Sharon is here today as a guest blogger to tell us more about Wiz and Olivia's story. Please help me welcome her to the pen series. and be sure to grab your copy of Operation Midnight this weekend.
About Operation Midnight
No bad deed goes unpunished…
Former Navy SEAL turned private investigator, Cameron “Wiz” Miller, has loved only one woman, his ex-wife, Olivia. She’s beautiful, talented and the sweetest person he knows. With plans to remarry her, there is nothing she could ask of him that he wouldn’t do except … one thing.
Olivia has loved Wiz since high school. He is her hero. Her protector. She understands his hesitation to search for the woman who left her for dead. Forgiveness has been a long time coming, but Olivia has made peace with what happened. Wiz hasn't. For him, forgiveness is not an option.
But the sins of the past have come back to haunt Wiz, placing Olivia in danger. He must tap into his military training and every alliance he has formed over the years to save her. But is it too late? Will he and Olivia ever get that happily-ever-after?
I’ve always enjoyed books with a theme of romantic reunions and second chances. Mix that with a little suspense and I’m in book nirvana! That’s one of the reasons why the Reunited Series was created a few years ago. The series follows the lives of men bitten by the love bug who went on to capture the hearts of some unsuspecting women. This last couple in Operation Midnight, Cameron (Wiz) and Olivia Miller, are no different.
In love since their teens, Wiz and Olivia’s relationship has endured challenges that no couple should have to experience, but through it all, they’ve survived…until now. Now, there are moments when they’re not sure if they really know each other. It doesn’t help that Olivia has requested something from Wiz that he can’t…and won’t give her. Olivia is slow to understand his resistance.
But let me ask you. What would happen if someone you loved lured you to a drug house and then left you there for dead? If you lived to tell about it, could you forgive that person? Would you forgive them?
Wiz and Olivia are faced with that situation. They are on the opposite sides of the fence when it comes to forgive and forget. And a past that they thought was buried for good comes back to haunt them, occasionally putting them at odds. Though true love should be able to stand the test of time, will that be the case for Wiz and Olivia?
“I want her dead.”
Wiz paced the length of the small, musty cellar, his pulse pounding in his ears. He wished the steady drumming would drown out the anger seeping into his soul. Wound tighter than a man staring down the barrel of a semi-automatic gun, he took a few cleansing breaths to release the anxiety roaring through his veins. It wasn’t working. Nothing was working.
He kept moving. Except for his combat boots stomping against the dusty concrete floor and the low hum of a nearby furnace, the space was quiet. Gagged and bound, flanked by his two best friends, the woman who had slithered into his life and almost destroyed everything he held dear, sat glaring at him. She wiggled in the hard wooden chair trying to free herself to no avail. Her eyes, cold and unyielding followed his every move, making him hate her that much more.
He stopped and stood before her, feeling nothing but disgust. Red, glassy eyes and the slight shakes confirmed she was high. Hell, considering her condition, she wouldn’t even feel the torture he intended to inflict on her, but it would help him. It would help him try to piece his life back together. It would help him feel less guilt for not being on American soil to protect his wife. It would help him get retribution for the life this bitch had taken.
A life for a life.
“Wiz, think about what you’re planning to do here,” his friend Quinn said, his gloved hand propped against the closed door and the low rumble of his voice cutting through Wiz’s thoughts. “Let me handle this. I can take care of everything and you can head back to the hospital. Your wife needs you. Besides, you have too much to lose.”
“I’ve already lost almost everything and thanks to this woman, Olivia is fighting for her life.”
