At a benefit dinner, community activist Maria Cervantes overhears two men plotting a terrorist attack that could rock Miami to its core. But before she can alert authorities, she’s almost killed in a massive explosion—and wakes up in a hospital with no memory of what happened. As the sole survivor of the attack, she is now a person of interest to the NSA—and especially to Agent Cade O’Reilly. Because Maria is the one woman Cade has never been able to forget.

Years ago, they were closer than either was willing to admit—until Cade disappeared when Maria needed him most. Now he’s sticking by her, whether she likes it or not. Because the memories locked inside her mind could hold vital clues to the next attack. Because terrorists want her dead—and because he never wants to let her go again.

Well, hell. She couldn’t get angry at that.

Just as quickly he dropped his hand and returned his attention to the street.

As he drove through the quiet residential streets, she tried to get ahold of the jumbled mess that her mind was right now. But it was no use. Today had been awful and last night . . . “Why’d you leave so suddenly last night?”

Cade’s hands jerked slightly on the wheel, but he didn’t respond. Just looked in the rearview mirror before pulling into a small parking area next to a local park. There was no one around and no cars anywhere, but he still scanned the area diligently before putting the SUV into park and looking at her.

He cupped her cheek again in that sweet way of his and his eyes dipped to her mouth. For a moment she saw a flash of raw, unrestricted desire in his eyes. He leaned forward a fraction but stopped himself. Still, he didn’t drop his hand, just lightly rubbed his thumb over her cheek. The action was so soft, but it was in opposition to the hunger burning in his gaze. “Last night was . . .”

He seemed to struggle with his words, as if he wanted to say the night before had been a mistake. She was glad he didn’t. She could tell he didn’t plan to take things any further between them, though. But she didn’t have a problem acting on her need. She just wanted a few minutes—okay, hours—of pure pleasure. Something to wash away, or at least mute, the grief burning out of control inside her. Cade was the only one who could help her temporarily forget. She knew this wouldn’t be about a relationship or anything long-term. He’d already shown her that he had no problem walking away. So right now she didn’t feel bad for wanting to use him just a little bit to help ease her grief.

“Cade . . .” She swallowed hard, trying to find the right words as her gaze strayed to his mouth. She wouldn’t bother hiding what she wanted. Without thinking she licked her lips.

The radio was off and she guessed the windows were bullet resistant or something because she couldn’t hear anything outside, not that there were any people nearby. It made the silence in the vehicle deafening, their increasingly ragged breathing the only sounds.

“Maria . . .” There was a wealth of regret in that one word. His hand still cupped her jaw, and his fingers flexed against her skin, the rough pad of them sending a shiver through her.

She refused to accept whatever he was going to say. Leaning over, she brushed her lips against his. Just to test his reaction. After last night she knew how much he wanted her, but she was still feeling vulnerable and yeah, insecure. When their mouths touched, it was like something igniting between them. She felt it all the way down to her toes.
