The Counterterrorist Taskforce Team sends Special Agent Tobias Burke undercover into a West Virginia militia led by Captain Dylan Connelly. Dylan’s reputation and her psychological profile mark her as an extremist, likely responsible for the murder of the Secretary of Defense. Tasked with charming Dylan into revealing her secrets, Tobias is surprised by his immediate attraction to the dangerous and lovely Dylan. Yet, as their attraction gains momentum, flaring into passion and deepening into friendship, it dawns on him that Dylan is being framed.
As the evidence mounts against her, his instincts—and then his heart—cry out that Dylan is innocent. With her militia locked in a stand-off with the FBI and a nation watching the drama unfold on television, Tobias and his Taskforce Team pit themselves against the FBI to find the real killer and to clear Dylan’s name.
