Ambushed and left for dead, U.S. Secret Service K-9 Officer Markus York is on the mend and laying low in a safe house. But Markus isn’t good at sitting still and inadvertently tears open his wounds.Fresh out of a bad relationship that ended after a car accident left her with limited mobility, freelance accountant Cassidy Morgan has sworn off men. At least, that’s the plan. Until a frantically barking dog leads her to a neighbor’s house where she finds a mysterious man out cold and bleeding on the floor. Despite Markus’s surly attitude, Cassidy senses there’s something else at work beneath his rugged, keep-your-distance exterior. Whatever it is, it’s sexy as hell.With someone still trying to kill him, Markus doesn’t want an innocent to get hurt, let alone take care of him. If only his dog wasn’t crazy in love with her. If only the chemistry between Markus and Cassidy didn’t explode whenever they were in the same room. If only Cassidy wasn’t a target now, too.
