Kentucky Confidential. Пола ГрейвсЧитать онлайн книгу.
The return of the wife he thought was lost and a baby he never knew existed will make this a Christmas to remember...
Captain Connor McGinnis has seen a ghost. Staring at a surveillance photo of a Kaziri immigrant, there can be no mistaking that the starkly beautiful—and visibly pregnant—woman in a head scarf is his wife, Risa. The woman he presumed was dead after her plane crashed into the ocean.
Risa McGinnis, relocated by the CIA when they learned of a price on her head, has settled into the guise of a widowed immigrant. Confronting Connor again resurrects sweet memories and a burning passion. But until this unknown enemy is captured, Risa must focus more on Connor’s protection than on their attraction. After all, the strength of her marriage—and the safety of her baby—depends on it...
Resourceful, he thought. That was Risa.
He felt a familiar tug low in his gut, a pull of attraction and admiration and awe, all wrapped up in one small, brilliant woman. And then, like a slow-rolling detonation, the delayed impact of the reality he’d been tamping down beneath his game face finally hit him with devastating force.
Shock waves of pent-up emotion blew through him, and he ended up dropping to the cold bus stop bench before his knees buckled.
He took several deep breaths, his heart hammering as if he’d run for miles. Risa sat beside him, her compact body warm, and she put her hand on his arm.
How could he tell her what he was feeling when he couldn’t trust the emotions? Yes, he was thrilled beyond words that she was alive. He had mourned her deeply, longed for her when she was no longer within his reach, but those feelings seemed to belong to another person.
A person who couldn’t have imagined that his wife would let him believe she was dead when she was very much alive.
And carrying his child.
