The heat of anger and love collide as the protagonists in Leigh's newest Elite Ops thriller fight both each other and the past. Leigh never skimps on the sensuality, but the dark passion and chilling obsession demonstrated by this hero make the heroine's fairly quick acceptance of circumstances a tad unrealistic. Ferocious passion indeed!
Sabella still mourns her lost husband, but for the first time she finds both her temper and her hormones elevated by a new man. Noah's arrogance is maddening, but she can't deny the attraction ... what is it about him that entices her? With danger drawing closer, she will have to place her trust in the mysterious stranger.
