Jamie Sinclair is a securities and investigation specialist. When she receives a call from her ex-husband with a plea for help, she has a real dilemma on her hands. Her ex cheated on her and got his new girlfriend pregnant. But now it is Tim’s 3 year old daughter, Brooke who has been kidnapped and Tim needs Jamie’s special set of expertise. Jamie can’t resist helping a little girl in danger, so she puts her personal feelings aside and drives to Fort Leeds, New Jersey where Tim is the commanding general on the army base.
When Jamie gets to Fort Leeds, one of the first people she meets is Adam Barrett who is in charge of the military police and also the investigation into Brooke’s kidnapping. The sexual tension between Jamie and Adam is evident from the first time they meet and the author keeps us in suspense as to what the outcome of their relationship will be.
