The Teams trained me to be a killer. War taught me to be ruthless. Then an ill-fated mission proved I was human. Combat wounded, The Navy cut me loose. I had a choice. Fade into obscurity or use the skills I had.
Alpha Elite Security was born and three years later, my company was the most sought after security contractor in the world. Five global locations, ten company jets, every one of my employees military trained—we were the best of the best. Overseeing operations, I didn’t have time for women, or anything other than growing my company. My success rate unmatched, I’d never lost a client.
Then I got a call, the only call that would get me back in the field. She was missing. The woman I’d left behind seven years ago. Now I had one objective.
Code name: Alpha.
Ignoring the glances from women shopping by themselves, I cut across the front of the market and rounded the corner on the last aisle.
Then I stopped dead in my tracks.
Blonde, ethereal, delicate, and more beautiful than I remembered, the only woman I’d ever loved stood mere feet away from me in a pale green dress.
Staring, my heart pounding, the air in my lungs nonexistent, all I could think was how unforgivably selfish I’d been on the worst day of her life.
I deserved her hate, but I told myself that was seven years ago. Time was on my side, and it’d been long enough. She had to forgive me.
Make the move.
As if sensing my presence, she suddenly looked over her shoulder, her gaze landing exactly where I stood.
But she didn’t look up at me.
Not all the way.
Her head slightly dipped, her gaze cast down as if staring at my legs, her emerald green eyes didn’t meet mine.
I stepped forward.
