Dangerous Survivor (Crimson Point Series Book 7) by Kaylea Cross
She’s come back to face her demons.
Ember Thiessen is the sole survivor of a horrific attack that killed her brother and blew her world apart. Months later when she learns that his dog has been found, she returns to Crimson Point, ready to confront the past and reclaim her life. The last thing she expects is to recognize the hard, reclusive man who rescued the pup—a man she has crossed paths with before. He’s everything she’s come to fear. Big. Hard. Deadly. Yet she’s drawn to him on the deepest level. But the danger isn’t over yet. The killer responsible for all her nightmares has escaped, and Ember finds herself turning to this hardened soldier for protection.
He’s the only man who can keep her safe.
After leaving his elite military career and its painful end behind, Boyd Masterson retreated to a solitary life in the hills above Crimson Point. All he wants is peace and quiet. Then Ember suddenly appears on his doorstep, and everything changes. He knows what she went through. Knows that she’s still healing and trying to put her life back together. He’s a damaged warrior, the last thing she needs, but she calls to a part of him that still yearns to protect and defend. When the man responsible for killing her brother decides she’s a loose end, Boyd doesn’t hesitate to step up and protect her. But as the attraction between them builds and the killer moves in, Boyd realizes he’s risking his heart as well as his life.
