Danger that is Damion

ZODIUS series, Book 3
Sourcebooks Casablanca (May 2012)
"Jones' suspense truly sizzles."--Booklist
Third in a hot military-themed paranormal romantic suspense series by award-winning and bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones. 

Product Description:
Lethally passionate, wickedly dangerous...
Renegade warrior Damion Browne is a soldier of soldiers, an enforcer of the code of honor. With ruthless precision, he calculates risks as deliberately as he does his lover's satisfaction. Now it's up to him to defeat a new generation of female Super Soldiers, including the one woman perfectly programmed to be his downfall.

His enemy...or his soul mate?

Lara Martin has never felt powerful, until she's brainwashed to destroy the one man who can help her find the answers she so desperately seeks. Alone and embroiled in lies, Lara must turn to Damion for the key to the truth ...


Chapter 1
There was nothing unusual to a casual observer about a hot woman in a white string bikini, lounging poolside, a few feet from where undercover Renegade soldier Damion Browne leaned against the cabana-style bar, a beer in hand. In fact, from a purely male standpoint, there was absolutely everything right with this particular woman-a brunette with long, silky, dark hair brushing creamy white shoulders. But then, he was on duty, and he took that duty too seriously to allow primal urges to distract him. Still... something about this woman set his blood pumping, and like it or not, that translated to a distraction that was out of character for him.
He told himself it was because she'd shown up ten minutes into the outdoor excursion of a Russian nuclear scientist and his family that Damion was covertly ensuring didn't end up in Adam Rain's arsenal of weapons. The last thing the Renegades wanted was the leader of the Zodius GTECH movement getting his hands on the nuclear technology Lev was selling the United States in exchange for citizenship. That's why this woman was a potential risk, he told himself, not because she had long, shapely legs that belonged wrapped around a man's waist-his waist, Damion thought with a rush of pure male heat. They belonged around his waist. Damn. What was wrong with him?
Inwardly he shook himself, not sure what it was about this woman, but she could easily drag him into the linger zone when he didn't go to the linger zone on duty. Scratch that, he thought, as he glanced at Lev and family and back to her. She already had him in the linger zone, and there was no forgiving his distraction, unless... That gnawing gut feeling was telling him that underneath all that sex appeal, she was trouble, despite Adam's dislike of female operatives. Add that to the fact that the CIA team watching Lev had allowed him outside in the first place, and Damion had a bad, bad feeling about this. Suddenly, as if she sensed his suspicions, the dark-haired beauty's head snapped in his direction, her attention settling on him, her eyes shielded by white-rimmed sunglasses. Time stood still for an intense, crackling moment. Certainty filled him. She had known the entire time that he was watching her.
The microphone tucked discreetly inside Damion's ear hummed a second before the voice of his Harley-loving, wild card, second-in-charge, Chale Bonner, spoke, "We reported Lev's barking dog to the front desk several times. Looks like security is headed his way. We'll have him inside the building where he's less exposed in a flash."
Damion didn't reply. He was still watching the woman, who, as abruptly as she'd given her attention, jerked it away. Reaching for her bag, she stood up, offering him a nice, heart-shaped backside view as she sashayed away. Her pace was slow, confident, but a bit too precise. She was hiding something, beside the intimate details of her body, details he wanted to discover beneath those tiny pieces of white material. Damion knew Adam didn't typically work with women-he believed they were inferior beings-but somehow, someway, this one was the source of the warning in his gut.
"Alert," Chale added. "Doggy Patrol has arrived. Get ready for movement." Damion eyed the back door of the hotel to find two uniformed security guards and a woman dressed in a suit headed toward Lev and his brood. "I see them," Damion said, his gaze shifting to the fast-departing, bikini-clad female. But had she seen them? Was that why she couldn't get away from this place fast enough?
Damion set the beer down and discreetly touched the mike hidden in his ear. "Cover Lev. Something about that woman is bothering me." He pushed off the bar and started walking, unable to use his GTECH ability to travel inside the wind without risk of garnering unwanted attention. This woman was dangerous. The kind of dangerous a soldier, a Renegade, didn't let escape.

I love Chris Hemsworth aka THOR. He's not a soldier in the traditional sense but works for me ;).


Lisa Renee Jones said...

Oh how did I forget Chris? YUM!
Ah Sorry Raonaid. I know how hard it is to let go of an animal. I'm working on new homes for my mom's pets because she is sick.

Well, this is embarassinng, but I've always liked that absolutely AWFUL movie Soldier, starring Kurt Russell. He doesn't speak - just grunts (so funny)- but he looks pretty darn good, lol!
