CIA covert operator Savannah James is after intel on a potential coup in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, but she needs a partner fluent in Lingala to infiltrate the organization. Sergeant First Class Cassius Callahan is the perfect choice, except he doesn’t like her very much. He doesn’t trust her, either, despite the sparks that flare between them, fierce and hot. Still, he accepts the assignment even though their cover requires Savvy to pose as his mistress.
They enter battle-worn Congo to expose the financing for the coup. A trail of cobalt, gold, and diamonds leads them into the heart of a jungle in which everyone is desperate to find the mother lode of ore and gems. Betrayal stalks them as they follow the money, but Savvy will stop at nothing to bring down the would-be dictator before he can ignite a firestorm that will engulf all of Africa.
Deep in the sultry rainforest, spy and Green Beret forge a relationship more precious than diamonds, but Cal knows Savvy is willing to sacrifice anything—or anyone—to complete her mission. As they near the flashpoint, Cal will have to save her from the greatest threat of all: herself.

CIA Meets Green Beret
Savannah James is CIA and is not very well liked by the men of Special Ops. They don't know her exact title, but know she's a "spy". Cal Callahan and Savvy are like oil and water, constantly bickering while fantasizing about each other. Their chemistry is off the charts. When Savvy chooses Cal as her partner, he reluctantly accepts the assignment. In reality, he's been asked to spy on Savvy while posing as a antiquities dealer. As Cal and Savvy work together, they soon realize they're being set up. On the run in the Congo, Cal and Savvy discover corrupt government officials, Russian Mafia, and an American preacher. Can they trust each other enough to destroy evil?
Mystery, intrigue, rainforests in the Congo, mini history lessons, scorching hot romance.....this novel has it ALL!!! I loved this novel. Rachel Grant's masterful writing grabs you from the first sentence. Make sure you have the afternoon free as you won't want to put this one down once you start reading. It's the third novel in the series and can be read as a stand-alone, but I encourage you to read the others as they will give you more insight into the "mystery of Savvy". I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.
Review This book was amazing. Ms. Grant reaches deep into some serious things in this book, and it just was
without a doubt wonderful. Many laugh out loud moments. Hot spicy moments. Others you don’t see coming.
CIA covert operator Savannah James aka Savvy needs a partner for an operation which will for sure be dangerous. The person she picks is someone she knows does not like her. Sergeant First Class Cassius
Callahan. He finally does accept. He’s in for some surprises.
In the middle of the Congo starts the operation. What neither expected is that there acting in order to get intel is setting real sparks between them. Things start getting dicey.
Someone is trying to frame Savvy and she doesn’t know who.
Cal and Savvy are on there own. They need help but who can they trust?
