CIA agent Daniel Adams, once a prisoner of war, is a loner out of necessity. But rescuing an amnesiac woman left buried alive bonds them in ways neither can resist. All Raven knows is that her baby is in danger. All Daniel can focus on is finding the missing child and protecting Raven every step of the way.
Her memories are lost and his are scarred from the damages of war. But as they depend on each other for survival in the rugged west Texas mountains, the pieces of their broken pasts start to come together. Now all they have is the risky hope of a future together as they confront the threat that can destroy them both.
What a powerful story this is. It touched me with all the emotions; made me smile, sigh, tear up, and heart raise from the intense fear and anxiety.
Daniel is so scared inside. The PTSD symptoms are well described, with such a vivid images. But he is truly a good man, with a loving, caring heart.
His connection with Raven was so delicate and tender. Their trust to each other is strong, the way they calm each others mind is just beautiful.
The hunt for Raven's memories, for the people trying to kill her, for the baby -- it is fierce and frightful.
Such an original plot, with intense suspense, evil villains, deep emotions, lovable main characters ~ Five spoons!
