Protecting a witness targeted for a mob hit is the job of a U.S. Marshal; getting distracted by the subject’s landlady is not. But distracted is exactly what Mal Kwarles gets by the honey-blonde single mother of four.

Muggers and heroes beware. If you sneak up on Grace Witoczynski, she will knock you to your knees with keys locked between her fingers. She has a family to support, kids to raise. She doesn’t have time for complications, but she might not mind a little assistance from good male role models—especially one who lights fires of longing in her.

When a potential killer stalks Grace’s family baseball games, Mal knows he must protect Grace and her family, right down to taking on the mob, even if it means sacrificing his life…

Cameron Smith, the world’s youngest self-made billionaire, was not the kind of businessman who personally dealt with violently emerging third world countries, yet that’s where he found himself.

Acasia Jones, a hostage retrieval expert, had known Cameron since they were teenagers. Their friendship had been accidental and immediate and love quickly followed. But fate had steered them apart, and only now, 16 years later, did it force them back together in the midst of machine gun fire and a race for survival in the South American rainforest.

Would he understand her life choices and the terrifying experiences on which they were based? Would she allow him to bridge her protective barriers? Or would their love remain elusive… like WATER FROM THE MOON?
