Back Cover Blurb:
Abby Thompson didn’t sign up to be the daughter of the President of the United States. The position was forced on her by the small matter of her birth. Preferring a quiet life of study, she’s content to leave the politics and the international intrigue to her father. Unfortunately, the most powerful man on the planet is sure to make enemies. When a group of armed thugs takes her hostage half a world away, demanding the U.S. government release prisoners in exchange for her safe return, she fears her father’s policy of “not negotiating with terrorists” means she’ll never see the shores of the Potomac again. Luckily, there’s one glimmer of hope. His name is Carlos Soto. And though she abruptly ended things with him years ago, she knows now he’s the only man who can save her…
Black Knights, Inc. to the Rescue...
Carlos “Steady” Soto has taken part in his fair share of dangerous missions working at the covert government defense firm of Black Knights Inc. But nothing prepared him for the emotional rollercoaster he faces when he’s tasked with rescuing the only woman he ever loved—who also broke his heart. Racing against time and outmaneuvering a group of trained terrorists will take everything he’s got. Plus there’s the heat simmering between them which is threatening to ignite into an inferno. While ruthless enemies stalk them, they must learn to trust each other again. Even if they do make it out alive, will Abby turn her back on him…for the second time?
Walker`s very personal characters development puts you right into the thick of this tale. You get to know the main characters on all fronts and really get inside the main characters’ heads. I loved the different views and emotions that we got to experience as Walker switched perspectives from one character to the other. I enjoyed both his and her sides of the story. The narrative really makes the characters pop. Their personalities shine through in a big way. I also found their histories, both combined and separate, to be very intriguing. There really are no words to describe the fantastic connection that I felt with these characters.
This action packed and suspenseful novel is definitely one that you won`t want to miss!
