If you haven’t read Jagged Edge, I suggest you wait to read this. It occurs immediately after the end of book 1 in The Arsenal series and bridges its conclusion with the second book, Sight Lines.
If you are a fan of the Arsenal series, you won’t want to miss this book. It’s a novella, short, sweet, sexy and to the point. While you do have to sign up for Cara’s newsletter to get it, who wouldn’t want to know when the next book is coming out?
The girls are going to head to Marville to collect Rachelle and bring her to the compound for her own safety. Dylan would much rather do other things with his fiancé but his sister is quite persistent.
This is a favorite scene.
“We’d agreed to work Marville together,” he whispered.
“Yeah, but after the reaction your brothers got, I’m thinking I’m better off going without a Mason man glowering at everyone.”
“You aren’t doing this alone.” “Of course not. I’ll have my girls.”
“Riley shouldn’t be part of this,” Dylan added.
“I’m thinking the entirety of the US Military couldn’t keep her away,” Mary retorted.
A loud banging on the door startled Mary. Dylan drew her closer as the door rattled.
“Mary? You’d better not be in there doing naughty things with my big brother. You’re supposed to be downstairs, ready to go.”
She looked over at the clock and then up at Dylan, who was flashing a not-so-nice-look toward the locked door. “She can wait.”
Mary chuckled. “I’m afraid we’ll have to wait to continue this. Once we get started, I doubt it’ll be quick.”
“Never, not with you,” he promised. He cupped her face. “You get overwhelmed, or need me, you call.”
“I’ll be fine.”
“I know you will be. Just remember it’s okay to step back and focus on you.”
“You’re starting to sound like Doctor Sinclair,” she teased.
“Mary?” Riley pounded on the door again. “Don’t think I won’t kick this thing down. Get your cute, brilliant ass out here. We’ve got a hornet’s nest to stir up, and Addy’s not the patient sort.”
Dylan kissed Mary softly on the lips. “See you later, sweetheart. Text, let me know how it’s going.”
“HERA will have eyes on us.”
The system she and Vi had created was at the root of so many of the problems they’d had lately. It was almost hard to believe something they designed in their dorm room was worth all the effort to secure. But she couldn’t regret it’s creation, not when it’d saved so many lives and done good. That trumped the evil, right?
Mary hoped so.
