Military policewoman, Sgt. Dawna Atkinson, is trained to keep her South American embassy safe, but when a bomb is detonated out front one morning, her home unit sends her old instructor, Tay Hastings, to assist with the investigation.

Tay is the one person who can ruin all she’s worked so hard for. He’s also her one weakness, thanks to a night of shared indiscretion that still haunts her dreams.

Tay wants to tell her how he fought to take the blame for that night, and how she makes him feel, but circumstances prevent that. As the investigation heats up, they find that it’s one thing to guard the embassy, but another, much harder thing to guard their own hearts.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

Barbara Phinney really knows how to tell a story! She combines romance and suspense/mystery very deftly, and the pacing just carries you forward. This one kept me guessing all the way. Very atmospheric, too, and the details ground you wonderfully. It’s almost like being there.


I will start out by saying that the author obviously knows her stuff, having done the hard yards with research. It is rare when I don’t figure out “who’s who at the zoo” but the perpetrator’s identity fooled me this time. I shall be reading more of this author’s works.


Phinney has penned another gripping romantic suspense that kept me on the edge of my seat. Delightful, intense story. Well done!


I like books that keep you turning the pages, and Barbara Phinney gets five stars for the wonderful suspenseful pace she set in Hard Target.


Very fast paced and the story is so exciting. I am amazed at Ms Phinney’s ability to keep up that constant memento. Throughout this story the action is non stop.
