Publisher's Summary

In the dark world of a Guardian Shadow, an axiom exists: “Don’t. Get. Caught." 

His code name was Tempest, and his enemy caught him.  

Stratus did unspeakable things to him until, out of his mind, he prayed for death — but he’d never broken faith with his brothers. God, how he wished they knew that. He had not compromised them. He’d told Stratus nothing. Cast aside as useless, left to starve or die of his injuries, his broken body lay in a bare cell, forgotten, and Tempest knew his prayer for the end would be answered shortly. 

Until her. She made him want to live — if only to help her escape. 

Not all devils are male. The worst are female. Pilar had lived with one every day of her life — a woman who made a mockery of the word “mother”. When the woman couldn’t manipulate or intimidate her into doing as she wished, she threw Pilar into a cell with a man — or what was left of a man — admonishing her to, “see what happens to people who don’t give me what I want”. At the sight of his broken body, a fierce desire to provide solace and comfort trumped any sort of fear her mother thought to provoke — and an unshakeable bond was formed. As laughable as it seemed at the time, they each vowed to help the other escape. 

His fellow Shadow rescued Tempest. Pilar knew he’d return for her if he lived. For 33 months, 12 days, five hours, and 43 minutes, she faithfully monitored a hidden dropbox for his message. She almost missed it, and then she doubted her eyes. 

“I’m coming for you.”

best book ever

Chris Michaels you're the bomb this was the most exciting book of all except for Fury I still love Fury. it was a great plot line and I loved seeing all our favourite characters coming together again I had such a smile on my face and the way you have introduced smoke into the fold is interesting and the way you have left the door open for more military Black Ops work because of how the women started events that will just keep going. I loved the twist that was totally unexpected from the heroine and Matt Haynes what can I say about you. as usual you have nailed, yet another book from this series ...looking fwd to the rest but they are not out yet.
a brilliant suspense HEA with more military than romance. just loved see all my faves reappear.... Ms Michael's you have your research and writing style in spades.
thank you thank you thank you for giving me so many hours of pleasure listening and thank you thank you thank you to Matt Haynes that has a perfect voice for these types of books with awesome inflections.
so looking forward to smoke a few little surprises there methinks ?!

Tempest does what it takes.

Pilar learns just how truly evil her mother is when she meets Tempest in an underground prison and she is so deeply moved she does everything in her power to save him. During this disturbing situation Tempest has a connection with Pilar. He vows to come back and rescue her. Pilar helps him escape and is never found out..So their Journey begins. His drive and determination and Pilar’s help combine to bring down the Fates.
Matt Haynes does a great job with the many voices. I loved his ability to change back and forth with different and distinctive characters. Love this author’s ability to have those little surprises throughout the story. Just well done!
