A 2017 RT Reviewer's Choice Nominee for Best Military/Law Enforcement Romantic Suspense!
In Tess Diamond's gripping debut, when an elite negotiator and a security expert team up to solve a kidnapping, the only thing higher than the tension is the heat . . .
Maggie Kincaid left the FBI two years ago and didn't look back . . . until now. A senator's daughter has been abducted, and the nightmare set in motion isn't just familiar to Maggie, it's personal. She'll need all the help she can get to bring Kayla Thebes home alive-even if that help comes from a hot-as-hell ex-soldier who plays by his own rules. . .
For Jake O'Connor, negotiation equals weakness. But he's immediately drawn to the sexy former agent who epitomizes strength. It isn't long before he and Maggie are working together 24/7, learning to read each other's signals and wanting much more.
But for Maggie and Jake, letting their guard down-even around each other-may be dangerous. Now, as they close in on a kidnapper with nothing to lose, their first mistake could shatter a young girl's last chance...
Tess Diamond is a romantic suspense addict with a taste for danger-and chocolate cake. She lives in Colorado Springs with her law enforcement husband, two kids, and a ferocious Jack Russell guard dog. She always dreamed of being an FBI agent, and now she almost is-if watching 24 reruns and plotting her next novel count.
