent.

And since there was no plot, the "story" had to be filled with something to fill the pages. Why not make it sex. And since it was just filler, the sex read like PWP, there was no chemistry, no heat, nothing...The characters just went through with the moves.
This story had absolutely no "soul".
