His past came knocking…
The last person Navy SEAL Dalton Jennings standing at his door was the woman who dumped him five years ago without any explanation. Nothing! Now she’s back, and the secret she reveals is enough to bring Dalton to his knees. Someone has kidnapped their daughter—a child he never knew existed—and he will have to break every SEAL code he’s sworn to uphold and steal government property to find his little girl.
And offered a whole new future…
Kimber Grant has put off this meeting for five years. Cowardly, yes, but how do you tell the man you deserted he has a child? Not to mention Kimber never stopped loving Dalton. Now she’s desperate for his help. After all, who better to carry out a convert mission than a SEAL? The kidnappers want a computer chip developed by her boss for the Dept. of Defense, and they will kill anyone who gets in the way. Including Kimber.
When she’s taken, Dalton realizes he’s got two girls who have his heart—Kimber always has. And he’ll be damned if greed is going to take either away from him now that he’s got them back.
Okay just an observation here, if you don’t want a relationship don’t take time off. It seems in all these books, these guys finally get some down time and they end up with someone coming into their lives to change it forever.
That’s okay though. In this one Dalton gets more than just a visit from his past, he finds out he has a daughter. A daughter who’s been kidnapped, the ransom computer chips made by the company Kimber, his ex, works for.
“Something tells me getting these chips is more complicated than walking into your office, picking them up, then walking out, huh?” Holden asked.
Kimber nodded. “JASCO Technologies designs integrated circuits and software routines for a lot of different applications. Everything from video games, satellites, and self-driving cars to classified Department of Defense programs. The chips they want are in the secure side of our facility and there are mountains of barriers between it and the areas I normally have access to. I tried to tell the man who called me that they had the wrong person. That there was no way I could get what they wanted—”
“But they didn’t care,” Dalton finished for her.
“No.” Kimber looked so defeated and hopeless that it tore his heart out. “They told me to figure out a way and gave me three days to do it or…or they’ll kill our daughter.”
Dalton stared down at the photo of his daughter, his heart beginning to pound. They’d given Kimber three days. Assuming the clock had started ticking when they’d grabbed Emma, that left them less than forty-eight hours to make this happen.
“And you have no idea who these people are?” Wes asked. “You didn’t recognize the man’s voice?”
She shook her head, another tear running down her cheek. “I don’t even know what kind of chips they are. They just gave me a product ID number, which is how we track components in the facility. The only people who know exactly what the chips do is the CEO of the company, a few of the top security people, and the engineers who built it.”
“Have you told any of them about the kidnapping?” Holden asked. “Or called the cops?”
Kimber shook her head again. “They warned me not to. I was afraid that if I did, they’d hurt Emma.”
“Good thing you didn’t,” Dalton said. “If you mentioned it to JASCO, their first concern would be securing the chips. And if you told the police, the first thing they would have done was tell the company. By the time everyone went through all of their protocols and official procedures, the kidnappers would kill Emma.”
Kimber winced and Dalton immediately cursed himself for saying the words out loud. “Which means the only choice I have is to get the chips for them.”
Dalton frowned. “Even if you could get your hands on the chips, you have to know they’re almost certainly going to kill you and Emma the moment they have what they want, right?”
“I know, which is why I came to you.” She looked up at him, her beautiful brown eyes pleading. “I can’t steal those chips or save Emma by myself. I need help, Dalton, and you’re the only person I know who can pull something like this off. You have every reason in the world to say no, but I’m begging you to say yes. Please.”
