Mercury Cardinal, the quietly intense and dedicated captain of Chimera Team, has one mission tonight: get Daria Hill from the safety of her bed, through the rebels who just overtook the embassy, to the rendezvous helicopter on the other side of town.
Guarding Daria has been Mercury’s long standing cover assignment when not on special operations missions. Protecting her is sacred, and even though their relationship has changed and he hates the thought of having to let her go, he’ll get her safely to the evacuation helicopter or die trying . . .
