Ernesto Salgado’s life continues to change. An ex-Special Forces operative, he recently left the U.S. Marshals Service to start a new life—minus the woman who left him without an explanation or backward glance. Working as head of security for MacLaren Enterprises is the opportunity he needs to move on.
Paige Wallace made a choice that continues to haunt her every day and each night. The life she dreamed about, had at her fingertips, disappeared in one decisive moment. A new job with her longtime friend offers the break she needs, a chance to forget her biggest failure and start over.
No problem, right? Except Paige and Nesto now work for the same company.
And that’s not the only issue. The family member she dropped everything to help has become embroiled in illegal dealings, doing business with those who would harm not only Paige, but the entire MacLaren family.
As head of security, Nesto’s priority is to keep all employees and owners safe. He’ll do whatever needs to be done to excel at the job, even when it includes protecting the woman who walked out of his life.
The more he digs, the deeper the threat becomes, affecting everyone. Nesto has to face a hard truth—the only way for him to succeed is with Paige’s help.
How can he trust a woman he thought loved him but walked away, especially when they acknowledge the passion still burning between them?
As the threat increases, Nesto uses all the resources available to protect those he cares about. If he could only use the same resources to protect his heart.
