Three years ago, Bella and Aidan were in love.
But Bella proved too valuable to the war office, her talent for cryptography unmatched, so through lies and manipulation, war office agents destroyed Bella’s and Aidan’s belief in each other. Emotionally ripped apart, love turned to hate.
After the war, Bella receives documents that reveal the truth. They were pawns, their love a casualty of war!
Now, could they start anew?
Jaded by war, Bella feels second chances are fairy tales. Besides, the spymaster is pressuring her to resume cryptography for a new secret service. She loves Aidan, but….
The more time Aidan spends around Bella, the more he knows he loves this woman far more than the young girl he courted three years ago. But with Bella denying them a second chance, the least he can do is see she doesn’t get pressured back into spy work.
Then he discovers a specter from Bella’s war past is stalking her and he’ll do whatever it takes to protect her.
But will it be enough?
And will he be enough for her?
