Diana Johnson witnessed her father’s execution. To disappear from the drug world and the man who framed her father, she starts a new life with a new identity in San Diego. Glad to finally be free, she allows herself to fall in love with Ashton Powell—a dream of a man who allowed her to cry on his shoulder during her flight to a new life.
DEA Agent Ashton Powell’s undercover assignment is to befriend Diana and find evidence to use against a powerful drug lord. From day one, Ashton is attracted to Diana, but he believes she is a drug lord’s ex-lover. Fearing she will choose to return to the drug world, he fights against his growing love for her.
Those of you who have been hanging out with me over the years know I’ve often said that my first published novel was originally a different book, but one of my characters kept trying to take over the novel. Ernesto wanted his story told and it wasn’t quite the story I was writing. Sooooo, I wrote Caught Up (my first published novel) to make Ernesto happy. But what happened to the original book? This is that book.
I knew publishing houses would not want this book because it is not a romance in the traditional sense, though romantic. To keep my characters from being placed in boxes, I knew I’d have to go it on my own someday if I wanted this published. So there you have it. I hope you enjoy.
If you’ve read Caught Up, you’ll notice similarities between the stories, yet they are still very different, so I suggest you let Caught Up go and read this for what it is: Operation White Rose. If you haven’t read Caught Up, wha’cha waiting for? Grab a copy. It’s a great book.
