WANTEDHe hadn't needed some dossier to remember FBI agent J. J. Barnes. Killer looks. Killer body. Killer instincts. She could take care of herself.Officially, U.S. Marshal Cody Landry led a detail to ensure J.J. lived to deliver testimony against the Russian mob that had tried to assassinate her once already. Unofficially, he was to lure the assassins into the open...using J.J. as bait. Cody hated the idea. Because more primal than his urge to protect this woman was his desire to possess her. But an affair, with secrets still between them, would be wrong.Even deadly.

"Her face," Phoebe whispered urgently. "Look at her face. I don't think that happened last time. Malvolio's possession of her must be almost total." Piper nodded as Paige helped her get to her feet. "No two ways about it. He's definitely getting stronger." C. K. looked around the room, her eyes glittering wildly. "I require a vehicle," she said. "You will provide one." "Okay," Phoebe said, as she carefully got up. "No problem. Mind if we come along for the ride?" C. K. smiled. "Foolish witches," she said. "You think that you can stop me? I am stronger than you can possibly imagine. No power on this earth can prevent what I am about to unleash." "I'll take that as a yes," Phoebe said. She headed for the front hall. Yanking her keys from her purse, she lobbed them across the room toward C. K. "You drive."
Dangerous Desires "Fires and floods, muggings and lost kids." Phoebe shuddered. She had awakened in a great mood, but the news reports in the paper and on TV had demolished it. Natural disaster and human malevolence waged a relentless war against the helpless. At least the Charmed Ones could fight the demonic evil they encountered. "Are you okay?" Concerned, Piper rested a hand on Phoebe's knee. "Yeah, it's just that-I wish my visions weren't so selective because then we could keep more of this awful stuff from happening." Phoebe's stomach suddenly heaved with nausea, and a rush of dizziness made her head spin. Her coffee mug slipped from her hand as she gasped and doubled over. "Phoebe!" Piper threw her arms around her stricken sister and let the mug land on the carpet. "What is it?" Prue jumped from her chair and knelt down by the sofa. "A vision?"

Piper stared at the gun the demon was holding on her, wondering if she could blow it up without letting the demon take her power and use it against her. She ultimately decided that a bullet would do less damage than an explosion. "Look, witch," the demon said. "I don't care about you. Just let me have the Earthshaker and you can go on your merry way." "I think we both know that's not going to happen," Piper replied, shifting her body so she was in front of Muriel. If she had to, she could try to freeze time if the gun was fired. Maybe if she just tried to freeze the bullet and not the demon she wouldn't have her power reflected back. Of course, the idea of freezing a bullet heading at her at the speed of, well, a speeding bullet, was no easy task. Then again, i(j was better than the other option: death.

"What can I tell you? Demons are wacky that way.' Piper said. "They don't always play fair." She rattled her arms in their chains. Nothing doing. Firm as ever. "Your only hope is to let me out of here so my sisters and I can help you." Caitlyn's expression was grim. "Even if I wanted to-which, for the record, I don't," she said emphatically, "I wouldn't be able to. Those chains are enchanted. I don't have the power to break them." "Someone in your village must," Piper said, practically begging. "But that's just it, Piper. We're nowhere near my village," Caitlyn said sweetly. "We're in Lexor's dungeon. He'll be here any minute. You're trapped in the Underworld, my dear."

Piper's eyebrows rose in surprise as she lifted out a red ribbon, knotted in the middle. Where did this come from? she wondered. She was just reaching for the phone to call information when she heard a vibrating sound behind her. She turned to see a tall metal shelving unit, loaded with heavy canned goods, teetering. She watched in shock as it began to fall toward her. Piper threw up her hands-a reaction that usually froze time. But the shelving continued to fall. For the space of a heartbeat, Piper felt stuck in place, unable to summon the power that would save her. She screamed as the shelf swayed forward and the heavy cans tumbled through the air. What's happening to me? Piper asked herself. What's going on with my powers? Why didn't they work?
A brittle tension gripped the room as Paige sat up and flexed her fingers. She hesitated, and then boldly thrust out her hand. Remote!" Leo frowned when nothing happened. A moment later the remote control slowly dissolved into orb particles, which drifted into Paige's hand and slowly re-formed. At first glance the device seemed fine. On closer inspection, she noticed that the lettering formed nonsense words and the buttons were out of line. "Oh, boy," she winced. "That's definitely worse than yesterday." "Which is what I wanted to find out." Leo kept his tone matter-of-fact when the three sisters looked to him for clarification. "Something happened to start the power drain in the first place, and whatever it was, it happened to each of you again since yesterday." The girls looked baffled. "Nothing happened," Paige insisted. "Yes, it did," Leo said firmly. "Nothing else can account for the diminished powers and the excessive physical and emotional side effects you're all experiencing. You've all encountered something in the past few days that you've never run into before. "And whatever it was, you came into contact with it twice."
I'm glad i ran into you, Paige," josh said. "Why?" Paige asked apprehensively. She leaned back against the clammy brick wall of P3's alley. "Because," Josh continued, leaning in. His voice got deeper, almost robotic. And his face began to change too, darkening into a sinister glower. Paige could feel his breath-hot and fetid-gust onto her face. "You've got my heart." Paige glanced down and saw Josh's hand reaching toward her chest. His arm was shaking, as if infused with some sort of electricity. And as his fingertips brushed the bare skin above the low-cut bodice of her dress, his nails instantly grew into glinting, razorlike talons.

rapped in paradise "I'm sure you already know this, but I have to tell you, your home is beautiful," Paige said, walking along the periphery of the library, taking in the leather-bound titles as Micah followed closely behind. "And I'm sure you already know this, but so are you," Micah said. "It was so important to me that you love this place as much as I do," he continued quietly. "But I knew. I knew the moment you saw it that you had fallen in love." A warm rush raced over Paige's skin as he moved his hands to her waist. She looked up at him, her eyelids heavy. "How could I not?" she said. "It's ... fascinating." As they gazed into each other's eyes, Paige felt the same dizzying sensation she'd experienced at the restaurant the night before, but it was okay. She was beginning to enjoy it-this feeling of being lost in his eyes. "You haven't even seen the best part yet," Micah said, his voice throaty. "The best part?" she repeated, temporarily incapable of forming her own thoughts. "The garden," Micah said, his eyes flashing with excitement. "You have to see the garden."
