There aren't many places to get a cool drink in the middle of the New Mexico desert, and divorced bar owner Blue Delgado likes it that way. Little to no competition means that she gets to call the shots: her cantina, her rules. But there's something about her new cook that sets her senses tingling-and it's not just the way Diego fills out his jeans. When an old friend warns her that her life is in danger, Blue realizes she doesn't know anything about her new employee-except that Diego excites her to the core. Could a man she is so attracted to be trying to kill her?
All Diego Santerra has are his instincts, honed to precision as a member of an elite tactical squad. He keeps no personal ties that could compromise his missions: no family, no friends. His work is his life, and his new case is no exception. But the moment Diego lays eyes on the woman he is assigned to protect, he realizes that everything is about to change. As trained killers set their sights on Blue, Diego knows it's going to take everything he has to keep her alive-and to make her love him.
