Special Agent: Austin Rose
• Make the D.I.R.E. Agency
Twelve years ago, Austin Rose silently stood by while his mother sent his brother away from home and their stepfather’s abuse. Now that he’s learned the truth behind his family’s lies, Austin is a changed man, determined to make things right with the D.I.R.E. super agent - and himself - by making the elite security agency.
A hit gone bad changed assassin, Belle Mason’s life forever. Assigned to San Diego for a D.I.R.E. agent’s wedding, she’s determined to bring down D.I.R.E. while its vulnerable, and give her sisters a new life. What she doesn’t count on is interference from the distracting, forbidden Austin Rose, or his knack for dispelling her lifelong truths.
When Austin’s chances of making the agency hinge on going undercover with Belle – literally – he’ll do whatever it takes to make the team.
But, when Belle decides to put her own life on the line, only one truth remains, and Austin won’t silently stand by…
A sudden thought hit her. D.I.R.E. was using him to get to her. She’d become vulnerable in their eyes. One of, if not the greatest sin she could make in her position.
Then again, they’d chosen well. She would do just about anything for Austin Rose.
She tapped a finger against her mouth. “I’m not quite sure if I recognize him or not. I can’t recall.”
Austin let out a deep sigh. “Belle, you need to cooperate.”
Cocking her head, she gave him a get-real frown. “Why? What’s in it for me? Either way, D.I.R.E. won’t let me go.”
“You don’t know that. If you are guilty of something besides assaulting me, you’d get a lighter sentence if you cooperate.”
She pulled back her head. “Assaulting you? You’re the one that tried to stop me.”
Pointing at her, he said, “You struck first.”
Belle leaned in his face. “Because you were trying to stop me.”
He growled low in his throat. “Ugh, forget it. I’m done here.” Rising from the bed, he took his fragrant jacket with him.
A sudden, overwhelming sadness threatened to choke her. She swallowed it down with the remaining bile. “What about you?” Her voice came out a weak, shaky mess.
He turned to look over his shoulder. “What about me?”
She couldn’t believe she was really doing this. “What if I said I wanted you in exchange for information?”
