When presidential hopeful Senator Grant Laurence's life is impacted by two murders, agent Karen Sweeney is called in to find out who is trying to ruin the Senator's life. She had not planned on falling for the charismatic politician, but that is what happens. However, the two will have to let their sizzling attraction take second place to the deadly situation that brought them together. A killer is out there, one with a very personal grudge against Grant, and Karen is his only hope of survival, not only for himself, but for his two little girls and their innocence. As the plot moves to its breathtaking conclusion, secrets and lies must be untangled, or two sweet children will die.
***** Once again, Rachel Lee proves why she is among the reigning queens of romantic suspense. In this novel, guaranteed to appeal to fans of such dramas as CSI, 24, etc., readers are taken on a roller coaster ride of tangled lives and murder.
From page one until the end, the action races along with high tension. Even men could enjoy this one, so intense is the drama. Grant is a truly outstanding hero, both ruthless and compassionate, with his first thought ever being his daughters' well being. Karen could be a precursor of Eve Dallas, a savy and capable woman who is never cowed by the danger in which she lives. Polictics and passion interweave so skillfully that you feel you are reading a true story. *****
