Signet / June 2, 2015 / $7.99 print & digital
“For those who enjoy their romantic suspense on the dark and steamy side,”* here’s the blisteringly sexy new novel in the Killer Instincts series by the author of Midnight Action and Midnight Pursuits...
Former CIA agent Bailey Jones has spent months trying to forget her night of passion with mercenary Sean Reilly. An elite and methodical assassin, she has no room in her life for a reckless, rule-breaking Irishman, and she’s vowed to steer clear of the tempting bad boy who lured her into his bed under false pretenses.
When Sean is implicated in the robbery of a Dublin bank, Bailey knows something isn’t right. So what if she can’t trust him? There’s no way Sean would end up on the wrong side of the law. In fact, he’s stuck in the middle of a dark and dirty conspiracy that could put his twin brother’s life at risk with one wrong move. And Bailey’s life too when she agrees to help.
As the stakes are raised and Bailey finds herself torn between two brothers, the fine line between danger and desire is crossed…and it’ll take more than a killer instinct to survive.
*New York Times bestselling author Christy Reece
In Elle Kennedy’s latest Killer Instinct novel, Midnight Captive, Sean Reilly is the man who has all the information. He can dig up everything on anyone. There are no secrets that you can keep from him. But right now he is stuck between his old life and the one he wants and he wishes someone had the answer to his problem.
Sean is being forced to rob a bank for his former boss, Eamon “Rabbit” O’Hare, the leader of the IRA faction group, the Irish Daggers. Rabbit is holding Sean’s twin brother, Ollie, as insurance that Sean gets him the information being kept in one of the safety deposit boxes. Sean and Ollie’s father was a staunch supporter of the cause before he died. He brought Sean and Ollie in as young men, but they soon realized they weren’t interested in following their father’s footsteps.
As he’d gotten older, he’d come to understand the politics behind it, but the cause hadn’t interested him and Ollie. They’d left Dublin to work as mercenaries, eventually becoming some of the most sought-out information dealers on the map, and neither one of them had looked back.
But the past has a funny way of dragging you back in.
