In a small town in Texas, everyone has a secret. Especially Chuck Bolton. Formerly a Special Forces soldier, Chuck now poses as a ranch handyman. His real mission? To protect his ex-fiancee, and the baby girl he never knew they'd created, from a malevolent masked man. Who is behind the attack-and what could they possibly want with Peggy Jane "PJ" Franks? While the answer remains unclear, one thing is certain: Chuck never stopped loving PJ after she left him.

Navy SEAL Ian Dunn went rogue in a big way when he turned his talents to a lawless life of jewel heists and con jobs - or so the world has been led to believe. In reality, the former Special Ops warrior is still fighting for good, leading a small band of freelance covert operatives who take care of high-stakes business in highly unofficial ways. That makes Ian the hands-down choice when the US government must breach a heavily guarded embassy and rescue a pair of children kidnapped by their own father, a sinister foreign national willing to turn his kids into casualties.

This story is an enjoyable shifter fantasy with mainly romance and some suspense and SWAT team excitement. It was a bit too long with too much repetition and description at times. Still very entertaining with very good narration. Four stars for the story, five stars for the narration.
