Publisher's Summary

ATF Special Agent Tobias Burke is undercover in West Virginia, infiltrating a militia led by Captain Dylan Connelly, suspected of murdering the Secretary of Defense. Dylan, once the Army's battalion leader of Mortuary Affairs, now works as a physician at the local Veterans Hospital, while leading her late-father's Seventh Amendment Militia. When Tobias Burke shows up to enlist, with his ladies-man humor and lovable Labrador retriever, Dylan knows his killer charm hides an ulterior motive. As evidence against Dylan mounts, Tobias's instincts-and then his heart-betray him into wondering if Dylan is being framed. Now, with Dylan's militia locked in a stand-off with the FBI and the nation watching the drama unfold on television, Tobias stares down the barrel of the most difficult choice in his life: expose the real killer and clear Dylan's name, or follow orders.

Slow burn and lots of heat!!!

Like always I hate to give away too much about the plot of a book in my reviews but there is something to be said about a book with a nice and easy burn. It was delicious listening to the burn and heat between Captain Dylan Connelly and Special Agent Tobias Burke.

Marliss Melton brought to life a woman damaged by war and trying to find her way back, doing it the best way that she could. Her hero was tough. He was tender. He was perfection.

I have always thought that the sign of a great writer and an okay writer was how the secondary characters are written. Like any great writer Ms. Melton's secondary characters sucked me into their lives and made me care about them.

David Brenin's narration was spot on! Through his voice and the way he gave a voices to all of these amazing characters that not only pulled on my heart strings but actually made me set down my knitting needles and reach for a tissue.

If you are looking for a really good book with lots of actual story then I strongly suggest this one!

Very Believable Story and Characters

Honestly I bought this book only because I like redheads. The story and character development was a delightful surprise. From "real people" in the community making up the soliders in the militia to the bond that develops almost immediately between Tobias and Dylan. Their struggles, hers with PTSD and his with the Dylan he comes to know vs. who her file says she is, are totally on the mark and lead to a breathtaking ending. I definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes romance, intrigue, and muscles.
