These U.S. Marines are always the first to fight when it comes to their country…or the women they love.
She’s trying to take back her life…
Peyton Rhodes has lost everything. Three years ago, her family was violently murdered while she narrowly escaped. Now, she’s conquered her fears and is determined to wipe the slate clean. Her new beginning may be over before it starts when she is the only witness to a gruesome murder.
He may as well be dead…
Former U.S. Marine Ford Collier is back in the states after a perilous deployment without his team, his career, or the respect of his country. Secluded in the mountains of North Carolina, Ford doesn’t want anything to do with the murder in his backyard–or the pretty blonde artist who gets under his skin. Even if he hadn’t been at the scene of the murder, Peyton would still be terrified of a man like him–a man with violence in his blood.
The only way they’ll survive is together.
As dangerous complications arise–and passion heats up–it will take learning to trust again for Ford and Peyton to make it out alive.
