A man of honor.
A man of war.
Ares will battle for his country and for those he loves.

They don’t call me “Ares” for nothing. I fight like hell for what I believe in, and I believe in fighting for what’s right. I will take down any enemy who threatens the good of our country—or any country. Human lives need to be protected and I’ll be damned if I sit by and watch anyone hurt another.

When I encounter Margeaux, I know immediately she’s far from my “Nemesis.” Together, we’re going to destroy the enemy—we’re going to win this war. And when it’s over, we’ll get lost in each other’s arms.

A man of strength
A man of danger.
Cayman will destroy anyone threatening his world.

I take my job seriously. I’m strong. Hard as nails. Nothing hurts me, and I refuse to let anyone hurt those I love.

As the new commander of the UK Task Force on Human Trafficking, I have important work to do, and innocent lives to protect. There’s no time for mistakes or distractions. 

But when I encounter the beautiful and damaged Bexli, I’ll move mountains to keep her safe. After the hell she’s endured, she needs my strong exterior more than anything. For the first time, my hard shell just may soften with her touch.


A man of invulnerability.
A man of unfaltering power.
Poseidon is a force of nature, protecting all who need him.

With a name like “Poseidon,” I’m feared on the spot. I come in like a force of nature, and destroy anyone who challenges me or hurts those I love. In my country, loyalty and rage runs deep.

Asking Kima to join my team was a risk. She’s both bellissima and brillante, with a fiery passion and a commitment, like mine, to save the world. 

My machismo makes me want to help and protect her. Her pride makes her resist. But if the filthy traffickers target her, my reign of terror will annihilate every one of them. Kima’s life and heart are in my hands now, and nobody is going to threaten that.


A man of silence.
A man of rigid precision.
Zeppelin is your worst nightmare, coming in quiet and wreaking havoc on his enemies.

Incredibly smart and unbelievably stealthy, I take my name “Zeppelin” seriously. As a Brit who worked for the United States NSA and NRO, I’m experienced and wise, with a penchant for technology. Traffickers can never get by me, and they never even see me coming. 

Teaming up with the intelligent and hellbent super spy Alena, has our enemies reeling with fear. They know they’re no match for us.

Once we’ve completed this perilous mission, this team isn’t done. I’ve got plans for us—together. And that’s a promise I don’t take lightly.


A man of attraction.
A man full of lure and connection.
Magnet is the brawn behind the brains—and impossible to resist.

I’m more than muscle and mastery. I’ve got more than just my head in the game. These people need me for protection, sanctuary, and I’m not going to lie, for retaliation and redemption too.

But there’s something about this particular “suspect,” that has me on high alert. Suspicious? Maybe. Sexy? Definitely. If I have to take her down, I will. Something tells me, though, there’s more to her than meets the eye—and I’m going to get to the bottom of it. 

If there’s one thing I know, it’s power and attraction. This is one connection we’ll never relinquish.
