Two scarred souls: one physically, one mentally. Both on the mend, hiding from their
Mace Walker can’t wait to get home.
Being buried deep undercover for the past two years, on the most complex case of his
career, has torn him down physically and mentally. Now the FBI agent has come home
to recover after having his leg badly injured from a gunshot wound. Arriving home late
one night, his relief is short-lived as he’s faced with a stranger pointing a gun to his
head, acting like he is the one who doesn’t belong there!
Colby Parks, a biochemist at the local university, had come to town a year earlier to
escape an abusive relationship. She vows never to put herself in that situation again.
Then the perfect opportunity comes along: house-sitting for Mace’s sister while making
the house she purchased habitable. But she couldn’t anticipate this big snag: the one
wearing the tight Levis and worn leather jacket, looking like he had just escaped prison.
Being forced to share a house creates sparks between them in more ways than one.
However, things take a turn when their pasts catch up to them, threatening to pull them
As Mace Walker slid the key into the lock, an immediate sense of relief washed over
him. He hadn’t been home in…Hell, forever. Even though he owned the house and
considered it his home, he felt like a stranger when he opened the front door. He
chucked his keys on the table by the door with a sigh. He’d been home for a whole thirty
seconds and restlessness already ate at him.
The house was quiet, and he wondered where his sister was. Probably sleeping,
dummy, since it was—he glanced at his watch—freaking one in the morning. Most
normal folk slept at this hour. But then, he wasn’t normal. He couldn’t be to do his job.
But, he couldn’t do his job right now, anyway. He’d been forced home to heal.
Against his wishes.
The foyer was dark, but he didn’t need to hit the light. He still knew the house well
enough. He made his way to the stairs where he dumped his duffle bags on the floor
and ran a hand through his too-long hair.
Those two small duffels held little evidence of his life for the past couple years—just
some toiletries and a few basic items of clothing.
He turned toward the kitchen, and the foyer lit up, blinding him for a second. He
blinked against the harsh light, and a young voice rang out from the top of the steps.
“Hold it right there! Put your arms up and back away from the stairs.”
What the fuck?
Mace had expected to see his sister bounding down the stairway of his two-story
colonial, excited after not seeing him for the past two years. Actually, more like one
year, eleven months, and fifteen days. Not that he’d counted.
But instead, he stared up into the deadly eye of a Glock. And from his viewpoint, it
looked like a model 27, a .40 caliber—a compact, but still a decent sized gun in a very
small, very uneasy hand. Instantly, the hairs on the back of his neck rose.
He’d dealt with crime bosses and their flunkies—from drug to porno rings—and had
managed to survive. Now he was going to be killed by some measly punk he surprised
while burglarizing his house when he happened to come home? The cruel irony made
him want to laugh. Instead, he did as instructed. With caution, he raised his hands
above his head before stepping back toward the middle of the foyer. He avoided
standing directly under the light, trying to get a better view of the top of the steps. But he
didn’t have much success; the upstairs hallway and the upper section of the stairway
were hidden in shadows.
If he played his cards right, this little situation would be under his control in no time
at all. He just had to keep the kid calm and make the skinny punk believe he was the
one in command. The Glock didn’t have a conventional safety. All the kid had to do was
pull the trigger and pull it again and again until all the rounds in the clip emptied into
Mace’s body. And from what he could see in the limited light, the kid’s fingers twitched
Not a good sign.
Where had a young punk gotten an expensive handgun like that? It certainly hadn’t
been in the house. And if it had been, it would have been locked up in the gun safe.
If only he could see the boy’s face. He needed to see the eyes. Without seeing
those, Mace couldn’t even begin to predict what the kid would do.
“Don’t you dare move, or I’ll blow your face off!” The kid’s voice raised an octave,
making him sound more and more like…a female.
Mace tensed when the person started down the steps. At first, he could see bare
toes, a slim calf, then another. His gaze flicked to the gun before returning to the
shapely naked thighs which couldn’t belong to a kid. No fucking way. Especially not a
boy. Those smooth legs definitely belonged to a woman, and he couldn’t wait to see the
rest of her.
So far, the view almost made it worth being held at gunpoint. Almost.
