While on leave from his SEAL team, Damian Caine attends a swanky Fourth of July party thrown by a senator friend of his father. His rock star brother Jaxon will be performing, and Damian wants to see the show. But things heat up fast when he runs into a gorgeous brunette who turns out to be the grown up senator’s daughter he knew as a kid.
Elena Mitchell—senator’s daughter and undercover CIA agent—is stunned when her secret teenage crush shows up at her father’s fundraising party. She gets over the surprise fast, though, and takes advantage of the situation—and him—as a chance to scratch that long-standing itch.
When Elena is kidnapped from the party by a Colombian drug lord set on revenge against her father, Damian and his SEAL team are assigned rescue duty. He’s determined to save her, despite her exasperating need to save herself. But the mission goes bad and Damian and Elena are forced to hide in the jungles of Colombia to await rescue.
Just when they think they’ll get out alive, all hell breaks loose and both their lives hang in the balance. When Elena’s recaptured and tortured, she realizes for the first time ever she may not be able to save herself. She faces her mortality believing Damian is dead and wishes they could have made a future together.
But it takes more than a couple of bullets to kill a cocky SEAL like Damian, and he’s hell bent on saving the woman who stole his heart.
