Micah Steele’s past has been erased. The man he has become was born of a betrayal so shattering he has closed himself off from others. His current assignment tests the ice cold control he exerts over his emotions. Posing as the lover of Risa Clay to flush out an assassin may be more than this fiercely protective warrior can handle. Her air of innocence is at odds with the sensual hunger in her eyes. To end the threat to Risa’s life and finally capture the killer who destroyed his world Micah is willing to give his life.
Risa has spent six years trying to put her life back together after her father’s brutal betrayal and the vicious assault that nearly stole her mind. Now to thwart an assassin’s watchful gaze she must place her life in the hands of a man who makes her crave his touch like a starving man craves a crust of bread. When their act becomes reality and Risa claims Micah as her lover, Risa’s heart may be the first casualty of this battle.
Maverick is the second book in Lora Leigh’s Elite Ops series. Micah and Risa are two strong valiant characters it was a delight to watch heal. With her customary panache for emotionally intense, sensual characters, the author attracts readers into every world she creates. This fabulous follow-up to Wild Cardis no exception to the rule. Enjoy!
