I was born in a big city and grew up amid pavements, pigeons and the near-constant clamor of bumper-to-bumper traffic and testy pedestrians. In acknowledging my brick-and-asphalt background, my college roommate, who hailed from a small town filled with lush greenery, once actually said, "When did you see your first real tree and did you know what you were looking at?" She later insisted it was a joke, but since she seemed dead serious at the time, I still have my doubts. A writer and researcher, who has dealt with subjects as diverse as international organizations, multiple sclerosis, the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic and the Soviet Union (when there still was a Soviet Union), I enjoy taking long walks, visiting the Ancient Egyptian, Ancient Etruscan and dinosaur exhibits in museums, doing sudoku (but only the easy ones) and concocting stories about everyday people who laugh a lot, cry a little and ultimately find the happily-ever-after they deserve. At the moment, I still live in a big city, but now thanks to the diligence of the local Parks Department, I can always recognize a real tree when I see one.
Wyndi cannot believe that the man who had shown her so much passion and taught her how incredible a simple touch could be, could actually have kidnapped her and brought her back to his country. And now he’s accusing her of espionage and of profiting from selling his country’s secrets! Protecting her secrets, she refuses Tamar’s demands for the names of the buyers of the proprietary information, only angering him further. They are at an impasse. She refuses to tell him why she is hacking into his company and government files, and he refuses to release her until he has the information he demands.
Despite their conflict over her hacking, neither can forget the passion they shared and the love that had begun to blossom. It is this intense attraction that binds them together, even in the midst of their verbal sparring. When her secrets are revealed, will it cement their bond or destroy it?
Forced to actually talk, Grady and Olivia realize they can't stand each other. Forget another round in the bedroom—if it wasn't his apartment, she'd shove Grady outside to freeze. But with all the blistering sexual tension flying around, a second night with the hacker might be exactly what she needs...if they don't kill each other first.
