True Deceptions

by Veronica Forand


GENRE: Romantic Suspense



After his partner was murdered, Simon Dunn was done with MI6. But the cold, violent world of British intelligence never lets anyone go free. Now Simon has been blackmailed into a new job…with a beautiful new partner who’s going to get them both killed.

Robotics expert Cassie Watson is a newbie field agent with as much sophistication as…well, a pacifist, vegan computer nerd. Now she’s abruptly thrust into the cutthroat world of espionage with a partner who is as cold as he is brutally-and brutishly-handsome.

But when their mission is betrayed from the inside, Cassie will be forced to place her life in the hands of the one man who’s anything but trustworthy…




“How can I delay a plane from landing? Streak across the runway.”

He shook his head as though trying to rid his mind of that image. “As much as I’d love to see you naked, I’d prefer if you remained in the car. Clothes optional. Get into the website for the European Aviation Safety Agency. There’s an override to the tower and approach voice communication system for every airport in the EU. It was an experimental program. France protested the intrusion on its autonomy, but the system was never completely eliminated. Mess things up enough so no one can land. Nothing big, just a short delay. There aren’t many planes coming in at this time of night anyway.”

“How much time do I have?”

“Ten minutes.”

Ten? She’d need more than that to locate the program, never mind override it. She’d hacked into many government agencies and found information for MI6 without leaving a trace of her presence, but she’d never had such a small window of time. What if she did it wrong?

She shook her head. “I can’t do this.”

Simon lowered his eyebrows. “You can’t do the first major task I give you?”

“I…ah…don’t have a computer.”

“Here.” He handed her the black tote.

Sure enough, inside was a small laptop with a satellite link. “You don’t understand. I could mess this up.”

“Remove the computer from the bag and turn it on.” His voice lulled her into compliance.

When she had everything set up, he touched her chin. “EASA. And I need this completed in seven minutes now.”

She typed in the website he provided to her and then looked for a backdoor. Nothing obvious.

The man in the black suit rapped on the window. Simon opened it a crack.

“Where are they?” Simon asked.

“They’re on final approach, and we have about twenty cases left.” The man spoke in a strong Eastern European accent. Russian?

“Give me five minutes.”

Five minutes? Her stomach twisted, but her concentration remained focused.

She finally made her way inside. Everything was organized. She located the specific program, which listed over a hundred airports, and then paused. In reality, she had no idea how to shut down the communications of one airport in one specific European country and prayed there were alternate operations that would prevent planes from crashing into each other. And then she found CDG on the list, the acronym for the Charles de Gaulle International Airport.

“I found it.”

“Scramble everything.”
