Sometimes, the deepest scars are the ones that can't be seen.
Single mom Peyton Ward works three jobs to make ends meet. At Linear Tactical, she’s surrounded by heroes on a regular basis, but none of them are hers. She thought she'd found one in Linear’s silent partner and country music superstar Cade Conner.
She was wrong.
Unintended wounds still cut as deep.
Cade may not work day-to-day operations at Linear, but he takes the mission of the company he helped create - teaching survival intelligence and self-defense skills to the people who need them most - seriously. And finding out he’s wounded Peyton in the worst way possible weighs on him.
So, when danger on two separate fronts closes in on her, he will damn well be by her side, making sure that they survive, so he can right his personal wrongs.
He might not have been a Special Forces soldier, but Cade Conner knows how to fight. And Peyton is a woman worth fighting for.
