Book Description


A young woman in the wrong place. An ex-soldier determined to finish the mission. Passions ignite between the two as they flee from assassins and traitors in a race against time.

Sample Chapter

“You know how to use one of these?”

TJ pulled the handgun from its holster. Oh yeah. Trevian Jane McKendrick, daughter of Staff Sergeant William McKendrick, definitely knew how to handle one of these. Her father, a two-time Olympic marksman had taught her well. “Sig Sauer P226.” TJ pulled the slide back and checked the chamber. “Full magazine.” She looked up. “Nine millimeter?”

The pilot cocked one eyebrow, his tight-lipped expression softening to an almost-smile. He nodded. “Yeah. If you have to use it, point the bad end at the biggest part of whatever’s coming your way.” He held up a plastic bottle and a small box before stuffing both in her backpack. “Water and extra ammo.”

The gun gave her a smidgeon of hope, but couldn’t dispel the bleakness of her situation. Paper targets didn’t match up with flesh and blood. Sure, she could hit a bull’s-eye most every time, but could she knowingly point the gun at a man and pull the trigger?

Rochester’s expression grew intense. “Another thing.” He unstrapped a leather band from his wrist and reached for her left hand. “This is a transmitter. It broadcasts a signal we can track. Do not take it off. Not for a minute.” He shoved her shirt sleeve up and cinched the band tight around her wrist. “I won’t be able to land on the other side of the river. You’ll have to drop from the skid. Stay in the verge of the jungle, out of sight. Don’t fire your weapon except as a last resort. Sound carries out here. Follow the river while you can see. Head east and be quiet. Do you understand?”

She nodded at his rapid-fire orders. “Got it.”

Rochester was way more than the wastrel he portrayed. She hooked the gun holster around her waist. The belt rode low on her hips, pulled down by the weight of the gun. She’d have to stuff the holster inside the waistband of her cargo pants to keep it from flapping while she ran.

“Do whatever necessary to stay alive, Ms. McKendrick. I will come for you.”

TJ frowned at the force of those softly uttered words, at the fire in his eyes. He meant it. Good. She needed something to believe in. With a pat on the gun at her side TJ said, “I like my odds a little better now, Mr. Rochester. Thanks.”

“Let’s go.” Rochester nodded toward the helicopter. “Sit on the front left skid and grab hold of the strut.”

TJ grinned and saluted, wanting to ease his concern. “Gracias, Mr. Rochester. Take good care of my girls for me.”
