The Dark Alliance, formed from the remnants of the Knights Templar of the Middle Ages, has thrived in secret over the centuries, growing in strength as they recruited the most skilled soldiers from around the world, regardless of race, religion, or creed, to join their ranks. Working outside the law, they strive to protect the innocent and fight to maintain a tenuous balance that keeps any one person, country, or organization from dictating the course of history.
Currently operating under the guise of a multi-billion-dollar private equity firm, Temple Knight & Associates, they are at their strongest. But their strides toward peace are at risk. For although their leaders refuse to accept the truth, their old enemies, the Illuminati, are rising once more, threatening to unleash chaos upon the world and establish their own vision for a new world order.
Enter Luke Rogan. A former member of the Special Forces who was recruited to the Alliance while working black ops for the U.S. government, this 6’4” wall of muscle is the personification of tall, dark, and dangerous. Luke prides himself on not getting too attached to anyone—after all, it’s a necessary skill in his line of work. The way he sees it, he’d only bring trouble to the door of anyone he was stupid enough to care about so it’s best to avoid relationships altogether—especially any of a romantic nature. But when Luke meets Sarah Scoffield he’s surprised to find his cold heart is powerless against the warmth of her gentle love. And with the Alliance’s enemies closing in, he realizes if he doesn’t get the beautiful young mother and her son to headquarters ASAP, he could be in serious danger of losing more than just his heart...
Widowed by what she believes was an accident, Sarah Scoffield has spent the last few years trying to make a life for her and her son Eli in their quiet Oregon town, far removed from her estranged father’s world of political influence. Little does she realize that her father is not only a prominent senator but also a member of the Dark Alliance, and he’s privy to the Alliance's most valuable secrets. Now it seems her father’s enemies plan to use her and Eli to further their own agendas. On the run and with the Illuminati closing in, Sarah will do anything she must to protect her son—even if it means trusting a man like Luke Rogan. Deadly and mysterious and yet fiercely protective of her and Eli, Luke is a riddle—and one Sarah would very much like to solve…
