The word bounces

around inside my head like a

pinball racking up points till my brain goes

I didn't set out to be a failure, and certainly not so young,

As a child, I played dress up and with my friends and

dolls, imagining how wonderful it would be to reach adulthood, marry, and live

happily ever after. Normally two-out-of-three would be great odds, right? Except I messed up on the

"Happily Ever After" part.

I remember my friends telling me, probably because it happened again JUST last night,

divorce is no big deal, but they lied. It changes you, even if

divorce is the only logical recourse, it's still a

How could I have been so blind? What made me think what we'd shared in the beginning, was so

perfect? How do I ever

my own judgment again?

"Get back on the horse, and ride again," my friends all say; the same friends that tell me divorce is no big deal. They

lied about that, so I'm pretty sure

climbing on that horse again is not a smart way for me to go. Besides I've got

real issues to concern myself with.

Like...maybe I should become something...something independent. How? Okay, maybe I need to take some

baby steps here.

Work! I probably should think about that, since it really is true money does not grow on trees. Being a

waitress at the

donut shop doesn't sound very glamorous does it? But it's good, steady work...a

stepping stone?

It certainly is a new start, and with that

"failure" word bopping in and out of my brain, a new start sounds right to me. My boss is

cool, and the customers? They're mostly cool too.

I was adapting really well until the day I noticed him...the six foot hunk of a

delivery guy. I so did not WANT to notice him! Didn't want to notice ANY guy. Hardly matters now, though. I've noticed him and there's no turning back the

hands of time.

Still, there are just some things you know right off really can't be good, right?

So a quick recap:

Ann works at the Donut Shop, Tom delivers and

sparks begin flying as insistently as

powdered sugar snow storms off

cream filled delicacies. As a devotee of delicious confections, this is a story you just cannot pass up. I mean seriously, where else can you devour

forbidden sweets without worrying about them going right to your

Life is never

calm, cool, and collected when you were created to be a sneaky

weapon of mass destruction.

I am Nadia Velasquez. Six months ago I woke in an Oregon hospital and learned that I may look like your average woman on the outside, but looks in my case are

super deceiving.

Fashioned by the

evil Pinnacle, a cabal secretly trying to control the entire world as the power behind

governments and

thrones, I took exception to my designated purpose and along with rogue

FBI agent Jon Daniels, destroyed the lab and exposed the Pinnacle and its connections for what it is.

That was then, now is...well, now...is

six months in the future.

Jon and I are spending quality time together...as quality as is possible for a...hmmm,

I'm still not really sure what I am, and a HUMAN man. I think I may be a bit out of my depth.

While Jon and I are taking

baby steps towards who knows what, we are about to learn The Pinnacle has not

slithered away in defeat after all.

They have a secret lab...again...elsewhere!

Everyone knows evil does not die easily. You cut off one arm or one head and like the mythical

Hydra, three more replace it. The Pinnacle, a king maker, ruling the world from behind, above, and around every throne, is the equivalent of that

evil that cannot easily be obliterated.

A bloody massacre of retaliation leaves this country without a vice president, his assassination along with the beheading of every team member behind the destruction of that Oregon lab, call Jon and I back into action.

But before we can even THINK about success, we must get through The Pinnacle's most deadly...deadlier than me?...weapon,

Jenna Paine.

Who will survive, who will die, and will

The Pinnacle finally be
