Hot, hard-bodied Sixten Rapp is a former SEAL who’s raring to begin his brand-new civilian life. He and his Navy “brothers” start a security firm that offers the kind of services only a team of military-trained professionals can provide. But nothing prepared Six for his new client: an innocent woman on a mission to improve thousands of lives. . . unless someone takes hers first.


Dr. Louisa North knows time is against her as she tries to create a “miracle” medical treatment for a disease with no known cure, until she creates a sample so powerful that the wrong people want to use it as a chemical weapon. At first, Six is unwilling to accept Louisa as his client. But soon he realizes that the danger is real and that there’s much more to this plain-Jane scientist…including a burning passion between them that neither of them can resist. And now that an enemy is on Louisa’s trail, Six will do whatever it takes to protect her—or die trying.


Scarlett Cole simple cannot let me down. This book was the beginning of a new series from her and it is vastly different from her previous works but no less amazing. This story had everything you need in an alpha hero book. Hot ex-Navy Seal, check, smart and quirky heroine, check, tons of action and a plot that reads like a movie, check.

I could not put this story down, I could see it playing out in my head and I didn’t want to stop till I reached the end. That to me is a sign of an excellent book. Six and Louisa’s story was completely hot and suspenseful. Despite the fact that she was awkward in social situations I could feel their chemistry immediately.

I loved how completely patient and protective of Louisa. This was a great beginning to a series I am incredibly excited to read. Scarlett Cole is a go to author for me and this is yet another book where she has outdone herself.
