THE TOUGHER THEY ARE, THE HARDER THEY FALL...Mercenary Dare Macintosh lives by one hard-and-fast rule: business should never be personal. If the price is right, he'll take the mission. But then Molly Alexander asks him to help her track down the men who'd had her kidnapped and for the first time, Dare's tempted to combine work with pleasure. Fiercely independent, Molly vows to trust no one until she's uncovered the truth. Could the enemy be her powerful, estranged father? The ex-fiance who still holds a grudge? Or the not-so-shy fan of her bestselling novels? As the danger heats up around them, the only anchor Molly has is Dare himself. But what she feels for him just might be the most frightening thing of all.
