Blurb

This isn’t how our story ends.
No. This murder we’ve just committed?
This is how our story truly begins . . .

I told myself I was going to save her.

I didn’t realize what a lie that was.

This neurosis has sunk in too deep. All it took was one glimpse of another man inside her for the beast that murdered Barnard to finish consuming me.

I’ve turned her into killer.

Just like me.

With every corroded, toxicity-infested sin laid bare between us, all that’s left is revenge.

And the chasm of diabolical need that tethers us.

A need to consume each other.
A need to make our enemies pay.
They stole seven years from us. Every ounce of sanity we had left.
Now, we’re going to steal everything from them.

Most of all, we won’t stop until every single one of them is dead.

I told myself I was going to save Lexi . . . in reality, I’ve finished ruining her.

And she would have it no other way.

Warning: this series is not for everyone. As the story progresses, dark themes are explored that might be a trigger for some. Please read at your own discretion. Definitely 18+.

Together, they have to risk it all | Mission: Impossible to Surrender @jackidelecki #RomanticSuspense




Title: Mission: Impossible to Surrender
Series: Impossible Mission #2
Author: Jacki Delecki
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: February 21, 2019



Blurb

She’s not a party girl anymore…

Sophie Dean has worked long and hard to shed the rock-n-roll bad girl reputation she earned at college. With her rebellious days behind her, Sophie now uses the prestige of the Dean family name and money to bankroll humanitarian aid. The only part of her past she can’t leave behind is the major crush she has on Finn Jenkins. When danger from an unknown quarter threatens Sophie’s latest undertaking and she needs protection, fate steps in and delivers a second chance with Finn.

He's fought his feelings for too long…

When Finn returns home after two tours of duty as a Navy SEAL, it doesn’t take long to realize he still has feelings for Sophie, who is no longer the irresponsible young woman he walked away from all those years ago. An assignment to escort Sophie and an orphaned Pakistani boy to the Pacific Northwest should have been an easy mission—and it’s the perfect opportunity to get re-acquainted with Sophie and finally confess how he feels. But when someone threatens the orphan in their care, Sophie and Finn must set aside their feelings to save the child’s life…and their own.

Together, they’ll have to risk it all.

Excerpt

Sophie perused him carefully. She tracked his entire body from his overgrown military haircut to his favorite boots. It was good that SEALs had incredible mastery over their bodies or her baby blues lingering on his stomach and groin would be a problem, a very specific problem that sparked to life with the hope of having her full attention.
“Let me translate Finn speak. You probably have twenty to thirty stitches and it is a big deal.”
Despite his intensive training—and practice—in lying under interrogation, he never got anything past this meddling woman. And why did he hope she’d always be meddling in his life? “Soph, all you need to know is that I’m fine. Unless, of course you want to play nurse and examine me?”
Sophie’s eyes widened, her forehead furrowed as she tugged on her pillow soft lower lip. “Nice try, Jenkins. I know you’d never let me near you.”
Finn couldn’t breathe. His heart rate ratcheted up five knots. The way Sophie said it was like a question, not her usually flippant “whatever” tone. Was she hoping for a different answer than his usual? A man could dream.
She brushed away a curl that had fallen out the ponytail she’d pulled her hair into. And Finn couldn’t look away from the feminine gesture. Hunger jamming his throat.
“Did someone shoot you or stab you this time?”
He didn’t see any purpose in discussing how close he came to bleeding out and how many times he had been close to dying on this last mission. Or the previous ones this past decade and more. Tender and sensitive, Sophie kept him on edge. He didn’t want her seeing him as weak, or vulnerable. And to be honest, though he knew he should think of Sophie as a strong, resolute woman—as she’d proved herself during her kidnapping—he didn’t want his recollections of potential death and pain to flood her mind. “Not your problem.”
Sophie uncrossed her leg and leaned back in the chair, not fooling Finn for a minute on how he hurt her feelings. Her tell was the way her eyes widened and she chewed her lower lip, a habit she’d learned from her heartless bastard of a father. “What did Mr. Brophy say about Tariq? Did he say how he knew Tariq’s Uncle Parvez? And isn’t it an amazing coincidence that Jeremy Brophy lives on Orcas Island?”
Finn didn’t believe in coincidences but he kept his thoughts to himself. He didn’t need another talk by Sophie on serendipity and synchronicity.
Sophie leaned forward, her eyes narrowing on his face. “I’m not sure what exactly is going on, but your last mission must have been a doozy.” She threw herself back in the seat. “Oops, I forgot. I’m not supposed to mention it. It’s classified.”
This was another reason Finn hadn’t declared his feelings for Sophie. She could never be a military wife, never tolerate all the classified secrets he had to keep. Oh, and Sophie was the daughter of a tech billionaire who was a press magnet. Not exactly a low-profile wife for a Special Forces undercover operator. Finn didn’t expect her father would ever approve of Finn’s prospects. And Finn never wanted to be the man who married her for money. For all those reasons he’d be hesitant about approaching Sophie. Yet since her kidnapping, he’d been battling all those negatives with the desire to keep her safe in his arms.
“Which is it? How badly you were injured or you don’t want to talk about your conversation with Jeremy Brophy?”
“With your skills, you should work for the CIA.”
It was hard to describe the way Sophie’s forehead bunched together and her shoulders tightened, still he always knew when he’d crossed a line.
“Finn, why are you being more of a jerk than usual?”
Because his wound was aching and the reunion he imagined with Sophie the entire time he was lying in the hospital was playing out with another man touching her, whispering sexy stuff into her ear.

  Available now! 


        After rummaging through her bag, Londyn settled on a black hooded sweatshirt with a penguin playing hockey on the front. One look in the mirror and she was good to go.
Her long braid, courtesy of Bailey and Bethany, swished behind her back as she ambled down the hallways, passing closed doors along her way. One of these days, I need to check these all out. Retrieving a slip of paper from her pocket, she studied it. Alfred had been kind enough to draw her a rough map of the estate, so she followed his directions until she reached a brightly lit formal dining room.
Stepping inside, she caught sight of Callum at the head of the table. Though he’d changed into slacks, a button-up shirt, and wore a different tie, he still looked ready to give a seminar about modern art. The spread on the table looked scrumptious, and her stomach growled in response. She hadn’t eaten since that morning, a mistake she wasn’t used to making.
“Oh, um, I didn’t know we dressed up for dinner,” she said, taking a seat between the girls. “Whoops.”
Bailey patted her hand. “It’s all right. Daddy likes to look nice all the time.”
Ouch. She smiled at the cutie in the same blue outfit as earlier. Even that looked dressy compared to her attire. “I guess I’m used to going with the flow. Abi and I never dress up for anything, much less dinner.”
“And Abi is your girlfriend? Or is it life partner or wife?” Callum’s accented voice asked, startling her. “I never remember which is politically correct these days.” 
Londyn shook her head. She hadn’t thought he was paying attention. “Oh no. I mean, she’s a girl who’s a friend—er, I mean she’s my best friend and we live together.” Her face was on fire. She’d never felt like she had to explain her situation before. 
“Ah, I see. That’s nice. Our last nanny eloped with her girlfriend after being together for twenty years. Perhaps you and Abi are the same?” Callum’s face was pinched in question, awaiting her fumbling reply. 
“No, nothing like that. I like guys,” she finally blurted, clearing the air.
Bailey giggled and clapped, while Bethany bit into a roll as if she was bored with the conversation.
Looking over, Londyn managed to catch a small smirk on Callum’s face before he masked it.
“Good to know,” he murmured, picking up a fork. “Wouldn’t want there to be any confusion there.”
Suddenly warm, she tore off her hoodie. It wasn’t until Bethany’s mouth dropped open and the roll fell out that she remembered she’d forgotten to put on a shirt underneath, too distracted with Abi’s talk of sex and kissing.
Gaze swiveling to Callum, she found the hue in his brown eyes darkened, his expression suddenly undiscernible. 
“My, my, I wasn’t informed you were a burlesque dancer as well,” a new voice clipped.
“Shit!” Londyn scrambled for the hoodie she now swore would be the death of her and yanked it on. “I, um—”
“Mary Archer,” the woman said, taking her seat to Callum’s left. “We spoke the other day on Skype.” Her brown eyes grazed over Londyn. “You had on more clothes then.”
Heat crept up Londyn’s neck and face until she wanted to rip the sweatshirt in two. “Yes, glad to meet you in person.”
Mary ignored her and turned her attention to the meal. “Ah, my favorite. Lamb stew. How’d you know?”
Callum took a sip of red wine. “I didn’t. You made the menu, Mother.”
Londyn bit back a smirk, but the girls openly giggled.
An hour later, Bailey and Bethany gave Londyn the grand tour of Archer House. She met the cook, Gloria, who happened to be Alfred’s wife, learned that Alfred’s name was actually Lionel Alfred, and discovered her new favorite spot in the house.
“Come on, Londyn. Let’s swim,” Bethany suggested, running toward the natatorium.
Stepping through the glass doors, Londyn bit her lip to keep from screaming with joy. With a retractable roof and walls, the pool could be both indoor and outdoor. She was officially in love.
“You don’t have a swim suit on,” she reminded the girl.
Bethany frowned. “True. How about we swim tomorrow? Daddy makes us take lessons each afternoon. I can show you what I know. I’m great at swimming underwater.”
Bailey tugged on her pants. “Me too, me too!”
Nodding, she walked to the glass walls. There was a perfect view of the mountains with enough privacy from the trees. There was no way the spot could be more serene.
“Sounds good to me.” She took both their hands. “I was a swimmer in high school, so maybe I can teach you a thing or two.”
Bailey jumped up and down while Bethany bobbed her head in agreement. The summer wouldn’t be too bad if there was a pool to swim laps in.
“Let’s go build a fort,” she said, racing for the door. She desperately needed to let off a little steam after the dinner fiasco. Both girls squealed in delight and followed her. 
Yeah, she would definitely enjoy her time at Archer House, with or without a summer fling.

Sometimes love's song needs rewinding.

Izzy

Best friends to soul mates to ... nothing. Since we are six, Dawson was the most important person in my life. He was my first everything. First friend, first boyfriend, first kiss, first love, first heartbreak. For years our love was a masterpiece. Then two years ago, he ghosted me. Now my world is grey. I'm finally trying to start over, to add muted colors back. Beckett has helped let the light back in. And he's ready to paint our future. But I'm not sure if I can give it to him, even if I owe him. Every time I consider moving forward my heart starts singing a familiar tune.

Dawson

Now I know why they call it falling in love. The splat at the end. I should've known better than to fall for my best friend. Because now I've lost my love, my friend and the inspiration for every song I ever wrote. I know the truth now about how it all ended, and I long to fix it. But there's a new man in her life. A good man. One who hasn't broken her heart and doesn't put her at risk by just being around. My head says I should love her enough to walk away. Too bad we don't love with our brains.

Best friends to lovers to heartbreak. To a second chance?

NOTE: This is PART THREE of Dawson and Izzy's epic love story. It is the conclusion. It can NOT be read without first reading Beats of the Heart and Notes of the Heart.
