When it’s time for double-agent Jordan Jakes, a CIA covert operative, to launch a missile in the remote desert of the Middle East, she’s forced to tell her blind asset, NASA scientist Ben Johnson, that their love affair is finished. Only the breakup turns out to be more difficult than she anticipates – and it’s not just because she’s developed intense feelings for the guy.
When she disappears without a trace, Ben will stop at nothing to find the one woman who he’s fallen for hard and fast even if it means boarding a plane that lands him in the middle of a country most Americans might think twice about entering – Iran.
Surviving takes more than being one step ahead of their enemies.
Jordan and Ben must peel back the layers of their emotional armor to overcome a series of obstacles before they can accomplish Jordan’s mission. If they have any hope of making it out of the Middle East alive and forming a lasting relationship they must surrender to love.

When given the opportunity to name his second child, Daco’s father, a physicist who spent every day of his life pondering the Special and General Theories of Relativity, jumped at the chance of formulating her name. From conception to birth, she is both name and formula. Pronounced with a soft “a” and long “o” the name sounds a little French, but is scientifically based in a physics formula:
The derivative (D) of acceleration (A) at the speed of light in cm per second (C) is equal to zero (O), where C is same in E = mC2.
If you haven’t guessed already, Daco’s father had a sense of humor; there is no change in acceleration at the speed of light because the speed of light is the fastest rate of speed we know of, now at least, so in essence he named Daco the speed of light.
Born at the Naval hospital in Bethesda, Maryland and raised in Wernher von Braun’s Rocket City of Huntsville, Alabama, Daco holds a B.A. and M.A.S. from The University of Alabama in Huntsville and a J.D. from the Cumberland School of Law. When not practicing law, she’s encouraging her children to become future scientists and writing novels. Visit her online at AuthorDaco.com, and on Facebook, Twitter, and Goodreads.
