"Exactly the testosterone ride I needed today. A quick action-packed romance that starts with a fire and burns even hotter." - Kira Gold, author and RITA award finalist


In a town called Justice, there’s nothing to fear except a man willing to break all the rules for the woman he craves.


As a former Green Beret, I know how to follow orders and obey rules. I’ve learned to be patient, to look at a situation from every angle, and to live by a code of honor most men know nothing about. But when a motorcycle club puts a target on not just my hometown but the five-foot-nothing blonde who unknowingly holds my heart in her hands, obeying the law takes a back seat to keeping my woman safe. I’ve never had something so precious to protect, and I’ve never been willing to cross so many lines to get a job done.


My need to destroy those who threaten Shye could cost me my home, my freedom, and my life…but I’d sacrifice it all to save her.

About the author

Kristin Harte started off as a chemistry major in college but somehow ended up writing romances featuring ex-military heroes and the women who knock them to their knees…literally and figuratively. She likes drinking in the shade, snuggling under a warm blanket on a cold evening, and researching how to blow things up. Her children know nothing of what she writes, and her husband just hopes he’s not at their Chicago-ish home the day the government shows up to confront Kristin about her Google search history. 

When not writing good men doing bad things, Kristin can be found writing paranormal romance as Ellis Leigh or co-writing naughty novellas as London Hale.

The last person she wants to turn to is her mysterious new frenemy—sexy, arrogant Professor Peter Maxwell.

“Wow...this book was most definitely a keep-you-at-the-edge-of-your-seat kind of novel. I went to bed when I was around the 60-65% novel, then woke up wide awake at 2:00 AM thinking about the book. There was no way I was going to go back to sleep until I finished the book. Yes, it was one of those.” ~Smitten with Reading

Kimmer Reed never intends to see her so-called family again. But when her brother shows up on her doorstep with gunmen on his heels, she does what comes naturally--she survives. Turns out he's in trouble (again) of his own making (again), and his survival strategy is to turn the bad guys on to Kimmer (of course).

But Kimmer is no longer a scared teen.  She's a highly trained covert agent with things worth fighting for--a life she loves, a house that's truly a home, and a strong partner who loves her.  And, it turns out, her so-called family now includes two innocent little girls--both currently in the hands of the same bad guys who have just turned Kimmer's life upside down.

Family.  Can't live with 'em, happy to live without 'em.  But no one makes Kimmer's choices for her--or for her two terrified nieces.  Look out, bad guys!
