The job should have been easyâ€”patrol a swank beach that serves as a backyard for Mauiâ€™s rich, kick out the riffraff, and get a tan in the process. But rent-a-cop Samantha Winters didnâ€™t anticipate a deliciously grumpy cop, Sergeant Grady Roark, who comes down to the beach to bust her chops and instead leaves her breathlessâ€¦and wondering why the one man who could help her seems determined to thwart her at every turn.
Grady is keeping secrets from Sam that have him walking the line between attraction and duty. But when Sam becomes the target of a shadowy organization, Grady will have to choose between the law and the temptation of a woman who has him breaking every rule heâ€™s ever known.
The job should have been easy, but when the bullets start flying, Sam learns nothing is as easy as it seems when youâ€™re a Gun for Hire.
â€œThe sunlight was intense after a half hour in that gloomy space, but I squinted hard and kept moving toward a narrow set of steps down to the parking lot. Grady walked a few paces behind me, and if he heard the crinkle of paper as I moved, he elected not to say anything.
Grady hit the remote to his truck and grabbed for the passenger side door, his hand light on my elbow as he helped me up. Paper crackled as my butt hit the seat and Gradyâ€™s eyes narrowed. Without a word, he slammed my door and went around to the driverâ€™s side, climbing up into the cab and stabbing the keys into the ignition.
â€œSo, Iâ€”â€ I hesitated as I shifted in my seat and my movement was accompanied by the distinct sound of cardboard bending.
â€œNo,â€ Grady muttered, and clicked on the radio. â€œNo talking.â€
â€œShh.â€ Grady put a finger to his lips, his eyes still on the road. â€œAny minute youâ€™re going to tell me about the felony crime you just committed. And then Iâ€™m going to have to deal with the fact that I was an accessory to a felony crime.”
â€œUmm, yeah.â€ I reached around to the back of my pants and eased the file folder up from my waistband, working it out slowly so as to not lose anything as Grady headed up the hillside toward his house. As I brought it around to look at it, the red block letters damning me to years of incarceration should I get caught, a muscle ticked in Gradyâ€™s jaw.
â€œYou stole classified documents.â€ He shook his head from side to side.
I looked up at Grady and then down at the mangled file with the red Top Secret heading. I took a corner of the front sheet and ripped across the width of the page, separating the words â€œTop Secretâ€ from the rest of the paper.
â€œTheyâ€™re declassified now.â€ I crumpled up the classification and shoved it in my pocket.
I shrugged and opened the file.â€
