GENRE: Romantic Suspense
SHE LEFT HIM ONCE.
LOST Agent Ana Young was only fourteen when she was abducted by a madman, but unlike many kidnapping victims, she did go home. Now, her mission is to find the missing. But her new case has her on the hunt for the escaped convict who’s obsessed with her. And Ana has an unlikely partner-the sexy, supposedly-by-the-book FBI Agent she had one amazing night with and had to forget.
NOW HE HAS TO PROTECT HER 24/7…
FBI Special Agent Cash Knox knows that Ana, the petite, tough-ass former bounty hunter, can get the job done again. But this time, someone else leads them to “Bernie-the-Butcher,” someone who’s been watching Ana. Waiting for her.
FROM A CRAZED KILLER.
Now, catching a deranged murderer means Ana must trust her guarded heart to the gorgeous, complicated G-man she wasn’t supposed to fall for.
“Ana?” A hard hand closed over her shoulder. Ana jerked at the touch, and the dream—more like twisted memory—vanished in an instant. She jumped to her feet, whirling around, and Ana found her boss, Gabe Spencer, frowning at her.
Way to make a killer impression on the big boss, Ana.
She shoved back her hair, lifted her chin, and straightened her spine. Not that straightening her spine did much. When you were all of five feet, two inches, it was often hard to look intimidating. She wasn’t the kind of woman who wore high heels—they just slowed her down when she was chasing criminals—so Ana had long grown accustomed to tipping back her chin and staring at the world with her go-to-hell gaze.
Only it wasn’t exactly appropriate to use that gaze on the big boss.
Like it’s appropriate to be caught sleeping at the office by him.
Ana cleared her throat. “Hi, Gabe. I was . . . brainstorming on the new case.” She smiled at him. The smile was one of her secret weapons. Slow and disarming, that smile had saved her ass more times than she could count. In her line of work, some people erroneously thought that looking delicate was a weakness. Not so . . . Ana used her deceptively delicate appearance every single chance that she had.
But Gabe—former SEAL and now big, bad man in charge of LOST—well, he didn’t exactly look disarmed. His bright blue stare swept over her, and a faint furrow appeared between his brows. “Did you pull another all-nighter?”
“Ana . . .” He sighed out her name. “I hired you because I know you’re good. Your track record speaks for itself. You don’t have to burn yourself out because you’re trying to tear through the old case files at LOST in order to prove something to me.”
Gabe was a good guy. He wasn’t chewing her ass out for the on-the-job nap. He understood exactly what she’d been doing.
So Ana let her guard drop, just a bit, with him. After all, she’d known Gabe for years. They’d been friends long before she’d finally let him lure her into joining the LOST team. Gabe knew her secrets. Well, most of them. There were some secrets that even Ana’s twin brother, Asher, didn’t know.
And I plan to keep things that way.
