WANTED (FBI Heat #3)


GIVEAWAY ALERT

I’m so excited about the release of WANTED, the third book in the sexy, edgy FBI Heat series. Writing about hot agents on explosive cases has been such fun. Each book is so different that it keeps you guessing and turning the pages to see what happens next.

The title probably makes you think the story is about a wanted criminal. But it’s not. WANTED refers to a strong desire by each of the main characters. The bad guy wanted to cause a catastrophic nuclear meltdown. The hero and heroine wanted—wait, no more spoilers allowed! You’ll just have to read the book to find out what they each wanted, but I will tell you that it turned the heroine into a runaway bride. J

Although each story in the FBI Heat series stands alone, you’ll enjoy reconnecting with several of your favorite characters from HUNTED and TARGETED. In WANTED, Special Agent Dillon O’Malley teams up with a fascinating heroine, Kat MacKenzie, the woman who left him at the altar (literally) two years ago. The heart-pounding action revolves around the sabotage of a nuclear power plant, but you’ll also be holding your breath to see if Dillon and Kat’s second chance at love leads to a happily-ever-after.

Now I’m so thrilled to share a little bit about WANTED with you.

For San Diego’s elite FBI agents, risking their lives is standard procedure when it comes to capturing the city’s most dangerous criminals—but falling in love is the greatest risk of all.

Kat MacKenzie knows something is terribly wrong at the Diablo Beach Nuclear Power Plant, but she can’t figure out if it’s computer error, equipment malfunction, or human sabotage. Unfortunately, the only person she can trust with the problem is the man she left at the altar two years ago. If Dillon doesn’t already hate her, he surely will once he discovers why she abandoned him.

The last person he expects to call him is the woman who broke his heart. But FBI Special Agent Dillon O’Malley can’t ignore Kat’s plea for help—not when national security may be at stake. As enemies become clear and catastrophe threatens, can Kat and Dillon put the past behind them to save the day and secure their future?

Excerpt:
A man stood several feet away, out of the glow from the porch light, partially hidden in the shadows, intensity rolling off him in waves. Tall. Muscular. Broad shoulders. Narrow hips. A shock of black hair hanging on his forehead and the hunger of a wolf glistening in his blue eyes. His handsome-as-hell image slammed into her, stealing her breath.

“Dillon.” The name left her lips like a whispered prayer.

She clutched the edge of the door. She needed to hang on for two reasons: Her knees had gone weak at the sight of him, and if she didn’t cling to the door, she’d throw herself into his arms and beg him to forgive her.

All the love she’d buried for the past two years swelled inside her heart and then rose to the surface to steal her voice. She still loved this man more than she could bear. She loved him so much that she’d given him up so he could live his life as he had always wanted. Letting him go had cost her dearly. Now he stood staring at her, accusation and agony so strong in his eyes that she couldn’t look away.

Her fingers tightened on the door. “What are you doing here?”

“I needed to see with my own eyes that you’re all right. May I come in?” His voice sounded thick with longing.

“I-I don’t think that’s a good idea.”

She pulled the robe tighter around her, feeling vulnerable for being naked beneath it. Dillon’s gaze dropped to the robe and then farther down to her bare legs and feet. He gulped, and his eyes darkened. She remembered his large, warm hands roaming all over her body and him thrusting inside her. Heat crept up her cheeks. Even worse was the heat settling between her thighs.

He studied her with those piercing blue eyes as if he could see into her soul. “Yeah, you’re definitely right.”

His gaze traveled up and down the length of her body again until she swore his fingers were caressing her beneath the terrycloth. She bit back a whimper of need. She hadn’t let a man touch her intimately since she fled from the church, since she ran away from Dillon. She had destroyed their relationship, but somehow, she still belonged to him. Maybe she always would.
