Tortured by the memory of her former lover Ty Keane's death in Afghanistan, Air Force pilot Miranda Morgan is recovering from injuries when Ty's father, Sam, begins seeking vengeance.

By funding a multimillion-dollar scientific venture exploring possible Viking runes near her home, Sam could cost Randi the property that's been in her family for generations. But the project's leader, Dr. Pete Engstrom, isn't a man who can be bought. Attraction becomes a bond that Randi relies on as Sam's assault on her life and her peace of mind escalates.

No one does military-themed intrigue quite like Lovelace, and the scientific and historical aspects make this story fascinating. The very appealing Dr. Engstrom doesn't hurt, either. (Nov., 384 pp., $6.99)
