Exchange of Fire by PA DePaul

Faking her death was easy, living with her past is harder, but nothing is more dangerous than falling in love…

Sandra Walsh was a deadly sniper for the Sweet Briar Group, a covert agency with assassins for hire, until her last mission went horribly wrong, accidentally killing an innocent girl. Knowing she’s a danger to her team, Sandra goes off the grid, becoming a Shade—an agent declared dead but secretly hiding among the living. She intends to honor her vow never to pull another trigger or have contact with the spy world again. Until she meets Casper Grady…

Grady is a former Marine with a troubled past and a debt to pay. His life mission has gone from protecting the nation to helping local children and their families. The moment he meets Sandra, he knows there’s more to her than meets the eye, but he can’t help but be drawn to the mysterious femme fatale. And when Sandra’s past suddenly catches up to her, Grady is determined to protect her at all costs, no matter how dark and dangerous her secrets are.

As the danger increases, so does their intense attraction. But when they’re forced to choose between each other and the people they’ve sworn to protect, their growing love might not be enough to keep them together—or alive…

Sandra scoped the area again but saw nothing. Her intuition told her the gunman was gone, but where would he have disappeared to? Their little jaunt into the police station shouldn’t have been enough to chase the operative away. Especially one of SBG’s ilk. She hated to admit it, but his sudden departure made her more nervous than his firing at them. At least then she knew what he was up to.

She slowed the pace to an easy, steady jog. Grady fell in step beside her and stayed silent as they moved through the side streets. She took as many alleys as she could and even doubled back twice, but still felt nothing.

“My turn to lead,” he said as he increased his speed.
