Undercover mercenary Trace Rivers loves the adrenaline rush of a well-planned mission. First he'll earn the trust of corrupt businessman Murray Coburn, then gather the proof he needs to shut down the man's dirty smuggling operation. It's a perfect scheme—until Coburn's long-lost daughter saunters in with her own deadly plan for revenge.
With a smile like an angel and fire in her eyes, Priscilla Patterson isn't who she seems to be. But neither is the gorgeous bodyguard who ignites all her senses. Joining forces to plot Coburn's downfall, Priss and Trace must fight the undeniable heat between them. For one wrong move, one lingering embrace, will expose them to the wrath of a merciless opponent….
This book is ridiculously easy to fall into. I started reading, got sucked in, and came up for air half way through the book and I didn't even realize it. I loved the theme surrounding this book, I don't think human trafficking gets nearly enough attention it needs to get. It is a large problem all over the world and I wish there was more normal people could do to combat it. Until then...we have Trace.
Priss's character, while pretty cool, confused me often. I could never get a real read on her between her acting for Murray and her normal self with Trace, I could never really tell where she stood. Trace however is a wonderful character, you know from page one what he is about and I like a straight forward character I can relate to. Some of the secondary characters were cool, such as Liger, the Maine Coon cat. I have a Norwegian Forest Cat, which Maine Coons are said to descend from, so I love Liger.
The plot of this book is not predictable, but nor surprising either. I liked it for what it was and I think it moved at an excellent pace. Ms. Foster's writing puts the reader at ease. You can free to get into the story and don't get distracted by extraneous detail or rambling. I will definitely read more from this author. I am so glad I found her.
