Accustomed to simple security work, Cassidy Macayla finds herself in over her head, coerced by difficult circumstances and a well-meaning employer to accept an unusual proposition: Help Special Agent Chase Averey during his recovery, and hope they don’t die in the process. Danger lurks around every corner, and she has enough to worry about without the handsome, dangerous blast from the past who insists on adding to an already complicated set of circumstances.
Chase Averey suffers from several injuries, including amnesia, the result of a devastating attack while returning from an intelligence mission. It was a double-cross, but by who? During the chaotic event he hid the information, but due to amnesia, can’t remember where. It’s a race against time as they try to outwit an enemy out to find out what he knows and destroy him in the process.
The last thing he expects is Cassidy, the woman that disappeared long ago without a word, and left him with more questions than answers. Not only must he survive long enough to remember the vital aspect of his mission, but discover what she’s hiding. Each layer of secrets peeled away only begs more questions and pulls him into a dark world he isn’t ready to see. One filled with pain, danger, and fear that threatens to tear her apart.
The simmering build up of attraction pulling them together is unstoppable, but when difficulties with trust and pain mix with danger, there’s no telling the outcome. Can they survive and build on the underlying connection that’s always been there, or will they lose everything, including his memory – and their lives?
Gabrielle thinks she has finally escaped a painful past but witnessing a crime brings on a whole new nightmare. She doesn’t remember them but they certainly remember her and after finding out where she lives, terror follows. That’s when her best friends’ father, Victor, brings in Donovan, a man who’s brought out of his regular routine to help flush out her tormentors so justice can ensue. Gabrielle doesn’t expect this man with his devastating bad-boy looks to have an old-fashioned charm and thoughtful attitude unlike anything she’s ever seen, and Donovan soon learns she’s nothing like the women who have burned him before. Danger mounts when he discovers they share more than just a reason to distrust as part of their pasts collide. Now he must not only fight for their lives, but a chance at something neither thought they’d have.
