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…
Derek "Marz" DiMarzio recently reunited with his Special Forces teammates to uncover the truth of why they were dishonorably discharged and threatened with prison.
Marz helps the Team look for Manny Garza in connection with the investigation into the past. He discovers that Garza has a sister living in Annapolis.
He, along with his best friend, Murda, make contact with Emilie Garza. Emilie Garza is worried about her brother, Manny. She's seeing signs of instability and paranoia, but she doesn't know how to help him.
When Derek meets Emilie, his first instincts tell him that she's not a part of what Manny is involved in. Derek discovers that he really likes Emilie, but doesn't like lying to her either.
As the Team gets closer to discover what is on the microchip, the danger they are all in becomes bigger than any of them imagined. Will Manny Garza be found? Will Derek admit his feelings for Emilie? What is on the microchip? Your answers await you in Hard to Come By.
The Hard Ink Series has completely sucked me in with the incredible characters and their stories. I've liked Marz since his introduction. I'm so glad that he found Emilie.
Laura Kaye has clearly written a series that's compelling and intriguing. She's on my definite must-read-and-buy list.
