Hot & Bothered
Hostile Operations Team Series - Book 8
By Lynn Raye Harris
SynopsisHe can never have her. Having her means the end of his career in the Hostile Operations Team. But when he learns she’s carrying his child, he’ll have to make a choice… Ryan “Flash” Gordon has been drawn to Emily Royal bin Yusuf since the first moment he met her. But she’s a terrorist’s widow, which means she’s completely off-limits. A HOT special operator can never be with a woman whose name is on government watch lists the world over. But when Emily begs him for just one night, he can’t refuse. The next morning, she’s gone. Not just from his bed, but from his life. Emily can never clear her name—or can she? When a rogue CIA operative offers her a chance to put her past behind her and do something for her country, she leaps at the opportunity—even though it means leaving behind the man she’s fallen in love with. But not before she lets herself have one night with him. One night with stunning consequences…
“You went willingly. After…” He shook his head, his jaw hardening as he gazed down at her. He practically vibrated with anger. “I can’t believe you left like that. Do you know how worried Victoria’s been? How worried we’ve all been?”
Emily lifted a hand, but he recoiled from her as if he couldn’t bear for her to touch him. Hot tears pressed against her eyelids.
“I was trying to do the right thing—”
“The right thing?” He looked at her disbelievingly. “The right fucking thing wasn’t leaving people who care about you! It wasn’t leaving my bed in the middle of the night without a fucking word!”
She heard the clearing of throats and a muttered curse, and it hit her that he’d just revealed something that would have been better off kept secret. For his sake, not hers.
“Not here,” she said fiercely. “Not now.”
