Brooke Clayton is in trouble. Deep in the shadowy woods outside Nashville, the young activist stumbled on something she was never meant to see—something that she can never reveal if she values her life. Now, as an unknown enemy closes in, she must take drastic measures to disappear. Brooke’s only hope for survival is to accept help from her uncle, Major Christopher Dane, and his team of highly trained operatives. Dane entrusts his niece’s safety to one of his most reliable men, Hunter, a.k.a. Owl. Brooke and Owl go into hiding, posing as a married couple volunteering at a Civil War reenactment site. As Brooke comes to trust her protector, their connection deepens and their cover relationship begins to feel all too real. But when danger encroaches on their make-believe world and explosive truths are revealed, Hunter and Brooke risk everything to expose the discovery she tried so hard to escape—and as peril looms ever closer, it’s too late to proceed with caution . . .
