Once I Was A SoldierShe broke her widowed father’s heart with her cold and callous demeanor, her passions that were different than his, her lack of interest in the family empire and her lust for money. When he died, Melissa Iverson was determined to squeeze every drop out of her inheritance, no matter who got hurt in the process. Melissa was not prepared for the web of lies and deceit she became enmeshed in when she met Terry, the undercover British intelligence agent, or the fact that she would not be his only conquest.

The wife of an American presidential nominee is determined to gain more power than she has in the world’s arena. Her involvement with the intelligence agent would bring political intrigue, while Karma seemed to be paying young Melissa back in spades as they share the charming agent’s affections and prowess. Someone wants Melissa dead, and no continent seems safe. Politics, power and sexual gratification will drive this mystery to a conclusion that can shape global alliances while bringing one young woman to her knees in a fight for survival against vengeance.

Daniel Kemp’s ONCE I WAS A SOLDIERis filled with deceit, personal and political machinations, and one woman’s stark look in the mirror that is her life. Dark, detailed and filled with emotional landmines, this tale of intrigue is perfect for those who do need any fluff or even to like the characters they will be spending several hours with. While not a fast-paced read, there is a depth to this story that runs deep with a plethora of details to absorb.
