The moment Olivia Hastings’ father was kidnapped before her eyes, she stopped thinking straight. With the need to save him foremost in her mind, she leaves the cold winter of Connecticut and chases him to the steamy jungles of Colombia. However, as soon as she sees the vast green jungle with its massive waterways trickling out of the large, bustling city, she realizes that she is in over her head and desperately needs help if she is going to save him from the violent cartel that has taken him.
It is desperation that makes her approach Danny Davis and Hayden Evans in the hotel lobby and plead for their assistance, and it is through them that she finds the mysterious Shep, a darkly sexy man she is unsure if she should trust or flee from. Yet that decision is taken out of her hands when the constant heavy rain is accompanied by the winds of a fierce impending storm.
DEA agent James Shepard was content to hide from his past in Colombia. Single and alone in a foreign country, he dedicates every waking hour to stemming the flow of illegal drugs leaving the beautiful country. It is because of this dedication that he feels responsible for the foolish woman he finds hiding in the bathroom, and he realizes quickly that she’s as important to his case as she is a nuisance in his way.
As the thunder and lightning of a strong storm rolls in and forces Shep and Olivia to develop an uneasy trust, attraction, seduction, and danger threaten their budding relationship... and their lives.
