Ex-Navy SEAL Cole Fields is back home in Texas, trying to put the pieces of his shattered life together. When he meets auburn-haired pastry chef Madeline Forrester, he feels his first glimmer of hope for the future.
Madeline can't deny her attraction to the muscular, blue-eyed Cole. He makes her feel things no man ever has. But he doesn't know she's on the run ... from dangerous people who will stop at nothing to get what they want.
When Madeline's past catches up to her, it's more than she can handle alone. Cole is determined to protect her - but can he and Maddie survive long enough to build a new life together, or will a gang of vicious mobsters destroy their chance at happiness?
