This is the latest book in Pamela Clare's I-Team series it's book three (if you don't count the short story from the series as well in Catch of the Day). In this one the main character is Sophie Alton a top-notch investigative reporter for the Denver Independent and has never had a problem putting her neck or her heart on the line for her story, but this time it just might be fatal to both.
While Sophie is doing an expose on a young mother in a corrections facility she uncovers much more than she bargained for, but ever the trooper Sophie does all she can to help the young woman get her life together and her story out. Suddenly the young woman (Megan) disappears and Sophie is more than a little worried about her and her now missing child as well. She is surprised when she is asked to come to visit the brother of Megan who is also in prison (for murder without parole). Sophie readily agrees wanting to find out anything she can to help Megan, but when she gets there Megan's brother Marc Hunter pulls a gun on her and takes her hostage in his escape.
Marc Hunter is desperate man and desperate times call for desperate actions, and to save his sister and her baby girl from the men trying to kill them he will do anything. And that includes kidnapping the beautiful lady reporter that has been trying to help his sister. It has been many years since the last time that he saw Sophie Alton and so many things have changed in both of their lives, its no small wonder that she doesn't recognize him.
Can Marc convince Sophie to believe him and help him find and save his sister and her child? Can Sophie look past the man he has become and the sins of his past? And will the passion that sparks between them be the very thing that could save them both or will it be the thing that destroys them all?
This is one book that is truly one thrill ride after another. It's not your average contemporary suspense. The story is both thought provoking, sexy as all heck, and touching beyond belief (I will admit it had me crying more than once and in a good way!) It's been a long time since a book touched me this deeply and actually made me take a look at some real issues that I'd never even considered before. Add to that many twists and turns that will have you guessing to the very end. And if you are like me and have enjoyed the others in the series you get to catch up with many of your favorite characters from the other books!
If you love a good story with heart, sex appeal, and suspense I cannot recommend this one highly enough. And while it is part of the I-team series it can stand-alone and it is well worth the time! Pamela Clare is a master at putting you in the story and in the eyes and hearts of her characters. Get this one you will be so glad you did!
When a young woman disappears, journalist Sophie Alton investigates and is led to the woman's brother, a convicted killer who is running from the law. Together, they follow a dangerous path toward the truth-and unforgettable passion.
