She’s got a broken heart...
and a fully loaded arsenal....
Ex–army ranger Jim Morgan leads a team of elite mercenaries, but eighteen years ago in Paris, he was part of a black ops unit whose mission was to hunt down a rogue operative. In order to trap the criminal, Jim seduced Noelle, the man’s daughter—a ruthless act that cost him the love of his life and turned her into a mortal enemy. Now he can’t trust her, but he still desires her. He also needs her help....
Older, wiser, and unwilling to play the fool again, Noelle runs a group of highly skilled assassins. And she’s just been offered the hit of the century: Eliminate Jim Morgan. History gives them no reason to trust each other, but with their lives in jeopardy at the hands of a common enemy, the lines between love and hate are soon blurred. Now Noelle and Jim must face the past if they want to have a future—let alone a future together.
Finally! Noel and Jim’s story!!
For fans of this series, we’ve all been dying to know what caused the tension between these two. The heartache, betrayal, and anger are all obvious throughout, but what happened?!
Wonder no more!
I won’t spoil what actually went down, because it’s not that easy. But I loved the way that this book cut no corners, and didn’t take the easy way.
As the blurb states, Noelle runs a highly elite group of assassins, and Jim runs an elite group of elite mercenaries. Every time they or their agents cross paths, sparks fly. Not just sparks, but so-hot-they’ll- burn-your-paperback-up-sparks.
So when Noelle is hired to kill Jim, even though she hates him, and seriously considers taking the job for like a second, she knows something big is going down. She calls him. And those sparks start a smoldering attraction that never really burned out.
This is an intense, sexy, burn your book up, incendiary romance. Are you seeing a pattern? This book is hot! You want this book.
