Deception by Jennifer Felton
☆ Micah ☆
I had it all.
I owned my own company by the time I was 24 and two years later I met the man of my dreams.
Or, at least, I thought I had.
But as I stood in the small room in the back of the church, I looked in the mirror and didn’t even recognize the woman in the wedding dress who stared back at me.
It was supposed to be the happiest day of my life. It was my wedding day.
But it was a nightmare.
Worse. It was a lie.
At least, according to the file I had been handed twenty minutes earlier that contained documents showing James Alexander wasn’t who he said he was.
I’m supposed to walk down the aisle in fifteen minutes and pledge my life to the man I love.
Instead, I’m wondering what sort of game he’s been playing.
Was this a ruse? Was I one of his intended targets?
Did the person leaving me the threats hire him to kill me? Or were they perhaps warnings about the man I was about to pledge myself to.
But when I go to confront James, he’s gone.
I’m left to try and explain why I was left at the altar and figure out who my fiance was and where he was.
☆ James ☆
When I got involved with Micah, it wasn’t supposed to mean anything. She was a cover, a lie to hide behind while I kept my head down.
I was never supposed to fall in love with her.
Then my past caught up with me right before our wedding. I discovered she was getting threats and that someone had discovered who I really was.
With no one to trust, and afraid of Micah getting hurt, I flee.
When I take a job on the other side of the country, I never expect to run into Micah.
And damn, she looks good. California suits her.
Though the terror on her face when she sees me, doesn’t. Any hope I had of fixing us instantly falls away.
Then someone takes a shot. I can’t tell if it’s intended for her or me, but either way, my cover’s been blown and now I have to protect the woman I love at all costs.
Whoever is trying to hurt her is going to wish they never crossed me.
