Synopsis: When archaeologist MARA GARRETT traveled to North Korea to retrieve the remains of GIs lost in combat, she never imagined she’d be arrested, convicted of spying and sentenced to death.
Mara’s only hope is a very-last-minute rescue by the US Attorney, CURT DOMINICK. He also happens to be the man prosecuting the only family she has left, her uncle, the former Vice President of the United States. You can’t blame her for being grateful to him for saving her life, but you also can’t shame her for the attraction they share but resist at every turn.
In a high stakes race to uncover a conspiracy that could lead to WW III, they become a reluctant team that traverses the globe to get to Washington, DC all while surviving professional attempts on her life. Passions clash with loyalty when they discover a conspiracy that threatens not only their lives, but also the national security of the United States. Mara possesses a secret…one she never knew she even had.
