Zoe Kealoha is a military research scientist. Her work is aimed at saving lives, but when intruders force their way inside her home, she only has seconds to hide beneath her bed. As she hears the heavy crunch of footfalls creep closer, she realizes her quiet, orderly world is about to be upended.
Unlike Zoe’s well-ordered world of hypothesis and laboratory-controlled environments, Gage Harrison loves the rush of risk. A member of the United States Marine’s elite Raider unit, Gage is a warrior in every sense of the word. His soft spot is Zoe. When he hears desperate screams from inside her home, his instinct and training switch from lover to guardian. He’ll stop at nothing to save Zoe from whatever evil lurks behind her bedroom door.
While Gage may have thwarted an attempt on Zoe’s life, he recognizes the skill of the men sent to abduct her. They, like he, were trained killers. And Gage knows they’ll be back. Gage and his team are willing to risk everything to protect Zoe, but untangling the sticky web of intrigue and finding the person behind her attempted abduction isn’t as clear-cut as it seems.
Meet Brian Ackerman. He wears a tie to work. He also wears a gun.
Brian’s work as one of the nation’s top security professionals has fueled his lust for adrenaline-laced danger. While Brian’s private life may seem risky, his professional life is strictly business. Until he accepts two private protection contracts that is.
Two security assignments seem simple enough. Brian’s been wrong before.
The first assignment involves protecting archaeologists, Sophia Abadi and Nadia Dajani. While digging to uncover a remote site is a bit mundane by Brian’s standard, he welcomes the chance and the challenge.
The second assignment requires Brian to do his own digging to uncover the truth. The thrill seeker is contracted by the FBI to discover who is financing ISIS through the sale of conflict relics from Syria. Problem is, his suspects are also the two archaeologists.
Brian is a professional. The truth is always clear cut. Brian’s been wrong before.
His initial introductions to both esteemed scientists not only reveal the challenges of protecting them, but a shocking dilemma of honoring his security contract. Seems the woman he’d fallen for after one incredible night in New York is the very same Sophia he’s now charged with protecting and leading into an FBI trap.
Meet Brian Ackerman. He has a gun. He also has a heart.
A deadly foreign crisis looms. It’s effect threatens to vibrate across the globe. The world’s most elite scientists have assembled in Tanzania to work on an impossible resolution. It’s an epic, humanitarian cause.
Heightening the risk to the cadre of scientists, notorious terrorists have selectively targeted key players among the team. One of the central researchers, Meg Finley not only holds the key to the solution, but to the heart of another type of hero.
Rooster Honig, former United States Army Delta operative, and renowned hostage negotiator, is caught in the global war on terror’s clutches. It’s up to him to protect the captives. But negotiating from a position of unknowns makes his task even more difficult. The terrorists’ demands teeter between profit and propaganda. If he guesses wrong it might mean lives—especially his true love, Meg Finley.
