From the ashes, there's life!

“Challenge accepted!” were the last words she expected him to utter, and now it’s a race to see who will back down first.

Dani Whittaker has turned in her Washington D.C. insider badge, leaving behind the backstabbing ways and seedy politicians. When a friendly favor ends with the one man she can’t have making her body sing in ways she hates to adore, D.C. isn’t the only thing she needs to escape.

Navy SEAL, Nash Wellesley, is all about honoring a promise to his dead brother, so accepting a challenge from the long-legged force of nature tempting him isn’t in the cards. Not if he wants to keep his only remaining friend and stick to the code he grew up on.

But retreat is impossible after Dani’s new job puts her in the headlights of a fanatic, and Nash is called upon to protect her.

When the chase ends, will they be left in irreparable pieces or will they emerge from the ashes together?

Author’s Note: This broody, honor-bound SEAL and confident, daring heroine just might make you laugh, tear your heart out, and slowly combust. Are you ready for it?

  • “I’ve read all of Ms. Evan’s books. She brings her characters to life on the page. Her writing is vibrant and full of emotion. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend any of them because her stories are more than just romance, they are life with all of its ups and downs, decisions and risks and that glorious hope that happily-ever-after does exist. Forged by Sacrifice is no different.” Goodreads Reviewer
