Love is the most dangerous obsession…

Skye Sullivan is trying to put the pieces of her life back together. She survived a brutal stalker and escaped his abduction, and now she is looking to the future—a future that includes Skye’s lover, billionaire Trace Weston. Skye thinks the danger is finally over for her.

She’s dead wrong.

When Trace’s past comes back to haunt him, Skye discovers that the man she loves isn’t quite who he seems to be. Trace has been leading a double-life. An ex-special forces agent, his military training turned him into the perfect killing machine. He made more than his share of enemies during his time in the military—and as he built his security empire—and one of those enemies is striking back.

He won’t lose her.

Skye is the one weapon that can be used against Trace—his only vulnerability. But he won’t let her go—he can’t. Trace will do anything necessary to protect Skye. Anything. Yet when she discovers the secrets that he’s tried to keep hidden, Skye’s pain and rage may send her running directly into the cross-hairs of a killer…

After battling a stalker that almost took your life, wouldn’t you have nightmares? I would. Our book #2 begins while Skye and Trace are vacationing for a few days in order to regroup their emotions and heal after their near death experience.

Trace is the absolute alpha male. It is the only way he knows to deal with his fear of losing control of his life. He cannot lose Skye. His attitude is so smothering; it is a miracle Skye has not sent him on his way alone.

In this second book in the series, Trace’s past comes to haunt him and Skye. His military career in Black Ops dealing with missions that could not even be whispered about is full of enemies and death. He has been reluctant to tell Skye because of his fear that she would be abhor what he has had to do to survive and leave him. The secrets he continues to harbor add to the tension between the two lovers as they try to connect and decide where to next.

Murder surrounds them, as members of Trace’s old Black Ops Group begin to die at the hand of a slick murderer. Attempts against Trace and Skye’s lives are foiled, leaving the couple in a constant state of fear as they struggle to deal with the necessities of everyday life.

When the final encounter finally comes, you will be on the edge of your seat shouting at this book trying to save the lives of the characters that by now have become endearing and as close friends.
