EXCERPT REVEAL ~ Claiming Felicity (Ace Security #4) by Susan Stoker

EXCERPT REVEAL 

Claiming Felicity

Ace Security Book 4

Susan Stoker


Release Date February 27, 2017

 


Falling in love could expose a woman in hiding, in the fourth Ace Security novel from New York Times bestselling author Susan Stoker.

Former mercenary Ryder Sinclair’s stunning discovery that he has three half brothers in Castle Rock, Colorado, is giving them all the chance to color in the spaces of their tragic pasts. For Ryder, establishing roots is made all the more desirable by Felicity Jones. But if Ryder’s instincts are correct, this breathtaking beauty is in trouble.

Castle Rock isn’t Felicity’s home. Like her false identity, it’s just a cover. All she wants is enough cash to keep moving to another temporary hideaway—to stay on the run from a secret that’s haunted her for years. As safe as Ryder’s strong embrace makes her feel, she fears that falling for him, and staying in Colorado, will put everyone she’s come to love in danger.

The more Ryder learns about Felicity, the more determined he is not to let her go. It’s time for her to stop running—even as a relentless danger closes in, threatening their love and their lives.

Excerpt 1

“What is up with the two of you?” Alexis asked quietly two hours later.

Felicity looked down at the baby in her arms so she didn’t have to look at Alexis and shrugged. “What do you mean?”

“Don’t play dumb, girl. You and Ryder have been stealing glances at each other all afternoon.

“It’s complicated,” Felicity told her.

“It’s really not,” Alexis argued.

“It is. Besides, I haven’t known him that long.”

“I knew the first time I saw Blake that he was the man for me,” Alexis said without a trace of self-consciousness.

Felicity gaped at her. “You did?”

“Yup. And he only saw me as an annoying younger chick who he had to work with.”

“There’s no way. He loves you.”

“He does,” Alexis agreed. “Now. But when he first met me, he thought I was a rich spoiled brat who was fucking around and only wanted to work at Ace Security for some reason he didn’t know or understand.”

“Wow. What changed?”

Alexis shrugged. “I guess he got to know me. Saw how much I enjoyed what I did. That I wasn’t going to up and quit.” She flipped her light-brown hair behind her shoulder and smirked. “Then he took a look at all this”—she indicated her curvy body with a hand—“and couldn’t resist.”

Both women chuckled.

“It’s different with me and Ryder. I think he’s just . . .” Felicity’s voice trailed off. She didn’t know what Ryder was. “He’s one of those guys who wants to make sure everyone is safe. He doesn’t like injustice.”



Excerpt 2

Ryder ran a hand through his hair, and he looked away from her for the first time. Felicity had been confused and nervous when she’d woken up, but it was nothing compared to how she was feeling now. A pit formed in her belly, and she felt her hands begin to shake. “What happened?” she asked in a whisper.

Ryder looked back at her then, and she felt Blake’s hand press into her calf. Felicity steeled herself.

“Nate is gone.”

Felicity blinked. “What?”

“Nate. Joseph drugged you, then entered your apartment and took Nate. We know it was him because the external cameras showed him clearly. Fucker even made a point to look up, straight into the lens, and smirk as he was leaving.”

“But you found him, right?”

Ryder merely shook his head.

Felicity stared at him for a moment, then her gaze swung to Blake. “Joseph has called, though, hasn’t he? To tell you how much money he wants?”

She felt Ryder’s finger on her chin as he gently forced her to look at him. “Joseph hasn’t called, love. Nate’s been gone for twenty hours. We don’t know where he is and have no leads.”

Felicity blinked. Then promptly began to hyperventilate. This was her worst fear come to life. Someone else she loved had been hurt because of her. Grace and Logan had to be devastated. God, the twins had been put under her care, and she’d failed them. Utterly. Tears sprang to her eyes, and there was no way she could hold them back. Not hiding them or even trying to wipe them away, Felicity looked up at Ryder helplessly.
