The Bane Affair by Alison Kent


Christian Bane battles demons rooted in a woman’s betrayal—a betrayal that left him to die in a Thai prison. All these years later as a member of the elite Smithson Group, he still isn’t free of the past.

Now Spectra IT, the crime syndicate responsible for his imprisonment, has recruited a computer scientist to hack critical encryption technology, and Christian has been tasked with stopping him. Posing as a womanizing Spectra boss, Christian gets up close and personal with Natasha Gaudet, the scientist's goddaughter who handles his business affairs. She's his most obvious way in.

But the closer Christian gets to Natasha, the harder it is to deceive her. The fact that she knows nothing about her godfather’s dealings has Christian wondering who fed the Smithson Group the faulty intel. Because if she isn’t the criminal he’s been led to believe, they’re both being taken for a dangerous ride. And if he can't trust her, neither one of them will survive… and he needs her desperately to survive.
