The most explosively sexy One-Eyed Jacks adventure yet from the RITA Award-winning, New York Times bestselling romance author whose name is “synonymous with high stakes and high action” (RT Book Reviews)!
Betrayal. Retribution. Redemption?
Six years ago, tough-as-nails military contractor Bobby Taggart met the woman of his dreams in war-torn Kabul—a sexy, whip-smart war correspondent who approached him at a local bar, took him to bed, made him fall in love…and then mysteriously disappeared. In her wake, the terrorist leader he’d been mining for valuable intel was assassinated—then Bobby discovered his phone had been bugged. And he’s pretty damn sure he’s been played for a fool.
Now, a covert security mission for the U.S. Embassy in Oman unexpectedly reunites him with Talia Levine, the woman who betrayed him and broke his heart. And there’s one more secret she hasn’t told him—one that will change his world. But as the heat of anger mixes with a still-simmering passion, dangerous forces close in, their sights set on Talia. Trust is the only way they will survive—but with their lives in the balance, can Bobby risk trusting her again?
Gerard's fourth One-Eyed Jacks contemporary romantic thriller (after Running Blind), spun off from her popular Black Ops Inc. series, is fast-paced and satisfying. Robert Taggart, once part of a military task force, works as a civilian contractor in Afghanistan. Talia Levine is a beautiful agent for Mossad, the Israeli intelligence agency. She needs information that Taggart possesses and will use every tool in her arsenal to extract it (which she does). Six years later, when Talia faces the most desperate situation of her life, she must turn once again to Taggart, the man she seduced and betrayed. Romantic suspense veteran Gerard is at the top of her game with a determined yet vulnerable heroine and a hero with "a battle-hardened look and clear air of danger," whose sizzling attraction burns up the page from their first interaction. Their gripping story will make readers seek out Gerard's other titles.
