Caught between desire and loyalty…
Derek DiMarzio would do anything for the members of his disgraced Special Forces team—sacrifice his body, help a former teammate with a covert operation to restore their honor, and even go behind enemy lines. He just never expected to want the beautiful woman he found there.
When a sexy stranger asks questions about her brother, Emilie Garza is torn between loyalty to the brother she once idolized and fear of the war-changed man he's become. Derek’s easy smile and quiet strength tempt Emilie to open up, igniting the desire between them and leading Derek to crave a woman he shouldn’t trust.
As the team’s investigation reveals how powerful their enemies are, Derek and Emilie must prove where their loyalties lie before hearts are broken and lives are lost. Because love is too hard to come by to let slip away…
Hard to Come By by Laura Kaye
A steamin’ hot romance, an ex-military trying to clear his name and a baffling conspiracy all make Hard to Come By a great read.
Derek has been discharged along with his fellow team from the military. Now they hope to uncover the plot behind the framing of their team. The deeper they dig the more enemies they uncover. Emilie Garza is the only link to a man they know, knows the answers to the conspiracy behind the team's framing. When Derek approaches Emilie, he quickly finds himself drawn to her like no other woman. Can he trust the woman that is growing to grab his heart or does her loyalties lie elsewhere.
The team must face the gang out for blood while a new and much bigger threat comes onto their radar.
Hard to Come By takes its action intense plot to an entirely new level with explosions, gun fights and a passion that can’t be denied. The characters face not only the danger behind the conspiracy but difficult choices that question their loyalty to family by blood and by choice.
If you are a fan of this series you will find the past character interaction a definite plus to Kaye’s writing.
I enjoyed this story. The characters are relatable and realistic. Facing insurmountable odds, the group has become a true family giving us something to really get behind. Kaye provided another highly entertaining, high velocity, smoking hot installment to Hark Ink series.
