Between a rock and a hard place.
To Sergeant Zeke Hayes, the expression has always been a non-factor. There’s never been a situation he can’t blast, punch, or smart-ass his way out of, which makes him the perfect fit for his Special Forces battalion–and a natural-born Dominant who’s made a lot of submissives happy from Mt. Rainier to Vancouver.
That all changes when Rayna Chestain enters his world.
From the moment Z snatches Rayna from the lair of a South Asian slave trafficker, his inner grizzly roars to life. This is a huge damn problem, because Z isn’t wired to be a one-woman man. Growing up an orphan on the streets of Seattle has taught him that beyond a few hours in a dungeon, trust means disappointment and love leads to agony. But here he is, in the remote wilderness escape he’d promised not to share with anyone, harboring Rayna from a fiend who now wants his pound of revenge flesh from her.
A hard place.
Sheltering Rayna? Z’s never done anything more right in his life. But wanting her? Dreaming of her beneath him, surrendering to his passion and domination? It’s the most forbidden fruit he can crave…and the only thing he can’t stop thinking about.
A new beginning?
This is a dead-end canyon that no rifle, bomb or sweet talk will let Zeke escape from. The only way out is to confront the reality of what Rayna has done to him…the mountain she’s moved in his intractable heart.
For a long moment, neither she nor Zeke said a thing. The room began to warm. Rayna wasn’t sure if it was the heating ducts, the Scotch, or the proximity of the man who once again had transported her to a place of refuge and safety. She needed to thank him. She yearned to hold him. Instead, she jabbed a toe at the carpet and muttered, “So what now?”
Z let his hand slip from hers. She told herself that she was imagining his reluctance about the move. “A shower for you. Or a bath, if you prefer that. While you’re cleaning up, I need to call Hawk and Captain Franzen. I’ll get the run on how they’re tracking Mua, and make sure both of us are taken off the AWOL grid.”
“Damn. I’d forgotten about that not-so-little slice of red tape.”
One side of his mouth quirked. “It helps to have kidnappers in high places, honey.”
She shot him a giggle. Zeke, clearly pleased with himself for inciting it, sauntered toward the stairs. She gave herself the privilege of watching him for a second. Sweet shitloads of sexy, the man was captivating. His leather club pants moved with his Sequoia tree legs like a second skin. His biceps and pecs fought the constraints of Max’s T-shirt. Nothing in any of his movements betrayed that he hadn’t slept in over twenty hours.
And all she wanted to do, even in her own sleep-deprived state, was get her hands all over him again.
Not a good plan, Ray. Not at all. She fished through the fuzziness in her head to get back the words he’d issued in the car, after that toe-curling kiss they’d shared. Shouldn’t have happened. And it won’t happen again. So the man was beautiful and smart, especially about this. No matter how perfectly their bodies fit, they simply weren’t going to snap right when it came to the same sexual “Like” button.
She prodded her brain to agree. Shoved at the damn thing. Submissiveness? On a regular basis? Her? Right. And tofu was a great side dish for steak.

Okay, listen up. Angel had to take her daughter to the dentist, so this is Zeke Hayes, filling in for her. *Shrugs.* Guess I’m supposed to say something witty about the book. But I’m not exactly the witty type…so I’ll just say this: the story is pretty cool. It’ll make you love my girl, Rayna Chestain, nearly as much as I do. And yeah, I promise that a few things blow up, too…not just my bedroom. *Smirk.* Have a good time reading it. Peace outtie, rough and rowdies.
