Whether a secret from the past can keep you from your future. Which will Anna choose? Her past or a future with Nick? How can she survive one to be with the other?

EXCERPT FROM HOT PURSUIT 3 By Jennifer Zane
“So, Nick”—Frank paused, waiting for Nick to look at him—“this took balls…guts coming here like this.” He waved his hand in the air. “Your plan, it’s pretty big. Enlisting me to help, even bigger. You could’ve just bought two tickets to Paris to avoid the hit man Monday. Instead, you come up with this scheme so Moretti’s off both your backs. Permanently. The way I figure it, you’re either in love with Anna or you’re a cop.”
Nick froze. I froze. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw Carrie whip her head around to look at her brother.
Nick pivoted his body to face me, his back to Frank. He looked at me with his dark eyes, searched my face. His lip curved up, his dimple appearing. “You’re right, Mr. Carmichael.” Nick’s gaze dropped to my mouth. “I’m in love with Anna—”
I smiled, instantly and brilliantly, tears pricking my eyes. I’d never heard anyone tell me that before. The words were new, rusty to my ears, but the swell of emotion, the overwhelming feeling of joy pumped through my body with every beat of my heart. He loved me. Nick loved me! How had that happened? I’d tried and tried to push him away, keep my distance, to protect myself, my heart from him.
Reaching out, he grabbed my hand and pulled me to him for a quick, rough kiss. It was filled with a tenderness and need I’d never felt before. His hand at the nape of my neck held me in place, even after he pulled back and stared into my eyes. He was breathing hard, his eyes dark.
“—and I’m also a cop.”
What? What had he said? My smile fell, but the tears remained, slid down my cheeks. Now they fell out of something other than happiness. “You’re a…” I swallowed past the lump in my throat as I pulled back out of his grip.
“Cop.” Nick took my hand as if he needed a lifeline, but I yanked it away.
HOT PURSUIT 3
Anna Scott has given Nick everything. Her heart, her body, and the truth about her past. But every action has consequences, and now, thanks to her, Nick is in more trouble than ever. He's running from his old boss, distracted from his undercover work, and secretly negotiating with the most powerful mafia boss in New York. She knows the only way to free him is to step into the spotlight once more and face her enemies. She is convinced that Nick must stay in the shadows to be safe, but the stubborn man isn't cooperating. Once she learns the truth about him--that he's really Jake Griffin--she realizes that his sense of honor and duty will get him killed. Protecting the man she loves is the only thing that matters to her now, no matter the cost.
Jake Griffin is in love with a woman on the run. The woman he knew and fell in love with was an illusion born of desperation. Anna Scott has powerful enemies and blood in her past, but neither can deny the passion between them. Grif will do whatever it takes to help her, including recruiting a notorious killer to help him. Grif will walk the razor's edge between right and wrong, good and evil, truth and lies, because Anna Scott is everything to him now, and he'll play any game, take any risk to save her from the monsters in her past, and from herself.
