He is a trained professionalโ€”but nothing can prepare him for the hottest mission of his life. Assigned to protect his bossโ€™s daughter, British former SAS operative Malone Garrett breaks the first rule of covert surveillanceโ€”donโ€™t make contact. And especially donโ€™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 canโ€™t risk anything more. But when an international crisis ignites, Abby must make a call: trust Mal with her secretโ€”and her heartโ€”and partner up, or lose everything in a split second . . .

He reached for her.
โ€œYou can stop right there.โ€ Her voice startled him. He dropped his arm to the covers.
โ€œI was just going to shake you awake. Youโ€™ve been snoring like a bear,โ€ he said, swinging his legs out of bed.
She ignored his insult, such as it was. โ€œYou were supposed to wake me when it stopped snowing,โ€ she said, also climbing out of bed and seemingly not caring a whit that she was totally naked.
He sat still, taking in the sight. Her nipples puckering in the frigid air, her tight muscles moving in glorious efficiency toward the bathroom. โ€œIt was your watch. Technically you should have woken me.โ€
โ€œDonโ€™t you forget it, love.โ€ He stood and got dressed, having dug out his Under Armour thermals from the kit bag heโ€™d brought.
She poked her head around the bathroom door. โ€œWhat? Donโ€™t forget what?โ€
โ€œThat Iโ€™m an ass. Youโ€™ve blackmailed me into helping you, and someone as well trained as you knows that isnโ€™t a recipe for success.โ€ He finished tying his laces.
She shrugged. โ€œI trust you.โ€
โ€œYou shouldnโ€™t. I have a healthy regard for self-preservation and even I donโ€™t know what Iโ€™ll do if you get in the way of that. So youโ€™re much better off not trusting me for anything. Just a friendly PSA.โ€ He knew he sounded like a dick, but he just couldnโ€™t help himself.
โ€œIโ€™m not worried. If you piss me off, or if youโ€™re in the way of my self-preservationโ€โ€”she punctuated with air quotesโ€”โ€œor my mission, I wonโ€™t hesitate to shoot you.โ€ She disappeared again.
โ€œThereโ€™s one problem with that, love. Iโ€™ve got your gun.โ€
She didnโ€™t reply, but he heard the unmistakable sound of a shotgun being charged. โ€œFair enough,โ€ he said, trying not to smile at her resourcefulness. โ€œWhat else have you got in there?โ€
โ€œHairspray,โ€ she said.
โ€œAwesome.โ€ She was such a smart-arse. His sister would love her. He made a mental note that no matter what, they would never, ever meet. Ever.
She came out of the bathroom as if sheโ€™d come through a Tomb Raider portal. She wore a white snowsuit that matched his, a white knife strapped to her thigh, a white holster holding a white handgun under her shoulder, and a white shotgun on a white strap over her back.
โ€œIโ€™m sorry. The CIA gave you all that gear but couldnโ€™t give you a sat phone that worked? What the fuck?โ€ Jesus. This was why he was in the private sector now. One too many times heโ€™d been put in a sketchy situation without the right equipment. That didnโ€™t happen anymore.
She shrugged. โ€œI guess they thought snow was more likely than the need to use an emergency phone?โ€ She frowned, though, as if she was only just now considering that herself.
