I loved it and I just breezed right through it I forgot how happy a good, romantic suspense by Cindy Gerard could make me feel There was just enough steamy romance between the H h to go along with the

Gerard could make me feel There was just enough steamy romance between the H h to go along with the easy to follow, gripping, gem smuggling suspense plot taking place in the steamy Honduran backcountry I enjoyed the relationship between the quiet, somewhat tortured hero, 35 year old former Black Ops, Inc a covert, private security team hunk and now rancher Sam Lang, and the smart, brave, and loyal to a fault heroine, 27 year old Las Vegas casino dealer student Abbie Hughes No rehashing of the plot here, other than to say it was a chance for Sam to deal with a long time thorn in his side enemy who really, really did him and his family wrong while helping Abbie rescue her missing always making the wrong choices kid brother from this slimy terrorist bad guy A nice amount of background info on the characters made me feel as if I really knew them and knew their motivations for their actions, so there were no WTH moments for me I also enjoyed Sam s relationship and camaraderie with the other members of his Black Ops family Savage, Doc, Reed, and Mendoza and Abbie s relationship with best friend Crystal, and can t wait to follow up on their individual stories.Kudos to the author for making me fall hard for the character of Sam after he did something un hero like to the heroine to get info from her near the beginning of the story I understand why he did it but I just didn t enjoy seeing the heroine who was the kind of person you could imagine as being your friend get hurt And kudos to the character of Abbie for being a forgiving kind of person who doesn t whine or carry a grudge, otherwise she never would have had her hot, steamy moments in the Honduran waters with the apologetic, quiet but sexy Sam Loved these two together After the tense but exciting conclusion, where Abbie, Sam, and his teammates take down the bad guys, I felt that the rest of the story was a bit rushed I sure would have liked to readof the relationship between Abbie and Sam that obviously developed between the time they got back from the mission and the time of the epilogue, but which was largely just summed up A couple of pages of details would have been nice But that s just a minor complaint, because I sure did enjoy the epilogue where we got to revisit the characters of Gabe and Jenna from Show No Mercy as well as watch Sam and his family Doc, Savage, Reed, and Mendoza get together again.All in all a great romantic suspense served up with some exciting, action hero moments, smart characters who you ll want to see fall in love with each other, and a nice HEA wrapped up in a fitting epilogue I couldn t ask for much4 1 2 stars This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here Yet another winner by Ms Gerard I am

little upset with him when he first slept with Abbie as it was wrong and he knew it The way that Ms Gerard portrayed Abbie s pain it was amazing, I could almost feel that pain myself and it made me reach for the box of tissues But of course Sam was truely attracted to her and fought that attraction but lost and it hurt him to think that she was guilty of drug running with her brother I am glad that he finally believed that she wasn t capable of it and therefore couldn t be involved Now Abbie, she was amazing and so strong and held it together enough to help rescue her brother and then get the bad guy I would have liked to see a bitof the romance relationship between Sam Abbie and found that this book concentratedon the action but I still enjoyed it none the less and would recommend to
