Growing up, Lance Kemp always felt lost, having no purpose in life, until he joined the marines and served his country. Now working as a bounty hunter for the Tactical Enforcers Agency, he has never allowed anyone to get under his skin, until he has a run-in one night with his friend's sister, Rachel. As a natural instinct, he can't allow her to return to her abusive husband and only wants to protect her. The only problem is that her husband won't allow her to get away from him without a fight. No woman has ever messed with Lance's head as much as Rachel has. Too bad he likes a challenge and he isn't about to let her get away so easily.
After years of taking her husband's mental and physical abuse, Rachel Klark decided the time has come to leave him and pay her brother a long overdue visit. The only place she ever felt safe was with her brother, and with his experience she is confident he will know exactly how to help her get out of her bad marriage. What she never expected was to fall for her brother's roommate. Lance is dark and mysterious, a man who risks his life for a living. But can she chance her heart and jump into the bed of another dominant man so easily?
Mac Walker had been a soldier who’d sacrificed everything during his time in the military. And then he’d been forced to retire after a traumatic leg injury that ended his career. He and a group of good men started a bounty-hunting agency, successfully tracking down fugitives from the law who tried to avoid them at any cost. Now at forty, he was older and wiser. No matter how much he tried to move forward in life there was one thing he could never get out of his mind. After losing hope of ever finding the one woman who had ruined him for all other women he tried to get close to, Avery had re-appeared once more in his life, and this time he wasn’t about to let her get away so easily.
Avery Duncan never thought she’d see Mac again after the week they had spent together while he was on leave years ago. No matter how much she tried, she couldn’t deny that what they’d shared meant more to her than she ever imagined. Before, she’d had her reasons for running away in the middle of the night. In the moments they’d shared, she wasn’t completely honest with him and it was time she came clean, especially about her son, Mason. Mac was the one man she had always regretted walking away from, but would he still want her even after she told him the secrets of her past?
