Anna Brookes also known by her Professional name 15, did what she had never done before.
She didn’t kill her target, HiT 149.
HiT 149 better known as Ben Pearson did something he had never done before.
He fell in love with Anna Brookes.
In Hit for Freedom, the sequel to HiT 149, a nemesis so powerful, terrifying and frightening is threatening the safety of Anna’s love, Ben and his hometown, St Cloud.
15 must deal with a force that may be too dangerous even for her skilled ways. With limited information on her new HiT, she willingly infiltrates his trust to acquire the knowledge she needs to implode the operations of the deadly man.
"What you saw earlier must be playing around in your head. But you didn’t scream or freak out which tells me you are either very strong or very broken. Either way, the information I give you from here on in, you must understand that I will kill you if you choose to repeat it to anyone." I’ll let him believe that. ~ Anna Brookes
“Do you know what this is Anna?” He takes my hand and leads me over to the table.
“I think I’ve seen something like this in a movie.” I feign innocence and vulnerability.
A flashback to my training with Lukas and the three weeks I spent familiarising myself with learning how to beat the lie detector flickers in my thoughts. “My Treasure, this is a Polygraph. It’ll tell me what I need to know about you.”
“But I’m nervous Katsu and scared. I wasn’t expecting this.” I put on a show that Katsu would be expecting of me. I’m shivering, cowering into myself and stepping backwards.
“If you have nothing to hide Anna, then you shouldn’t worry. The machine is 100% accurate and the operator is fully trained.” Actually Katsu they’re 98% accurate – I don’t say that out loud.
“Are you sure you want to do this Katsu, I mean what if….” I trail off and cling to him in a fake effort for him to calm me.
“Shhhh my Treasure. It’s okay, just tell the truth and all will be fine.” He walks me over to the machine and sits me down in the chair. The operator walks around to the side I’m sitting at and starts strapping me up. My façade is firmly in place but I need to look intimidated to Katsu.
I look up at him from under my eye lashes and shed a few tears. “Please Katsu, you don’t have to do this.” God, I could be an actress.
I love to read. I'm a huge fan of books and when I start reading anything, I usually forgo doing everything else, I mean the housework will still be there in the morning (right?). When I love a story or book that I've downloaded, I usually refrain from sleep and am crabby the next day - but only until I pick my iPad up and start reading again!
I was recently described by a reviewer as my writing style is Chick-Lit with an Edge. I liked that so much that that's the way I describe the genre I write.
My goal when writing is just to take people away from whatever is going on in their lives, even if it's only for a split second.
I'm a go with the flow sort of person and don't really take a course of action to get where I am going. I live in the moment and don't usually worry about tomorrow because whatever life is due to bring me, I'll be happy to accept.
I love my family and friends and will help anyway I can if someone needs it. Every Friday I spend it with my girlfriends where we have 'cake day', which usually consists of a yummy yet nutritious lunch, quickly destroyed by a delicious and devilishly good cake and a caramel latte.
I really don't like people that are nasty just because they can be, I don't believe that's necessary, I mean life is hard enough as it is!
Three things you need to know about me; 1 - I'm fiercely loyal and will bend over backwards to help. 2 - I love chocolate, like A LOT and 3 - I have a huge crush on David Gandy at the moment! (I mean, who hasn't, have you seen the man????)
