Tech genius Noah Kim works day and night to keep the survivors at Blue Mountain Base with lights, power and hot water. He's also working on a top secret project to help keep them safe. He's tired, stressed and under pressure--and one woman adds to it all. An annoying, infuriating redhead he calls Captain Dragon.
Captain Laura Bladon lost everything she cared for in the alien invasion: her loving family, her Navy SEAL fiancé and her military career. Since then, she's been numb, her feelings encased in ice, and she's dedicated herself to her job as chief interrogator and running the base's prison. But one person can get under her skin in an instant--arrogant, brilliant Noah. He's the one thing that makes her feel--and that makes her very afraid.
But as Laura helps Noah on his project, the two are drawn irresistibly together. As they head into the desert with Hell Squad on a mission to a hidden alien outpost, sparks fly and a passionate desire is uncovered. Both are holding onto past hurts, scared to take the risk of loving again...but when the unthinkable happens, it changes everything...and Laura and Noah must find the power to save themselves, their friends and their love.
