Why is Zoe hiding beneath her bed?
Zoe Kealoha is a military research scientist. Her work is aimed at saving lives. Then why are there intruders looking for her inside her very own home. Most friends yawn at Zoe's conversations about micro-robotics. It must have struck a nerve with someone, and they don't sound friendly at all. As she hears the heavy crunch of footfalls creep closer, she realizes her quiet, orderly world is about to be upended.
Unlike Zoe's orderly world of hypothesis and laboratory-controlled environments, Gage Harrison loves the rush of risk. A Marine Raider, Gage is a warrior in every sense of the word. His soft spot is Zoe.
When he hears desperate screams from inside her home, his instinct and training switch from lover to guardian. He'll stop at nothing to save her from whatever evil lurks behind her bedroom door.
While Gage may have thwarted an attempt on Zoe's life, he recognizes the skill of the men sent to abduct her. They, like he, were trained killers. And Gage knows they'll be back.
Who is after Zoe and what does she know that's worth abducting her? Gage and his team are willing to risk everything to protect Zoe. If her research is that vital to saving lives, she and Gage will stop at nothing to untangle the sticky web of intrigue traps politicians, lovers, schemers, spies, and those willing to put money over loyalty.
