Jake Shaw has accumulated a lot of bad karma in his lifetime. As a child, he and his siblings were recruited by the infamous Goren Petrovich, forced to do unspeakable deeds at his hand, often never knowing just what harm they were inflicting on others until it was too late. Now he’s determined to right some of the wrongs he’s unwittingly committed. As an agent for The Alliance, a security organization specializing in the sort of cases no government agency can or will take on, Jake gets the job done, no matter the obstacles. But when he’s sent to track down beautiful, rogue CIA agent, Tessa Graham, he suddenly finds himself caught in a web of deception that even he couldn't have anticipated. Memories from the past threaten to overtake his current mission as he wades through lies and suspicions…and in the end it may be more than just karma that's out to get him.
ABOUT THE HARD TARGETS TRILOGY:
Goren Petrovich was an infamous KOS agent in war-torn Yugoslavia, know for his ability to turn orphaned children into highly trained government assassins. One of his most notable protégées was Anya Danielovich (from the novel PLAY NICE by Gemma Halliday). But after the KOS disbanded and Petrovich fled to the U.S., he continued his training "academy"—this time for personal profit. Three of his talented U.S. pupils: Sabrina, Jake, and Max Shaw. But when the siblings break from his grasp and attempt to start over, living normal lives that have nothing to do with guns, death, or lies, they learn that you can never really escape your past...

Between teaching college classes, trying to get her morbidly obese cat to slim down, and tempering the will of her five-year-old granddaughter, who's determined to become a witch when she turns six so she can fly on her broom to see the Eiffel Tower and put hexes on people—not necessarily in that order—somehow Wendy still manages to fit in writing. She spends the remainder of her days inflicting mayhem on her hero and heroine until they beg for mercy.
