For Holden, working with his former D-Force brothers takes the sting out of leaving active duty behind. He can't unsee the horrors he's seen and readjusting to civilian life is tougher than he expected. Helping at the local animal shelter is a blessing. It has nothing to do with his encounters with the sexy, sassy volunteer with a smart mouth and beautiful blue eyes.
Several years as an animal control officer has taken its toll on Emily Blake. She can't unsee the horrors she's seen, but she can continue to aid animals in need, and enjoys volunteering at a shelter in the town where she grew up. Unable to resist helping rescues, she's inexplicably drawn to the new volunteer. It has nothing to do with his smokin' hot body or mesmerizing hazel eyes.
No matter how hard Holden tries, he cant's seem to stay away from the woman, but when her life is threatened, he makes it his mission to keep her safe and remove the threat.
