Leah Tomson has been on the run since she was a kid. Every day is a struggle to stay alive. Now turning thirty, she wonders why she’s still here. When her path crosses with a boy who’s sucked into her world, she’s got someone else depending on her for the first time. She won’t let him down. When she finds them trapped by a mercenary and his crew, death is imminent. She knows she’ll fail a child, again.
Commander Hannes ‘Otso’ Otila just finished a mission and is on his way home when his trip is disrupted by an unexpected cargo of the curvy, mouthy, and sassy type. With this luscious woman comes a boy and a lot of problems that drive him bat shit crazy. But instead of letting them go, his biggest desire, and that of his polar bear, is to keep her forever. He’ll happily hold her his captive and if the moment comes, give his life for her.
A big-time drug lord wants Leah dead, and it’s up to Hannes and Leah to keep her and the boy alive. That’s turning out to be harder than either anticipated when his second-in-command turns on him. While Hannes protects Leah from danger, protecting his own heart from her is a lot more difficult. The burning need to have her pushes his control, but is she worth the chance of another broken heart? Hannes is about to realize that no matter what he decides, his bear made a choice: Leah is his and no amount of internal struggle will change the animal’s mind.
