Rio North wasn’t ready to leave the SEALs and his brothers in arms, but his destiny called him to Savannah. Born into wealth, he used his family’s fortune to help his teammates. While his friends in the military teased him about being a babe magnet, it took a little help from fate in the form of mistaken identity to connect him with the woman he wanted permanently in his life. If only she’d quit running from him.
Meghan Williams finally has her life under control and has sworn this was the last time she’d let her sister “fix her up” with a blind date… until she walked into the restaurant and saw him. Black slacks and blue shirt… yep. Fit the description. She’d never say a bad word about her sister again.
This charming, handsome man couldn’t be her date. In this case, it sucked to be right. Mistaken identity much? But even after realizing her error, he still wanted to see her again. Nope, nope, nope. He was gorgeous. He drove an expensive import; his family ran the biggest company in Georgia, and she was… everything he wasn’t. Even though her instincts said he was trustworthy, her life experience screamed run.
What’s a girl to do when a gorgeous former SEAL pursues her with the same degree of intensity he brought to his former profession?
A career ending injury forced Creed Lachlan out of the Navy SEALs. Now he works as a freelance contractor for a highly classified sub-set of Homeland Security, the Bone Frog Division. His country calls when it needs his elite skills. His current mission is to identify the production site for emerging “dirty” bombs. If that dictate wasn’t enough, his team must locate the missing CIA agents who’d previously tracked the weapons, and that team’s last known location was Cuba. His contact in Cuba wasn’t the sixty-year-old man he’d been told to expect, but a sultry beauty hellbent on driving him insane.
Mariella Diaz’s uncle sat atop the largest black-market organization in Cuba. Outmaneuvering the corrupt communist regime to provide the people of her country with necessities was second nature. Even so, keeping the sexy American and his team out of danger would require extra diligence. In a game of cat and mouse played out in a deadly arena, Mariella faces a risk more perilous than capture, torture, and imprisonment. She risked losing her heart to Creed Lachlan.
Creed wanted Mariella. He wanted to ease the pain that peeked through her bravado, to love and protect the woman who defied and antagonized him at every turn. Creed’s only concern, could she love a SEAL, forever?
