About BOUND TO DANGER
At a benefit dinner, community activist Maria Cervantes overhears two men plotting a terrorist attack that could rock Miami to its core. But before she can alert authorities, she’s almost killed in a massive explosion—and wakes up in a hospital with no memory of what happened. As the sole survivor of the attack, she is now a person of interest to the NSA—and especially to Agent Cade O’Reilly. Because Maria is the one woman Cade has never been able to forget.
Years ago, they were closer than either was willing to admit—until Cade disappeared when Maria needed him most. Now he’s sticking by her, whether she likes it or not. Because the memories locked inside her mind could hold vital clues to the next attack. Because terrorists want her dead—and because he never wants to let her go again.

I've got to tell someone. Find a phone. Like, yesterday. Urgency bombarded Maria as she raced over the grass and across the expansive property. Why wasn't anyone here? Where were the guards?
She couldn't go back through the house or else they might see her.
Even thinking of those men's words terrified her. The Freedom Tower. Lord, it sounded as if they wanted to target places all over Miami. But why? Okay, she didn't care why. She just wanted to stop them.
Beneath her the earth began to rumble. Fire and destruction burst through the night sky....
“Maria . . . Maria.”
Opening her eyes, Maria realized Cade was staring down at her, his handsome face a mask of concern.
Light from the adjacent bathroom streamed in, giving her enough illumination to make out her surroundings.
His hand was on her shoulder and he’d been lightly shaking her. She glanced down and realized her sheet was pulled over her breasts, covering her. She blinked, trying to orient herself from the nightmare. Sweat dotted her upper lip, and her palms were damp. She wiped at her face as she tried to will her racing heart to slow down. “The Freedom Tower.”
“What?” His piercing eyes narrowed a fraction. “Are you okay?”
They had to do something. “Someone is going to bomb the Freedom Tower. I don’t know when or . . . anything else. I just know they are.” It scared her that she didn’t know how she possessed that knowledge or who was behind it, but she had no doubt that something was going to happen there if she didn’t stop it.
Cade looked torn for a moment as he stood, but he remained at the edge of the bed. “You’re sure?”
She nodded. “I dreamed about the explosion. Well, before it. Most of that night is still a blank, but I remember that.”
“Do you know who?”
Fury surged through her at the unknown men. Why couldn’t she remember more? “No.”
“Give me a second.” He disappeared from her room but returned five minutes later, still looking tense. “I’ve informed my boss. Someone’s going to look into it. They’re also following up on a lead—the one you gave them about Clay Ervin. Looks like you might have been right.”
Before she could ask who the man was, Cade shook his head. “I don’t know more than that and the truth is, I might not be able to tell you more even when I do have details.”
That pissed her off, but she actually understood. She wanted to help as much as she could, but she also knew they had national security to worry about. Her own curiosity didn’t matter when weighed against finding the terrorists behind the bombing and apparent new murder. “I get it,” she murmured.
Cade stood there for a long moment, watching her, as if unsure whether he should go or not. Wearing plain black boxers and nothing else, the man looked delicious. Not that she should be noticing him like that. Especially not now.
