Love is war when shadows play games with the heart. In this thrilling romance from the USA Today bestselling author of Stone Walls and Glass Ceilings, a decorated veteran facing the darkest battlefield finds a guiding light to trust and tenderness.

A real hero can protect and serve, but a true hero knows how to love.

David Cavello is no longer in uniform, but the memories of combat still haunt his every waking moment. Driven to protect and serve, he accepts an undercover job he has to keep hidden from everyone. But David’s mission goes against orders the second he makes contact with gorgeous and spirited Maygen Whitney. The intense attraction he feels for Maygen drives him crazy—almost as crazy as he feels about hiding information from her.

After growing up with an overprotective father, Maygen feels like she’s finally claiming her independence. Sure, she’s been lonely, but David seems to make all her dreams come deliciously true—until the sting of betrayal sends her world spiraling. Now Maygen’s caught in a tragic web of lies, leaving her more vulnerable than ever to an enemy hidden in the shadows. But when Maygen most needs a hero, David leaps into action—intent on doing whatever it takes to save the woman he loves.

My Review

I remember loving the first book of the series and I was sure that I'd love this one too. So did! I first discovered A.M. Madden when I read her Back Up series, which I thought was fantastically entertaining. She hasn't steered me wrong yet!

This story is about David, a war vet battling PTSD, and how by letting in a ray of sunshine named Maygen, she would brighten up his "dark corners". She made battling his demons a whole lot easier. Both characters were well-developed and extremely likable. David was a hot and sexy, brooding Alpha with a lot of heart. Pretty soon we also realize he was passionate, considerate, honourable, protective and loving. Maygen was beautiful, driven, compassionate and caring. Their relationship was at once steady and combustible.

This story had plenty of drama, whether through outside influences or internal struggles. It also has a suspenseful element that added another tempting layer to the plot to keep things interesting. With adorable side characters and plenty of witty banter, this book deserves every one of its four stars!!
