Gwen Harrison, sister of Blake Harrison, has been in love with her brother’s head of security for years. Now living in America and working for Sam’s company, Alliance, she is spending more and more time with Neil MacBain. Despite her obvious flirting, Neil stands fast in not acting towards his own attraction to Gwen.
When Gwen becomes the lure by an unknown man to get at Neil he stops at nothing to keep her safe. Heading across country on their own survival road trip, Neil and Gwen soon find that the lust they share cannot be held at bay. Will they succumb? And can love blossom when lives are on the line?
Nice to see Neil showing his human side in this tale where he is forced to revel his true feelings. The characters in this series are really coming together now. As well as running with the main story of Gwen and Neil, we also have a side story relating to Karen and Michael.
Neil’s military background comes into play within this story along with some former marines, but just who can he trust. This book kept me guessing and there are twists and turns throughout. Similar to the previous book, there is lots of suspense, but where this one differs is that we do not know who is really after them until the very end. Blake, also, does not take kindly to his sister being the focus of a madman. As well as a good storyline this book introduces us to new characters that you know are going to be the forefront of future novels with exciting twists and turns along the way.
Bring on Michael and Karen in the next instalment!
