“Sexy.” He grinned. “A woman who knows who she is, confident and smart…” He glanced at her. A blush had turned her face red. He wanted to touch her, feel the heat infusing her skin. “Later, I’m going to kiss you a hell of a lot.”

She glared at him. “You’re assuming there’s going to be a later.”

“Seriously hot,” he repeated in husky voice. “Our nap wasn’t nearly enough.”

“But…I…” She closed her mouth, breathed deep a couple of times, and tried again. “I’m dressed like an extra in a zombie movie. How can you even think about…that?”

“Mouse,” River drawled his name for her. “You’ve been spending time with the wrong men.”


Special Forces soldier and medic Walter River would give anything to snatch more than a few seconds of down time to see if he can rattle the no-nonsense and incredibly hot Dr. Lloyd he’s protecting, but dodging explosions, snipers, and student radicals who’ve unleashed a lethal bio-engineered microorganism have made that almost impossible. Maybe he’ll get a chance—if he can figure out how to keep them both alive.

CDC microbiologist Ava Lloyd races to find a cure for a bio-terrorism organism sweeping El Paso. The few stolen moments with her very hunky bodyguard River have been explosive, but no matter how alluring he is, she can’t afford to get distracted. The clock is ticking, people are dying by the hundreds, and once this crisis is solved, they’ll both be off on their next assignment, thousands of miles apart.






Julie Rowe’s first career as a medical lab technologist in Canada took her to the North West Territories and northern Alberta, where she still resides. She loves to include medical details in her romance novels, but admits she’ll never be able to write about all her medical experiences because, “No one would believe them!”. In addition to writing contemporary and historical medical romance, and fun romantic suspense for Entangled Publishing and Carina Press, Julie has short stories in Fool’s Gold, the Mammoth Book of ER Romance, Timeless Keepsakes and Timeless Escapes anthologies. Her book SAVING THE RIFLEMAN (book #1 WAR GIRLS) won the Novella category of the Gayle Wilson Award of Excellence.
