Tanner Akecheta, whose last name means "warrior" in Sioux, is an operataive in a highly skilled military group called STUD: Special Tactical Units Division. STUDs are selected from SEAL teams. They're hard, smart, dangerous warriors. Tanner, still not fully recovered from a wound he got in Afghanistan, is taking on a Lone Wolf mission. He'll be dropped into the jungle in a small, war-torn Central American country to find Alessandra Bellini Wilde, the kidnapped daughter of a four star general. Tanner expects to deal with a spoiled rich girl. What he finds instead is a strong, independent woman--and a passion so hot it threatens to consume them both.
