December never knew what love was until a chance meeting at a bar where a tall, dark and handsome stranger saves her life from five stray bullets. Without knowing who he was, she sets out to find out why he had the gall to save her, and why, to him, she was so important in the first place.
Dallas Stone-- one of the Protectors of the Dire-- who is also the denounced Troll Prince never forgets a face. Newly over the dramatic events to make sure the Turnroses were safe and sound before he went off overseas, he's back home, single and more than ready to mingle. His run-in with December opens his nostrils and piques his curiosity.
Upon meeting the mysterious damsel for the second time, they spin a steamy, dangerous relationship full of sticky sheets and adrenaline rushes, all the while learning of who one another really is. A stealth Marine, and a highly-paid hitwoman. Between a Troll and a headstrong Orca, love has to present for survival. However, Dallas's promises to Crystal Turnrose come back to bite him in the backside, putting his whirlwind romance in jeopardy. Neither of them ceases to run out of skeletons in their closets.
