Retired Navy SEAL Marco Benally knows the cost of right and wrong, and he’s willing to pay the price. After his family’s home is stolen out from under them by a company covering up their illegal activities, Marco takes matters into his own hands. No cost is too great to reclaim the generational homestead. Even if that means someone else has to take the fall. Or that’s what he tells himself until he meets her. The woman with the tight skirt, tall heels and darkness in her eyes. One night, one lie to get the evidence he needs and then it’s over. Or at least that’s what he tells himself.
Fiona Goero survives by following very careful rules. She’s lived more of her life in Witness Protection than out of it. As one of the Internet’s Most Wanted for helping the FBI put away a group of hackers, she is never safe. She’s the traitor. The hacker who turned against her own. For one night she wants to indulge her every desire. To be held. To feel again. What should have been a passionate encounter becomes a snarled mess of lies and spies. Someone close to her is not only using her, they’re trying to kill her. Her one-night-stand might be the only thing between her and being six foot under.
Marco is a man on a mission to set things right before Fiona discovers that not all of the danger can be laid at her enemies’ feet. The greatest danger Fiona faces just might be from Marco—the man she’s falling for.
Warning: Stubborn heroes fall the hardest.
