"A taut exhilarating romance"
Winston Industry security chief Maddy Guthrie believes
she screwed up her assignment of watching over her
employer's teenage daughter Dawn. Though her charge
slipped her a sleeping pill, Maddy feels culpable for
enabling Dawn to flee to Manhattan. Calling in ex-CIA
agent Jack Connors for help, he finds out that thugs
working for Oliver Reynold abducted Dawn. Because Oliver
hates Dawn's dad, Maddy and Jack worry about the victim's
safety, as this is not an "ordinary" kidnapping. Oliver
holds Dawn prisoner on Orchid Island in the Caribbean.
To safely expedite Dawn, Jack poses as a wealthy man
while Maddy acts as his plaything. Jack forces Maddy to
share sex with him before they go undercover so that their
performance seems genuine. The sex is more than great and
soon the two operatives fall in love. However, their
feelings must be kept in abeyance as the danger mounts for
them and Dawn.
BODY CONTACT is an exhilarating romance that is
literally and figuratively action-packed undercover. The
story line is loaded with sexual tension and taut suspense
though Jack's initial insistence of sharing sex before the
tropical encounter seems more like a bad male ploy. Still
Rebecca York cleverly blazes a heated suspense that will
garner her new readers who will also want to follow
secondary character Alex Shane's adventures in Harlequin
Intrigue's upcoming FROM The SHADOWS.
