But unbeknownst to many, Travis is haunted by the mysterious death of his wife three years before. He carries with him the guilt of not being there to protect the one person who meant everything to him. He has buried his wife, but his heart refuses to accept that the body six feet under is hers. His obsessive search for her leads him deep into the trenches of covert ops—and everything is not what it seems.
Caitlin Kincaid has been on the run for a while. The sum of her memories began three years ago when she awakened with a broken arm and leg and a severe concussion. Hunted down by a secret group within the U.S. government, her companion persuades her to stay off the grid because of the standing kill order on their heads. One night, while fleeing assassins, she is left on the side of the road with a cryptic message: “It’s time for you to stop running. I’m not the one you love.”
When Travis receives news that the woman who has turned up at the American Embassy in Berlin could be his wife, he wastes no time getting to her. He is unprepared for the devastation that shreds him when Caitlin looks at him with no recognition in her eyes. Amnesia is a challenging enough obstacle for winning the love of his life back. But with lies defining the past three years of her life, Caitlin becomes wary of anyone’s help.
Love was never the problem. A marriage cannot survive without trust. As sinister forces threaten the bond they are trying to rebuild, trust must come quickly or one of them will die.

4.5 ALPHA STARS!!!
I can't begin to explain how much I loved this book! I just saw a friend's review comparing it to Kristen Ashley, and those were my exact thoughts while reading this book! Kristen Ashley but BETTER!!!
Now I don't want any confusion, this is not a Dark Romance, what it is is an action packed romantic suspense! I think the author must have done so much research into military and government protocols, because the amount of detail that went into this book was OUTSTANDING!!!
A STRONG POSSESSIVE ALPHA
AN INTELLIGENT AND STRONG HEROINE
BADASS MILITARY MEN
HOT AS FUCK SEX
AN ENDEARING ROMANCE
Those are just some of the reasons this book was so amazing! My reading material has become so limited lately and it's my own fault. I love hot, smutty romance, but with the recent (view spoiler)[popularity of threesomes (hide spoiler)] I've felt overwhelmed. I'm old school, I like my romance hot as fuck but I never venture out of my comfort zone and I don't think I ever will!

End of extended synopsis "Christine Style"
"That was fate babe." he whispered, his voice laden with tenderness. "Never had a relationship in my life, and in one night, it just hit me. You took my breath away, and I handed you my heart. I was a goner."
The SWOONS were endless, Travis is possessive, controlling, jealous but he wears his heart on his sleeve. And the sweet words that came out of his mouth were just as swoon worthy as his dirty talk! This guy has now been added to my BEST BOOK BOYFRIENDS.
"Ah...babe," he whispered. I'd walk through hell for you, as long as you'll be waiting for me on the other side. I'll go through anything for you. I'll bear all your pain, sunshine.
OMG! Do you see what I mean???? I think I've found an automatic one click author! I wish I'd finished this book last weekend because it was only 99 pennies and I could have told everyone!
So if you're looking for a HOT ALPHA MALE and a STRONG KICKASS HEROINE, this book is for you. Be ready for fast paced, non stop action and exciting twists and turns. Oh and a great romance!
You married a SEAL. We're tenacious, persistent, and we don't know how to fail. You think with the greatest battle in my life and that's winning you back-I'm going to fuck up now? Not happening. You were mine. You will be mine again.
