Pilar Luna knows better than to trust a man, especially one with a sexy smile and a self-deprecating sense of humor. The last time she did that, she almost ended up dead. She would have been if not for her brother. Not that he was perfect. Lying men were all Pilar knew.
Former SEAL, Jack Farrell has no interest in getting close to anyone. He has his team and doesn’t need anyone else. Definitely not a stunning, curvy woman with aa feisty side and strength for days.
Jack’s team has been working on taking down the dangerous men Pilar’s ex works for, but they aren’t willing to let it happen without a few casualties. They send her ex to deal with it, but taking her brother isn’t enough. He won’t return home unless Pilar is with him.
The search for Pilar’s brother forces Jack and Pilar closer together when Jack is tasked with keeping her safe. But finding her brother means putting Pilar in danger. It means showing their hand to the man who could take everything away from him.
And it means the one thing Pilar needs from Jack is something he can’t give her. The truth.

Excerpt from First
“Where did he go?” she demanded.
Jack shook his head. “I don’t know. I was more worried about you. Are you okay?”
She shook her head, slowly at first, then quicker. “My brother. They took him.”
Jack’s face hardened. “Who was that?”
She laughed softly. “The man who’s going to kill me.”
“I’m not going to let that happen,” he promised her. She had no clue who he was, but that didn’t matter to him. He was going to keep her safe. He wasn’t losing her. Too many people in his life had died.
Not that she was in his life, but she was standing in front of him. She was there. And he was going to keep her safe.
“Come with me,” he said, reaching for her hand and starting down the street in the direction she initially came from.
She tugged out of his hand, causing him to stop. “I’m not going anywhere with you. I don’t know who you are.”
Jack grinned. “I’m the man you’re saving all your kisses for, remember?”
A ghost of a smile crossed her lips, but it didn’t last long. Fury replaced the fear, with determination on its heels. “I have to find my brother.”
Jack nodded. “I’ll help you.”
Jack grinned. “Because it’s what I do.”
