THE ALL-NEW KGI NOVEL from the “incredibly awesome" (Jaci Burton) #1 New York Times bestselling author of When Day Breaks.

The Kelly Group International (KGI): A super-elite, top secret, family-run business.
Qualifications: High intelligence, rock-hard body, military background.
Mission: Hostage/kidnap victim recovery. Intelligence gathering. Handling jobs the U.S. government can’t...

The enigmatic Hancock has been both opponent and ally to the KGI teams for as long as they've known him. Always working a deep game, Hancock's true allegiance has never been apparent, but one thing is for certain—he never lets anything get in the way of duty.

But now, his absolute belief in the primacy of his ultimate goal is challenged by a captive he's been ordered to guard, no matter how much she suffers in her prison. She's the only woman who's ever managed to penetrate the rigid walls surrounding his icy heart, but will he allow his perplexing feelings for the beautiful victim to destroy a mission he's spent years working to complete or will he be forced to sacrifice her for “the greater good.”

Honor a relief worker in the Middle East was running for her life from the same people who bombed her village where no one survived but her. They knew she survived and will stop at nothing until they found her and tortured her to death just for the simple facts that one she survived but worse because she helps people in need. Honor is injured, out of food and water and in the middle of nowhere but her survival instincts have kicked in and she will not give up. She just needs to get across the border without getting caught.

Hancock ordered by his employer to fly out to the war zone to find Honor and guard her until his employer was ready for her. Finding her was easy. Luring her in to believe he was trying to save her piece of cake, but can he stand by and watch her suffer in her little prison of a room all for what he believed was for the greater good is another story. Something about her is getting through his walls.

This is my first KGI novel, I have not read any other books in the series. I was able to read it as a standalone which I liked because I did not feel like I was missing something. It was an interesting story, sad though because there is a bit of truth as we all know what goes on in the Middle East. Maya did a great job of mixing some of that truth into this story where two people are fighting for the greater good in their own ways and thoughts of what that actually is. Along the way they spark off a romance that has no chance of survival. But whose survival is the real question.

Now that I have been introduced to the series I definitely will be picking up the rest.

About the Author:
I live in Texas with my husband and three children and our assortment of pets. I’m more of a cat person, but my daughter became convinced she NEEDED a dog.

When I’m not writing, I love to hunt and fish with my family. We all love the outdoors and go on family hunting trips every year. We also love to travel.

Perhaps the most rewarding aspect of a writing career is getting to meet so many wonderful readers. There’s nothing better than dishing books with someone who loves the romance genre as much as I do. Romance readers are passionate and vocal. We love our books, love our happily ever afters, and we love to spend time talking to others about our favorites. THIS is why I love my job so much, and I’m so grateful to readers who gave ME a chance when I began my career. So thank you.
