Description from Amazon.com:
SHE MAY BE HIS WORST ENEMY…
For deadly secret agent Peter Macmillan, language is a weapon—one he uses to hunt criminals, destroy plots, and charm enemies. Seducing information out of a beautiful singer in a Bangkok hotel should be easy…except this particular singer has the power to destroy his cool façade, and with it, his last defense against a dark past.
HE MAY BE HER ONLY HOPE…
He tricked her. He helped himself to her body and her secrets. He has enemies everywhere. Laney Lancaster should hate Peter, but when she discovers him shirtless, sweaty, and chained up in the hotel’s dungeon, all she can think about is freeing him. Because she knows what it’s like to be trapped and alone. And she could use a dangerous friend.
They might be wrong for each other, but the instant they join forces, Laney and Peter are plunged into an odyssey of hot sex and dark danger. To survive, they must trust each other with their lives—and their hearts.
Woo-Hee! Hang on to something solid cause this novel is a thriller and it leaves you breathless in it’s wake.
Laney is naïve and beautiful. Peter is hunky and oh so dangerous. Because she is naïve, she continues to try and help Peter when his purpose is to keep her clear of his job as a linguistic, hot, dangerous, warrior spy. Peter might have been able to get his job done quicker and with less personal injury if Laney had just left him alone but then the reader would have been robbed of all those great moments when she refused to leave him be.
The book starts off with a bang when we feel the terror that Laney experiences when she feels her hiding as been compromised. She feels something is about to come crashing down but those around her are continually reassuring her that all is well. All except Peter who is the one who tells her to follow her gut instinct. The pace picks up even more until we are turning pages faster and faster. The tension builds and the action is nonstop. The chemistry between Laney and Peter is smokin’ and they do take time out to explore that, but then it is flat out full steam ahead with more action, violence and blood.
This is a standalone novel in Crane’s Associates Series.
Deet’s Caveat: This novel contains strong violence and torture scenes as well as explicit sex.
