Josh Steele's violent rage over the death of his best friend in Iraq because of bad intelligence lands him in Leavenworth Prison, but he is released because he is needed on a sniper counterterrorism mission for the Bureau of American Defense (BAD). He is supposed to infiltrate an organization that is being paid to assassinate a visiting head of state. He is paired with special agent Sydney Westbrook, a somewhat notorious "ball buster." She tries to manipulate him but soon feels a grudging respect for someone she feels is an honorable man, despite his offbeat humor. Because of difficult backgrounds, both he and Sydney have trouble with intimacy, but that does not stop their fierce attraction to each other. Kenyon, known primarily for her paranormal romances in the Dark Hunter series, turns in her first "bad-boy" romance adventure, a fast-paced, one-sitting read featuring vulnerable but formidable and sexy characters who will appeal to fans of Catherine Mann and the Silhouette Bombshell series.
