The past haunts her. . .


Doctor Anne Nichols is only back in Red Creek, Wyoming because she has no other options. She left years ago, broken and bleeding, without anyone really noticing. So she’s not surprised nobody there recognizes her as the stuttering, socially awkward girl she used to be. 


Except Zac Mackay. The very reason she ran in the first place.


The present hunts her. . .

Zac’s years in Special Forces taught him the skills to stay alive in the most dangerous of circumstances. Now he has dedicated his life and built a company—Linear Tactical—to teach those same survival skills to others, so they don’t have to live in fear. 


Then why is Annie, the last person he’d ever want to hurt, afraid of him


Zac’s determined to wipe the fear from the eyes of the woman who has never been far from his mind. And fix the mistakes—his mistakes—that put that look there in the first place. But Zac's not the only one who's set his sights on Annie. Survival skills become much more than lessons when a predator starts prowling the streets of Red Creek . . . and puts Anne in his crosshairs.
