November 29, 2016
Available in: e-Book (reprint)
For Nora Medina it started when she was yanked off a gorgeous Hawaiian beach, still in her bikini top, and onto her ex-husband's government jet. A microbiologist doesn't see a lot of emergency extractions, but marriage to Deacan Devlin McDougall taught her plenty about adrenaline. Nora knows it's more than their unfinished business that has brought the sexy, maddening Scot back into her life. But she'd never have guessed this.
As a soldier of fortune, Deke has seen too much by any standards. But the terrifying bacterium sneaking through the highest halls of power isn't his kind of battle. All he can do is keep close to his brilliant, fiery Nora and fight like hell to keep her safe. Because if he lets her get sucked down by the horror that's coming, he'll never get another chance at her heart . . .
Originally published September 2015 in the ON THE HUNT mass market paperback anthology for Zebra Books.
New York Times bestselling author Rebecca Zanetti has published over twenty-five dark paranormals, romantic suspense, and contemporary romances, and her books have appeared multiple times on several of the bestseller lists. She has received a Publisher Weekly Starred Review for Wicked Edge, Romantic Times Reviewer Choice Nominations for Forgotten Sins and Sweet Revenge, and RT Top Picks for several of her novels. She believes strongly in luck, karma, and working her butt off...and she thinks one of the best things about being an author, unlike the lawyer she used to be, is that she can let the crazy out. Rebecca attended Pepperdine University, earning a bachelor's degree in Journalism with a Political Science emphasis. While there she worked as the Editor-in-Chief of The Graphic newspaper, was a member of the Pi Phi Sorority, and an intern for President Reagan, who still gave 3-5 speeches a week, even though he was no longer president. After college, Rebecca worked as an art curator and a Senate aide before heading to law school, where she received her Juris Doctorate from the University of Idaho. She married Tony Zanetti in the middle of her second year of law school and became pregnant with their first child during the third year. She graduated law school, gave birth three weeks later, and took the Bar Exam three weeks after that. All she remembers about the bar exam is that it was so quiet in the testing room, she thought about taking a quick nap. But she continued on, passed the bar and became a lawyer. She worked for a large firm, then a small firm, then the county while also teaching legal classes at her local community college. Now she writes romances about vampires, cowboys, and soldiers. Her current series are: The Scorpius Syndrome, The Realm Enforcers, the Dark Protectors, the Sin Brothers, and Blood Brothers. Follow Rebecca: Website | Blog | Twitter | Facebook | Newsletter
