Author: Brooke London
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Alyssa must protect her grandfather’s cutting-edge, environmentally friendly oil sands extraction technology—and his life. Forced into dealing with her grandfather’s chosen partner, Connor, a wildcard business mogul and ex-CIA spy, she knows she can’t trust him.
Connor resents that Alyssa has the final say on his multimillion dollar partnership. When someone tries to kill them both, they are thrust together and their mutual attraction sparks hot enough to heat the sheets to searing intensity, despite their mutual distrust.
Together they race between his headquarters in Colorado and the oil sands of Alberta to stay one step ahead of the terrorists who are determined to stop them at any cost. It will take their combined cunning and courage to survive the explosive and treacherous covert world of espionage, betrayal, terrorists and spies. But even if they do, can they survive the secrets they are keeping from each other?
About the author from her publisher's Website:
Ten days after Brooke’s last exam at university, she took off for a three month tour of Australia and New Zealand. No, the SS Minnow was not lost. A year and a half later, after adding Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, India and Britain to the itinerary, she returned to her snowy home town of Sherwood Park, Alberta, Canada. Deciding that she wanted a change of location, she flipped a coin to decide whether to live in Vancouver or in Toronto. Toronto won (or lost, depending upon how one looks at it).
After working at stockbrokerages for three years, she went back to school to learn how to program computers. Her current job, when not writing, is as a project manager/business analyst for a leading IT integration firm.
