From best-selling and multi-award-winning romantic suspense author Amanda McKinney comes the second book in the steamy, edge-of-your-seat, three-part series Steele Shadows Security.
Hidden deep in the remote mountains of Berry Springs is a private security firm where some go to escape, and others find exactly what they’ve been looking for. Welcome to cabin one, cabin two, cabin three.
Always be prepared - that was Axel Steele’s motto. While his brothers were throwing down at the local bar, Ax was the guy in the background devising the getaway plan. Dubbed “the smart one”, the former special-ops Marine believed in structure and routine, a way of life the universe seemed hellbent on challenging.
Amidst a firestorm of family drama, Ax finds a woman held captive in the middle of the woods and in desperate need of his help. With an armful of tattoos as colorful as her attitude, his new client is his antithesis - a free-spirited, spontaneous hippie who tests every bit of his patience...and his self-restraint.
Erika Zajac has been living life on her own terms since she was just 16. But her gypsy lifestyle came to a screeching halt when the horrific past she’d tried so hard to bury came back in the form of chains and cuffs.
Suddenly, Erika finds herself under the security - and scrutiny - of a temperamental bodyguard with the emotional capacity of a rock and a six-pack to match. But no amount of brains or brawn was going to distract her from her goal or the secrets she’d kill to keep.
Deceit, lies, wrath. Ax’s client had them all. The only question was, which of Erika’s deadly sins would she choose? Revenge...or him?
