As a former field surgeon in Afghanistan, Heather Fontaine is used to life-or-death situations. She just didn't expect them to follow her home. When she returns from a party to find that someone has broken into her house--and threatened her friends--she assumes it is the stalker who has been following her and creeping her out. She hopes to find safety and peace of mind by leaving the city and hiding out in a small town. But trouble has followed her even there.
Luckily, a stalker isn't the only one watching Heather. Travis Walker has been secretly watching out for her for weeks. As owner of his own security agency, it's what he does. Together, Travis and Heather must figure out who wants her dead--and why--before it's too late.
Bestselling and award-winning author Lynette Eason will have you looking over your shoulder as you dive into this fast-paced, suspense-filled story about losing control and finding something even better.

This book was a amazing!
I really liked it, especially when Heather was staying in the mountain town, I guess you could call it, and how you had to go over a mountain to reach the town or home, because my family actually went to somewhere like that last summer. It’s very cool when you can relate books!
Thx so Lynette! I can’t wait till hostile intent!!!!!
Great twist on defense
In Active Defense Lynette Eason has given another taste of her writing skill with a different twist on the typical romantic suspense. There was still plenty of action, a hero, and a great romance. The story grabbed my attention from the very beginning moving from a military hospital in Afghanistan to the United States.
I love how the relationships are written with consideration for reality—no plastic people or stereotypes.
Travis wasn’t an army ranger or boldly pursuing Heather, but was willing to let their friendship grow into more. His patience with her insecurities made him my kind of hero.
Heather was a contradiction, tough in some ways yet the reader is given glimpses of the heart underneath.
This is a well crafted story with believable side characters that add depth to the story. I loved it.
I received an ARC courtesy of Baker Publishing Group and Revell through NetGalley and this is my honest review of the book.
