DEA agent Eve Taylor has had her fill of alpha males. When Resolutions’ operative and former lover, Dillon “Mac” McKenna, threatened her hard-earned independence, she ran. On a mission to gather evidence against a Colombian drug-lord, Eve discovers the drug-lord is helping terrorists plan an attack on American soil. Before she can escape with the vital information, she’s captured and comes face to face with her mortality…
As a teen, Mac watched his family fall apart after his mother died doing dangerous U.N. work. The possibility of losing Eve to a mission ignited an overwhelming need to protect her. When he forced her to choose him or her job, she walked away. Two years later, it seems all his nightmares have come true and he’s tasked with rescuing her from a Colombian prison. Mac has never stopped loving Eve, but does he dare risk his heart when he’s so terrified of losing…
On the run, Mac and Eve must learn to trust each other again in order to stay alive.
Occasional bursts of gunfire echoed in the distance as the distorted voices of Mendoza’s men moved closer. The damned monkey started chattering again. She flipped onto her back and forced her breathing and heart rate to slow. The night’s stars faded into the orange-red sky of morning sunrise and a welcomed calm washed over her. For the first time in her life, Eve wished she was still back home in Duncan Falls, Iowa with her four overprotective brothers. The Alpha Four, she called them. They’d be royally pissed if she didn’t somehow get out of this mess.
Her mind turned to thoughts of Mac, the only man she’d ever loved. Maybe he’d been right after all. Maybe she wasn’t cut out for this line of work. Maybe she did need him. So many maybes.
Eve closed her eyes and the maybes and darkness took her.
Character Interview with Eve Taylor. Resolutions.
E: I’m running from Mac’s distorted idea of commitment. He expects me to be the ‘little woman’ who lets him control my life and smothers me with protection. I prefer to pull on my big girl panties, play by my own rules, and make decisions for myself. With Mac, it’s his way, or the highway. Fortunately for me, I have one hell of a fast car.
I: Have you ever thought of being in a relationship with a non-alpha type of man?
E: Yes. The problem is I find any other type man to be boring. As frustrating as Mac is at times, there’s never a dull moment when he’s around. I like when a man knows what he wants and goes for it. I don’t like when he thinks he knows what’s best for me. I guess I want it all.
I: What do you mean when you say your independence is hard-earned?
E: My parents died when I was young, leaving my older brothers to raise me. I called them the Alpha Four. They were over the top controlling. I know they were just doing what they thought was best for me, but jeez, did one of them always have to be looking over my shoulder? The boys in my high school were afraid to date me. No guy wanted to take a girl out whose brothers were going to give him the third degree before, during, and after a date. And yes, the Alpha Four had a strange way of showing up wherever my date took me. Talk about a sad dating life!
I: What drew you to the dangerous work of a DEA Agent?
E: I think after growing up with the Alpha Four, I was ready to take on the world as soon as I could get away from them. My choice of college was solely driven by how many miles I could put between Duncan Falls, Iowa and the campus. I wanted to prove just how tough I really was. Working for the DEA is about as tough as it gets!
I: What job will you do when you can no longer be the best in your current job?
E: You’re assuming I won’t always be the best?
I: Sorry, my bad!
E: No problem.
I: Have you ever worked as part of a team?
E: Yes. When I was promoted to field agent I went in as part of the International Drug Enforcement Agency—IDEA. About a year later, I was assigned my own team.
I: You’re proud of your birth place, Duncan Falls, Iowa. Why?
E: Duncan Falls is a small town and very close knit. After my parents died, the town’s people were almost as protective of me as the Alpha Four. Poor little Eve. Lost her parents at such a young age. At times, between my brothers and the town, I felt smothered, like I couldn’t take a breath without being watched. On the flip side, I found it a bit comforting to know I could always count on the town to have my back. Okay, I’ll admit it, I’m glad my brothers were there for me, too. Just don’t ever tell them I said that!
I: Tell me 3 positive things about you ex-lover, Mac.
E: 1.) Mac is by far, the hottest man I’ve ever known. My toes curl just thinking about him.
2.) The man is a god in bed!
3.) Did I mention Mac is HOT?
Teri Riggs was destined to be a writer. As a small girl she didn’t read bedtime stories, she made up her own. Who needed Little Red Riding Hood or The Three Little Pigs when there were so many great tales bouncing around in her head? When she grew up and became a mother to three little girls, she continued the tradition of making up bedtime stories. On the occasions she chose to tell conventional fairytales, Teri usually gave them a bit of tweaking here and there or added a new ending. Her girls loved it.
After her daughters had the nerve to actually grow up and leave home, Teri discovered she had a passion for writing and jumped right in. It came as no surprise she chose to write mysteries and happily-ever-after’s since that’s the genres she loves to read.
Teri lives in Marietta, Georgia with her husband, one of her daughters and two dogs that seem to think they rule the world. And some days Teri thinks maybe they do.
Teri still frequently tells herself stories as she falls asleep. The only difference now is she wakes up the next morning and turns her bedtime stories into books.
