From my current work in progress/ romance suspense novel:
Ava Lara Daniels is quiet and reserved. Unaware of her beauty and always working in her lab. She has spent the last year working on a top secret government assignment for Homeland Security. But when she shows up to work after finally letting loose one night—she finds her lab empty and her boss missing. Interrogated by the very organization she works for, followed by unknowns and attacked – Ava finds herself in search of answers as the clock ticks down. Is a terrorist attack going to happen and has she been unknowingly culpable? Who can she trust when it seems that everyone she encounters is lying and out to get her?
Aiden O’Connor stopped working for Homeland Security 8 months ago- after a terrorist take-down in D.C. went south. He now helps his father run a successful Irish bar in the heart of Charlotte, N.C. – he prefers to live a carefree and relationship-free life . . . until Ava Daniels shows up at his bar, asking for help. Ava is like no other woman he has ever encountered. A breathtakingly beautiful biochemist who tells him she is not only in danger, but her missing boss is also his uncle – the brother of a mother he never knew.
