After discovering that his brother has been kidnapped in Central America, Eli Connors sets out to hire the baddest mercenary he can find. Imagine his surprise when he comes face to face with Ray Vareker, a petite yt lethal woman. Soon she is beating up the bad guys in a bar fight, and Eli knows he has found his man (or rather woman) for the job.
She reluctantly lets him go with her to Central America and after a little while, they succumb to the sexual tension for some sex in the jungle. After an exciting and harrowing escape, all return home. But Ray managed to bring a little something back from Central America when she discovers that she, the least maternal mammal on the face of the Earth is pregnant.
I thought that this was one of Lori Foster's best books. For one thing, it is a stand alone book, and does not have all those awkward paragraphs devoted to explaining relationships when characters from say the Winston books are re-introduced throughout the series. Also, the dialogue is fresh - not cliche-ridden like many of her books. And lets face it, Ray is one bad mama - a flawed heroine we can all admire.
For pure escapism, steamy romance, and an adrenaline rush, check this one out.
