AGENT T3: D’ARTAGNAN

D.I.R.E. Agency, #3

 

She lost her memory.

He lost everything.

Together, they need to find a way to save the world.

d’Artagnan (Dar) Naylor: trained by the best, disciplined by the toughest, and raised by the vilest – his father. He bought into his family’s life of crime, until he learned the reasons behind it.

Now, he possesses enhancements installed by The D.I.R.E. Agency – an organization he once called enemy. He has to stop the traitors from the past before they destroy the future.

Jocelyn Chalmers wakes up in the future without a memory. All she’s certain of is the fear in her gut and her blinding attraction to gorgeous, protective D.I.R.E. agent, d’Artagnan Naylor.

When close quarters prove too much for their passionate hunger, Dar knows his future is destined for hard decisions. Once Jocelyn’s memory is restored, she begs Dar to return to the past and save the world.

Yet, to change the past, changed the future. How can they be certain of the consequences of his actions? How can he return her to the past where she belongs after all they’ve shared?

Turbulent times come to a head when the past sends its own destruction to the future amidst long-awaited retribution.

Can Dar escape his past to save the future? Or, does fate have its own reckoning in mind?

EXCERPT

Prologue

“We need to get her into radiology for a CT scan.”

She hovered on her back, a brisk, cool breeze washing over her face and arms. Billowy, white clouds floated past her at a leisurely pace, the scent of antiseptic stinging her nose. She fluctuated between severe pain and peace, wincing when the former bombarded her with rugged persistence. Impatience and fear held her nerve endings captive, though why, she didn’t know.

A woman’s voice sounded near her ear. “We’re wait-“

“Doctor Brentwood…”

Another woman’s voice intruded, the swish of her clothing loud in the sudden silence. Her voice held a much higher pitch than the other, marked with a hint of alarm.

“According to the national database, this woman’s name is Jocelyn Chalmers. She was born in nineteen twenty.”

A faint gasp sounded in the room.  Was she Jocelyn Chalmers? Why couldn’t she remember?

“Obviously, that can’t be right,” the doctor said, his tone flustered. “Look at her. She’s got to be in her mid-twenties.”

Was she that age? Why didn’t she know?  Agitation shoved its way into the divide of her body, taking over peace altogether.

“Check again.” The man’s request sounded more like an order.

“I confirmed the information three times because I didn’t believe it myself. I even had Zach confirm for me.”

Clothing rustled above her head.

“What does that mean?” the other woman said.

Dr. Brentwood’s warm breath washed over her face. “I don’t know…”

She heard him step away, his footsteps echoing in the distance. “Take her fingerprints again, just to be sure, then get her over to radiology.”

“Yes, doctor.”

“Regardless of her age, she needs our care. While you do that, I’m going to make a call.”

REVIEWS

  …As a whole I absolutely loved the D.I.R.E. Agency series, but I have to admit, AGENT T3: D’ARTAGNAN was definitely the most involved, complex story of the three (and I sincerely hope there will be more D.I.R.E. Agency stories in the future).  Aside from the sweet romance brewing between Jocelyn and Dar, there are stunning revelations about the connections between everyone involved constantly being revealed – and the heartbreaking reality that sometimes family just can’t be trusted.  Dar and Jocelyn are ‘two of a kind’, they’ve done things they aren’t proud of, but their outlook on life is heartwarming and it’s so obvious they genuinely love each other even if a future between them is uncertain.

AGENT T3: D’ARTAGNAN is the third title in Joni Hahn’s D.I.R.E. AGENCY series and I’m kind of bummed that there aren’t any more available so I can get my fix of hunks with special abilities, that’s alright though since I’m sure I’ll be rereading these and haunting Ms. Hahn’s website for news about upcoming titles.

“Hahn delivers thrilling conclusion in book three of D.I.R.E. Agency series”

Hahn delivers thrilling conclusion in book three of D.I.R.E. Agency series

Be prepared to stay up all night when you’re reading one of Joni Hahn’s D.I.R.E. Agency series. Packed with suspense, alpha heroes, and strong sassy, intelligent, and independent heroines, these romances deliver on every front. There’s a touch of paranormal with the enhanced-heroes and time travel; plenty of thrills; and, above all, romance.

Each of the three books in the series profiles a different agent, in book three, Agent T3: d’Artagnan provides needed understanding of Cass’ twin brother Dar. (Cass is the heroine of book two) i don’t want to give away any spoilers for the earlier books in the series, but just let me tell you, time travel factors significantly into this plot. If you’re a fan of Doctor Who like I am, it’s not hard to suspend disbelief and imagine time travel is possible. (Wouldn’t you like it to be?) Hahn’s grasp of the possibilities and scientific probabilities make this fun. As do some villains imported from an earlier time.

The romance, well, it is quite beautiful and there were moments when I was wiping some silent tears from my face as I read Dar and Jocelyn’s story. Book three’s story itself is incredibly dynamic. I couldn’t stop myself from turning the pages and began to race to the end as it is truly compelling (and addicting).

Hahn manages to tie up quite a few loose ends with this book, but it’s only the conclusion of the first trilogy. She assures the readers that the series will continue. With two strong alpha males who were introduced in book two, I have a feeling that they well may feature into future D.I.R.E Agency stories.

In conclusion, I’d recommend that you add Joni Hahn’s D.I.R.E. Agency series to your bookshelf. I’m adding it my permanent one as this is a series I anticipate going back to reread in the future. And yes, I still want a date like Tristan gave Rachel – hopping city to city across the globe in one magical evening!

Joni Hahn’s D.I.R.E. Agency series is a MEGA five star must- read. Be prepared to stay up all night to finish it!

Agent T3: d’Artagnan, A Review

If you haven’t discovered Joni Hahn‘s D.I.R.E. Series, you are seriously missing out. Part romantic suspense, part urban fantasy and part Sci-Fi. A complicated story of passion and revenge. Of justice and forgiveness. Of love and hate. Of good and evil.

In Tristan’s book we were introduced to D.I.R.E. and it’s advanced technologies. We also found out about the complicated relationships of it’s founders. In Aidan, we discovered that the future is totally wrapped up in the past and what while we thought that Tristan was complicated, Aidan made it seemed like a child’s bedtime story (See my reviews HERE). You can only wonder if Ms. Hahn is going to be able to keep going. I am happy to say, that D-Artagnan’s exceeds all expectations.

Jocelyn woke up after an accident, not knowing who she was or where she came from. What could be scarier? Starting to remember. It’s a slow process and her only link to her past is sexy D.I.R.E. agent D-Artagnan (Dar). Each day brings them closer together and closer to remembering her past. Only Jocelyn isn’t aware that her past is THE past. Once her memory returns she has to decide when she belongs.

D-Artagnan Naylor was raised by the best, brought into the family business he has never doubted. But recent events have made a startling impact and Dar discovers just why his father made his choices. Lost and seemingly alone he accepts a position with D.I.R.E. and completely switches sides. Enhanced as only a D.I.R.E. agent can be Dar has been given the ability to go back in time. Only when he goes he has to take Jocelyn with him, returning her to her time…but letting go of a love that is timeless.

There are so many twists and turns in this series. It’s not overkill but you do have to pay attention. The intrigues and manipulations are brilliant. Ms. Hahn’s skill with relationships is masterful. This is not a simple case of connect the dots, first you have to find them.. and then Ms. Hahn tilts the chessboard and everything changes.

Trips back in time seem perfectly reasonable but some of the surprise passenger on the return trip shocks them all.

This book answers some questions that you didn’t even know you had. Its a book about love and family and extreme forgiveness. At times that forgiveness was a bit simplistic but it went to prove that love really can conquer all.

As with the first two books, this is a book you want to discuss. It grabs you and plays with your emotions. Offering amazing resolutions to a conflict that began a generation ago.
Dar and Jocelyn bridge more than time with this book. And while Agent T3 is the last in this trilogy Ms. Hahn did leave room for more stories(whew). I look forward to reading whatever she has to show us next.
