Book #5 – Alpha Ops Series
Publisher: Grand Central Publishing
It was supposed to be the happiest day of her life. But when her wedding erupts in gunfire, Sadie Walker realizes this is not the life she wants – her fiancé’s work with Delta Force will always cast a shadow over their relationship. After leaving the hard-muscled hero at the altar, she thinks she’ll never see him again . . . until a chance encounter reveals that he still has a strong grip on her heart.
On a covert assignment overseas, Simon Tennant is shocked when he spots Sadie with another man. Jealousy flares, as does an irresistible urge to keep her protected. Amid a dangerous game of international espionage, he’ll have to convince Sadie just how perfect they’ve always been together. This time, nothing will take precedence over winning her back, no matter the cost to his cover – or his life . . .
“Look, sweetheart, every CIA field officer rookie thinks they have a lead on some terrorist. Every single one. You’re all fresh off the Farm, eager to make a difference, but ninety-nine percent of the time, you’re just plain reaching.” Director Lassiter bit down on the end of an unlit cigar, then made a face and pulled some tobacco from his mouth and grunted. “If these are Cubans, I’m fucking Fidel Castro.”
Sadie Walker took a breath and wished she wasn’t still wearing her Hello Kitty T-shirt. Nothing like a tiny pink T to infer gravitas and trustworthiness. “Sir, I’m not reaching. I’ve been talking to a man who is part of the security team at the hotel where the president will be staying, and—”
“Ms. Walker. You’re here as a favor to your father. Don’t make me regret that. By the way, is he coming over to visit? I have a few things I want to show him.” For the first time that day he looked positively alert and eager.
Damn him. Damn her father, and damn the CIA.

Coming soon… the conclusion to the Alpha Ops series – May 3, 2016
He is a trained professional—but nothing can prepare him for the hottest mission of his life. Assigned to protect his boss’s daughter, British former SAS operative Malone Garrett breaks the first rule of covert surveillance—don’t make contact. And especially don’t take your mark out to dinner, then agree to a rooftop quickie. But now that Mal has Abby in his arms, he has no intention of ever letting her go.
Abby Baston told herself it was a hit and quit, a one-nighter with a hot, handsome stranger whose hands were trained to take action. Working undercover for the CIA, she can’t risk anything more. But when an international crisis ignites, Abby must make a call: trust Mal with her secret—and her heart—and partner up, or lose everything in a split second . . .
