Six years ago Hunter Cassidy was blackmailed into a Black Ops assignment for the CIA. If he refused they’d kill the only woman he’s ever loved. If he accepted he had to disappear out of her life but at least she’d be alive. Safe. Even if every moment without her is its own form of torture, he had no choice.
Alexis Baptiste once had everything she ever wanted, and then one morning it was gone. The man she loved slipped out in the night and never returned leaving her pregnant and alone. She thought he was dead – because how could he have just walked away from what they had? – and tried to move on with her life. She’s about to get married to a man that, while she may not love him he’s safe, will never break her heart. Just one look into hunter’s eyes – the same ones she sees when she looks at her son – and her world starts spinning out of control.
When Hunter learns they’re after Alexis, to use against him, it’s a race to get to her first. Only things have changed since he saw her six years ago. She has a fiancée… and a son. Hunter’s son. He doesn’t care about her fiancée… well okay he does. He’s jealous, because it should have been his life but he grudgingly realizes this man can give Alexis everything Hunter can’t. Everything she deserves. But the one thing Michael can’t do is protect her and their son from the assassins willing to use Alexis and Jonathon against Hunter.
Hunter takes Alexis and Jonathan on the run, while they decide who to trust with the information that could save their lives. And in a tale full of twists and turns, heart ache and betrayal there just might be enough room for redemption and love if Hunter can play the hand dealt him just right.
His Secret Past was an action packed page turner. The characters felt real, their personalities were well developed and it was impossible not to love the good guys and hate the bad guys. It takes a talented writer to make your heart break for the characters during a love scene but Ms. Reus manages it with seemingly little effort. So clear your afternoon schedule and curl up with some hot cocoa, a warm blanket and probably a few Kleenex and lose yourself in an incredible read!
Six years ago, Alexis Baptiste's world was turned upside down when Hunter Cassidy disappeared without a trace, leaving her alone and pregnant. She's finally moving on with her life when he resurfaces, just in time to rescue her from a would-be assassin. Forced to join him on the run to protect herself and her young son, Alexis is now in even more danger: danger of falling for Hunter all over again.
Betrayed by rogue CIA agents after infiltrating an infamous drug cartel, former DEA agent Hunter Cassidy has spent years trying to clear his name. He's not proud of the things he's done, and knows he doesn't deserve a future with Alexis, or the son he never knew he had, but he's determined to protect them from the men who ruined his life. Convincing Alexis to trust him—and denying his feelings for her—is going to be the hardest mission he's ever faced.
