J.E. Leak

Category: Romance

An epic world war. A forbidden love. Can two women overcome both to be together?

Amidst the backdrop of New York City during World War II, this tale of two women struggling against a forbidden love grabs the reader from the start and never lets go.

Guilt-ridden over her part in her father’s death, budding reporter Jenny Ryan gets an anonymous call that sets her on a path of intrigue and danger. The caller pins her father’s death on a man selling secrets to the enemy: wealthy industrialist Marcus Forrester. In her plan to bring him down, she didn’t count on falling for Forrester’s mistress, Kathryn Hammond.

Kathryn Hammond is a popular nightclub singer with elegant grace and stunning good looks, but she harbors a secret. Stuck stateside carrying out dead-end missions for the OSS while the war rages in Europe, her life is turned upside down when Jenny Ryan becomes her latest dead-end mission and awakens the enemy that could cost her everything—desire.
