Book 1 in the Dileas Security Agency Series
He’s a hostage to his past.
Betrayal and death haunt former British SAS soldier, Lachlan MacMahon. A job in the States gives the Scot a chance to start over, and his beautiful new colleague inspires him to want to be a different man. He’s drawn to her light, but she’s too young and inexperienced to handle the darkness in his soul.
She has something to prove.
She may be young, but Sophia Russo is more than just a pretty face. Childhood insecurities drive her ambition to prove her worth in her new job as director of legislative affairs for LAI. She can’t afford to jeopardize her reputation or her heart by falling for the dangerously sexy head of global security. The shadows in his eyes call to her, but he might be more than she can handle.
The past won’t stay dead.
Sophia finds evidence in a dead man’s office of criminal ties to an Afghan warlord—evidence that points to Lachlan. His search for the truth leads to an attempt on his life that forces him into hiding. Sophia is caught in a deadly game of cat and mouse between Lachlan and an unknown enemy from his past. An enemy that is closer than either of them realize. Lachlan is forced to do the one thing he swore he’d never do again:
Trust a woman with his life.
