"Fantastic characters, scorching sexual tension, and non-stop action make this one of my favorite reads this year "--New York Times bestselling author Laura Kaye

RITA nominee Scarlett Cole's Under Fire pairs a hot Navy SEAL with a medical researcher who finds herself in too deep.

Hot, hard-bodied Sixton Rapp is a former SEAL who's raring to begin his brand-new civilian life. He and his Navy "brothers" start a security firm that offers the kind of services only a team of military-trained professionals can provide. But nothing prepared Six for his new client: an innocent woman on a mission to improve thousands of lives. . . unless someone takes hers first.

Dr. Louisa North knows time is against her as she tries to create a "miracle" medical treatment for a disease with no known cure, until she creates a sample so powerful that the wrong people want to use it as a chemical weapon. At first, Six is unwilling to accept Louisa as his client. But soon he realizes that the danger is real and that there's much more to this plain-Jane scientist...including a burning passion between them that neither of them can resist. And now that an enemy is on Louisa's trail, Six will do whatever it takes to protect her--or die trying.

"Cole is a genius at weaving together heart-racing, suspenseful moments with scorching intimacy and real characters." - USA Today
