Title: Secrets And Assumptions

Author: Jane Drager

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Book Blurb:

Teegan Smith, a bona fide genius, never intended to hide her identity, but Budd Richardson’s assumptions about women got a bit under her skin. From the beginning, the attraction between them is strong. Teegan and Budd feel it…and Budd's stalker sees it. As a special ops agent for the FBI, Teegan is assigned to help capture the stalker, a dangerous killer whose body count rises with each encounter. She struggles in a triple role of protecting Budd, maintaining the secrecy of her job, and fighting an overwhelming desire to bed the man. The stalker sees through Teegan's charade and goes after her with a vengeance. A setup to capture the stalker turns into a disaster. Now more than ever will her training be put to the test. She must risk her very existence to defeat a criminal mastermind and race to save the man she loves.


Teegan stepped into the light, pistol ready.

Anna’s head shot up. Hatred flashed in her dark eyes while her smile disappeared into a nervous quiver. She's not so cocky while staring at the barrel of a gun.

“I knew you weren't dead, Miss Fancy Pants, but there was no way I could descend the ravine and expect to get out with a bad arm.”

“I wondered about that.”

Anna's gun hand shook as she leveled it at Budd. “You have a nasty habit of foiling my plans. The agents secured the house and barn when they arrived. How did you get in?”

“I anticipated. Budd had instructions to unlock a back window the moment he arrived.” Every muscle in her body strained to pop through the skin from the rage of seeing Rommel and now Budd covered with blood. She approached, gun still aimed at Anna's head. “You're finished, Anna.”

Anna's gaze darted to the door. “Don't take another step, or I put a bullet into Budd's chest.”

Teegan stopped. “You know I won't let you do that.” Her finger itched to squeeze the trigger. Come on, bitch. Make my day. She glanced at Budd who stared with wide, blue eyes. Surprise, surprise.

The copter sound increased.

Sweat formed on Anna's brow as her gaze shot from the door to the ceiling to Teegan. “They weren't supposed to come.” She stepped closer to Budd, her glare never leaving Teegan. “Did you get on Budd's radio?” Her eyes widened, and she gasped. “That was the strange tapping I heard!”

“A simple signal, Anna. Now, drop the gun.”

“You won't kill me. You don't have the guts.”

“Try me, bitch.”

Anna swung the barrel of her gun toward Teegan.

Teegan squeezed the trigger and fired.
