Former Navy SEAL Joe Harris nearly died-twice-on a medevac helo after being blown up by an IED. HeA??s not moving too great these days, but if there was ever a woman designed to jump start a manA??s hormones, it would be his new neighbor. Meeting Isabel-loving Isabel-brought Joe back to life. Isabel Delvaux came from one of AmericaA??s foremost political dynasties, until the greatest terrorist attack since 9/11 killed her entire family. She barely survived the Washington Massacre, only to become prey for rabid reporters. Fleeing to Portland and changing her name was a way out, a way to start over. The only way. She knows sheA??s safe with Joe Harris. Not just because he's big and strong, not just because he's part of a security team that obliterates threats on the regular, but because heA??s been to the abyss and back. But as they help each other heal-through talk, through touch, through spectacular sex-the past comes back to play. When IsabelA??s memory starts to return and a mysterious stranger sends Joe emails indicating sheA??s in imminent danger, he'll do anything to help her uncover the truth. Even if that truth is the most terrifying thing of allA?
