Hunter, HealerBook - 2005
The black-ops government agency known as Sigma has shattered the resistance, destroyed its infrastructure, and taken its best operative captive. It's about as bad as it can get, but Sigma's forgotten one thing: Rowan Price.
Rowan is no longer a civilian in the shadow war. Her talents are fully trained, and she's become something she never dreamed of--a cool, clinical, lethal psionic operative. Working as Henderson's second-in-command, she's utterly focused on two things: repairing the Society's infrastructure and rescuing Justin Delgado. Yet under her shell of calm and gentleness, her rage is simmering . . . and it's about to break loose.
Delgado knows he can't remember something important. He puts up with Sigma's beatings and questioning, the pain and the torture. Sigma keeps asking him the same question--where is Rowan Price? He doesn't know who this woman is or where she is, but if he can escape Sigma one more time, he's damn sure going to find out. Because Price, whoever she is, holds the key to his fractured memories and destroyed soul.
But first, he has to get out. Then he'll find Rowan Price.
Unfortunately, that may be the one thing Sigma's counting on.
