True Deceptions Excerpt Tour

After his partner was murdered, Simon Dunn was done with MI6. But the cold, violent world of British intelligence never lets anyone go free. Now Simon has been blackmailed into a new job...with a beautiful new partner who's going to get them both killed.

Robotics expert Cassie Watson is a newbie field agent with as much sophistication as...well, a pacifist, vegan computer nerd. Now she's abruptly thrust into the cutthroat world of espionage with a partner who is as cold as he is brutally-and brutishly-handsome.

But when their mission is betrayed from the inside, Cassie will be forced to place her life in the hands of the one man who's anything but trustworthy...

Exclusive Excerpt:
Her arm stretched across the room for her towel at the same moment the door opened. Simon stared directly at her uncovered chest and then moved his glance down her body. The only part hidden was her backside.

What the...

She flung the towel around her and stepped over the edge of the tub. Heat covered her face like a crimson veil.

“Hey,” she hollered. “The door was locked.”

He leaned against the wall, looking almost bored. “I’m locked out of nothing here. Do you understand?”

The calming effect of the shower disappeared. All of her fears and insecurities emerged. They’d said the assignment would push her boundaries, but she’d never thought the mission through. This wasn’t a challenge. This was hell on Earth.“I have no bed, my previous existence has been erased, I’m assigned to the devil, and now I have zero privacy? Wrong.”

Her voice lifted to an octave below a screech. She stepped toward him and poked him in the chest. He didn’t move. “I will have privacy. Unless you are stopping terrorists bent on killing me in the shower, you will never, and I mean never, enter this bathroom while I’m inside.”

She thought about poking him again, but she hated violence and would already be berating herself all night over her outburst.

Simon smiled. A dimple emerged on his cheek and laugh lines appeared around his eyes, the kind that only formed after decades of happiness. It was so unexpected, it frightened her.

“Glad to see you have your limits. You appeared too timid to survive in the field. I refuse to work with someone like that. Too much fear will make you do inept things, causing one or both of our deaths. Goodnight.” His gaze drifted across her bared body parts before he turned and left the room.
