GENRE: Contemporary Romance
“No man left behind” is inscribed in the DNA of every SEAL and Lieutenant Diego Torres is no exception. But with a team member killed—and the body missing— Diego’s honor is sorely tested. Now his career and reputation are on the line, and a traitor is hiding among them. Diego wants answers...and only one woman has them.
Single mom Harper Maclean has two priorities—raising her son Nathan and starting a new life. Her mysterious new neighbor may be impossibly charming, but Diego asks too many questions about her past—and about the father of her child. Questions she fears will reveal her burning attraction for Diego, and ultimately put them all in danger’s path.
“I’ve got something a lot more interesting in mind other than work,” she murmured.
Something very interesting.
It involved her temporary neighbor, and that sexy body of his. She’d spent a lot of time over the last week thinking about Diego. Fantasizing about his body. Those fantasies had offered distraction from her middle-of-the-night worries about Nathan going to camp and thoughts of her past. Without even realizing it, Diego had helped her get over some of her lingering concerns that Brandon had messed her up.
Why not let him help her get over the rest of those concerns? Why not go all the way?
“Harper?” Andi prompted, drawing the name out in a warning tone.
“I thought I’d get to know Diego a little better and see if we have anything in common besides a fence line. You know, flirt a little.”
Her body warmed at the memory of the heat she’d felt each time she’d flirted with Diego. That day over cookies. Once or twice when he’d hung out with Nathan. The man had a way of making her feel special. He had a way of looking at her that brought to mind all sorts of options for cork popping, to use Andi’s phrase.
“You’re saying you plan to green light your sexy neighbor? A man that you admitted gave you the tingles?”
“Sure. Why not?”
As Andi processed that, probably deciding whether challenging the blatant lie would push Harper to actually go through with it or if it’d make her run, screaming in terror, Harper pulled into her housing complex. She waited for the gate to rise, waving to the watchman as she drove on.
Harper swallowed hard to get past the knot in her throat. He would make the perfect distraction, though, wouldn’t he? And the perfect way to prove to Andi—and more important, to herself—that she wasn’t letting her experience with Brandon rule her life. The idea was big enough, scary enough and potentially exciting enough to keep her mind too occupied to miss her son more than, oh, twenty or thirty times a day.
