An innocent woman is caught in the crosshairs of an international manhunt. Her only hope of escaping the jungle alive is the most wanted man on the planet.

Accused of murder and the theft of a microchip containing deadly scientific research, SSU agent Kai Paterson is the target of an international manhunt. His only hope of clearing his name lies in finding the microchip before the hunters catch him. And kill him.

Kai isn't the only one who's tracked the microchip to internationally renowned archaeologist Susana Dias. But he's the only one who will keep her alive.

Focused on uncovering a legendary city deep in the heart of the jungle, archaeologist Susana Dias is unaware she holds the missing microchip inside her. Betrayed and hunted, she finds an unexpected ally in Kai.

Kai promises to protect her, but will his promise hold up when it comes time to retrieve the microchip? Removing the chip might kill Susana. Letting the data on the chip fall into the wrong hands puts thousands of lives at risk.

In a race for their lives through the jungle, Kai must find a solution that will save both Susana and the world.

If you like edge-of-your-seat action, jungle chases, and characters forced to confront the darkness within themselves, then you'll love the second book in Vanessa Kier's action-packed SSU romantic thriller series. Get Betrayal today to begin the adventure!

About the Author:

Vanessa Kier spends way too much time thinking up ways she can torture her characters. A worst-case scenario thinker, she's been creating stories in her head since childhood. Now she channels her persistently dark what-if questions into writing romantic thrillers that combine intense emotion with action-packed plots. The author of The Surgical Strike Unit series about a privately run special operations group, she has set her new series WAR in West Africa, where she lived for a time.

When she's not writing, listening to music, or playing puzzle games on her mobile device, Vanessa helps writers learn Scrivener and takes long hikes in the nearby hills.
