Adam Wright’s betrayal -
“You’re mine,” he told her. His hands lowered to his sides. “Either mine to kill or mine to love. The choice is all on me…I knew it from the beginning.”
leads Rachel Mancini reluctantly into the protective arms of Dylan Foxx.
“I’m going to take care of you,” Dylan promised her. “We’re the good guys. We’re going to keep you safe.” A pause. “I’m going to keep you safe.”
Cynthia Eden dialogue and writing style, regardless of genre, always keep this reader intrigued. This is the first book in The Shadow Agents: Guts and Glory line that I have read; each is stand alone. Dylan is everything a heroine needs – sexy, protective, and 100% devoted. I loved his intimation tactics…they always brought a smile to my face. Rachel complements his character perfectly. Considering she has a killer obsessed with her I expected a meeker woman – someone in need of fortification. Instead Ms. Eden gave us an independent survivor who stands beside (or in front of) her hero.
I have added the other installments to my TBR…and if you like romantic suspense I recommend this line of Harlequin Intrigue.
