"Houston, we have a hot-astronaut problem…"
Survival expert and control freak Jessie Odell has faced the most hazardous environments on earth.

and suddenly Jessie is breathless with raw excitement—something she hasn't felt for a long, long time—and it scares her to death.
Hemi isn't just some sexy distraction. Jessie actually likes the guy—and that makes him more treacherous than an Everest ascent.
It also means Hemi's that much harder to resist. With every hungry, heat-fueled encounter, Jessie skirts closer to that dangerous edge.
Falling for this space cowboy is definitely high stakes…but could the payoff be worth the risk?

When Ellie Golden meets Harry Dixon, she can’t help but feel she recognises him from somewhere.
But when she finally realises who he is, she can’t believe it – because the man she met on the
beach all those years before wasn’t called Harry Dixon. And, what’s more, that man is dead.
For a woman trying to outrun her troubled past and protect her son, Harry’s presence is deeply unsettling –
and even more disconcerting than coming face to face with a dead man, is the fact that Harry seems to have
no recollection of ever having met Ellie before. At least that’s what he says …
But perhaps Harry isn’t the person Ellie should be worried about. Because there’s a far more dangerous
figure from the past lurking just outside of the new life she has built for herself, biding his time,
just waiting to strike.
