Former Delta Force operator Rhys Sinclair defied the odds by recovering from a traumatic brain injury that should have killed him. Given the chance to repay the beautiful doctor who saved his life by guarding hers, he can’t say no--even if it means facing an unknown threat from the cunning terrorist his CIA-sanctioned team had been hunting in Afghanistan. The catch is, she can't know about it without blowing their cover.
Trauma surgeon Neveah Adams is finally putting her life back together after her horrific experience in Afghanistan. Giving the keynote speech at a medical conference in Vancouver is her starting point. With Rhys there to watch over her she feels safe for the first time in months, and her biggest problem is trying to hide her intense feelings for him.
But Rhys knows something Neveah doesn’t. The terrorist who targeted her in Kabul is coming after her again, and he’s relentless enough to ensure all his past mistakes are erased with one final strike. Now that the nightmare from her past has resurfaced, Neveah has no choice but to put her trust in the one man who has the ability to break her heart, never knowing an assassin is closer than they realize.
Rhys Sinclair is a Delta Force Operative on a mission in Afghanistan to save a group of American doctors being held prisoner by the leader of a terrorist group. He comes across Dr. Neveah Adams, huddled over the body of an injured co-worker, and after rescuing them is severely injured when his vehicle explodes, witnessed by Dr. Adams. Galvanized into action, she helps save him from the burning wreckage and all are air lifted to the hospital.
This book was a pleasant surprise. It is fast paced, laced with romance and steamy sex. The heroine is a real woman, tough yet all female and never a push over for her sexy, tall dark and mysterious hero. The action has you sitting on the edge of your seat, turning page after page because you dare not put it down until you find out what happens next.
If you like mysteries, thrillers and plenty of action with hot steamy sex thrown into the mix, this is the book for you.
