“There is a lot be said in favor of a talented author bringing a combination of romance, heat, and adventure to what otherwise could be a very tired genre. Leedom brings it all!”
When the Miami mafia comes banging on her best friends’ door demanding repayment of a loan, April Linus decides to turn to an even more dangerous criminal for help… her father.
Not an easy choice for the former heiress who left home at 19 when she discovered she was pregnant. Her father agrees to handle the loan shark on the condition April accepts an internship with his company and comes home. Determined to save her friends, she accepts the deal and moves back to the family mansion where she comes face to face with the last person she ever expected to see again.
Black Ops operative Jonas Ostergaard made a nearly fatal mistake four years ago. After working his way into Philip Linus’ circle of trust, Jonas let April distract him from his mission. He was yanked off the job by his superiors and reassigned, but now he’s been ordered back to finish what he started and he’s determined to see it through to the end, even if that means having to work up close and personal with the one woman who has the power to bring him to his knees.
When Jonas persuades April to help him stop her father from selling a dangerous new technology to a corrupt foreign government, they end up on the run dodging arms dealers in the steamy Amazon rainforest. They quickly learn that together, they can fight anything except for their smoldering attraction to each other.
But April starts to wonder what kind of relationship she could have with a man who has more secrets than she does. A man who could disappear at any time, just like he did before.
Torn between loyalty to her father and a new allegiance with the man she’s falling in love with, April realizes none of it will matter if they don’t escape the jungle alive.
