No guts, no glory

Lieutenant Ellison Quade III. Tough guy. He played by the rules once. Never again.

Hallie Stockton. Tough girl. Her grandfather the Admiral taught her that winning is all that matters.

But now that she has escaped to Los Angeles from the Admiral's fortress in Middleburg, Virginia, Hallie has no intention of ever going back. She's determined to live her life her way.

Six years ago, the Admiral double-crossed Quade and had him court-martialed. Now the Admiral needs him to bring his runaway granddaughter home -- before the mercenary known as Conan finds Hallie and uses her as bait to draw him out of his fortress to settle an old score.

Hallie has no intention of cooperating and losing her hard-won freedom. Even for a dark-haired hunk with a hey-baby smile. Hallie's brass and her sass are tempting, but Quade doesn't intend to lose the pardon the Admiral has promised him -- or his life.

Even with help from Arnie Stockton, Hallie's father, a former naval commander with his own score to settle with the Admiral, Conan captures Hallie and Quade and delivers them to his employer. A beautiful and maniacal Eurasian revolutionary, the Admiral's former lover, who leaves them trapped on an island surrounded by sharks and planted with high-explosive bombs.

The only thing more dangerous for Hallie and Quade than trying to outfox Conan and find a way off Shark Island before the bombs detonate at midnight, is keeping their hands off each other...and learning to trust their hearts.
