Named to Kirkus Reviews’ Best Books of 2018
When a food storage depot in famine-struck South Sudan is torched, American aid worker Brie Stewart flees, only to land in a market where she’s the next item up for auction. Is the attack on the aid facility another assault upon the war-torn fledgling democracy, or has her family set her up as a pawn in their quest for oil rights?
Chief Warrant Officer Sebastian Ford crossed paths with Brie years ago when she was a shill for her family’s company, pushing a pipeline that threatened his tribe’s land. Determined to lead the rescue operation to save her, he won’t let her abduction—or the attraction that flares between them—get in the way of settling their unfinished business.
The Green Beret’s skills are put to the test in the flooded grasslands of South Sudan, where they must battle nature and dangerous factions who are after more than oil. Bastian and Brie put their hearts on the line as they find themselves embroiled in a conflict that extends beyond country and continent. Together they must douse the spark before it reaches the flashpoint and engulfs everything they hold dear.

All Rachel Grant books are great.
Romantic suspense is my favourite genre and in my opinion Rachel Grant is one of the best authors out there. I have read all her books and there isn’t a dud among them. Her heroines are smart and sassy, her heroes are strong, heroic but also believable and her books lead you on a journey that will excite and intrigue. She fits in plenty of drama, lots of heat and you never feel cheated by the ending. I can’t recommend any of Rachel Grants books strongly enough if you’re a romantic suspense fan.
War torn countries and the food shortage in South Sudan was vividly described by the author. When Bree flies in as an aid worker, finding she is next on the auction block. Or was her family behind this as a ploy to furthering their company. Bastion won’t let her be abduction, and together they will fight, as the personal sparks fly for them.
What a compelling story, giving us a tension filled plot, that doesn’t stop till the end. Well done and readers will enjoy
Given ARC for my voluntary review and my honest opinion by Net Galley and Janus Publishers.
This is a definite five star read. The bad guys are many truly disgusting. This is the second book in this series and pulls the reader into the world of the Sudan, poor, undernourished, abused and heart felt sadness. The story focuses on the pillage of natural resources and the plight of those people trying to survive. Two lovers fighting the good fight, trying to make a difference in a world so warped, it is close to impossible. Excellent read. Put at the top of your TBR list.
