TORN BETWEEN DUTY AND DESIRE
Covert operations expert Nash Brennon has spent the last eight years trying to forget Annie Gallagher, his former field partner and the only woman he ever loved. Annie betrayed him when he needed her most, then vanished without a trace. Now suddenly she’s back in the game – this time as a suspected traitor and threat to national security.
Annie’s son has been kidnapped by political terrorists. The price for his life? Assassinate a UN ambassador. When Nash and his group find her, the smoldering passion between Annie and the man she swore she’d never contact again blazes out of control. But can Nash trust her? The stakes couldn?t be higher: Their enemy’s endgame is personal, and one false move could cost them their lives.

This book opens with a bang and then never lets up. And I mean that in a good way. Our heroine, Annie Gallagher thinks she has safely left her old life behind for quiet living in the mountains of Colorado. She also thinks she has left her old love behind.
But her past finds her! Her son is kidnapped and unless she kills a high ranking US diplomat her son will be killed!
Her former colleagues – and especially her former partner and love – think Annie deserted. But did she? They have the best technology around so they know she has been hired for the hit but they don’t know why. They don’t even know she has a son.
Sparks and bullets (!) fly when Annie and her former partner (in all things) Nash meet again. Can he trust her? Can she trust him? They each thing the other failed them – why?
Ha! I’M not going to tell you – you’ll have to read the book! I will tell you that I thoroughly enjoyed this book from start to finish. Just when I thought things were settled – PING! – another bullet would go flying by. Or another explosion. The characters were fun and the bad guys were B.A.D.! Not a read for right before bed though – waaaaay too much action going on. I can’t wait for the next book in the series. These are characters you want to stay with.
