The Book

 

The Tease

 

Kane gazed at the woman again. She was attractive. Well, probably. Once the swelling eased and the bruises faded he’d be able to make a better assessment. She didn’t look dangerous though. Probably the jaw, too soft and delicate. But D was rarely wrong. The guy had a sixth sense about people.

He walked over and sat down at the edge of the bed. He didn’t like this. What the hell had gone down in that prison tonight? The screams, the male body being lugged out. What had this woman gotten herself into?

A soft whimper.

Kane went on alert. He watched as the redhead stirred, her eyelids fluttering. With a sigh, he touched her cheek. Immediately, he withdrew his hand. Touching her felt . . . wrong. Or maybe it wasn’t the contact itself, but the way he’d done it. Tenderly. Fuck. What was that about? He couldn’t remember the last time he’d touched a woman with tenderness.

“Hey,” he said gruffly. “Wake up.”

No response.

He leaned closer.

The next thing he knew, he was caught in a headlock and a lethal little hand was gripping his neck. “Touch me again and I’ll break your neck,” came the hoarse mumble.

He was momentarily stunned. Christ, this woman was strong. But injured, which made it relatively easy to push out of her grasp.

Rubbing the back of his neck, Kane frowned. “Threaten me again and I’ll break yours.”

His warning fell on deaf ears. Whatever strength she’d managed to will up had promptly fizzled. She was unconscious again.

The Blurb

 

 Dangerous. Ruthless. Savage.
And she’s the good guy.

Abby Sinclair had a desperate childhood until she was rescued and adopted by a retired army ranger who molded her into a master of self-defense. Now, she’s a cunning and fearless assassin thrust into assignment after dangerous assignment, using everything she has—nerve, resilience, strength, sex—to come out on top. Her only rule: never trust anyone.

Abby’s latest assignment is in Columbia: go undercover and snuff out a dangerous arms dealer active in the underground sex trade. But when Abby purposely blows her cover in a last-ditch attempt to free the helpless victims, deadly mercenary Kane Woodland is recruited as back-up. His mission: get Abby out of that hell hole.

The last thing Kane expects is to feel primal attraction for Abby. But when she convinces him to join her on her perilous mission, their newfound passion could put the lives of their whole team at risk.
