Award-winning author Terry Odell delivers another action adventure romance with Falcon's Prey, the eighth installment in her Blackthorne, Inc. covert ops series.
Heroes aren't fearless. They just don't let fear get in the way.
Her life is in danger…
Police officer Lexi Becker is being targeted. When her husband was murdered three years ago, Lexi moved to a small town to get away from the memories, to get away from the pain. But she can't get away from the gut feeling that a drug lord, known only as The Falcon, was responsible for her husband's death. As she quietly conducts her own investigation, it becomes clear to Lexi she could be The Falcon's next victim. Afraid her local police department has been infiltrated by The Falcon, she turns to the only man she can trust for help: her former patrol partner.
But so is her heart.
When ex-cop Marv "Fish" Frisch is assigned bodyguard duty instead of a covert ops assignment, he fears he's being punished for a failed training mission. The last assignment he expected was Lexi Becker. Now he's forced to deal with the attraction he felt when they worked together. As they go into hiding, Fish can't keep his feelings hidden from Lexi. It seems she feels the same, but danger is everywhere. Someone's bugged her house. An illegal opioid network. People dying. And an even more sinister plan is being put into action…
When Lexi is torn between hiding or coming to the aid of an orphaned child, Lexi leaves Fish's protection. Now she's on her own, a prime target for The Falcon…unless she can outsmart him.
Will Lexi survive long enough to tell Fish how she feels?
