Maddy Powers's life revolves around cocktail parties, political fundraisers, and charity events—but she can't forget the daring former SEAL who came crashing into her life a few months ago...or the scorching kiss they shared before he disappeared into the deep blue sea.
Bran Pallidino carries a dark secret—one that forced him to push Maddy away. Bran knows he won't be finding redemption, and he can live with that as long as it means she'll be safe. But when Maddy's taken hostage during a trip to the Caribbean, the men of Deep Six Salvage embark on a dangerous mission to save her. Passion boils in the sultry sea breeze...but what good is putting his heart on the line if they don't survive the dawn?

Former Navy SEAL Mason McCarthy is done being a fighting man. Now he and the Deep Six Salvage crew are working feverishly to find the wreck of the Santa Cristina and its legendary sunken treasure. Unfortunately for Mason's peace of mind, chatty, brilliant historian Alexandra Merriweather has joined the hunt and there's no avoiding her. Alex is exactly the kind of distraction Mason can't afford right now...or maybe ever.
When a murderous enemy from Mason's past threatens the Deep Six, he must rely on old instincts and the skills he honed from years of running black ops to make sure nothing touches Alexandra. But with their lives on the line and the adrenaline running high, it's inevitable that sparks will fly.
