"Non-stop action and wall-banging sex made it hard to put down." – Chris for Night Owl Reviews
He’s a man you can rely on.
She’s a woman in need of such a man … at least until she’s safely home in Chicago! Easy job, done in a day. What isn’t easy is walking away from the woman who stirs his deepest desire. When Callie’s crazed stalker tracks her down, she needs Risto’s protection once again. And this time, it will be a cold day in hell before Callie lets him go.
Calista Meyers is a world-famous, soon-to-be-ex-supermodel. After arriving for a fashion shoot in Cartagena, Colombia, she realizes her agent has misled her about the nature of her last modeling assignment. Paramilitary leader Jaime Cruz paid her slimy agent a lot of money to get Callie to his part of the world. Cruz has threatened to kidnap and kill her younger brothers if she attempts to leave the country.
What’s a Marine brat to do?
Callie calls on her childhood friend Keely Walsh-Maddox and Keely’s husband Ren, the owner of Security Specialists International, to help her. SSI sends operative Risto Smith to rescue Callie. The former Marine has had a thing for the model ever since he’d first seen her picture on a magazine cover. But he knows he isn’t nearly good enough for a lady like her. She’s an assignment and can be nothing else.
Callie knows Risto is just the man for her and decides to use the close quarters of their escape from Colombia to convince the stubborn male. When Risto leaves her in Panama and disappears, Callie is upset but not defeated. But after two months passes with no word from Risto and with her enemy Cruz in the US and back on her trail, Callie once again turns to Risto for protection.
This time, it would be a cold day in hell before Callie allows Risto to turn his back on their love.

"Readers will be swept away by the mad, bad hero Risto Smith. He is an intense character who puts as much attention into protecting Callie Meyers as he does making love to her." – Dawn Crowne, RT Book Reviews
