He is a trained professional -- but nothing can prepare him for the hottest mission of his life. Assigned to protect his boss's daughter, British former SAS operative Malone Garrett breaks the first rule of covert surveillance -- don't make contact. And especially don't take your mark out to dinner, then agree to a rooftop quickie. But now that Mal has Abby in his arms, he has no intention of ever letting her go. Abby Baston told herself it was a hit and quit, a one-nighter with a hot, handsome stranger whose hands were trained to take action. Working undercover for the CIA, she can't risk anything more. But when an international crisis ignites, Abby must make a call: trust Mal with her secret -- and her heart -- and partner up, or lose everything in a split second.
