After twenty years in captivity, Keegan Meeks is living life her way: all fun and no fear. Every day - and every man - is a new experience, and only her rules apply. Rule number one: Protecting herself and her family.
D.I.R.E.’s behind-the-scenes scientist Clint Robinson is the go-to person for everything – except women. Always on the outside looking in, the awkward loner could only dream of finding the right woman and settling down. But, fantasy material or not, even the gorgeous, obstinate Keegan Meeks can’t erase the nightmares that have haunted him for decades.
When danger threatens her sister’s wedding, Keegan’s determined to make the joyous event happen. However, her rash actions only serve to earn her the one thing she doesn’t want: a keeper. Clint Robinson may turn her on with his quiet, reserved demeanor, but the subtly sensual scientist is everything she doesn’t want in her new life of freedom.
After they uncover a tangled web of lies that makes them question everyone and everything around them – including each other - Keegan and Clint seek refuge in the one thing they can’t deny – their passion. However, when danger strikes home, threatening the future of the agency and Keegan’s safety, Clint must do everything in his power to save them. But, in a game of final elimination, where the best isn’t enough and the ultimate stakes are vital, he’s no super agent.
