24 Flares 24 Flares ×

A WOMAN ON A MISSION

After putting her life on the line to protect classified intelligence, military psychologist Mia Kensington is on a cross-country road trip from hell with an intrusive save-the-day hero. Uninterested in his white knight act, she’d rather take her chances without the ruggedly handsome, cold-blooded operative who boasts an alpha complex and too many guns.

AND THE MAN SENT TO STOP HER

Colby Winters, an elite member of The Titan Group, has a single objective on his black ops mission: recover a document important to national security. It was supposed to be an easy in-and-out operation. But now, by any means necessary becomes a survival mantra when he faces off with a stunning woman he can’t leave behind.

MUST PARTNER TO SURVIVE

When Titan’s safe houses are compromised, Colby stashes Mia at his home, exposing his secret—he’s the adoptive father of an orphaned baby girl. Too soon, danger arrives and Mia lands in the hands of a sadistic cartel king with a taste for torture. As hours bleed into fear-drenched days, Colby races across the globe and through a firestorm of bullets to save the woman he can’t live without.

If they make it out alive, can he reconcile duty and desire?

Does Mia trust her heart to a man who willingly walks into kill-zones?

Review:

This is a book about a woman and a man who meet each other during strange circumstances; at an airport trying to retrieve a package. And they aren’t the only 2 interested parties, a Columbian cartel is also desperate to get it. She must quickly assess her situation and figure out who to trust. Luckily, she makes the correct choice.
The heat between these two is obvious and the author does a great job of building the sexual tension. They are quickly on the run together. And it just never stops. I literally read this book in one day because I could not put it down. The two main characters each have a past which makes them wary of each other, of trusting, and of intimacy. But instinct on both of their parts brings them together and moves the relationship along. The dialogue between them was fast and witty and such fun to read.
But I mustn’t forget about the Columbian cartel. They are intent on not only getting the package but also the girl. This plot keeps you involved as the story takes you to Columbia. The author does a fabulous job of taking you with them on this scary journey with her vivid descriptions. The author really puts you in the story; I could almost feel the steamy jungle in Columbia and the seedy motels. I was on the edge of my seat to see what would happen and just when you think they are safe, they’re not.
Another thing I liked were the supporting characters. His work team mates were hysterical; I found myself laughing out loud at the banter between them. This story has all my favorite elements in a book; hot steamy romance, great characters and dialogue, and an exciting plot. I can’t wait to read more from this author!
Had some Pinot Grigio with this one as it is still summerlike where I live and you definitely need something cold to drink with this book!
