Winters Heat by Cristin Harber
After putting her life on the line to protect classified intelligence, military psychologist Mia Kensington is on a cross-country road trip from hell with an intrusive save-the-day hero. Uninterested in his white knight act, she’d rather take her chances without the ruggedly handsome, cold-blooded operative who boasts an alpha complex and too many guns.
AND THE MAN SENT TO STOP HER
Colby Winters, an elite member of The Titan Group, has a single objective on his black ops mission: recover a document important to national security. It was supposed to be an easy in-and-out operation. But now, by any means necessary becomes a survival mantra when he faces off with a stunning woman he can’t leave behind.
MUST PARTNER TO SURVIVE
When Titan’s safe houses are compromised, Colby stashes Mia at his home, exposing his secret—he’s the adoptive father of an orphaned baby girl. Too soon, danger arrives and Mia lands in the hands of a sadistic cartel king with a taste for torture. As hours bleed into fear-drenched days, Colby races across the globe and through a firestorm of bullets to save the woman he can’t live without
I instantly fell in love with the author's voice, her way to tell the story. It is fun, energetic, and entertaining.
I also love Colby, true alpha male warrior, and then he melts when talking about his daughter - completely swoon worthy. But Colby was also a man with 'tender heart, and caring soul'. Mia has a lot of walls protecting her, and the way the author wrote about her, you could actually feel the walls, the need to keep protecting herself, trying not to get hurt. Yes, she sometimes noticed even herself, that she was being bitchy, but she was in constant danger with her life, while fast falling in love with the knight who came to her rescue, time and again. But even in these dangerous situations, she was fighting back as well as she could, and being strong. In my opinion the author showed so well, and clearly, where Mia came from, what was behind her behavior.
It was easy for me to like both of the charismatic main characters, as well as the cast of the others in Titan team.
The romance, attraction was instant, but believable, since more of the lust type at first. The scenes gets pretty steamy, but they fit into the story well, telling the tale of their developing relationship and feelings for each other.
The villain was creepy, and his soldiers so well described, they made my skin crawl.
There's a lot of action, hand-to-hand combat, explosive thrill, and tension. The suspense is well written, and made my heart race at times.
This was my first book by the author, and I'm glad I found her work, since I truly enjoyed this story! And this first installment of the series, that I'm sure to follow, is free at Amazon. Four big spoons with a little tea spoon onfor this book one for Titan series.
