Excerpt from Covert Danger

Michael swung back to face Amalia “I don’t know why you lied to them and why you’re lying now, but you know better than anyone I won’t lie. For you or anyone else.”

An odd sensation pinged her chest. As if he’d shot an arrow that bounced off the rock of her heart. She mentally brushed away the laughable image and returned to her objective—persuading an uncooperative protected witness not to blow her cover.

“There’s a lot at stake in your cooperation, though I can’t tell you what it is.” The words, You’ll have to trust me, died before they came out. She wouldn’t go that far. Not with Michael. She didn’t even trust herself, and she was the last person he would trust. 

“I understand you don’t want to lie.” She held the breath she wanted to exhale. It’d be a tell that suggested compromise, giving up ground. “You don’t need to lie about knowing me or keep our history a secret if you’re asked directly. All I’m asking is that you call me by my right name and don’t reveal my former identity to anyone. I am Amalia Pérez now, so you won’t be lying. The person you knew no longer exists.”

He walked farther away from her and stopped at the end of the king-sized bed, looking out the glass patio doors ten feet in front of him. “Okay.”

Amalia relaxed her grip on Raksa’s leash. Another successful negotiation.

“But on one condition.” He turned toward her, sunlight from the window behind him backlighting his strong frame. “That you tell me what happened to Sofia.”
