"Navy men don't come tougher than Lieutenant Peter Greene. Every day he whips hotshot SEAL wannabes into elite fighters. So why can't he handle one fifteen-year-old girl? His ex's death left him a single dad overnight, and though he can't relate to an angsty teen, he can at least keep Maddie safe--until she disappears. Certain his daughter is in danger, Pete turns to the Troubleshooters...and an unconventional ally. Romance writer Shayla Whitman never expected to be drawn into a real-world thriller. Shay's not as bold as her heroines, but she's a mother. She knows there's no greater terror for a parent than having a child at risk. And she won't let Pete face that ordeal alone. She's no trained operative, but she's smart, resourceful, and knows what makes teenagers tick. But intimate feelings between Shay and Pete could threaten their mission--and have deadly consequences for Pete's daughter. No matter what, they must be on top of their game, and playing for keeps." -- Page  cover.
