My Rating:

Book Blurb: The tougher they are, the harder they fall… 
Professional mercenary Dare Macintosh lives by one hard and fast rule: business should never be personal. If a cause appeals to him and the price is right, he'll take the mission he's offered. But then the lovely Molly Alexander asks him to help her track down the men who'd had her kidnapped—and for the first time, Dare's tempted to combine work with pleasure. 
Fiercely independent, Molly vows to trust no one until she's uncovered the truth. Could the enemy be her powerful, estranged father? The ex-fiancé who still holds a grudge? Or the not-so-shy fan of her bestselling novels? As the danger heats up around them, the only anchor Molly has is Dare himself. But what she feels for him just might be the most frightening thing of all

My Thoughts: I loved it! Such a refreshing read and for me a very different Lori Foster. So far most things I have read from her are your normal romantic comedies that we all love. She took this book to the next level and added a more complex situation. Molly was kidnapped by men who stole woman and sold them off as slaves and then the women were usually killed. You are instantly sucked in this plot. Molly is an extraordinary character in my opinion to have bounced back so quickly from this and was ready to find out who had done this to her, since her kidnapping had been arranged by someone and that was why she had been treated differently then the other women. If I had been through what Molly had, I would have crawled in a hole and cried for weeks. Then again, having someone like Dare probably helped.

I loved Dare's character. He was this man, a manly man who carries weapons and kills people, and when he's as home, he's a neat freak! It caught me off guard. I had expected him to be a total slob. He won major points in my book. As a character he was so understanding and put Molly's needs above his own.

Anyone who is a Foster fan is going to enjoy this one. If Lori Foster is an author you have yet to try, you will not be disappointed in this one. I recommend this book to anyone who likes contemporary romance, or even a romantic suspense.

I have the honor to get to review the next book in the series, Trace of Fever, so be sure to check back soon for that review. I can't wait to start it.
