Two agents, two services, one vow—justice…

NCIS Supervisory Special Agent in Charge Kai Talbot takes an interest in a case that involves a petty officer who was tortured and murdered in her home. After a preliminary investigation, the victim is tied to a CGIS agent, but when Kai goes to question him, she finds him missing. She also finds CGIS Special Agent Davis Nishida, a man she has been fantasizing about ever since she first met him and to top it off, she’d just had an embarrassing encounter with him the night before. The man took her out of her comfort zone and tested her control. His dark good looks, his take charge attitude, and the chemistry that sizzles between them all added up to a serious problem. A lifetime ago she lost so tragically that she never wanted to be that vulnerable again. But Davis stirred something in her that is irresistible and compelling. Working together was like flicking the switch on a bomb. There’s no doubt it’s going to go off…violently.

Davis finds himself back in the presence of Kai, the intriguing, tough but fair leader of the crack NCIS team. He’s determined to make this a joint operation between the services. After a terrible tragedy that compounds and confuses the case, Kai and Davis find themselves going to Ecuador. He and Kai dig in deeper and the deeper they go, the closer they get to that predicted explosion. The tempting and captivating presence of Kai, a sensual pressure undermining his control, is already pushing so many buttons. As the threat builds and the investigation heats up, so does their connection, but will they be able to find a path forward once the case is solved…if they survive.

Shortly after a very rough mission in Costa Rica, where Sam “Buck” Buckard meets the intriguing and beautiful Maritza Navarro, and later is intimate with her, he’s tagged by the CIA. They’re convinced the Navarro’s coffee plantation is one of the stopgaps in the transportation of drugs from Colombia and Mexico. They recruit him and the team to head back to Costa Rica where Buck will cultivate a relationship with Martiza to get the intel they need to find the people responsible for aiding the cartels. They will assist the DEA, while giving protection to the family. Torn between his duty and his attraction to Maritza, she and her family saved their lives, Buck has to pull up on the reins, but still get close to Maritza. He’s there to do a job, keep the Navarro family safe, while ferreting out the traitor and dismantling the threat against the family. But Buck finds it difficult to deceive this coffee princess, the passion they had experienced keeps getting in the way.

Maritza was born and raised in two countries, the United States and Costa Rica. Her mother is a wealthy American philanthropist, tied to a powerful political family, and her dad is the owner of one of the oldest coffee plantations in the country. After spending most of her adult life dedicated to her family and the business, she finds it so easy to fall for Buck’s cowboy charm and his warrior attitude. But when she’s business, she’s all business, and keeping her family safe and her family business intact is more important than anything. Except she can’t forget that night with him and the longer he’s close to her the more the pressure builds, and that one-night stand turns into something more when he returns to the plantation. He’s so down to earth, so real compared to the men she’s encountered, unaware that Buck is keeping secrets affecting her whole world. But when life and death is on the line, all that matters is survival.

Bale “Shark” Maddox, and the team are deployed to Haiti to the US Embassy in Port-au-Prince as an insurance policy for the protection of the ambassador, his family and the embassy. There’s a new leader, and although the country seems to be stabilizing, he’s convinced anything could set it off. His team is responsible for making sure the ambassador and his family are safe and if need be, evacuated if things get ugly. Shark is introduced to Ambassador Clay Towson, his wife, Kate, and their daughter, Dr. Madeline Towson. She’s there as a seismologist studying the area for research purposes. She’s the most beautiful woman he’s ever met and getting tangled up on an active mission isn’t smart, but the woman is giving him all the signals that she’s interested and he’s having a hard time putting on the brakes. Shark gets edgy once it’s discovered that the president is ill, according to the prime minister who’s barring the ambassador from contact with the president while he recovers.

Maddy is blown away by Shark from the moment she meets him and hijacks the embassy limo by mistake. But she’s always been content to live in her own world and chooses to see everything as a glass half-full. Shark is the exact opposite, but Maddy has never met a man she couldn’t charm, and he’s no different. Before she knows it, he’s the one teaching her not only about relationships, but about herself. Her love life has been a wreck since the last eighteen months and getting involved again just wouldn’t be smart. Except as she gets to know the man, it becomes much more difficult to deny her growing feelings for him. As the danger mounts and her attraction to Shark simmers, it’s not clear what is going to blow first, the situation or the heat between them.
