Contemporary Romance

Portland, Oregon

Sean “Metal” O’Brien is a former Navy SEAL medic that knows exactly what to do with a gorgeous, bleeding woman that is on the run who falls into his arms.  Keep her safe while tending to her and healing her.

The one thing he seems unable to do is keep his guard up around her.  With her haunted, hunted beauty she knocks down all of his defenses.

Facility Ward knows all about secrets.  She was raised in the Witness Protection program and her whole childhood has been one huge lie.  What she never imagined that was that her family’s secrets could spark a nuclear war. Secrets she never knew she was keeping.

Even with the life she has led nothing prepared her for the sexy, tough warrior that has saved her life and has now vowed to protect that life no matter what the cost.

This is a story that starts out fast and never stops.  The action and romance are non-stop and makes for a book that is hard to put down.  The characters are complex and fascinating and they move the plot of the book along very well.  It also gives a little glimpse into a history that is long gone.  The story will also have readers wanting to read more from this author.  The secondary characters prove to add a lot to the story line while not detracting in the least.  Readers will want more from this world as they will hate to leave it once the story is over.
