#Excerpt #Teasers Hard Target by @marquitaval @wordsmithpublic

We're celebrating the release of HARD TARGET by Marquita Valentine!

Title: Hard Target (Target #2)
Age Group: Adult
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: February 16, 2016

Book Description:
Ten years ago, Benjamin Romanov left behind a world of violence and intrigue. Now he’s living the dream as the chief technology officer at PharmGen, the world’s largest provider of vaccinations. The perks are amazing—a luxury penthouse, fast car, and his pick of women. The only downside to his job is reporting employees for less than scrupulous e-mail practices, but when he is forced to confront an employee in the lab, he ends up preventing a security guard from killing an innocent woman.

Receptionist Morgan Tanner never meant to get caught in the crosshairs of a deal gone wrong. All she wanted was one night of excitement with the sexy and elusive Benjamin Romanov. But now they’re on the run, and Benjamin thinks she has something to do with why everyone wants to kill them. Only she has no idea what’s going on at all—she was only in the lab to deliver a time-sensitive package.

With time running out, Benjamin must find a way to protect an innocent woman while keeping his distance… and expose PharmGen to the world before the deadly virus is unleashed. 


“Don’t you want to tell me how you’re going to kill me?” Frantic and desperate, I scan the room, looking for something to hit or stab him with. “All the best villains give a detailed description.”
He nudges my head with something hard. The gun, probably. “It’s simple. You didn’t follow protocol, so now I have to kill you.”
“You’re going to kill me for sleeping with Ben?” I all but shriek.
“Shut up.” He kicks me in the back.
I fall forward with a cry, my head narrowly missing hitting the floor. Squeezing my eyes shut, I begin to pray.
A shot rings out and my body jerks, but there’s no pain. There’s a thud.
My eyes open and they’re staring straight at a face. Only the face has a hole in the center of the forehead and it’s smoking. A thin line of blood runs down from it.

He’s dead.
