The Last Chance bar was Veronica Lane's last hope. Desperate to find her missing brother, the sheltered computer programmer turned to Jasper Adams--the man she'd been warned to stay far away from. Veronica knew she was putting her life into the hands of the former Army Ranger, who aroused desire she had to resist at all costs.
Posing as a ruthless mercenary was a cover for what Jasper was really doing: hunting a killer. And Veronica was in the line of fire. The soldier-turned-elite-ops-agent knew he was playing a dangerous game--trying to win her trust while deceiving her about his true mission. What would happen once Veronica discovered that everything about him was a lie...everything except his passion for her?
Veronica Lane’s brother Cale is missing. The problem is that no one believes her.
Ironically Veronica’s last chance is at the Last Chance Bar. His name is Jasper Adams and he’s a mercenary who says he’ll help. What Veronica doesn’t know is Jasper really believes Cale is responsible for the deaths of his friends and fellow Shadow Agents.
Under the pretense of helping her find out where Cale is, Jasper really does want to find him, but he wants to bring him in to the EOD (Elite Operations Division). But staying close to Veronica has its other dangers. Jasper wants his buddy’s little sister. Bad. And it seems Veronica wants Jasper right back. How can Jasper be with her, when he’s lying about the reasons he’s with her?
Finding Cale isn’t the only priority for Jasper, at least not once he realizes Veronica’s life may be in danger as well. Once Jasper realizes that Veronica may have been right all along, that Cale isn’t the bad guy here, his mission becomes that much more complicated. With danger coming at them from every angle, how can they have a relationship?
The suspense kept me on the edge of my seat, and the romance was plenty hot. If you enjoy a good Romantic Suspense, then this Shadow Agents series is for you! Cynthia Eden has become my go-to author for Romantic Suspense. Whether it’s Paranormal or not, you can’t find a better romantic suspense author.
