Whiskey Creek Press Torrid
CIA Agent Melanie Webber's job is simple, go to a party, slip into the Shield offices, and download encrypted data. Tired of being only a computer geek at the CIA, she's contemplating a change of careers.
Ace Riser Delta agent is waiting in the dark for the assassin he's been assigned to take out. When she appears something about her doesn't feel right. Still he takes her down with a sedative, carries her to his van, and takes her to his safe house. Considering his troubles of late, he isn't taking anything on faith. Once there he searches her for ID and finds out she's a CIA agent. Shocked, but not surprised he tries to figure out who set them up. Melanie's big violet eyes open and he feels like he's been sucker punched.
Melanie looks back at the tall, dark, intense man who'd obviously kidnapped her, and dizzy from whatever he'd injected her with, and bursts out laughing. His frown makes her laugh all the harder. When he tells her someone set them both up, she thinks he's nuts. When she makes contact with her agency, and they both come under attack, she finally believes him.
They break contact with their agencies. On the run, sharing secrets and plans, their passion grows. Ace has suspected for some time that he's been targeted. Melanie tells him about some information that she's recently uncovered. They work together to bring down the moles in both agencies.
