He’ll do anything to protect her.
Blackhawk Security search and rescue operative Max Logan’s assignment to protect a witness quickly becomes a race against the clock when he saves Emma Chastaine from an attack. Determined to keep her safe until she’s able to testify against her former boss, he struggles to stay on assignment as Emma proves she’s more than capable of protecting herself. And sexy as hell. But the gravitational pull between him and this witness just might be enough for Max to consider risking it all.
Discovering her boss wants her dead is enough to keep Emma Chastaine on the edge of caution. But now that she’s become the target of a hitman, the only one standing between her and certain death is the seriously attractive search and rescue operative determined to make her trust again. As passion begins to break down the barriers she’s set between them, a new kind of tempting danger closes in, the kind that will either make or break her.
“You should’ve kept running, Emma.”
Fear raced through Emma Chastaine’s system as the man straddling her chest pressed the knife into her throat. She didn’t want to die. Shaking her head slightly, she forced herself to see through the shadows, past the black ski mask, to pick up on the slight inflections in her attacker’s voice. In vain. Her heart pounded too loud behind her ears, her breath strangled as it sawed in and out of her chest. She couldn’t breathe. Couldn’t think. There was only pain, the slight pinch at the base of her neck where the blade cut into her, the pressure building in her lungs. A tear streamed from the corner of her right eye into her hairline.
