And not to leave you with just that, here is an exclusive snippet for you all to get a taste of the sexy Navy SEAL, Daren Scott:
Daren's target stopped at the busy intersection and waited for the cars rushing along the
street, giving him time to drink in the sight of her. He’d remembered
her face, or so he’d
thought until now. Now he realized he’d not gotten the beauty of her lips
right, or the angle of her cheekbones when she tilted her head while she
waited, or the way her eyes seemed to see everything. Her ears were small, so
damn cute he noticed when she turned slightly to the left, an urge to stand
behind her and bend so he could run his lips along the curve of her neck filled
“Fuck!” he shouted,
and was nearly out of the vehicle before he’d even registered the bearded Arab
holding a gun to the base of her skull. In the distance, he heard Tazz on his
left, but all he could focus on was the complete lack of fear on Kylie’s face. She
looked like she almost welcomed the death waiting for her. He saw her eyes
widen a second when he yelled her name, then she ducked, jabbed the guy with an
elbow, twisted around and Dare stumbled into him. He dropped the guy to the
sidewalk without meaning to, simply because she’d thrown him right at his feet.
“Shit, don’t move, don’t move!” he shouted,
but she backed away with too-wide eyes, then pushed a woman at him and raced
down the crowded street just as fast as she had at the airport. This time
though, he wasn’t
suffering from whothehellitis. He
knew this woman. No way was he losing her—again. He kicked into action, years of
running for his life and after men much bigger and faster than Kylie Chung,
punching him into a fast dash.
After six years, baby, if you think you can dodge me again,
going to be wrong.
heard Tazz shout his name and turned to yell, “Get the guy, I’m on her.”
turned back in time to see her make the corner and was out of sight. He spotted
her a second after he pushed his way through the crowded street market. She was
fast, and more, she seemed to know how to weave in and out of the people spread
out in the streets without getting caught up by them or the fruit and vegetable
dealers laying their produce out everywhere.
block later he spotted her taking a left. He dodged down a side street filled
with hanging laundry, but fewer people and raced to the end, took a right and
barreled right into her. He grabbed her upper arms to keep her with him. Their
eyes met. Hers were light, a hazel color with striations of darker brown that
captivated him. Her cap had flown off and all her black hair had tumbled down
around her shoulders.
tried to think of what to say, but the only thing that came out was: “You left me.”
blinked and tried to jerk out of his grip. He tightened his handsnd made sure
she stayed put. She let out an angry spate of Korean, or maybe Chinese, but he
refused to let her go. Finally she blew her hair off her face with an angry
puff and stopped trying to break his hold. He guessed she could have dislodged
him with one of her quick moves if she wanted to badly enough, but for some reason
“Look, I’m going to
chase you if you do get away, so why not settle down, talk to me, and we can
stop the running for a while, okay?”
honesty seemed to make her frown.
“Why are you chasing me?”
when he would have smiled at her exasperated demand, gunshots split the air.
Pieces of the concrete wall behind her blew outward, spraying them both with
debris. He tackled her down into a hunch under his arm and forced her behind
the cars lining the street. Two more shots split the air. From the angle the
bullets hit, Dare realized they weren’t necessarily aiming for them.
shoved her up against a red BMW and chanced a look. Two men were stationed
behind an overturned cart aiming for another vehicle where Tazz crouched half
hidden behind the hood of the car. Tazz caught his eye and gave him the ‘ok’ signal then
shoved his hand down and out, indicating he should move out.
shots were fired at Tazz. He hunched down, then returned fire, hitting one man
and possibly the other.
shouted and screamed, and Kylie tried to pull from Dare’s grip again.
He hauled her close to his body and plowed his way through the throng like he
was back on the football field, and ducked them both down behind a mid-sized
“You want to
tell me who is shooting at you?”
and a pissed off glare met his demand, then she dropped down that silent-I-don’t-care-what-happens
seen earlier, shutting him out, and he wasn’t allowing that.
“You don’t care if you
live or die? Is that it?”
he demanded. “I
not letting you get your head blown off because you’ve made some
mistakes. Now, who is trying to kill you?” he demanded again, shaking her
shoulders for emphasis.
several seconds of sizing him up——she shrugged and looked away,
dismissing him for the second time in one day. Shit didn’t happen to
him. People, especially smaller, fragile looking women, answered his questions
without him even having to touch them.
when he reached his limit, she sighed heavily and murmured. “He wasn’t trying to
kill me. He wanted something from me. And it looks to me like they are shooting
at you guys.”
Chung was a beautiful woman, more captivating up close than she was from yards
away. He still wasn’t
letting her pass on that one. She’d had a gun to her head, for God’s sake.
“Maybe, but I
the one with a gun pointed at my skull, executioner style. Now, here’s what we’re going to do,” he said and
pulled her attention back to his face with his forefinger under her chin. For
some damn reason, it mattered to him that she saw him, remembered him. In the desert, he’d been busted up, his face swollen and
cut up with shrapnel but he’d
counted on her recognizing him. “We’re going to
circle around, and get in that vehicle --”
“No.” She shrugged
his hand off, pushed at him and tried to stand. He tugged her right back down
to face him. He was bigger and he used it, ninja moves or not, she wasn’t getting away
“What else are
you going to do? Run?”
He tightened his hands carefully on her tiny arms, and shook her gently. “That didn’t work so well,
did it? You can’t
run through the streets of Seoul and dodge these guys.”
huffed at him like he was being the stubborn one. “I can. I was
before you came along. You stand out, you draw attention. I blend in. I can’t go with you.”
was angry pissed even, but at him? Or at something else?
“I stand out
He shrugged and grinned but she looked even more pissed, if possible. “Do I have to

remind me of anything,”
scanned the area, the tall buildings looming up around them, then the rushing
pedestrians, then him again. He’d
bet his last dollar she had this area mapped out already and had just
pinpointed ten different ways to lose him.
“All right, I
can see you’re
serious about this. What else do you suggest we do?” he asked.
tightened her hands into fists until the knuckles turned white, clearly not
willing to say. Instead she simply tried to ignore him. He could have told her
work. He was used to attention, and if he had to, he knew how to get it. He’d bet his last
dollar she wasn’t
a spy. And if she was?
He’d handle that
when and if it was true. He’d
already come too far to stop now.
“You’re stuck with
me so I suggest you go with it. It’s that, or I
cuff you, tuck your pretty little butt over my shoulder, then we go to the
location my man has secured for us.”

he can't forget, can he trust that with her touch, he can finally
hold on to love?
Daren Scott lived in was full of danger and, all too often, death. There was no
place init for
love, and surely not one single woman. Women were weak, delicate, too easily
taken out by a stray bullet to trust them for the long haul—until one woman.
Kylie might prove that all he really needed was her touch.

excited her. He drove her nuts. But most of all, he confused her.

his bed? Could he truly be the warm, tender man who stole her breath
with a look and made her dreams possible?
