She was only supposed to be a Target—not become my everything.
I’m an Unwanted Soldier—an elite group of former soldiers which takes missions no one can complete, no matter the amount of money offered. I handle specific targets—the impossible ones.
Coming home from a mission in the desert, all I want is sleep. A visitor derails that plan with a file and a new mission: rescue Lauren Johnson from the abusive Presidential Candidate/US Senator Jared Richardson.
Lauren’s gray eyes got to me, left me powerless to turn it down. I only take the most remote and dangerous jobs. This one might have the biggest stakes of all—my heart.
I could be the next First Lady! But as the campaign heats up, my fiancé, US Senator Jared Richardson, is under more stress, and he lashes out at me. His staff looks the other way. I can’t just leave. My face is everywhere. My family and friends have all been pushed away. And Jared won’t let me go, even if I no longer want this.
My new bodyguard, Trick, protected me from Jared, despite the danger to himself from Jared’s henchmen. I’m not certain why he’s on my side, but he’s the only one I have, and I trust him. He helps me remember how things are supposed to be, and what I want from life. He makes me want so much more. If he’s willing to take these risks, surely I can have the courage to leave Jared and move on.
If only Trick will move on with me…
