“It was recorded,” Ethan explained, standing with legs wide and steady in front of the bemused Josh, waiting for a reply.
The color drained from Josh’s face, his blue eyes bright against pale skin as he opened the box to reveal a neat little camcorder taped inside. Ethan watched as Josh picked at the duct tape, pulling the video camera free and holding it in shaking hands. It was obvious Josh had questions, but nothing was coming out, and he was just staring at the camera and then up to Ethan, his face a mask of shock.
“Take it.” Ethan instructed, “Destroy it,” he added, and then walked to the door, taking his leave of this whole sorry deal.
“Wait,” he heard Josh call out after him, “Ethan…”
Ethan paused in his tactical retreat, turning on his heel, his face blank of the emotions that churned in his stomach, emotions foreign to him.
“You didn’t pay me to talk,” he bit out, staying in character.
This book is a brand new novel expanded from a short story of the same name.
A seductive stranger gives Josh everything he wants, but one night of lust could get them both killed.
Driven by a combination of alcohol-induced recklessness and an overwhelming desire for something real, Josh ventures into a dark and seedy bar and lusts after a sexy, enigmatic hooker. When Josh negotiates a price for one night of pleasure he can’t know that when his time with Ethan is over, he'll be left shattered and forever changed by the encounter. Fleeing with his son is the only means of ensuring their survival amidst the chaos of what comes next, and there’s only one man he can trust to keep them safe.
A hooker who isn’t a hooker at all.
Ethan is on the brink of completing a covert operation that will enable him to infiltrate a human trafficking ring. Yet, when his conscience clashes with his mission, Ethan disobeys orders, jeopardizing everything he's worked for. Forced to escape, he takes Josh and his son, but he has nowhere to go, and now, their only hope lies in seeking refuge in an isolated safe house far from prying eyes.
Protecting Josh, Ben, and a tuxedo cat called Oreo, is Ethan's priority. Only he has no choice but to resume his undercover role, and he must leave Josh and Ben behind.
When a gun is pointed at his head, his final thought is that he’s lost everything that matters; can he make it home to his new family? Or will he have to die to protect the people he loves?More info →
