Adventure. Danger. Excitement.
Those were not words PAVAD Internal Affairs Supervisor Kyra Dillon wanted to hear in conjunction with her life ever again. She'd had enough adventure in her life lately-and had the bullet scar on her temple to prove it.
But she'd go through all that hell again if it meant never returning to her hometown-Value, Texas. Population 897.
Agent Camden Lake, with PAVAD's Runaway & Endangered Youth unit, was used to going non-stop from one case to another. Danger and adventure were all that kept him from remembering the little sister he hadn't been able to keep safe.
She was Barratt County's only open missing child case to this day. Cam had spent most of the twenty years since protecting those who needed it. It was why he'd joined the FBI in the first place. Why he'd taken the PAVAD assignment and left his Texas home behind.
The FBI conference brought him back to his hometown and his family.
Until Dr. Kyra Dillon sent up a distress signal.
From only fifty miles away.
Cam was a protector and Kyra needed protected. It was as simple as that for him.
But something about the woman's quiet confidence and manner got under Cam's skin until there wasn't anything he wouldn't do to keep her safe.
They kept running…until they were embroiled in the hunt for the truth and what little Value, Texas was HIDING.
