A brilliant mathematician, Noelle Blanche is determined to win the respect of the academic community but not at any price!
Desperate as she is for a grant, she refuses to accept the military's offer of help in return for hers.
Their methods go against everything she stands for...until one night of violence and death. She owes her life to a stranger named David, whose brute strength and cunning both protect and reassure her.
David Wolfe always knew his own safety was at risk but he never expected the Swarm, the men he swore to find and exterminate, would brutally torture and murder his wife. When vengeance produced no solace, he disappeared...until the Swarm reappeared with a new set of targets. Now, 4 men are dead, killed trying to decode the whereabouts of nuclear weapons hidden during the Cold War and his old team has asked for his help. But saving Noelle's life has only added to his grief for he's irresistibly drawn to her intelligence and beauty, not to mention the stubborn way she refuses to help them. Can he convince her to help them locate the arsenal before the Swarm? And can he save her life when the Swarm turns their deadly attentions towards her? Or will history repeat itself?
