Garrett Hawkins is the most valuable asset to his Special Forces unit—because frankly, the guy doesn’t care if he lives or dies anymore. Since the love of his life, Sage Weston, was kidnapped and killed with her medical unit a year ago, Garrett has turned the shell of his soul into the impenetrable armor of a finely-tuned fighting machine. Being the first tapped for the unit’s craziest missions is just fine by him. The less time for memories, and the agony they carve into his soul, the better.

It’s a plan that works—until one night, deep in the jungles of Thailand, Garrett’s world is upended when memories become stunning reality. The unit is called to rescue a group of kidnapped aid workers, only the head count on the retrieval is unexpectedly doubled. Sage and her teammates, believed dead, are very much alive. Only now that Sage is back in his arms, Garrett doesn’t know what to do. He has changed in dramatic and daunting ways, especially in the darker tastes of his passion. If he touches Sage again, he’ll want to claim her, restrain her…dominate her.

Is Sage’s love strong enough to let Garrett back in not only as her fiancé, but her Dominant? Can she trust that visiting the new shadows of his life will lead her to ecstasy and not ruin? Or can it be that Garrett’s discipline is exactly what her own soul needs to find its way back to life—and love—once again?


A year after the Army declared Sage dead, Garrett still hasn’t moved on.  He’s doing his job, still tough as nails but can’t stop mourning the love of his life.  Sage has spent a year avoiding kidnappers only to be captured and prepped for sale as a sex slave.  Garrett and his team have no idea who they’re being sent in to rescue and he cannot believe it’s Sage and she’s alive.

What ensues is a very realist period of readjustment.  Garrett fears asserting his dominate side because of what Sage was put through.  Sage must find herself and fit back into her old life.

Their external strife isn’t over though and Sage is again nabbed by the same human traffickers.  The action is tense, the love is deep and the sex is hot!  This book is more than a romance, more than kink and more than a thriller, making it a great read!

Payne has again written a book any reader will enjoy!
