Cabe got out of the gun-for-hire business the hard way—by nearly dying. Except then his former boss calls in one last favor for one final job. The mission should be simple: get a message to a retired operative in Alaska. But it puts Cabe face-to-face with the one man he doesn’t want to see and can never forget. Not after all the secrets and lies. Not after Brax almost killed him.

Brax Hughes lived hard and retired young to a cabin in the middle of nowhere. Well, that was the plan, but before he can hang up his sniper rifle, he has one last mission: win back Kyle Cabe. Brax wants another chance, wants to come clean, but after months of lying to Cabe, he knows he could face a bullet—or worse—when they meet again. And they will meet. Brax made sure of that.

With a storm moving in and someone lurking outside the cabin, time is running out. Brax needs to talk fast and keep his weapons ready. And his best weapon is the truth.

This title is part of the Love for the Holidays: A Charity Bundle Benefiting the GLBT National Help Center collection.

My View:

Wow, this was an action-packed tale with an awesome coupling. Stranded had a lot going on and it handled it all wonderfully.

There were assassins, ex-lovers brought back together, deception, back stabbing intrigue and, of course, sex and romance.

Cabe and Brax are former mercenaries and ex-lovers who are brought back together when Cabe is hired to take a message to Brax. Their relationship didn’t exactly end well and they have a lot of issues to deal with. A lot!

The plot started off exciting right off the bat and it never let up. There is some great characterizations here and not just with Brax and Cabe.

HelenKay Dimon is a new-to-me author but I will be checking out her stuff out in the future.
