After the mission three years that nearly ended my life, all I want is peace and quiet in my sleepy little town. When I find the green-eyed beauty sleeping in her car on the side of the road, I have no choice but to offer her a safe haven. The darkness in her eyes tells me that Jules harbors a deep secret, and the bruises covering her body elicit a protectiveness I never knew existed.

Despite the inexplicable connection between us, I need to stay away—far, far away. Jules is too young, too innocent for a man like me. Everything about her is wrong… but so very right. When a threat from the past sets their sights on Jules, I’ll do everything in my power to protect the woman who’s come to mean everything to me.
