Shadow Alpha is the third, and full-length novel, in USA Today Bestselling author Carole Mortimer’s HOT new ALPHA series. Sizzling contemporary romance with an added dash of danger.
Stories of dark and compelling ALPHA men, who are used to taking what they want when they want it, and the strong and determined women who have no intention of being taken. Unless it’s on their own terms...
Dair Grayson runs a worldwide security company, and with his military background he’s the perfect choice when Gregori Markovic, a boss of London’s criminal underworld, needs someone to go and find, and if necessary rescue his sister. Straightforward enough, it’s what Dair does, after all. Only trouble is, Dair hasn’t seen Kat for 15 years, and his affectionate memories of her as a coltish fifteen-year-old in no way prepare him for the beautiful woman Kat has become.
Kat has given up hope of being rescued from the hell in which she’s been incarcerated for weeks. The arrival of Dair Grayson changes all that. But Dair is no longer that devil-may-care teenager she remembers from so long ago, but has become a hardened and scarred warrior. A warrior who is determined to rescue her, from herself, if necessary.
On the run from Kat’s ex-husband, the two of them are thrown together constantly, and Dair finds it harder and harder to resist this hot and sexy grown-up Kat. Except he doesn’t do forever, and he learned his lesson long ago when it came to dark-eyed beauties like Katya Markovic, and has the scars to prove it.
Kat doesn’t want forever either, she’s only interested in the here and now. And what she wants now is Dair, and for the two of them to satisfy the hot and explosive sexual tension between them until it’s time for her to start running again.
The only problem is, Kat’s ex-husband is now looking for both of them...
Author Note—The novellas and full-length novels in the ALPHA series have sexier situations and stronger language than my other books.
