JustRead Publicity Tours


A K-9 protection team. An assassin. Only one can survive.

An assassin is on the loose in the Twin Cities, aiming to kill FBI witnesses the Phoenix K-9 Security and Detection Agency is hired to protect. Rogue CIA agent Amalia PĂ©rez and her protection K-9 must get the edge on this deadly opponent before he kills her childhood best friend—the only man who knows her true identity.

Investigative journalist Michael Barrett can’t believe his eyes when the woman he’s spent years searching for walks back into his life. But he soon fears the woman he loved is lost forever beneath the secrets Amalia wears like armor.

As the assassin closes in, Amalia will risk anything to keep Michael safe—anything except believing in the God he trusts. When the layers of deception become as dangerous as bullets, can Amalia and Michael uncover the truth in time to stop the assassin from completing his lethal mission?

“Hey.” Michael’s gentle, husky voice behind Amalia almost startled her.

Inexcusable. He could’ve been anyone. She’d let herself be distracted. A deadly mistake in this business. And in her life.

She went to fill Raksa’s dish with water, using the bottle she’d brought from her house and left by the sink earlier. “You’re pretty good at that.”

“At what?”

She finished pouring water into the dish and gave Michael a wide smile. “The daddy routine.”

His mouth formed a harsh line in the stubble that surrounded it. “It wasn’t a routine. I wanted to be nice to her. She’s been through a lot.”

“Well, I’m sure she’ll feel much better knowing she has you wrapped around her little finger.”

He scowled. “She’d probably really feel better if you’d stop treating her the way you have.”

“Oh?” She quirked an eyebrow, braced her hands on the island between them. “And how is that?”

He stepped closer to the island on the other side, his blue eyes darkening. “Like a terrorist suspect.”

She grinned.

“You think that’s funny?” His frown deepened.

“A little, yeah.”
