Description: When Gabe Callan left the FBI to start his own security business, he thought he knew who he was and where he was headed. Turned out he didn't know himself at all. Fortunately, his wife (now ex) forgave him. Together they run Callan Securities, and in the little free time Gabe has, well, one-night stands are good enough.
Then Nathan Graves walks in.
Nathan is a philanthropist and entrepreneur. He's not a saint. As soon as he meets Gabe, he knows he wants more than just protection from the man. But they're going to have two weeks in Rio to get to know each other better. A whole lot better, if Nathan has anything to say about it.
Except nothing ever goes to plan, and the two end up being chased through the slums of one of the most glamorous cities on Earth, hiding from drug lords in the very shacks and hovels Nathan had come to replace. Getting to know each other better will have to take a back seat to getting home alive...

"Keep thinking so hard and you're going to get grooves in your forehead," Nathan said without opening his eyes.
So much for subtlety. "You're supposed to be asleep."
"No, you're supposed to be asleep. I'm supposed to be reading." Nathan cracked one eye open. "What are you so afraid of?"
"It's not fear; it's professionalism."
Nathan snorted. "This is new for you, isn't it?"
Gabe was grateful when Nathan closed his eye again. "About a year-and-a-half."
"Jeannie took it well."
"Jeannie was a fucking saint."
"Jeannie's also got balls." The corners of his mouth lifted. "If she were my type, she'd probably be where you are now."
"You could do worse."
"So why isn't she? Where you are now, I mean."
"She had enough of fieldwork in the agency. She prefers working with people rather than strategies. And she's a she, and we all agreed that's not the best choice for where we're going."
Now both eyes were open and fixed on him. "Is that all I am to you then, Gabe? A strategy?"
"It's what you hired me for."
"Fair enough." Nathan turned his attention back to his book.
Gabe waited. "That's it?"
"You're not interested in anything beyond business. I get that."
"Hey, now, I never said I wasn't--" Gabe caught himself, but it was already too late. It appeared Nathan was every bit as skilled as Jeannie at getting Gabe to play into his hand. That didn't bode well at all.
Nathan grinned. "Now we're getting somewhere."
