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.

Lydia & Eric
Eric Lopez, a former Navy Seal Commander who was forced into early retirement due to medical reasons, is restless. When he’s offered a mission with DHS Secret Division to work as an undercover journalist, he jumps at the chance. He arrives in Kansas to find he’s been partnered with a newbie, an IT specialist. Their job is to determine whether or not North Korea is there to gather information on African Swine disease so they can engineer it in a way to terrorize humans via swine. What Eric didn’t expect, was to be smitten with Dr. Lydia Hughes-a vet at the National Bio & Argo defense facility...
Dr. Lydia Hughes, veterinarian, dreamed of becoming a large animal vet. When offered a job to work at the NBAD facility, she gladly accepted. The job paid well, offered good benefits, and allowed her to pay off her student loans. As a single, widowed mom, the job also allowed her daughter to finish high school with her friends before going off to college. After an amazing one night stand, Lydia is shocked to see her hook up is among the journalists that she’s supposed to take on a tour of the facility.
Lydia and Eric are explosive together! Even though Lydia knows Eric will only be in town until the end of the week, she agrees to keep seeing him. Although they try to keep their feelings in check, it’s impossible. When Lydia is kidnapped, Eric assembles a team of his former Seal teammates and newbie IT guy, to rescue Lydia. Will they be in time to save the love of his life? I 💕 this novel! It’s one of Maryann Jordan’s best, most suspenseful novels I’ve read. I also appreciate the epilogues as I always want to know MORE! I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.
