Harper Monroe has simple goals- work her day job, pay her debts and finish culinary school. But life rarely goes as planned. When two lunatics spouting off weird phrases attempt to kidnap her, Harper’s world turns upside down.
All bartender Scott Jackson wants after work is his couch, a Longhorn game and a cold beer. Instead, he interrupts a kidnapping and ends up in the ER. Once he’s treated, curiosity sends him in search of the woman he saved.
Harper has lost her hearing, but has no other medical problems to keep her in the hospital. When she is released, Scott’s conscience demands he continue his role as protector. Unfortunately, doing so puts both their lives in danger.
As Harper and Scott spend time together, Harper’s hearing returns. Only now she can hear everything. All Harper wants to do is go back to her simple life, but she knows she must focus first on why someone wants to kidnap her. Scott agrees and takes her to visit to a good friend who runs a security business. While there, they unravel details of The Protector Cell, a secret society of men and women with superpowers. Even more unnerving is learning Harper is a member of this society.
Unfortunately, The Collectors, the group of people hunting the Protectors, make Harper their number one target. They drag her and Scott down a dangerous path where Harper will have to choose: deny her frightening future or use her new skills to save the man she’s grown to love.
