Combine: 1 pissed off former Marine, 1 ex-wife, Shake. Recipe for disaster … or for a second chance that will leave them both breathless? Hot off a rescue mission, Booker “The Spaniard” Maldano wants nothing more than to go home to Montana and sleep until his next assignment. Before the blood even dries from his injuries, his next assignment presents itself … in the form of his ex-wife—the woman who divorced him twelve years ago without explanation.

If Ellie King could have picked the day to end her estrangement from her ex-husband, the day she lands in the emergency room wouldn’t have been it. She has enough problems to worry about—like figuring out who broke into her house and knocked her around, and why he thought she had the flash drive he was looking for. After a near miss with a black SUV in the hospital parking lot, it’s clear Ellie needs protection and Booker is just the man for the job. And while he’s at it, he damn well intends to find out why she left him all those years ago.

Old feelings run deep, and new longings refuse to be denied. But if Booker and Ellie are going to have a chance at a future, they will have to first confront their past … and the evil that lurks in the shadows.
