Leila Amato could hardly process how her life had changed in just a few short hours. Being held captive within the heavily guarded walls of a remote Iraqi compound was a far cry from enjoying a romantic evening with a tall, dark, and handsome salesman on the hillsides of Munich, Germany.
"The woman Michael Wright had given his heart to was gone. Just . . . gone."
Pulling all his strings as a CIA operative did not allow him permission to find Leila, in fact those resources were never designed for personal missions, but that didn't mean he was going to let her disappear either. The plan Michael did come up with was pretty sketchy and full of potential hiccups, but nothing prepared him for the overall picture or the fact that he would be rescuing two women, not just one.
"He will cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart." - Psalm 91.
There is only one true Rescuer in this story and Leila and Michael both know Who that is.

A heart-pounding tale of danger and devotion, the riveting second installment of the Wright Heroes of Maine series by a USA Today bestselling author.
CIA agent Michael Wright's world crumbles when his girlfriend, Leila, is snatched off the street and later seen in the grasp of a terrorist he’s been tracking, Michael blames himself. Keeping his identity secret from her clearly didn’t protect her. Now he must defy the Agency and fly to Iraq to rescue her.
Leila Amato escaped Iraq a decade earlier, only returning in her worst nightmares. But those nightmares have come true when she finds herself captive and all alone, or so she thought until she sees her identical twin sister.
Michael tracks Leila to a desert compound, but his rescue mission goes awry when he discovers her sister needs to escape as well. His detailed strategy can only ensure one woman’s safety. Now they’re on the run, trying to get out of the country before their enemies track them down.
But Leila’s kidnapping is only one small part of a larger plot—one that endangers thousands of lives—and now he doesn’t know who he can trust. Not even the woman who’s stolen his heart. A woman who’s been keeping secrets of her own…
A high-stakes international chase full of romantic suspense, spies, and a ticking time bomb that will keep you reading all night long.
