When Dare Macintosh rescues a friend's young sister from a white slavery ring in Tijuana, Mexico, he also liberates a woman who doesn't fit the profile. Why 30-year-old, best-selling suspense author Molly Alexander had been captured is a mystery even to her. Yet someone again tries to kidnap her from a busy store parking lot, so she and Dare head for the safest place he knows—his Kentucky estate. Family members, a former fiancé, and a nutty fan top the suspect list, but getting to the truth won't be easy—and neither will resisting the couple's reluctant but growing attraction.
VERDICT Steamy, edgy, and taut, this romantic thriller is the first entry in a back-to-back trilogy (Trace of Fever [Jun.] and Savor the Danger [Jul.]) highlighting mercenary heroes "who walk the edge of honor" and only accept missions that advance worthy causes. Get the summer off to a sizzling start. Ohio-based Foster (Back in Black) is a prolific and popular author noted for her sexy, fast-paced romances.
