Jolene Benate should be on top of the world. She had a very coveted spot on the warrant squad, and was the only female team member. She was damn good at her job, and everyone knew it. There was only one thing missing from her existence, and that was a personal life, and love. Her one true love had been stripped away from her six long years ago, and to this day she still felt the acute pain of losing her husband Paul Benate. Jo knew she should try to move on; give her heart a push to meet someone new, but she just couldn't do it.
Paul wasn't dead as everyone assumed he was. He had cut Jolene out of his life because he was working on classified projects, and he was terrified that someone would use her to get to him, so he had taken that possibility away. He did keep tabs on his beautiful wife, and knew she hadn't moved on with someone else just the same as he hadn't. When he could stand it no longer, he decided to have her brought to the current military complex he was working in. Someone trying to get to him had shot her, and it was time he started protecting what was his.
Jolene was abducted from her protection detail, and was being shipped to someone. She had no idea what was going on, but decided that keeping a cool head would be her best line of defense. She had to pay attention, so she could find an opportunity to escape. Nothing could have shocked her more than coming face to face with the husband she had mourned for years. She almost lost it, but reigned herself in, and took the only course of action she could at the moment. Jo resorted to violence, and punched the husband she thought was lost.
Paul is a man that was forced to live with a decision he wished with his soul he could change. He knew he never should have given up his heart's desire in favor of what he wanted to accomplish professionally. Jolene had existed without Paul for years, but never recovered from his loss. As these two lost lovers try to rekindle the love, and loss of trust, outside enemies try to separate them forever. This is a pretty good story, but in several spots it slows to a crawl, and is even boring at times. Overall it is an interesting read, but not a keeper.
