When the stress of the job pushes Sam Magnus to take greater risks than is called for as a helicopter pilot with the US Army 160th Night Stalkers, his commander insists he extend his leave past the time it takes to attend his brother’s wedding to include some much-needed R&R. Like it or not, Sam Magnus isn’t cleared to return to work until he’s had time to cool his heels and learn how to relax. With no clue how to chill, he relies on a dart thrown at a map to determine where he should spend his unwanted vacation. The Greek Island of Santorini it is! Used to non-stop action, the thought of lolling in the sun for two weeks makes him want to hurt someone. Until he interferes with an attempted kidnapping of one hot babe his first night on the island.
Stranded on Santorini, abandoned by the wealthy couple who hired her, former au pair, Kinsey Phillips, has enough going wrong with being broke and homeless, she doesn’t need to add an attempted kidnapping to her list of troubles. An Army helicopter pilot swoops in to rescue her, and thus begins a whole new set of troubles. The man is incredibly handsome and Kinsey knows what guys like that are like—love ‘em and leave ‘em.
No, sir. She’d been there, done that and had scars to prove it. Count her out of a potentially doomed relationship, although she could use his help in the meantime to survive the beautiful but deadly Greek island and get back to the States…alive.
Someone is determined to take Kinsey. It’s not Sam’s job to keep her safe, but he resultantly assumes the responsibility when he discovers she has nowhere else to go. Rest and relaxation is impossible to achieve with a sexy blond sharing his cottage, especially when her attackers aren’t willing to forgo their prize.
