One book, Two Missions, and a memory-key full of secrets!

After a series of terrorist attacks on fracking sites owned by a Gas multinational named Drilsink, Sir James Aiken’s agency is bought in to find the radical Eco-terrorist group responsible. He sends Sam and Declan to work undercover at Imperial College where Intel suggests the group are recruiting. While Sam works behind the scenes, Declan takes on the identity of Geologist Dr. Tobias Hunter and soon makes an enemy of a fellow science geek- a man who Declan comes to despise more than Sir James Aiken!

When the operation moves from London to Munich and then Vienna, Sam, and Declan are thrown headlong into a spy scenario straight out of the thriller novels they love to read—but with a distinct and disturbing sexual twist! Sam meets an old friend and uncovers shocking information about James’ past.

With Erik Madsson still imprisoned inside the A.L.L. HQ, James comes to realize that he should have listened to his son. Keeping the enemy inside his own home is about to be the biggest mistake he has ever made.

This book is an M/M Romance thriller, therefore contains graphic gay sexual references.

Exclusive Excerpt

Sam tied off the cord just above Declan’s watch strap then stood back and admired his handiwork. The blue cord looked good against Declan’s freckled, milky-pale, Scottish skin and the position his arms were bound in forced Declan to stand straighter, his hips thrust out, displaying his cock and balls—making him quite deliciously helpless.

Sam leaned in and kissed the sensitive places he knew would make his husband moan, behind Declan’s ears and the nape of his neck. As he kissed, he ran his hands slowly from Declan’s muscled shoulders and down his bound arms to the tips of reddening fingers. He pinched the fingertips one by one.

“Can you feel the burn, baby?” He asked softly to Declan’s ear.

  • I enjoyed the previous books in this series. I was lucky enough to win a copy of the art zine prize that she’s offering. It’s great even if you don’t know much about the series.
