James "Jose Cuervo" is committed to his job as a pararescueman and little else. His job demands complete focus or his team could die. And then he has a one night stand with Interpol agent Stella Carson, and focus is shot to hell. Now thrown on a fateful mission together deep in the African jungle, they question the truth while fighting Jose's fears and Stella's tragic past. It's up to them to decide between letting the spark fizzle or a life of forever.
This is an author who knows her military background well. It made for a flawless, realistic read that's hard to put down. The characters were well drawn, complete with imperfections and fears. The setting was detailed, putting you right in the moment. The action was hammering and intriguing. The plot was steady and real. And the romance was hot. Really hot. My only quirk was I felt the conflict a touch lacking, and the ending wrapped quickly from an emotional standpoint. In saying that, I highly recommend!
