BOOK SYNOPSIS
A woman without a past. A man without explanations.

Their love has no beginning. No end...? Kira Gunn, 25-year-old wunderkind, remembers nothing about her life before 31-year-old Vincent Carson. He’s been her guardian, her protector, her business partner and her passion for 15 years, yet he remains an enigma who seems to exist solely to give her everything she wants and needs. Who is he? Where did he come from? Who is she and where did she come from? The vague nightmares she’s had as long as she can remember—gunshots, utter terror and the gentle eyes of salvation—and Vincent’s tender resistance to help her discover the answers of her uncertain past are taking its toll on her body, her heart and her soul. How can she trust a man whose past is as gray as her own? But how can she leave Vincent, the only home she’s ever known? For he is her salvation.

The love they share is no ordinary love...

Kira has become the sole reason for Vincent’s existence since the moment her vulnerable, trusting child eyes met his own. As Kira struggles with unseen demons, Vincent fiercely guards the truth, even as his own heart takes the wounds of her battle. She wants the one thing he can never give her. To seek out the truth of her past would be to put both of their lives in danger...and could mean losing the only thing in the world that matters to Vincent—Kira’s love.

BOOK EXCERPTS
Chapter 1

“You’ve been a tyrant today.” Vincent Carson’s gentle, unmistakable voice floated to her from the doorway of her office much later in the day than she’d expected him to appear. “Welcome back, love.”

Kira couldn’t control her need to look at him, but she could control her rigid expression as she growled, “I leave for a little while, and everyone falls into slovenly habits.”

Vincent shook his head, not commenting on the state of her own cluttered office as he straightened from leaning against the door frame. Kira clenched her jaw to hold back the instinctive moan cramming itself into her throat and begging relentlessly for release. She’d been gone forever...or may as well have been for how good it felt to see him. Her chest felt impossibly tight watching him enter the room in strides that seemed to eat up her resolve along with the distance between them.

The casually sophisticated clothes he wore could have been nothing at all for the reaction she had to it. God, it wasn’t even the clothes Vincent wore so much as the way they flowed against his body with animal-like grace. Though he worked out religiously every day and his muscles were hard as rock, she knew only too well how smooth his skin was. Like steel encased in velvet.

“You’ve been gone three months, Kira.”

Somehow he made that sound even longer than it’d felt to her.

I didn’t even think of him. I told myself I didn’t notice the time. The void I felt without him. I didn’t let myself.

“Everything we needed to get done was done. Profits were up this quarter, as usual,” he said, reminding her what she well knew.

The closer he came, the fiercer the pressure coiled in her chest. She could see him again, smell his spicy cologne, so familiar. At one time, his scent had comforted her. Now it heated her blood and made her heart pound painfully. She could feel him before he’d even touched her. The need to be in his arms hadn’t lessened in the least during their separation.

“Did you find what you were looking for in Rome?” he asked pointedly, and her eyes narrowed as she gazed at him.

He knew. He knew she’d gone to Rome for the important business reason of searching out new fabrics for the upcoming summer line. Kira Gunn Industries always had the newest, the most innovative, the most exciting fashions. He also knew she’d stayed for no reason. No reason outside of her desire...no, not her desire...her need to escape him. He’d known the whole time, but he’d allowed her to go. He hadn’t come after her. For the first time ever, he’d given her freedom from him. In the past, her any suggestion that meant their separation for even twenty-four hours had resulted in him seeking out and unfailingly finding a more efficient way of doing the task so they could be together. Yet he’d consented for them to be apart for three endless months.

When Kira looked into his dark eyes as he stood in front of her desk, her shock turned to shame she didn’t want to feel. She’d hurt him with her need to get away and stay away from him. These past few months had been as hard on him as they’d been on her. Why? Why had he let her go? Why hadn’t he come after her? And why had he suffered without her? Why, dammit?

Forcefully shoving away her guilt, Kira turned back to the mess of papers spread out across her desk.

Nothing’s changed. In three months of agony, trying to free myself from this man, I’m right back where I started.

Even as she asked herself what she’d expected, she anticipated his understanding of her feelings now. Vincent was nothing if not empathetic when it came to her. He moved around the desk, put his gentle, tormenting hands on her shoulders, and her frustration mounted even while her willpower crumbled.

Anything she wanted, anything she needed, he would give to her. He wouldn’t think of himself for even a second. As her soul railed in aggravation at those same things, she could soak it all in.

BOOK REVIEWS
This is a page turner, taut, nail-biting thriller interwoven with a poignant, powerful romance. It is truly a book I could not put down. There are some spicy love scenes, but emotions far outweigh lust. My need to learn who actually are the good guys and the bad drove me to turn page after page. Revelations came just often enough to keep me off balance until the end, which is happy in spite of all the angst to get there. My recommendation? Buy it. Read it. Soon!

"NO ORDINARY LOVE is a superbly written story that will keep readers entertained from the first word to the last. This reviewer read the book in one setting. I was just unable to put it down. Ms. Wiesner has given readers a book not to be missed, one that will have readers ready and waiting for book two in the Incognito Series." ~MyShelf.com

5 Stars! "This is the first book in the Incognito Series. I found it to be a very solid foundation for what could very well turn out to be one of the best romantic suspense novels of the year. It overflows in action and drama, with just the right amount of romance. Pre-order a copy if you can. Outstanding!" ~Reviewed by Detra Fitch for Huntress Reviews

5 Cups! "NO ORDINARY LOVE is no ordinary book. Vincent and Kira are transcendent characters, almost larger than life, yet very human in their flaws and frailties. Love burns bright between them, but for Kira it is tarnished with fear, and for Vincent intertwined with duty. Can they
possibly escape this baggage and build a real relationship? This is a page turner, taut, nail-biting thriller interwoven with a poignant, powerful romance. It is truly a book I could not put down. There are some spicy love scenes, but emotions far outweigh lust. My need to learn who actually are the good guys and the bad drove me to turn page after page. Revelations came just often enough to keep me off balance until the end, which is happy in spite of all the angst to get there. My recommendation? Buy it. Read it. Soon!" ~Coffee Time Romance

5 Beacons! "This first book of the Incognito Series has me hooked! I was completely engrossed with these characters from word one. Page after page, I felt more connected to the story-line and was extremely impressed by how Ms. Wiesner worked in the underground tunnels and "mole people" that inhabit them. What a wonderful piece of originality. Typically a book on secret organizations and espionage can be very predictable and flat, but there was never a time I felt that this book was lacking. Very nicely done!" ~Lighthouse Literary Reviews
