Standing at the receptionist’s desk, I waited to hear the verdict. Would Wade see me or not? When I heard his answer, I breathed a sigh of relief. I didn’t want my stupidity to ruin my shop’s chances at success.
The receptionist smiled up at me. “You can go back now, Ms. Carmichael. His office is the last one on the right.”
“Thank you,” I replied with a smile of my own.
Pulse pounding in my ears, I walked down the hall to Wade’s office. I had a folder of my designs tucked under my arm. Hopefully, it’d be enough to persuade him. Taking a deep breath, I knocked on his door.
“Come in,” he called out, his voice making me shiver.
I hated how this man made me feel like that. It’d been over a week and I could still feel the way he touched every square inch of my body. I wasn’t a needy woman, but he made me want more. This is business, nothing more.
Head held high, I opened the door. Wade was at his desk, leaning back in his chair, all cool and confident, dressed in his expensive suit with his brown hair perfectly coifed. Definitely not a bundle of nerves, like I was. “Mr. Chandler, it’s good to see you again.”
His brows lifted. “Likewise. Although I’d probably believe it more if you hadn’t run out on me the last time.”
And there it was.
Biting my lip, I shut the door. I couldn’t tell if he was angry, or didn’t care. “Thought I’d save you the trouble,” I confessed. “We both had a little too much to drink that night. And let’s face it, it was either going to be me or you. And I prefer not to be the one left behind.”
“Neither do I,” he said in all seriousness. “So, what brings you here?”
Ok, that’s not true. Some of her villains I loathe. I should rephrase that to say, I’ve never met a hero of L.P.’s that I didn’t like and Wade is definitely one of the favorites!
Nothing better than a secret agent with a heart of gold, and Wade is both in spades. All he’s missing is the perfect partner that he doesn’t know he wants. Until he reconnects with Brina, a childhood friend.
Brina is beautiful, smart, and trying desperately to get away from all the politics that her family is involved in. Being the former First Daughter and now sister to the current POTUS, all she really wants is to have success on her own.
I love these two together. Going into this book, you know what secrets Wade keeps because we met him in book 1, Trigger. There are a few little surprises about Ms. Carmichael however, that tickled me when revealed.
As usual, there are lots of little twists, and some downright steamy sex scenes, but the overall plot of the book is so much more. I’m really loving this latest series of hers. You don’t have to read Trigger to read Target, but if you like romantic suspense, then I recommend that you do.
She loves to write, but she also loves to play tennis, go on mountain hikes and white water rafting, and has a passion for singing. Her two youngest fans expect a concert each and every night before bedtime, usually Christmas carols.
Dover has written countless novels, including her Forever Fae series, the Second Chances series, the Gloves Off series, the Armed & Dangerous series, the Royal Shifters series, and her standalone novel Love, Lies, and Deception. Her favorite genre to read and write is romantic suspense, but if she got to choose a setting in which to live, it would be with her faeries in the Land of the Fae.
