Alyssa Eastman is engaged to the man of her dreams. Jason is smart, attractive, and he makes her laugh. When the couple is attacked by a group of men who call Jason by the wrong name, shoot holes in his beautiful car, and try to run them off the road, Alyssa learns her perfect fiancé is also the perfect spy. With his cover blown, the only way to bring down an international terrorist group is for Alyssa to steal the information. She agrees to help, putting her life on the line; but, putting her heart on the line and marrying a man who lied to her about his identity (albeit for national security – but still!!) is a much harder decision.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
This whole book came out of the idea for the Las Vegas wedding scene. I had that scene planned out long before I knew how I was going to get Alyssa and Jason to Las Vegas. It was such a fun idea – that I just had to write the book.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
I know many women who are smart as a whip and beautiful too. Alyssa isn’t based on any one of them, but the idea that a woman can be confident and strong and still turn to mush when kissed by the right guy.
Jason took a little longer to flush out. To be honest, I wrote his car before I ever got around to writing him. But, when I asked myself, “What kind of a guy drives a Dodge Viper with bulletproof windows?” I had him.
“What are you doing?” I screamed as Jason careened backward down a one-way street.
“Staying alive.” Jason revved through a yellow light.
Two black SUVs pulled up on our right. Each man had a gun. I whipped my head around, praying my new fiancé and I would survive this crazy turn of events.
Jason took the next left, swinging us in a 180 that had us facing the right direction and moving fast. A minivan – horn blaring – swerved to avoid the back bumper.
“Jason, what is going on?”
“I couldn’t tell you before, and I shouldn’t be telling you now …”
