Searing action and passion ignite the latest KGI novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Darkest Before Dawn.

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...

As the last unattached member of the Kelly clan, Joe is more than ready to risk life and limb on any mission he’s assigned to, but when it comes to love, he’ll keep his distance. He’s content to watch his brothers become thoroughly domesticated. 

Zoe’s had nothing but heartbreak in her life, and she’s determined to start over with a completely new identity, thanks to her college friend, Rusty Kelly. But it’s the gorgeous smile and tender words of Joe Kelly that begin to weaken her resolve to never risk her heart again. And Joe will have to put everything on the line to save Zoe, when secrets of her past resurface—and threaten to tear them apart.

Joe one of the members of the Kelley Group International has no problem risking his life daily on any mission he is assigned. In fact he will gladly take it on. But love, no way, that he will not risk. Not a limb, a heart, nothing. He has been watching his brothers one by one get plucked off and enter the world of domestication. Don’t get me wrong, he is happy for his bothers for they are happy, but it is a world he is just not interested in until he meets his sister’s friend Zoe, where something is just a bit off but he can’t put his finger on it. He is determined to find out.

Zoe has a new identity no thanks to the constant heartbreak in her life that has actually forced her into hiding. Zoe is determined to start fresh, although maybe not into a relationship of any kind but at least a fresh start at a new life. One that she can be who she really is and not someone who people think she should be. With the help of her old college friend Rusty she now has a legit new identity and look.

Joe can sense something is off about Zoe; jittery, nervous why? His sister Rusty is not giving him anything. As Joe removes the layers from Zoe and she slowly resolves and warms to him what Joe unveils is not what he expected, his heart her secrets. Now Joe will put everything on the line to save her.

Great story line, love the characters especially Rusty who is my favorite. Rusty is feisty and knows what she wants and will stop at nothing to prove it and she sure did at that. The transforming relationship between Joe and Zoe, Zoe fighting it and Joe realizing his brothers were right. When you find the one, you just know.

All in all great story, I definitely recommend.

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.
