Classic romantic suspense, I’m right at home.
The Tracker (The Dregs, #1) by Leslie Georgeson is an Adult, Romance, Suspense.
I’m a trained killer. An expert tracker.
I’ve done despicable things. My soul is damaged. My body impaired. That’s what happens when you are a soldier for The Company. I was discharged a year ago. Now I am a dreg. Worthless. With a bounty on my head. I’ve become a creature of the night, hiding in an underground maze during the day. Because I’m not ready to die yet.
She comes to me one night, needing my help to find her sister. The moment I see her, I want her. Her goodness calls to me, makes me yearn for the impossible. She brings life back to the deadness inside me. I’m no good for her. I will do nothing but corrupt her. But I’m a callous bastard. I can’t resist her.
I try not to care for her, but somehow she slips under my skin. She makes me weak. And there is only one thing in this world I am afraid of. Weakness.
I’ll never be good enough for her, so I have to finish this job and send her on her way.
Before she destroys me.
I cleared my throat. “You’re…not what I thought you’d be.”
Amusement danced in his silver eyes. He quirked a dark brow, the corner of his lip twisting up in a smirk. “And what were you expecting?”
“A beast,” I whispered.
He chuckled. “Oh, I’m a beast all right.” Something flashed in his eyes. Something dangerous that made my heart want to bolt from my chest.
Drawing in a deep breath, I asked, “Are you sure you’re The Tracker? You don’t look injured to me. I thought all the dregs had injuries that forced them into retirement.”
That dark brow shot up again. “Is that the rumor going around? What do people say about us?”
“Um, just that you were all soldiers once, but injuries prevented you from continuing your duties, so whoever employed you discharged you, cast you aside. And now you’re being hunted, because lots of people want you dead for things you’ve done. So you reside here, hiding out like criminals on the run.”
The smirk grew. He neither confirmed nor denied the rumors. Did that make them true?
He tapped his skull. “My injuries are inside here. I’m loco.” He sent me a sly smile that made a shiver crept down my spine. Was he teasing?
I shined the light back in his face as I glanced up into his eyes, searching for saneness. Was he insane? I got nothing from his eyes, nothing except a cold silvery gleam that I couldn’t interpret. My heart pounded. Dear God, what am I doing here?
I cleared my throat and tried to hide my fear. “Are you sane enough to track down my sister?”
A low chuckle escaped him, making me step back. “I don’t need to be sane to track. I just need my senses and my intuition. That’s why I’m so good at it.”
What did that mean? Was he sane or wasn’t he?
