He's hot. He's tough. He's dangerous... Bestselling suspense writer Taylor O'Toole has a huge problem—almost overnight, her quiet, humdrum life is starting to resemble one of her novels. Who knew that a little unofficial surveillance for a friend would backfire—throwing her into the crosshairs of a stalker? And why does her sexy new neighbor always seem to turn up when things start heading south? He's a Navy SEAL with a top secret mission: her! When Navy SEAL Jack Broussard is called back from a dangerous mission, the last thing he expects is a top secret assignment protecting a beautiful mystery writer. Jack can drop a kidnapper with his bare hands, run airtight surveillance, and cook a mean lasagna, but tangling with his unpredictable neighbor is enough to drive any man crazy. Like it or not, his new orders are to keep Taylor O'Toole in his sights—after all, she could be a key link in the government search for a missing Navy scientist. But when an attempt on Taylor's life ratchets up the stakes, Jack knows he'd better watch his heart. Because suddenly the chase is on . . . and seduction has never been so close. Or so dangerous.
