Temptation doesn’t play by the rules…

Navy SEAL Kyle Matthews will do whatever it takes to avenge his brother’s death. And he’s not alone. He and his beautiful sister-in-law, Natalie, are after the same thing… with one important caveat. He wants the terrorist behind Nick’s murder dead. She wants him in custody. They’re headed for a clash.

Kyle respects his brother’s memory, so it’s hands off when it comes to Nick’s widow—no matter how tempting he finds her. But she has a different plan…

As an intelligence expert, Natalie knows how to keep a cool head in stressful situations. But nothing prepared her for the sizzling attraction she feels toward Kyle. He’s a driven, powerful man, built for action. And Natalie has some very steamy action on her mind. When push comes to shove, though, duty has to come before anything else. Their very lives depend on it.

Her heart will just have to wait…

Danger and desire are an intoxicating mix…

Navy SEAL Gage Jackelson will do anything to solve the murder of his friend… even get half-naked for a romance-novel cover shoot. It doesn’t hurt that the photographer is equally gorgeous and intriguing. But Anna Middleton is a distraction he can’t afford. Could she know more than she’s letting on? He’ll have to get close to her to find out. Really close.

Ever since Gage showed up, Anna’s quiet life has been turned upside down. First, her billionaire boss disappeared after an explosion rocked their office building. Then some decidedly sinister characters started following her. And the smoking-hot SEAL is driving her wild—not that she’s complaining.

She meant to keep their relationship strictly professional. But as they become further entangled in a web of danger, Anna can’t help falling hard. They’ll need to work together to make it through…but will Gage stick around once he’s ensured Anna’s safety?
