After witnessing her friend’s sexual assault, seven year senior, Magdalena Wells escapes an attack with a few bruises and a thousand questions. As a journalist in practice, if not in pay, Mags vows to utilize the skills she mastered in the Democratic Republic of Congo and answer every single one, just as soon as she gets the hell out of town.
Law Pierce’s aim is rest and relaxation after two years undercover in South Africa on an extended Base Branch mission, but restlessness puts him in trouble’s path. As a servant of justice, Law will do everything in his power to keep trouble safe. The fact that trouble’s petite stature and luscious curves stir his every primal instinct is a massive inconvenience he struggles to ignore.
Together Magdalena and Law uncover a web of corruption and dirty lies that could set their country’s top official ablaze, if the inferno doesn’t consume them first.
about Megan || Megan was born and raised among the live oaks and shrimp boats of the Mississippi Gulf Coast, where her enormous family still calls home. She attended college at the University of Southern Mississippi where she received a bachelor's degree in curriculum, instruction, and special education. For several years Megan worked as a teacher in Mississippi. She married and moved to South Carolina and worked for an international non-profit organization as an instructor and co-director.
Baine and Sloan leave, leaving the McCord house and estate to Law – regardless, it is the place Law stays when they’re not on missions, but he does have a flat of his own. Content to be in the big estate by his lonesome, he does not expect Baine’s ‘sister’ to come barreling into the house. Here he thought he’d get quiet to calm his mind, and instead he gets the one person he has successfully avoided since becoming friends with Baine -- and she brings a couple bad guys in her wake.
Baine had stomped all over the line that governed Law's existence. He'd tortured evil men to obtain the information he'd needed to complete the task. Uncomfortable thoguh he'd been with the scenario, Law stood by his friend's side because the good outweighed the bad. But when Baine had been unable to break one cartel leader through hours of inventive torment, he'd requested the man's young daughter. Law couldn't belive his friend would have hurt the girl, and there was no way in fuck he'd have let that happen anyway. But the simple truth that Bain was desperate, willing to push the boundaries even further to get what he'd wanted, even if it'd been a noble cause, was more than Law could bear.
Apparently the man had a problem with clothing. He rose from the beastly machine, showcasing the most adulterating display of masculinity she’d ever seen in real life.In just 24 short hours, they go from strangers (granted, have to give the man credit, Law has been lusting after Mags for quite some time) to serious kissing buddies.
As they go through the motions of taking down a pretty significant sex ring, they (of course) fall for one another -- but again, Law was already half there, silly man.
While I loved Baine and his promises to Sloan, Law, with his dark moods and honest words, stole my heart. He swears to Mags he'll never abandon her, and he loves her as she is -- nosey journalist, quirky mind, freckled face, foul mouth, and all.
