He holds her life in his hands...

Accused of murder and of stealing a lethal government microchip, SSU agent Kai Paterson finally has a lead on the true location of the chip. If he finds it before the government and the criminal elements chasing him, he has a chance to clear his name. But the chip has been implanted in the body of an innocent woman.

Susana Dias is an internationally renowned archaeologist excavating the most significant dig of her career. When someone tries to kill her in order to get the microchip she’s unaware is inside her, Susana accepts Kai’s help in getting out of the jungle alive.

Kai knows he must retrieve the chip and get it into safe hands, but removing the chip could kill Susana. Now he’s forced to make a choice–protect the woman he loves or retrieve the chip.

The second book in the action-packed Surgical Strike Unit (SSU) romantic thriller series.

About the Author:

Vanessa Kier spends way too much time thinking up ways she can torture her characters. A worst-case scenario thinker, she's been creating stories in her head since childhood. Now she’s found her niche in writing romantic thrillers that combine intense emotion with action-packed plots. The author of six books in The Surgical Strike Unit series about a privately run special operations group, she has set her new series WAR in West Africa, where she lived for a time.

When she’s not writing, listening to music, or playing puzzle games on her mobile device, Vanessa writes the occasional Tech Talk column for her local RWA chapter's newsletter and takes long hikes in the nearby hills.
