To find the people lost in the shadows, you need the men
who live in them. The former soldiers of 11th Hour are
unaffiliated, unacknowledged, and definitely illegal. They
protect the innocent, destroy the guiltyâ€”and capture hearts
along the way . . .
Rugged, skilled, and
hard-bodied, Jack Kingâ€™s whole life was the Marines until an
injury left him discharged from active duty. But he finds a
new purpose when heâ€™s recruited by a special unit that
employs ex-military to do very special jobs. Yet heâ€™s not
impressed when his first assignment is babysitting the
pretty, perfect daughter of a politicianâ€”especially when
sheâ€™s far from the angel she appears to be . . .
Callie Hawthorne hates politics, and she hates
playing the part of a senatorâ€™s goody two shoes daughter
even more. It only gets worse when her father decides she
needs a security detail 24/7â€”and the bodyguard happens to be
the most insanely hot guy Callieâ€™s ever seen. Still, sheâ€™s
not going to be ordered around just because of some
half-assed threat to her father. . . . But when it turns out
her dadâ€™s no angel either, Jack has to kidnap Callie in
order to protect her. And as danger closes in, heâ€™ll need
all his considerable talents to keep them both alive. The
greater challenge will be to keep his hands off her . . .
