"strong suspense thriller"
In a Chicago dive, Eli Conners awaits the arrival of the
meanest SOB that a firm he contacted for special help
employed. Into the bar walks a beautiful woman, who joins
him. The company sent Ray "don't call me Jean" Vereker,
who confidently informs Eli that she is the best and
baddest. She will go to Central America to retrieve his
kidnapped brother, as she already knows where he is held.
After seeing her "perform" and reading her resume and
accolades, Eli hires her, but insists he accompany her when
she goes to free nineteen year old Jeremy held in Mataya.
As they trek through the jungle, they fall in love,
steaming up the already heated environment. However, he is
an upper crust business mogul while she is a lower class
mercenary making a permanent relationship seem impossible.
Though readers will find it difficult that behind the desk
even diligently working out Eli can keep pace with a pro
like "bad girl" Ray in a deadly jungle scenario, the
story line is hotter than the locale as the lead duo find
love in an UNEXPECTED place, time and person. Lori Foster
provides her usual strong suspense thriller with a gender
bending twist on her bad boy tales.
