He’s a man on a mission…

Explosives expert Navy Lieutenant Finn Riddock might be on enforced leave from duty, but that doesn’t mean he’ll walk away from the trouble brewing next door. Especially when his sexy professor neighbor is receiving escalating threats.

Nikki Thornton is trying to restore the home of a literary luminary before she opens it to the public, but someone in the neighborhood is determined to stop her. When Finn insists on offering his protection, Nikki can’t deny the combustible attraction. But as their time together ticks down, secrets from the past are set to detonate…
