…but all she found was anger.
Why did Eden hate her?
The memory of that day haunted her. Eden told her to stay at the safe house while his team went on their mission. Then she found out he was being setup. Shylah didn’t have a choice, she had to do something.
It was a risk.
And she paid dearly.
Eden and his team had aborted just in time. They lived to fight another day. Fourteen months later and Eden was surviving. There was only one question on his mind, who had betrayed them?
Could it have been Shylah?
In the complex world of international espionage and war, love is often a causality. What will it take for her to conquer the mistrust and win him back?
You’ll adore this military romance, because the truth can be hard to believed when all you’ve know are lies.
Get it now.
Pushing his chair back, Eden stood in front of Shylah, towering over her. For the first time since she arrived in Marble Falls, his size didn’t intimidate her. There was nothing this man could do to hurt her that was more painful than his low opinion.
“If you didn’t hide things from me, I wouldn’t have to guess what the hell was going on.”
Done with the conversation, Shylah marched to the door and pulled it open. “Well, you guessed wrong.”
Eden remained where he was for a moment, leading Shylah to wonder if he would leave. She knew full well that if Eden didn’t want to go, then she wouldn’t be able to force him. Then he started moving toward the door. Shylah didn’t know whether to be hurt or happy that he was leaving.
“Did it ever occur to you that the thing I’m hiding is to protect you? To protect us until I’m ready to share?”
Stopping in his tracks, Eden turned his head. Some of the anger had faded, and resignation shined through. “There is no us, Shylah. You’ve made damn sure of that.”
Then he was gone.
Shutting the door behind him, Shylah leaned against it and scrunched her eyes shut. The pain in her chest was crippling. Was that true? Had she damaged them with her secrets to the point of no return?
She had believed that they were strong enough to get through anything. Maybe they’d always been more fragile than she’d thought.
