Graham Peck had his life planned out. Serve in the Coast Guard like the rest of his family. See the world. But an innocent New Year’s kiss—with another man—leads to a vicious attack that forces him back into civilian life. A life he has no idea how to navigate.
Until he hooks up with a group of deadly, battle-worn soldiers. They don’t care who he loves—as long as he stays on mission.
Quinton Silver can’t make it down his front steps. Not since the man who was supposed to love him turned out to be a monster. Inside, hiding under an assumed name in a city halfway across the country from his deranged lover, he’s safe. Even if he is alone.
Desperation leads to a chance meeting, and while Graham and Quinton have every reason not to trust one another, they’re drawn together by an unstoppable force neither can control.
Can they heal one another? Or will one wrong move lead Q’s stalker right to his door?
