Former Marine Royce Haverton had needed a break from the bloodshed he’d witnessed time and again during his last combat tour. He’d fulfilled his contract to the Corps and it was now time to move on. Little did he know the job he’d just accepted would lead him down the same violent path as before.
Cailyn Geneva had spent the last three months recovering from a brutal hit and run her family swore was intentional. Another vicious attempt on her life proves their suspicions to be true and her brother takes matters into his own hands by hiring a security firm to look after her. She agrees to do whatever it takes to stay alive…even if that means facing her past mistakes.
Royce doesn’t like surprises, so walking into the office to find an old high school friend calling in a long overdue favor certainly doesn’t make his morning. Neither does discovering a cold-blooded murderer is after the one woman who had once meant everything to him. Will they be given the time to explore the still smoldering desire that lies beneath the surface before a ruthless killer tries to finish what he started?
