Before She Can Put the Past Away...There’s Hell to Pay.
Hannah Taylor—the bright, bubbly publicity director of Silicon Valley’s celebrated startup Paragon Laboratories—was kidnapped and beaten. Her bodyguard-boyfriend, Wesley Eden, was shot right in front of her. The responsible party? None other than Chinese mogul Li Na Zhao, who’ll stop at nothing to steal Paragon’s blockbuster biotechnology from Hannah’s CEO sister Lauren.
Now, Wesley and Hannah are back home and on the mend. Their relationship is tested as Wesley struggles to recover, and Hannah, fueled by the injustice of Li Na’s actions, is out for retribution while refusing to acknowledge the PTSD she’s grappling with from her kidnapping. Convinced that Hannah is hiding the truth about her captivity, Wes is determined to find out what really happened while Li Na had Hannah.
Out to protect her loved ones, Hannah is hell-bent on finally taking Li Na down, especially after she discovers that Paragon isn’t the only Silicon Valley company in Li Na’s crosshairs. Naturally, the ethically challenged Chinese CEO likes her position on top and refuses to give up without a fight...
But Li Na hasn’t grappled with Hannah Taylor when she’s bent on revenge.
“I just don’t understand. I mean, I don’t understand any of what she’s done.”
“Li Na.” I pulled my hand away. “I don’t understand how she could have Jim killed just because she wants in on Protocol Therapeutics’s profit margin.”
“But that’s not all she wants,” Lauren said. “She wants what comes with that—the notoriety, the importance. Gabe has a whole theory about her.”
“I’ll have to ask him.” I watched cars fly by on the freeway, feeling unsettled and angry.
My thoughts eventually circled back to Fiona. Seeing my friend’s quiet devastation had gutted me. “I don’t even know what to say about what Fiona’s going through…”
Lauren sighed. “I don’t, either—but you and I both know you can’t get over losing someone suddenly.” Lauren and I had direct experience with this. Our parents had died in a car crash. “All we can do is be here for their family.”
“And get rid of Li Na,” I said bitterly.
Lauren patted my hand. “Yeah. That would help.”
