On a trip to France after her college graduation, Jules is kidnapped and forced to work for a terrorist group and leave safe and secure world behind. For three years she did what she had to do to protect her family and the man she left behind.
Manny has used every connection he can through his work as a CIA agent to find Jules after her disappearance three years ago. When he finally finds her, he will do anything just to get her safe and back into his arms. But there is deception at every turn and too many people who want to make sure that Manny doesn't succeed in getting Jules back to Washington D.C. so she can finally be safe.
This book was previously published by Maya Banks in 2007 under the author name of Sharon Long. The book has been re-edited and re-released.
Long Road Home has all the earmarks of one of Maya Banks' finest suspense story. If you've only read her category romance books, pick up this one. Maya is such a versatile writer she does extremely well with action thrillers, such as this one, and in the same vein is an extremely talented erotic author.
CIA counter-terrorism expert Manual Ramirez has spent the last three years looking for the woman he loves, who disappeared without a trace while on a post-graduate trip to France.
Then, as suddenly as she disappeared, Jules Trehan turns up in a small-town Colorado hospital bed, injured in an explosion that killed her parents. Manny is shocked by the change in the woman he once knew. Kidnapped by a shadowy organization, Jules has been forced to become the very thing he’s pledged his life to defeat—a terrorist assassin.
Knowing her testimony will finally bring down the organization, Manny races to get her to Washington, D.C. in one piece. Just when there’s a glimmer of hope of overcoming her past, Jules must pull off one last job or Manny’s life will be forfeit. It’s a mission she must complete…even if it means betraying the only man she has ever loved.
