Hanna thinks the night can’t get any worse than being stood up by Drake, her fake date for her cousin’s wedding. At least he texts at the final hour with a good enough excuse. Medical emergencies are her thing—until she gets to his place to find him delivering another woman’s baby in his bed. Her first reaction is to call 9-1-1 and to tell him to never contact her again. Her second reaction comes naturally when bullets start flying, and they need to set their differences aside to survive the night.
Drake isn’t good fake-date material because he’s into Hanna. The timing can’t be worse when his estranged sister goes into labor. His attempt to text his way out of standing Hanna up results in getting her involved. He’s an operative for the network her family has run for generations, but he’s not sure his sister has been completely honest. He regrets putting Hanna at risk, but that isn’t why she won’t forgive him. She’s benched for breaking protocol, but he’s back in the field. Since he got her into this mess, the least he can do is help her navigate it, except she’s as stubborn as she is sexy. When the enemy yanks her back into the field, her father is willing to break protocol, which might put her in greater danger. Drake needs to convince him of what Hanna never could: she can rescue herself.

ABOUT MARTI SHANE
Small towns breed big dreams. I left my hometown of Live Oak, Florida and joined the U.S. Air Force dreaming big. I wanted to fly, didn't we all? Well, here's the thing. (There's always a thing.) After working my butt off to earn my degree with three kids and alternating deployments with my husband, the time had come. Ever heard of the test of basic aviation skills? Yeah, flying's not my thing. Evidently, I have zero sense of direction and would fly the plane directly into the ground.
After 8 years, I decided to keep my feet on the ground and take on corporate America. With my husband still in the military, I kept up the one passion I discovered during our deployments. Writing steamy romance stories. The power of the pen keeps our romance alive when we're apart six months at a time.
I had thirteen years of success in climbing the corporate ladder, earning my Doctorate along the way. I had little passion for the work, but a girl's got to eat. Turns out, keeping my feet on the ground is overrated. JUMP! Write! There's no such thing as failure as long as you try. I love every second! Thanks for joining the journey.
