Navy SEAL Lt. Mitch Thoreau’s vacation to Spain coincides with Catalonia’s bid for independence. On the streets of Barcelona, the tension between the separatists and the national police suggests imminent unrest—not the best time for a vacation. Meeting the proprietress of Hotel Leonardo makes it all worthwhile. Katrina Ferrer is beautiful, idealistic, and everything Mitch desires in a woman. She also carries a terrible secret—one that threatens innocent lives and thrusts Mitch into danger. Arousing suspicion on one side and resentment on the other, both Mitch and Katrina must flee Barcelona or face unwanted consequences. As they talk of a future together, vengeance overtakes them in the medieval city of Seville. Will Mitch’s training be enough to ensure Katrina’s safety, or is happily-ever-after too much to hope for in a world coming apart at the seams?
