 “Everyone I’ve ever loved has been taken from me and I can’t take the heartache anymore. It’s time to build that wall around my heart and let no one in, no exceptions.”
 
Ellie never did know her mother; before she turned twenty she lost her father in the line of duty; a freak accident stole her fiancé from her before they had a chance to start their life together. She wants answers, but now that she’s living in a new town and trying to start over, she’s finding that it’s not that easy. Maybe new surroundings are what she needs to make it easier to move on and forget all about her old life. It could have been…until he showed up.
 
“Having the sort of job that is as dangerous as what I do doesn’t allow for a personal life, no exceptions.”
 
Jack and his team of military misfits have seen their fair share of war zones and violent criminals. Skilled in precision rescue operations, they’ve traveled into some of the most terrifying countries and stood up to intimidating adversaries, but when a mentor of Jack’s calls them in for a favor that he is unable to turn down, he finds himself up against his most challenging fear of all…his heart. There is a fine line between getting close enough to do your job and getting so close that you get attached. That line used to be obvious, but now that he’s met her, things have blurred and priorities have shifted. Can he keep his feelings in check and still protect Ellie from an adversary more dangerous and twisted than she could ever imagine?


 
 
 
 
 
“And this…” I tossed the manila envelope back to the desk, “…is not a job. It’s a death sentence. My death sentence. I’m walking in blind. I mean, how do I know she’s not running from the law?”
 
Lou shook his head, his mouth contorting into a tight frown, and answered matter-of-factly, “She’s not. And why would that stop you?”
 
“How do I know for sure? How do you know for sure?” I challenged, making him smile.
 
Somehow, that irritated me even more. He was hiding something.
 
“Because I know,” he answered, lips pursed, eyes narrowing at me. He didn’t look away and neither did I. I wanted to know what he was thinking. What was he hiding? Unfortunately, he was going to make it difficult to find out.
 
I sighed, knowing that was the only answer I was going to get. “Is she hiding from her husband or boyfriend or something?”
 
“Most definitely not,” he answered with a heavy sigh, sadness flicking across his face.
 
This piqued my interest. And why was a small part of me so damn happy with that answer?
 
“Did she kill someone?” I figured I already knew the answer to this one, but I had to ask.
 
He chuckled. “Absolutely not.”
 
“What if she’s got the mob after her? Did she piss off a terrorist group?”
 
“So what if they are? So what if she did? You’ve been wrapped up in worse and handled it,” he answered quickly. “Stop with the stalling already, Jack. I need to know. Are. You. In.”
 
“Lou, I don’t help people against their will because if they won’t listen and do what I tell them to do, bad things happen. She doesn’t want me anywhere near her. She won’t even look at me, let alone talk to me. Ellie dodges me all day long. I tried to just talk to her like you asked me, but she avoids me like the plague and scurries off in the other direction. She looks at me like…like…”
“Like the frightened child she is,” Lou interrupted sighing.

My name is Savannah Miller.
 
My father is the mayor of New York. One day after my twenty-seventh birthday I was grabbed from behind. A cloth sack was quickly pulled over my head, and I was taken from everything I’d ever known.
 
I was beaten, starved, treated like an animal, and forced to live in a room with no windows. With no sense of time and no dignity left I finally gave up hope and made a promise to myself to end it all. 
 
Unfortunately, it was going to be a slow process.
 
Then one night an elite group of US Army soldiers came to my rescue. I was brought to a safe house and given two options:
 
One- Stay under their protection and follow their rules or…
 
Two- Leave and be guaranteed to be returned to the savages within a week.
 
I chose option one.
 
As I work with a therapist and begin processing my hellish ordeal things slowly begin to surface. With the help of new friends and a potential new love I fight to get my life back and make choices that will forever alter my future.
