Peek Inside Willing Target

The last thing covert operative Mitch Weaver wants is to be partnered with a gorgeous, reckless newbie. Still reeling from the death of his former partner, Mitch doesn't need the responsibility of keeping anyone else alive. Not to mention, his attraction to the too-perky blonde is the kind of distraction that could get them both killed in their line of work. Andrea Carnegie thinks her new assignment could be her chance to shine. But if she wants to catch the person threatening their client, she’ll have to keep her distance from Mitch. Even as the air between them sizzles, Andrea knows the worst possible thing she could do is fall for her partner.

The last thing covert operative Mitch Weaver wants right now is to be partnered with a reckless newbie, even if she is gorgeous. Still reeling from the death of his former partner, Mitch doesn’t need the responsibility of keeping anyone else alive – a task made even harder when they volunteer to be a killer’s target. She’s too perky for her own good and too distracting by far–that could get them both killed in this line of work.

Andrea Carnegie’s first assignment isn’t exactly going as she planned. Her partner is sexy as hell, but he’s so frustrating with his determination to keep her away from anything he deems dangerous. How is she supposed to do her job? Andrea knows that masquerading as a billionaire’s sister to bait a possible killer is her chance to shine. But if she’s going to succeed, she’ll have to find a way to work with Mitch… and keep her distance. Even as the very air between them seems to sizzle, Andrea knows the worst possible thing she could do is fall for her partner.


"There is a lot of great action in this book, from dangerous serpents to gunshots and boat chases, the action never stops. [Willing Target] was a great blend of danger from the unknown and danger from the attraction between the two main characters. A really fun read!" --Kilts and Swords

"The mix between romance and the case work was perfect. Loved it." --Nicole, Goodreads

"Mix is a fantastic writer with stories that are edgy, smart and sexy. I look forward to more." --Anima, NetGalley

This was a fast-paced adventure novel with a steamy romance between a true hero and heroine.

You can not go wrong most times with operatives and drama they can attract.

This was a great read that I could not put down once I started. There was suspense and action with romance all rolled up into one and this one left me on the edge of my seat a lot.

Kathleen Mix's Willing Target is a really good read. It was a little slow for me to get into but it picked up pretty quickly and hooked me. It takes place in the topical Virgin Islands where two bodyguards/covert-ops who work for the Brisbin Rangers are working together to help protect a ...more

Complicating things are her horrible upbringing and inability to tr ...more
