Kell Roberts has walked the thin line between life and death for so long that it now feels like home. He is a soldier, a survivor, and a loner. Still, Kell cannot turn his back on the beautiful woman caught in his firefight against the drug lords of Mexico. She says her name is Teddie, but Kell senses there s much more to her story and it s about to pull him into a mission he didn t sign on for: keeping her alive.
Teddie knows this lean, mean rescuer just saved her life, but the steel glint behind those soft gray eyes seem to be hiding something deep. The men after Teddie are deadly, but the man who holds her life in his hands and tempts her with his wicked touch is even more dangerous. He could make her dream about living and loving again. And if they can survive, maybe, just maybe, they can stop fighting the world and each other and simply surrender."

Shadow Force operative Kell Roberts is about to take out two Mexican drug lords when a tall blonde woman fleeing unknown pursuers runs right between Kell and his targets. From then on, Tyler's fourth Shadow Force installment (after In the Air Tonight) becomes a perfect balance of kiss-kiss, fight-fight. Once Kell and his foster brother, Reid, finally do dispatch the kingpins, their focus turns to the woman, Teddie Lassiter. Kell can't resist her charms and the black ops specialists promise to get her to safety, but keeping that promise is unexpectedly difficult. Teddie shot a man back in Juarez who's looking for a little payback, and U.S. marshals are on her tail as well. A guy with a vendetta against the entire Shadow Force team is the final ingredient for this very satisfying romantic thriller. (Oct.)
