He’s no longer the carefree, wild child he’d once been. He’s seen and done things most people couldn’t imagine. Not in their dreams… and not in their worst nightmares.

Then he finds the letters. Letters that change everything he thought he knew about his family and provide a new mission—to discover the truth and right decades-old wrongs in the process.

So far, she’s managed to stay neutral in the escalating tensions between some locals and the Sanctuary guys. However, when the brooding, sexy stranger comes to town with a shocking secret about one of their own, remaining quietly on the sidelines proves impossible.

The naked man he found on top of his girlfriend . . .
One thing was certain. Things couldn't get much worse. Then he met her.
Super stuck up.
Super engaged to be married...
It was just an odd job to tide him over while he waited to see if he'd heal enough to get back on the team. Close personal protection for a singer so famous even he'd heard of her. He was supposed to be her bodyguard. And guard her body he did. Day . . . and night. His new boss probably didn't have protection that close or that personal in mind.
He wasn't supposed to fall for her. Then again, she wasn't supposed to be so smart, and funny, and wounded, and in need of saving.
Now he has a decision to make. Quit the military career he'd worked half his life for and take the job as her permanent head of security, just to be near her. Forget about her and take any job his command would give him in his current broken condition. Or do the craziest thing of all. Confess his feelings and hope to make it work. With her. As a normal couple. A real couple, if that was even possible given who she was. It's an impossible decision, but he'll be damned if he'll let her stalker or his bullet make it for him.
