Paris, 1942. As she twirls in the arms of handsome dancer Santiago Lozano, surrounded by aristocrats and high-ranking German officials, Elena Garcia looks like every other beautiful young woman at the glamorous party. But she is hiding a dangerous secret: she is a spy.
Undercover in occupied Europe, risking her life daily, Elena never planned to fall in love. But everything changes when she meets Santiago in a crowded bar. His warm dark eyes and kind smile draw her in… but he can never know her real identity and opening her heart to him could put both of them in jeopardy. Elena cannot help but fall for Santiago, but can she truly trust him?
Then Elena is tasked with a dangerous assignment, delivering coded maps for the Resistance. As she leaves the meeting, she hears heavy footsteps closing in behind her and her heart begins to pound. Fighting off her attacker, she races back to the station, barely making it onto the train. She is forced to confront the worst: her cover is blown and now nowhere will be safe.
To stay alive Elena must flee the city, leaving the man she’s grown to love behind. But she desperately wants to finish her mission, and she will not leave Santiago to face the wrath of the Gestapo alone.
Torn between her heart and her head, Elena must ask herself: should she risk everything to save her love… or was he the one who betrayed her to the enemy?
An epic, gripping and emotional wartime novel based on the true stories of the female secret agents sent into occupied Europe. Fans of The Alice Network, Soraya M. Lane and Pam Jenoff will be totally hooked.
