ALL SHE WANTED
Intrepid Women Book 6
BY KATHRYN JANE
Angie is a kick-ass agent, a helicopter pilot, single mom to a teenager, and she’s madly in love with her son’s father—a man whose identity she’s kept secret for many years. But her patience has worn thin.
Research scientist, Matthias Alejandro Martinez, is quite content to live in an underground facility where he’s safe from those who want him dead. And staying far away from Angie and Dhillon keeps them safe too.
But what if everything he knows, isn’t as it seems? What if the organized criminals he’s hiding from are closer than he thinks?
“I. Don’t. Do. Christmas.”
Angie resisted the impulse to argue. Their relationship had been on his terms for years and for a very good reason. But this time Dr. Matthias Alejandro Martinez was just being stubborn.
And she still had four months to strategize. To convince him how important it was to spend Christmas at the ranch with her and their son. Until now, she’d never argued, never asked for anything, believed she had no choice but to go along with him because that’s what you did when you were in love with a heart-stoppingly gorgeous man who didn’t exist in the real world.
“Are we good here?”
Oh, not by a long shot, pal. “You know I have to be gone, like, ten minutes ago.”
He reached out with the sureness of an old lover and ran a fingertip along her jawbone, cupped her chin. “Will you kiss me goodbye?”
He always asked, never took. And, dammit, she couldn’t look into those serious blue eyes and deny the man anything. He’d been making her crazy for years, why would it change now? She lifted to her tiptoes, and slid her fingers into the thick, unruly hair brushing the back of his white collar. “I hate you,” she said and dragged his mouth down to hers.
“I know.” Hands on her butt, he lifted her off her feet, and just when she was afraid the top of her head was going to blow off, the vibration of his cell made her groan.
“You programmed that, didn’t you?”
He set her down with a sexy chuckle and slipped on heavy black-rimmed glasses to check the display. “I have to take this.”
Author Kathryn Jane writes the kind of stories she loves to read. The fast-paced kind filled with love, life and adventure along with a smattering of special abilities. She dearly wants to be the perfect combination of Nora Roberts, and Kay Hooper when she grows up!
Kat fills her non-writing time with rescuing cats, painting rocks, and walking on the beach not far from her Pacific Northwest home. She’s blessed to have a charming prince who bakes bread from scratch, and knows not to interrupt while characters are being created. He and the dog also know to stay out of the way of the feline diva who guards the writing cave.
