It’s the toughest assignment of her life
American journalist Danica Lorenzo faces the toughest assignment of her life when the CIA gives her two weeks to negotiate the release of her kidnapped step-brother in the Philippines. She’ll do anything to save him, even if it means tangling with a deadly smuggling ring.
Danica’s editor, Grant Scott, doesn’t expect her to last long in a country that was his former beat. To keep his star reporter alive, he agrees to help Danica navigate its treacherous islands. As Danica and Grant plunge deep into the Philippine jungle, they fight not only dangers and betrayals, but also the undeniable attraction between them.
A sudden wave of tenderness washed over Danica. At the start, she wasn’t sure about Grant, whether they would get along. He had intimidated her, but now his secret was out. She could count on him to help her when the going got tough.
Her gaze grazed over his curlier-than-usual hair, his strong, capable hands, his burly build, and suddenly a desire so fierce hit her from out of the blue. It was just gratitude, she told herself, tearing her eyes from him and watching the road, even as every fiber of her being was aware of him sitting beside her. Close enough to touch. Close enough to pat him on the back and ask him, are you okay? Close enough to kiss him on the cheek, his jaw, his neck…
Danica, she told herself, stop it! He had given her his gas mask. Big deal. So she was thankful.
On to the next adventure!
