From New York Times bestselling author Kay Hooper comes a classic love story about a man who lives by his own strict code-and the headstrong woman who's determined to crack it. When car trouble leaves her stranded in a deserted corner of the Rockies, love is the last thing on Teddy Tyler's mind. But there's no denying the attraction that grips her the minute she lays eyes on Zach Steele, a rugged security expert staking out a gang of gunrunners in a remote mountain cabin. Zach has survived this long by adhering to a few simple principles: Travel light, travel fast, and travel alone. Now, to keep from blowing his cover, he must hold Teddy hostage for a week-if, that is, he can keep at bay his own simmering feelings for her. Teddy's not that easily confined, especially when her man's in danger. So when a simple surveillance job turns into a deadly game of cat-and-mouse, she must convince the original lone wolf to let her help-or see their chance at love fall prey to one of Zach's deadliest enemies.
