Danielle Bordeaux was used to danger. As a doctor with the Center for Disease Control she thrived on the adventure and challenge of battling the world’s worst diseases, in the world’s worst places. When Ebola breaks out in a small village in Ghana, she and her team are prepared for the worst. But what she finds is a virus made even more deadly by human hands. And when rebels attack the camp, rescue comes from the last man she ever expected to see again. It hurts every time she looks at him, but also brings a sweet torture that she’s not sure she can deny.
Damon Dupree is an ex-Marine for hire. A former sniper and an ace helicopter pilot, he goes where the money and excitement take him. The government has him playing babysitter to a genius inventor, bent on finding a cure for Ebola—but a frantic call has him racing to save the one woman from his past that he can’t touch—and can’t forget. With a killer bent on infecting anyone close with a mutated virus, can he save the only woman who’s ever meant anything to him—before they lose everything?
When the suspense comes in the form of a deadly, man made virus, and you have no idea who in your own team is behind it, no idea who you can trust, the fear, the tension, the pressure is palpable and immense. The psychological tension that came from that fear was intense and well build. The story in whole flew very nicely, and the book was hard to put down.
I love Dani and Damon together, the energy, attraction, draw is real and noticeable. It's like the allure between them is so strong, they have a special connection to each other. Maybe it's their guardian angel, Damon's twin and Dani's former husband. I didn't find the connection with Dani and Damon odd at all, because of Damon being Dani's husband's twin. It had been eight years since Gabriel passed, that was more than time enough. They respected and honored his memory, and that was pleasing to me.
The love between them is strong, hot, filled with passion, understanding, and tenderness. There's just something so adorable about these two, it melted my heart, and they set the pages on fire!
And as a lovely surprise, there was a little update on their friends, the cast from the former books in the series.
Sharp, vivid, intense action and suspense, mixed with swoon worthy romance, a captivating love story, twists in the plot that you don't expect, and humor that makes you smile in the most tense moments
