Blurb: TROPICAL HEAT
Penny Kline didn’t come to Honduras on a pleasure trip. She’s here to rescue her kidnapped niece, the only family she’s got left. What she didn’t plan on was walking into a covert ops mission—or being wrapped up in the hard-muscled arms of Rafe Ortega. The cool-as-ice operative’s touch may get her all hot and bothered, but no man can have a hold on her heart until her niece is home where she belongs.
Even in the tropics, Alpha Security operative Rafe can take down the bad guys without breaking a sweat. Hostage extractions. Clandestine missions. Those are the things he’s been trained to handle. Relationships? Not so much. But one look at this strong, sexy redhead and he’s seized by a fierce urge to protect her at all costs. Now Penny and Rafe will have to up their game because they’re about to go into a master criminal’s lair without backup, and the danger—and passion—is about to explode . . .
Review: This testosterone enhanced romantic mystery involves more than finding Diego Fuentes, the notorious leader of a drug cartel. Or stopping the shipment of a new designer drug guaranteed to make the drug lord incredibly wealthy and cause horrible problems to the people who end up being guinea pigs. Rafe and his group are there working covert ops for the government when what to their wandering eyes should appear?
When you first meet a man you’re interested in, usually you try to avoid kicking him in the crotch. Just a good rule of thumb. But when you’re in Honduras casing a place you think your niece might be hidden in and you’re accosted from behind behind by a large man, you do what’s must expedient and ask for forgiveness later. Penny didn’t know the men who surrounded her were on her side. Luckily her surrogate big brother Trey was there to help her explain to the man she’d racked–Rafael Ortega. He didn’t know she’d left her job and was now a bond enforcement officer–you basic bounty hunter.
So Alpha Security was there to capture Diego and so was Penny. But her reason was to find her niece, Rachel, who’s been taken hostage and disappeared. It had been a month, and with the kind of people who’d kidnap a woman for the sex trade… She was either dead or wished she was. Penny couldn’t stand it, and she meant to find Rachel wherever she was and take her home.
How she proves herself and gets involved in the game only adds fodder to Rafael’s interest in her. But will they end up dead before they can get to know one another? Read it and find out!
The blistering suspense, along with hot temptation and long nights, leads these two characters to places they might not be ready for. But sometimes in life you have to step up and take a shot. Thanks!
