Romance / Action

Chapter 1

"Can I be allowed just one normal year?" I ask my best friend Macey McHenry as we walk along the snow covered campus of Cambridge University.

"Oh gosh," she replies, "What happened? New weird ass assignment?"

"Surprisingly enough no…Zach told me he has something planned for Valentine's Day."

She looks at me, shocked. "Ok so A. this is awesome Cam! B. why are you NOT excited!? If Preston planned a surprise for me on Valentine's day, which he better have, I'd be ecstatic not down in the dumps like you are."

"Mace you know me, I don't like things that I'm not involved in planning. Anyway, Valentine's has never been my favorite holiday. It always reminds me of my dad," I say, reminiscing on the Valentine's days with my dad where I was always involved. 

"Cam, hey! Stay with me here, I know that face, it's you're nostalgic face. Now listen to me! Zach is crazy about you and he cares about you a lot, just try it! Besides Valentine's Day is a couple of months away anyways. So don't worry about your dad, I know Zach will make it special if I have to hold him down and force him to plan something spectacular."

Laughing at how protective Macey is being I look down at the tone from my phone to see a text from Zach. 

*My room – 20 min. need to talk*

"Gotta go Zach just texted me, probably some new mission," I say before tuning to walk in the direction of his dorm. We really lucked out in going to the same college. Not that we planned it like that or anything….


After a quick walk across campus and I am standing in front of Zach's door about to knock when the door swings open and instead of seeing the door I am staring into Zach's green eyes.

"Hey there Gallagher Girl," he says.

"How in the world did you know I was out here?" I ask knowing my footsteps were quieter than a mouse. Yeah, years of spy training can that to a girl.

"You are always at least five minutes earlier than the time set no matter where you are going or what you are doing. I noticed, so I expected," he says to me with a smirk.

I glare at his smirking face for a second before wrapping my arms around him and twisting until I am sitting on top of him. 

"So….hi," I say smugly. 

He quirks one eyebrow and then in one smooth motion he is suddenly laying on top of me with that damn smirk back on his lips and laughter in his eyes. He leans down and plants a light kiss on my lips.

"Well as much as I would enjoy spending our time together like this, unfortunately we can't. New mission came in. Our professors have already been informed all you need to do is pack. Be sure to have pack a few formal outfits but mainly everyday wear, more on the business casual side. However," Zach says, "Pack some comfortable things as we will not always be on the job."

And just like that we snap back into spy mode.

"Where exactly are we going?" I ask trying to gather more information so I have some idea as to what we will be doing and how to pack.

He smirks and says, "Oh, see that is for me to know and you to find out. Remember, spy?" He finishes pointing at himself, "All you need to know is that we will be trying to gain intel on a new terrorist threat that no one knows anything about. We will posing as boyfriend and girlfriend of two very wealthy weapons families who deal with all sorts of, ahem….'customers,' oh and Liz will be there as well as Macey and Bex of course. They will be behind the scenes though so we won't interact with them much. We will also be sharing a suite at the hotel we will be living at for the next couple of months."


After I pack, well after Macey packs for me in the dorm we share because for some reason she knows where we are going but I don't. We catch a cab with Zach to the airport.

"Plane tickets?" I ask, assuming we will be flying commercial for this one.

"We come from wealthy weapons manufacturing families, you really think we will be flying commercial? Oh no, you will not be finding out where we are going until we get there Cam," Zach says to me.

Damn, I think, and here I thought I might get to find out but Zach was one step ahead of me like usual which really bugs me.

We finally arrive at the hanger and board the private jet provided graciously by Macey.

"Liz and Bex are already there, you should relax it's gonna be a long flight," Zach brightly tells me.

Zach sits on the sofa and pats the cushion next to him invitingly causing me to blush but I lay down anyway placing my head in his lap.

"Sleep Cammie," Zach whispers to me as he starts to run is fingers through my hair calming me, slowly making me tired, and finally lulling me to sleep.


"Cammie, wake up. Come on time to get up we have arrived," Zach says.

I sit up, stretch, and walk off of the plane before I come to a dead stand still. "Zach….please tell me I am wrong and we are not going to be working where I think we are," I say.

"Sorry Cam, I can't do that because you are correct in where we are at. Welcome to Paris Gallagher Girl," his voice sounds from behind me, "City of Lights, but more widely known as the City of Love."

Tiffany Thomson: This story is not something I would normally pick up and read but I'm so glad I did, I wasn't able to put it down and my husband was yelling at me at 3am to put it down and go to bed (just waited for him to doze back off before picking it back up) I really hope Natalie brings out another book eit...

Ruby0h: Overall I thought your story was really good! It drew me in right away and kept me interested as the story progressed.

Michelle Shane Hammatt: Well written fiction. I couldn't put it down and read it until I was finished in one sitting. Can't wait to see what the author has in store for us next. The characters were real and you felt like you were watching the story being played before your eyes.

LouiseJ2: I enjoyed the detail you went into with regards to the case. It made the UNSUB appear believable. The crisis in the middle of the story was my favorite part, very dramatic but not over the top. I feel like sometimes pairings can be overdone but I liked that some of the relationships were a little...

brettylee: The narrative is slick yet punchy. Life, Family and Friends I believe is the core message so it’s easy to relate to. It’s surprisingly action packed. The author does a good job at keeping you guessing. Just when you think all is right, whack, the unexpected happens. The dialogue is energetic and ...

Sandra Estrada: I loved every minute of it and I thank my lucky stars that brought me to the story, it's been a whirlwind of emotions, plot twist after plot twist but I never got tired of them. Abby and Kade's story is a hard one to understand but once you're submerged in their story and love, you can't help but...

GeorgeS: The author has a VERY refreshingly direct writing style. Sometimes being punched in the gut (or nose, as the case may be) can be an excellent thing, indeed. Whatever may be lacking in subtlety is more than made up for in the diamond clarity of character development. I look forward to MORE. I c...

jessiehs: This was absolutely amazing. I loved how it went back and forth between perspectives. I actually cried at the end I was so happy. This was amazing. I can't even think of another word to describe it. Thank you for writing his.

catd69: Karim is a very talented writer. When I started reading his journey it took me into the book and I was in the story till the end. I've never felt this way with any other writers stories. If you want to read a gripping adventure, this will be the one book I would suggest you pick.
