Burned is the third book in the Black Cipher Files trilogy.
Zeke Hawthorne, NSA hacker, has been red-badged. Under investigation for divulging national secrets, he’s sent away on a boondoggle. All he has to do is keep an eye on some hippy-dippy granola girl, and stay out of trouble. Only trouble comes looking for them….
Thirteen years ago, Sunshine Smith’s entire world was blown apart when her obsessive stepfather killed her grandparents. She’s lived her life in hiding, changing her name and sacrificing her freedom to protect her mother. For years they’ve been safe…until now.
When Sunshine is threatened, Zeke can’t keep his distance, even if it means his job and his life, because danger and betrayal are coming for him too. Zeke and Sunshine must combine forces to stay one step ahead of the peril that stalks them, but trust between two people who grew up without faith is a difficult bond to form. Will fears from the past steal their future?
The Black Cipher Files is a fast-paced, edgy romance and espionage series that features hot, alpha heroes and kick-ass heroines, working to uncover long-buried secrets from the past so they can save their future.

I'm a huge fan of Sandra Brown, and Lisa Hughey is giving her a great run for her money....
...this book kept me guessing to the end. Loved the characters and the story line.

...If you like Elizabeth Lowell, you'll like Hughey. Both the plot and the romance get equal attention, and Lucas is exactly the man for Jamie, even if she's really committed to shutting him out. She has good reasons, which keeps the tension high. Blowback is a super satisfying read.
