Three months after rescuing Olivia Wolfe from danger, Aegis Security operative Landon Miller still can’t stop thinking about her, even though she’s off-limits in every way possible. Knowing he’s leaving Aegis and returning to the DIA soon, Landon decides it’s time for their flirty online relationship to end. But Olivia can’t stop thinking about Landon, either. On a whim, she takes a leave of absence from her teaching job to surprise him in Barcelona—and arrives to find a sexy redhead in his hotel room.
Things aren’t always what they seem, though. Landon’s would-be one-night stand is really a member of the Red Brotherhood, a terrorist group targeting Landon for information on a lethal bioweapon. And now Olivia is unwittingly ensnared in their deadly plot, too. Forget escaping emotionally unscathed; Olivia just wants to make it home alive. Yet to survive, she’ll have to put her trust in the very man who not only broke her heart, but whose lies now threaten both their lives.
In the second book in bestselling author Elisabeth Naughton’s popular Aegis series, heart-pounding suspense stirs up deliciously sizzling romance.
I was first introduced to Elisabeth Naughton’s writing when a friend recommended her Stolen Trilogy; – I now highly recommended that series to others. While I have read (and enjoyed) the majority of the installments in her paranormal series, the Eternal Guardians, I prefer her suspense writing.
The author did an amazing job with this second full-length novel of the Aegis Security series. Both Olivia and Landon were written with such a heartrending impact that I felt their anguish. Even during those seemly meaningless moments the undertones spoke of distress and loneliness. Mixing suspense with romance must be handled skillfully - ensuing proper balance is maintained. This is not a fairytale romance…the characters are put through hell (a few times).
The author hit the target with this story.
