About the Book:
Praise for the Red Zone
series: “Imaginative, totally preposterous and I absolutely loved
every word!” – Marta, Goodreads
In a future where corporations and nanotech implants run the world, Mace Armstrong is in the wrong place at the wrong time… Literally.
The mission is simple: find a way into CommTECH’s state-of-the-art compound, bug the lead scientist of their bio-engineering team before they release an implant that will kill millions, get out without anyone knowing he’s there. For an ex-army ranger, even one out of his element by a century, it should be a walk in the park. Right?
Because Mace isn’t the only one who breaks into the secure facility. With the building overrun with terrorists, he has to find a way out before he compromises himself and the entire Red Zone team to the enemy.
But there’s no leaving without the woman who inadvertently helped him get into the building in the first place: Keiko Sato, CommTECH’s press secretary. She’s brilliant, beautiful, and knows how to hold a grudge. Against him. She has no idea what secrets he and his team are harboring, or that she’s calling to the animal that’s been locked inside of him for a century.
Even as she argues with him about everything, Mace is determined to protect her. He got her into this mess, and he owes it to her to get her out of it.
Whether she wants him to or not.
Her eyes narrowed at him. “Do you need to be so sarcastic?”
“No. It’s just an added bonus. You get it free with the rescue.”
“You’re rescuing me? I don’t think so. You’re just protecting your interests. It will be a helluva lot easier to get out of this building without Enforcement shooting at you if you have the company’s press secretary at your side.”
“Whatever.” Great, now he sounded like a teenager. She brought out all of his best qualities.
Of course, she called him on it. “Mature. I don’t need you protecting me, and I don’t want to have anything more to do with you. Just go. Save yourself.”
He’d had enough. He spun away from the panel and leaned into her. “You do not want me to go, princess. You wouldn’t last five minutes without me.”
Her dark eyes blazed as she stood to face off against him. “I can look after myself.” She paused, her eyes fluttering away from him in a sure tell that she was about to lie. “I know Kung Fu.”
“Sure you do.”
A look of rage swept over her face, and in a furious move, she swung her leg hard to kick him. Only, her dress was too tight, and the momentum swept her other leg out from under her. She landed on her back, on the floor, with a thud.
Mace looked down at her. “Yeah. You’re right. You can totally look after yourself.”
She blinked up at him for a few seconds. “I can’t think of anything to say that will make this seem less humiliating.”
He let out a sigh. “Neither can I.” He reached down and helped her to her feet. “Anything broken?”
“Then we’re good to go. Unless, you want to try some more Kung Fu moves on me.” “Turns out, you can’t do Kung Fu in a dress. Who knew?”
