About the Book
Love, Secrets, and Lies…
Kate Jameson married the man of her dreams. Her real-life hero. A man who wouldn’t abandon
her the way her father had—or so she thought. Weeks after their son’s birth, her husband is
suddenly pulled away for a business trip that takes him out of the country. But something isn’t r
ight. His truths aren’t adding up. Kate digs into his past, determined to learn what he’s hiding.
But unraveling this endless mystery draws her into a maze of lies, family secrets and deadly
consequences.
For twenty years, undercover CIA agent Eric Wiley lived for one reason—to avenge his parents’
brutal deaths. Until he marries Kate. Eric promises her a life of love and commitment, but
competing promises constantly collide, offering him little chance of keeping either. When an
informant lures him to Mexico, Eric thinks his goal of apprehending an elusive killer will be
realized. Leaving his family for a few short days, weeks at the most, would be worth the prize.
Can this final mission bring closure and allow Eric to be the husband Kate deserves and the
father he yearns to be? Or will their destiny remain mired in the secrets of his past, leaving them
powerless to embrace their present?

EXCERPTS
ERIC
He walked to where she stood and kissed her cheek before embracing his wife and son
in a group hug. “I feel damn lucky this emergency didn’t come up sooner.”
He brushed her arm, noting the goosebumps prickling against his palm.
“If that call had come before Benjamin’s birth, would you have left and missed seeing
your son be born?” she asked.
How could he answer without adding more lies to the growing mountain of falsehoods
he’d already fabricated? As far as she knew, he was committed to his profession as an
importer for his parents’ chain of discount stores. The success of his mission—and possibly
his safety—depended on her believing that version.
“Of course not.” Eric told her what she wanted to hear.
KATE
Kate smiled at the way Eric’s eyebrows arched in his hopeless attempts to get Benjamin’s
attention. For the past twenty minutes, she held their son in an awkward posture in front
of her desktop computer camera, coaxing a somewhat sleeping baby to greet his father.
Up until a few seconds ago, their son displayed little interest. She knew the squirming
had more to do with hunger than his eagerness to interact with his dad.
Kate had waited all day for Eric to call. She needed to see his face, stubbled with
a five-o’clock shadow, even if it was through her computer screen. She shifted Benjamin
to her other arm. This must be how military families with one parent deployed feel.
This wasn’t the marriage she signed up for. Twenty minutes over a video call couldn’t
substitute for his presence. It could be exhaustion or not getting regular sleep, but she
wondered if the man she married was more like her father in ways she hadn’t anticipated.
Eric wasn’t an alcoholic, a wifebeater or a deadbeat. But neither was Monica’s husband,
Brad. Kate had witnessed how her brother-in-law’s sins nearly ripped the soul of their
family apart.
There were all sorts of ways to abandon your wife and desert your family. Just because
she was most familiar with the ones her father implemented, didn’t mean that she and
her sisters wouldn’t suffer from other approaches. Separated by hundreds of miles
without knowing when he would return qualified as desertion of a type. At least in Kate’s
mind.
