If you stick around to the end, I'll give away an e-copy of Spy Games: Trained for Seduction (or one of the others if you've read it!) 

Since my third book in the Spy Games series (Spy Games: Endgame) is releasing VERY soon, I thought it would be fun to get readers caught up on the action. If you've started the series, then you know Chase Sanders feels he's unlucky in love and Lady Luck has it out for him. He's my tall, dark and dangerous spy boss and he's been in love before, only to have Lady Luck slam the door in his face. Now Kate Wells has entered his life and he was doomed to love her from the beginning. Only he's supposed to train her to seduce the enemy, and chances are she won't return from this dangerous mission.

Here's a little excerpt to show you just how much Lady Luck loves to mess with poor Chase. He met her on assignment, disguised as Alexander Bishop. The set up: Kate has just asked Chase to teach her how to seduce, and it's led to her asking a whole bunch of questions Chase just doesn't want to answer! 

Excerpt from: Spy Games: Trained for Seduction

"...You don’t understand what kind of man I am, Kate. I’m sorry. I’m so sorry.”

“You’re sorry for what? Fucking me?”

“I’m sorry for being the man you’ll learn to hate.” She opened her mouth, and Chase shook his head. “You will hate me. I’ll send you to hell and back, make you do horrible things, and though the safety of America is worth it to me, I’m not so sure it’s worth it to you. I hate my job for taking someone I saw as so pure and beautiful, and turning her into a fucking hot, killing machine.”

She crossed her arms over her chest, looking tough, mulish. “I don’t regret it one bit. I’m happier now than I ever was in my life, Chase. I’m trapped, sure, but at least there’s some say. At least I know the rules up front.

“With my father, there were no rules. I was smart in the lab, but he found fault with every other aspect of my life and was mentally abusive. He was crazy, delusional, and it would have been a matter of time before he turned on me. He tried to sell my virginity to you, so what else would he have done? I don’t regret Alex kissing me, taking me to third base. And I don’t regret Chase being my first. I don’t regret becoming a fucking hot, killing machine. I feel free.”

“You’re still going to hate me.” He felt as if he were drowning, and she was standing on shore with a life preserver and he couldn’t ask for it, not even to save his life.

“Maybe. But isn’t there the possibility that we might end up loving each other? We have something special. I feel it. I know you do. Our lives don’t have to be hell.”

Chase sighed, closed his eyes for a second, and kissed Lady Luck goodbye forever. “Don’t go there, Kate. Please.”

So what did you think? Is Chase lucky, or doomed?
