Recalled for a secret task, former U.S. Army Ranger Staff Sergeant Adrian Reilly must bring the CIA definitive proof that its deputy director of National Clandestine Services, Charlie O'Donnell, is the master manipulator behind the deaths of covert operatives and agents and Reilly’s brothers in arms. Reilly’s motivation is simple: to clear his name for being wrongfully discharged and avenge the deaths of both his best friend and the CIA Special Agent who warned him that O’Donnell was an enemy from within. But O’Donnell’s web of deceit and lies is spun with devils and innocents, including Trent Mariner, a rouge sniper Reilly believed dead and Daniella St. Sauveur, the daughter of the agent who warned him about O’Donnell.
When Dani discovers she’s been used as a pawn in O’Donnell’s murderous games, she must summon the strength of warriors twice her size in order to survive the betrayal and the ache for a man with a player reputation and a laser-focus only his mission.
Reilly’s strength and resolve are tested and his ability to battle any contingency cannot fully prepare him for the depth of O’Donnell’s conspiracies and what Mariner has planned. More than his military expertise, Reilly will need faith, hope, and a special woman’s unwavering love in order to stop a madman’s vengeful quest to destroy them all.
I’m a Jersey girl through and through having grown up in the northwest corner of the state where green valleys are tucked between mountain ranges and livestock and crops rule instead of concrete and stop lights (we do have them, of course). But make no mistake, my favorite place is the Jersey shore. Nothing beats its sun-drenched beaches, rolling surf and found-no-where-else-in-the-world boardwalk where the sizzle of grilled Italian sausage and pepper sandwiches tries to drown out the pinging bells from games of chance.
When I’m not writing, I like to garden and decorate (I have a lapsed Certified Interior Decorator certificate) and go to spin class where my butt is viciously kicked three times a week by my unrelenting German girlfriend. I am a dark chocolate addict (who isn’t) and a fan of classic/hard rock (from Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and Aerosmith to Breaking Benjamin, Five Finger Death Punch and Shinedown). I’m obsessed with the movies Young Frankenstein, The Blues Brothers and The Princess Bride (which says a lot about my sense of humor) and anything starring the late Paul Walker. When the New York Rangers aren’t playing hockey, I like to watch NCIS, Suits, and Supernatural and while I can and do cook and bake (I am Italian after all), I am extremely messy and have decided, at this point in my life, that it’s entirely overrated. Thank goodness my husband isn’t fussy and our nest is empty. We now take turns caring for the three cats our children have left behind.
