“Life is not meant to be easy. It’s a challenge you have to rise to every single day. We’ve all got demons inside us. We’ve all got secrets that could drag us down into an abyss.”
Infiltrating the enemy has never been a problem for Charlie Downes. She’s spent the past ten years pretending to be someone she’s not, all in the name of crown and country. New Zealand may be a small South Pacific nation, but there is nothing trifling about its security taskforce. And her employer, despite being a shadow dwelling organisation, takes security of its state very seriously.
But her latest assignment on home soil is set to be her most challenging. Pitted against a private security firm with skills – and operatives – both unexpected and surprising, Charlie finds out more than she bargained for. And the truth will indeed enlighten. But can she remain emotionless when the hunter becomes the prey? And can she ignore how being hunted makes her feel?
Because the moment she lays eyes on Adam Savill everything changes. Her assignment. Her objectives. Her entire world. And if Adam has his way, Charlie will be changed forever.
