Kidnapped by the commando!
When Elizabeth Lancaster is abducted from a nature commune, she's terrified for her life. She hadn't expected her cover to be blown so quickly. But who is this huge, rock-solid guy who spirits her away to a secluded estate in the mountains? When she discovers the identity of her kidnapper, one thought burns through her outrage and frustration: What is the commando going to do to me?
Caleb Trent's special-forces training didn't prepare him for life with his beautiful captive. She's more resourceful than he anticipated, always managing to stay one step ahead of him, and far too alluring for his peace of mind. Still, he's determined not to let down his guard. She might be a lying conniver, but he's duty-bound to see this mission through to the end.
Going Commando was a finalist in Romance Writers of America's RITA Awards and winner of the Heart of the West National Writing Contest! Originally published as A Hard-hearted Hero.

About the Author
Pamela Burford comes from a funny family. You may take that any way you want. She was raised in a household that valued laughter above all, so of course the first thing she looked for in a husband was a sense of humor. Is it any wonder their grown kids are into stand-up comedy and improv?
It should come as no surprise that everything Pamela writes is infused with her own quirky brand of humor, from her feel-good contemporary romance and romantic suspense novels to her popular Jane Delaney mystery series, featuring snarky “Death Diva” Jane, her canine sidekick Sexy Beast, and a fun love-triangle subplot. Pamela's own beloved poodle, Murray, wants you to know that any similarities between himself and neurotic, high-strung Sexy Beast are purely coincidental.
