Mikayla Martin had lived a sheltered life, designing bridal and evening gowns for a living. She worked hard and with the help of her best friend Deidre Maple, life was good. Everything went downhill on the day Mikayla witnessed a murder. Now she’s being shot at, after sticking her nose into places she shouldn’t, and unfortunately there’s nowhere left to run.
Nikolai Steele an Elite Ops Agent, has been asked by an old comrade to prove he’s no killer, despite being mistaken for one. It all seems very simple at first, but finding the real killer, while protecting the fiery woman accusing his friend has become very complicated.
The suspense is very high in this tale, with the renegade trying to please so many different people. Behind the murder mystery there is a very hot romance going on, with well crafted sex scenes that almost burn the pages. The passion is high risk, as they try to work out who really murdered Eddie Forman. If it wasn’t Mikayla or Maddix, there had to be an explanation, and Nik is going to fix it, no matter how long it takes.
The tension level is permanently high, in this a high stakes story. As love grows Nik’s boss wants him back in the field, but he won’t leave the woman he loves while the killer is on the loose.
RENEGADE is a love story with a different slant, as murder and mayhem are almost bed partners in this interesting tale.
