New York Times bestselling author Suzanne
Brockmann knows exactly what makes hearts race and pulses pound: peril and
passion. No one succeeds more brilliantly at blending these exhilarating
elements in breathtaking novels of men and women forced to grapple with the
deepest emotions and the highest risks. And there’s no better proof than Hot Target—which will thrill on every level.
Like most men of action, Navy SEAL chief Cosmo Richter never
learned how to take a vacation. So when he finds himself facing a month’s
leave, he offers his services to Troubleshooters Incorporated. Founded by a
former SEAL, the private-sector security firm is a major player in the ongoing
war against terrorism and known for carrying out covert missions too volatile for
official US military action. But Richter’s first case is anything
but under the radar.
High-profile maverick movie producer Jane Mercedes Chadwick
hasn’t quite completed her newest film, but she’s already courting controversy.
The World War II epic frankly portrays the homosexuality of a real-life hero—and
the storm of advance media buzz surrounding it has drawn the fury of extremist
groups. But despite a relentless campaign of angry emails, phone calls, and
smear tactics, Chadwick won’t be pressured into abandoning the project. Then
the death threats come.
While the FBI appears on the scene, nervous Hollywood
associates call in Troubleshooters, and now Chadwick has an army of
round-the-clock bodyguards, whether she likes it or not—and she definitely
doesn’t. Her stubbornness doesn’t make FBI agent Jules Cassidy’s job any
easier. The fiercely independent filmmaker presents yet another emotional
obstacle that Cassidy doesn’t need—he’s already in the middle of a personal
tug-of-war with his ex-lover, and fighting a growing attraction to Chadwick’s
Determined to succeed—and survive—on her own terms, Chadwick
will face off with enemies and allies alike. But she doesn’t count on the bond
she’ll form with the quiet, capable Cosmo Richter. Yet even as their feelings
bring them closer, the noose of deadly terror all around them draws tighter.
And when all hell erupts, desire and desperate choices will collide on a
killing ground that may trap them both in the crossfire. Download and start listening now!
