Global Security Unlimited
At twenty-five, American graduate student Cressida Taylor lost control of her borrowed bicycle. She barreled into a tall, gorgeous undergraduate, Max Grant, on a busy Oxford street. Her skirt caught in the chain, Cress flew over the handlebars and landed on top of him. Assured that only his dignity was injured, she scurried away.
Twenty years later Cress has moved on from the embarrassment of her Oxford encounter. Now a successful author, she‘s been nominated for a prestigious writing award. Her career is threatened when a rival accuses her of plagiarism. When Max turns up at a book signing and wants to renew their acquaintance, she isn’t sure whether to fall into his arms or run like hell.
As a MI6 operative, Max believed his career made lasting relationships impossible. Now working for a global security company, he must let go of his past beliefs if he wants a future with Cress. As their relationship deepens, Max feels driven to protect Cress as the persecution escalates to physical danger. They must learn to work together if they want to stop her tormentor and find their happy ending.
Max Grant finally has the girl of his dreams but his past roars back with a vengeance when he is tagged by a Turkish terrorist seeking revenge for an event ten years ago.
Max finds his past roaring into the present when a terrorist escapes from a Turkish prison, vowing revenge. Working with an old rival from his days in MI6, Max seeks for his elusive foe. From London, to the Scottish highlands, Paris, and Istanbul, a deadly game of cat and mouse may keep the lovers apart—permanently.
