by Veronica Forand

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Romantic Suspense

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

After his partner was murdered, Simon Dunn was done with MI6. But the cold, violent world of British intelligence never lets anyone go free. Now Simon has been blackmailed into a new job...with a beautiful new partner who's going to get them both killed.

Robotics expert Cassie Watson is a newbie field agent with as much sophistication as...well, a pacifist, vegan computer nerd. Now she's abruptly thrust into the cutthroat world of espionage with a partner who is as cold as he is brutally-and brutishly-handsome.

But when their mission is betrayed from the inside, Cassie will be forced to place her life in the hands of the one man who's anything but trustworthy...

Exclusive Excerpt:


Dane directed her to the couch and sat next to her. He pulled out his phone and placed one of his fingers over Cassie’s lips to keep her silent while he spoke to whomever he’d called.

“Greetings, my friend. I seem to have something you want.”

She could hear Simon’s voice in the background.

“Yes, she’s a beauty. Very compliant too. Apparently, someone stranded her in Hong Kong without her passport. No problem. I can assist in getting her a temporary card to travel with me. We were thinking about taking a vacation to Daecheong Island. I hear it’s very romantic.”

Simon answered at such a high volume, Cassie could understand most of his words, which involved twisting off Dane’s body parts and feeding them to wild dogs.

Dane snickered and pulled Cassie closer to him. “Here, he wants to say something you.”

“Simon?”

“What the hell do you think you’re doing? I gave you an order, and you need to follow it. Do not get on a plane.”

She should have enabled full access to the drones from a distance. Instead, she’d left herself vulnerable. That wouldn’t happen again if she could help it. “I have to. The drones are going to be stored in villagers’ huts. Innocent families will be murdered—by us. I can’t let that happen. I need access to them one more time. Please let me reprogram the drones and try to find a way to stop the massacre.”

The curse Simon roared caused her body to flinch. Dane took the phone back.

“Don’t bother, Simon. She’s quite stubborn when she has a mind to be. We’ll contact you when we arrive.” He ended the call and returned the phone to his pocket.

Cassie’s phone rang. She tried to get up to answer it, but Dane shook his head.

“Another condition is you forego contact with Simon until we arrive. I have no doubt he’ll wait for you.”

    1. I'm pretty much a chicken, Mai, although I used to love certain rollercoasters until my vestibular system put a stop to my enjoyment. I think riding in a helicopter is one of my more daring escapades...and wow, was it a blast!
