Book Description from goodreads.com
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….
First things first, Priscilla was referred to Priss throughout this book, which made me CRAZY. I hate stupid names, and I thought this one topped the cake.
Priss claims to be the daughter of a corrupt businessman, whom Trace is “security” for. Trace is instantly attracted to her and feels the need to find out what she’s really up to and help her avoid danger. I have to say the human trafficking theme of these books is disturbing. It appears in each book of this series. But it is written gracefully and not graphically. I appreciated that aspect.
This book was very suspensful. I like how secretive and security minded the guys in this series are. The romance in these books is good as well.
Highly recommend this series.
