After riding herd on the testosterone-filled agents at Carpenter Security, Stephanie Barnes has earned a little R & R. Too bad her luxurious Costa Rican holiday gets turned upside down when armed mercenaries overrun the villa where she’s staying. Taken hostage, she’s forced to use her wits to keep the others calm and the situation from spiraling out of control.
Etienne Boudreau is counting the hours until the end of his mandated time off until he can see Stephanie again. All it takes is one harried S.O.S. message from his brother to catapult him into action. His goal: Save the one woman he’s loved from the moment he saw her. Etienne scrambles to assemble a team for the most important rescue mission of his life.
Deep in the Costa Rican jungle secrets, deception, and hidden threats are uncovered. Desire heats up as Etienne and Stephanie struggle to find their way out of danger while their forbidden attraction can no longer be hidden. Can they thwart an egotistical madman hellbent on revenge, or will time run out?
A lot of intrigue and strong characters. Loved the plot and action and the HEA at the end.
