After twenty-five years of active duty, US Navy SEAL Commander Eric Lopez chafed at his forced medical retirement. Bored, he jumped at the opportunity to work for a DHS Secret Division Command.
The new National Bio and Agro-Defense Facility had just opened and was already embroiled in controversy. One group protesting the facility wants it shut down due to safety concerns. A contingency of foreign scientists will be holding their annual meeting nearby and the cyber security chatter is that someone there will be threatening the facility.
With his background in biology, Eric is sent in to assess the situation as part of the foreign delegation, but when one of the lead scientists is kidnapped, he is tasked with finding them.
Dr. Lydia Hughes works in a low-security position at the Facility but, just her luck, she is at the wrong place at the wrong time and ends up in the hands of kidnappers who have mistaken her for a lead scientist.
Eric races to find Lydia before the kidnappers discover they have the wrong person and dispose of her. Saving her life is his mission. Falling for the beautiful doctor becomes the unexpected reward.
