Welcome to my post for the Whatever It Takes book tour! I have an excerpt coming up, as well as a giveaway for a copy of If You Only Knew, a previous book in the series. But, first, allow me to introduce the book:

Release date: August 12, 2014
Publisher: Avon Impulse
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Series: Trust No One #4

Assassin Alex Morgan will do anything to save an innocent life - especially if it means rescuing a child from a hell like the one she endured.

But going undercover as husband and wife, with none other than the disarmingly sexy Detective Nate Sanders, may be a little more togetherness than she can handle. She’s used to working alone, and no man is going to change that - not even a man who makes her heart pound and her defenses crumble with just a touch.

Nate has dodged more than a few bullets over the years, but fighting his attraction for Alex may be the bullet that does him in. Still, Nate’s determined to help her find the missing kid. There’s no doubt in his mind that they’re walking straight into danger, but Nate’s willing to face anything if it means protecting Alex. She might have been on her own once, but Nate has one more mission: to stay by her side - forever.


There was no sign of Goliath or his shotgun behind the counter, or anywhere else in the bar, but Nate wasn’t taking any chances thistime. He cleared the main room according to procedure before he stopped in the center and lowered his gun.

The hooker peeked over top the bar, recognition flooding her taut face. She straightened and pointed toward the back room. “They left.”

“How long ago?”

“Three or four minutes maybe. That creep who was doing all the talking, two of the big guys, and the bartender.” She lowered her voice. “Ithink he was one of them.”

Nate’s gaze swept the bar room. The two knife victims lay unmoving. Apparently, the drunk on his stool hadn’t been disturbed byanything going on around him. Nate swung back to the woman. “I think you’re right. What’s your name, sweetheart?”


“You stay right here, Savannah.” He quickly checked the bathrooms, the back room, and the alley before re- turning to the bar, whereSavannah was pouring herself a drink and offered him one. He raised his hand to stop her from pouring into the glass she’d set up for him.

The sirens were closer now. Soon the place would be crawling with cops. Nate strode to the door, stepped outside, and drew Alex in withhim. Blue and red lights reflected off the interior walls as cruisers raced down the block.

Alex looked straight ahead, never glancing to the right where the two wounded men lay. She pinched his arm in a death grip, and when heglanced at her face, she seemed desperate to hide the fear that widened her gold-flecked eyes. What had her so scared? Surely it wasn’tdeath. If the story he’d heard was true, death had ceased to bother her a long time ago. Cops? Being locked away? That made sense,considering her history. It wouldn’t happen on his watch though.
Up for grabs is a copy of If You Only Knew, a previous book in the series.
Good luck!
