Police sniper Maya Aaron finds herself in the crosshairs of not just one but two madmen. One sends her flowers with secret meanings, the other? He’ll stop at nothing to control her, including framing her for murder.
All she’s ever wanted was to protect the few people she's allowed into her life - by studying Krav Maga, shooting at the range, knife fighting and riding her motorcycle fast.
But when she gives in to former British SAS Officer Duncan’s dominant desires, her stalkers find out and set their sights on destroying him and her friends. Duncan finally feels he's found his 'worth it' and he will battle anyone that gets in his way. But can he survive when she pushes him away?
Maya decides to come out of the shadows, guns blazing, removing her stalker problems once and for all. Can she have a life she never dared dream of and keep everyone safe? When the smoke clears will she have a chance with the man that ignites her soul?
"Earth to Maya. Want to tell me about the man?" David's voice interrupts my fantasy.
"He's Ana's brother. We met at her wedding in June."
"Is that all? You know I could have his whole dossier before morning."
"He's a friend. Don't worry about it."
"He could have been the one searching your background."
"No. It wasn't him. He just..." I feel the sudden urge to flee. "David..." I hear the panic in my voice.
My tone must have put David on edge, he turns and then his body is falling into me. I pull him with me as I grab my cell phone from my purse and pull us behind a bench. We decided to walk through the park near my condo so we could talk. Two more bullets hit the pavement near where we are hiding. I feel the bite of rock hitting my skin, more importantly, I feel the stickiness of David's blood as it runs from his body.
"9-1-1 what's your emergency?"
"This is Officer Aaron of the ERT. Shots fired, one person hit. We are at the park near Massachusetts Avenue and Third Street in the Triangle. Request ambulance and ERT for a possible sniper."
"Maya..." David groans. I look down to see the shot entered his back on the right side and exited through his chest.
"How bad?" I'm worried about him.
"Not to bad. I won't be able to show you up in the gym tomorrow."
I hear the sirens and realize no more shots have been fired.
