“Will he allow her to slip through his fingers a second time?”
Navy SEAL Ian Chase returns home, disillusioned after a brutal tour to Afghanistan, where political and financial considerations conspired to take control of the United States War on Terror. At the helm of his billion-dollar venture capital and private security company, The Chase Group, Ian can work free of either.
A brief encounter with the unavailable Art Historian Cassiopeia Ellis, six years ago, left him smitten. Now, after unexpectedly meeting her again, he finds that she still makes him want her more than life itself.
But things have changed for Cassie. No longer engaged, she is an FBI Agent, devoid of the carefree attitudes that drew Ian to her. Now, she is secretive, afraid and plagued by nightmares that refuse to abate.
Meeting Ian again only serves to confuse Cassie further. One look in his eyes leaves her feeling he can see into the depths of her soul. Emotionally and physically scarred, Cassie shields herself from any emotional connection that may hurt her. Can she trust again? How will a man like him ever want a woman like her?
When tragedy strikes, Ian uses everything in his power to uncover the secrets she has buried to heal her and in the process, save America.
