Faking her death was easy, living with her past is harder, but nothing is more dangerous than falling in love…

Sandra Walsh was a deadly sniper for the Sweet Briar Group, a covert agency with assassins for hire, until her last mission went horribly wrong, accidentally killing an innocent girl. Knowing she’s a danger to her team, Sandra goes off the grid, becoming a Shade—an agent declared dead but secretly hiding among the living. She intends to honor her vow never to pull another trigger or have contact with the spy world again. Until she meets Casper Grady…

Grady is a former Marine with a troubled past and a debt to pay. His life mission has gone from protecting the nation to helping local children and their families. The moment he meets Sandra, he knows there’s more to her than meets the eye, but he can’t help but be drawn to the mysterious femme fatale. And when Sandra’s past suddenly catches up to her, Grady is determined to protect her at all costs, no matter how dark and dangerous her secrets are.

As the danger increases, so does their intense attraction. But when they’re forced to choose between each other and the people they’ve sworn to protect, their growing love might not be enough to keep them together—or alive…


Exclusive excerpt:

From the author:

Thank you so much for spending some time with me today! I just wanted to give a quick introduction of myself before we get to the fun part…the excerpt! My name is P.A. DePaul and I’m the author of the Romantic Suspense, SBG series. Exchange of Fire, SBG #1 introduces a clandestine Black Ops team working for SweetBriar Group (AKA SBG), a corporation the rest of the world believes is an environmental company. I truly appreciate you stopping by and I look forward to chatting with you. If you have any questions or just want to say hi, please feel free to comment! 🙂

In this excerpt, our hero, Casper Grady, and Talon, a teammate of Wraith (heroine) in Delta Squad are at it again. Grady has suspected from the moment he met Talon that the man is in love with Wraith. It’s rankled Grady something fierce and even though he currently has no claim on Wraith, he can’t help but stick it to Talon. Prior to this scene, Grady and Wraith, with the help of Delta Squad, just thwarted another assassination attempt.



Talon dropped a backpack by the corner as well as a few other items they must have gotten from the assassin. “Car’s already in a prime spot to be picked up by the police.” He took his wet hat off and tossed it by the backpack. “We stripped it and wiped it down. Disposed of the trash in the woods too.”

“Dry clothes are still in the truck,” Magician said, thumbing toward the garage.

Grady swallowed the last of his beer and held it up. “Talon, make yourself useful and grab another one for me since you’re headed that way.”

“I look like a barmaid to you?”

Grady smirked. “You look like a lot of things to me, but, hey, if you want to call yourself a woman and chase after men, who am I to judge?” He plunked the bottle down and smiled at Talon’s clenched fists. “Fugly or not, I’m sure you can find a guy—”

Talon leapt but got jammed back by Romeo.

Cappy gripped Grady’s shoulder, and he sucked in a breath at the pain. Glass buried in farther. “Knock it off, both of you,” Cappy ordered, his tone drill-sergeant sharp.

Grady continued to hold Talon’s stare, refusing to be the first to back down.

The prick narrowed his eyes and opened his stance as if to invite Grady to launch himself this time.

“I said knock it off,” Cappy barked. “That’s an order.”

The bastard lifted his chin and mouthed, Later. Grady nodded and the prick looked away.
