Leon 'Stinger' Ortega is a Shadow Operative
...a secret agent who specializes in corporate warfare and espionage. Weathered, highly trained, and outfitted with a nanite technology that grants him accelerated healing abilities, there wasn’t a single mission he couldn’t accomplish.

But in a world where only the strongest survive, love and loyalty are constantly being tested. No amount of training or experience could have prepared Leon for the moment he learns the truth behind their fatal attraction.

A year has passed...
...since Agent Leon "Stinger" Ortega returned to his principal's side. Long gone is the subservient shadow operative of old, replaced by a shell of a man haunted by memories of a forbidden romance. One night, however, he receives an alarming wake-up call: Lucien was in mortal danger and has only days to live.
Incensed, Leon makes the irreversible decision to cast duty aside in order to return to Lucien. However, he'll quickly find that the afterlife of a rogue shadow operative is far more perilous than he could have ever imagined. Bad blood between old enemies will be the least of his concerns as he eventually finds himself entrenched in a secret mining war in Antarctica, where Omicron Incorporated and rival supercorporations are vying for the precious living alloy, animarium, the very same substance that binds him to Lucien.
To reunite with Lucien, Leon must don the armor of a corporate soldier and contend with powerful new rivals hellbent on keeping him from escaping to a new future. Though he'll be pushed to the brink of sanity, Leon remains determined to prove his love is true in this second installment of the Agent Stinger Novel Series.
