"With a mix of unbridled passion and romance" (Heidi McLaughlin, New York Times bestselling author) this second chance romance will make you believe in love again.
Rayne Alexander. A face I never thought I'd see again, and one I never could forget. Nine years ago, she left town--and me--without a backward glance. But now she's back, with a haunted look in her eyes and a feisty attitude that didn't exist when we were teenagers. Seeing this grown-up--and sexy--Rayne is something I wasn't prepared for... and it's bringing up feelings I'd thought I'd buried years ago.
Although I want to demand answers from Rayne, working on black ops at Night Eagle Security has taught me that it's sometimes better to keep my mouth shut. So when I catch her hiding a photo of a little boy, I'm curious. When I see her jump as her phone rings, I'm concerned. But the second I notice a car following her home, I know she's hiding something. Something dangerous. And while I may not know why she left or why she's back, if there's someone out there Rayne is afraid of, I'll make damn sure that threat is eliminated.
The Rescue Ops series: Sworn to ProtectPromise to DefendMine to Save
Gardin's first Rescue Ops contemporary romantic thriller (after Man of Honor) is a sensual, action-filled page-turner that evokes waves of emotion. Nine years of separation have done nothing to sever the strong bond between Night Eagle Security expert Jeremy Teague and Rayne Matheson, who left Jeremy their senior year of high school without an explanation. When a stalker sends her on the run, Rayne returns home to Wilmington, N.C., with her son, Decker, and the emotional devastation brought on by her reunion with Jeremy is almost worse than what she's fleeing from. Gardin packs a lot of forgiveness into the romance, allowing the lovers to reconnect without unnecessary drama though overcoming the past is still not a quick or easy process. The sexual tension is thick enough to stop bullets, and there are plenty flying around with the elusive villain closing in on his target. When lies are revealed, making the lovers question everything they thought they knew, Jeremy and Rayne (and their loyal, capable friends) face danger head-on, refusing to back down and once again lose their chance for happiness. Their unbreakable bond is evident from their intimate exchanges. Gardin (the Battle Scars series) will add to her fan base with this winning, fast-paced novel. Correction: This review has been updated to reflect that this is the first title in a new series, not the fourth title in an existing series.

Great book! Can't wait for the next one.
Fun, intriguing read
This book is the first in the series that is a spin off of The Battle Scars series. I hav eloved each book I have read by Diana and they keep getting better. This book had a lot of tension and mystery which meant it was almost impossible to put down. The love between Jeremy & Rayne is intense, even after years of separation. Its a love most people dream of.
