I'm Brent Hearst, for God's sake. A member of the one percent. As in old family money. Yet somehow I'm standing here, smiling while there’s a gun strapped to my leg ruining the line of my Italian suit.
But my real issue isn’t with that gun. Oh, no. It’s my other weapon I can’t control when I’m around the sexy-as-sin brunette who might or might not be a spy. It seems I don’t seem to care which while I’ve got her against the wall with my hand fisted in her hair.
Oh, and while I figure out if I’ve been sleeping with the enemy, I’ve also got to keep us both from being killed by a couple of gun-toting Russians.

Me, Chelsea Bridges, working for a private military contractor. Although I figure SEALs and spies have to be preferable to the lowlifes I encountered at my former job at the “gentlemen’s” club.
If I had any doubts about my new employment, Mr. MI6 with the British accent to swoon over and the GQ suit was enough to sway my decision.
Now my only concern is when I'll see him again, because one night with Tristan Fairchild was definitely not enough.

Navy SEAL Clay "Dirtman" Hagan's retirement plans are simple. Buy the dilapidated beachfront cottage he found listed for a song, fix it up, and live out his days in solitude. Everything is set until an anonymous bidder drives up the price of his future paradise.
TV talk show host Tasha Jones is flying high, until one word--CANCELED--sends her crashing. Now she's looking to resurrect her career with a new home renovation show, if they can get around the obnoxious buyer standing between her and the perfect property.
When her competition turns out to be none other than the a-hole from her embarrassing drunken one-night stand, the battle for the property really heats up as the insults--and the sparks--fly. The producer notices the chemistry between them and decides the viewers will too and the concept for "Hot House" is born.
If Clay agrees to have the self-centered star and her cameras in his house for the duration of the show, he gets to walk away with the property in the end. If Tasha can put up with living in the house with the Neanderthal control-freak during the construction, she gets a hit show and her career back.
It shouldn't be hard since the director loves when they argue on camera, which is good since they agree on nothing. Well, almost nothing. They do agree they hate each other and neither wants a repeat of their one night together . . . So why does it keep happening?

It was more than just a one-night stand. Chelsea had been there for me when I needed her. Now, she's missing.
The woman who stumbles head-on toward trouble with a reckless enthusiasm, regardless of the danger. The woman I can't get out of my head six-months after our one and only night together. The woman I keep far away from because I know to my core that seeing her again is going to turn my life upside down.
But now she's in trouble and there's no bloody way I'm trusting the Yanks to get her out of it. Luckily, I'm just the right man for the job and I've got a plan.
Fly from New York to D.C.. Find her and spank her pretty bottom for worrying me. Then, leave immediately for the head office in London for reassignment. Simple. So why does that last part feel like a punch to my gut? I'll have to worry about that later.
