Taylor Kincaid is a jewel thief, the best in the business. She has been after the famous Blue Star diamonds for a short while now. The man who "acquired" them for his wife is supposed to currently have them at his terrorist compound in South Africa, within a special safe that could not be cracked. Taylor does not find the diamonds. By the time she is in the "uncrackable" safe they are gone. However, she takes everything else. She has no clue that she inadvertently pockets valuable disks filled with security codes.
Huntington "Hunt" St. John is a top T-FLAC operative. He and his team specialize in counter terrorism. They desperately need the disks Taylor stole from José Morales's safe. They also need her expertise. Morales is the head of "Mano del Dios". For many years he has prepared for a special event. One he believes God has chosen him for. Friday, October thirteenth, is D-day unless Hunt and his team can stop him. First they must capture Taylor, then "convince" her to help. Morales has a nuclear missile ready. In order for the team to reach it and deactivate it, they must live through seven levels of deadly traps. Without Taylor's cooperation, it is impossible. With it, the chances of success are still slim, but it is better than nothing. If they fail, millions will die.
***** There is not really much romance at all in this Romantic Suspense. The two main characters are attracted to each other, but by the end of the story I, as the reader, did not feel that they could possibly be in true love. Most of the novel is dedicated to capturing Taylor and convincing her to help. The author did an excellent job on that, as well as, on the seven levels. Fans of the games or movies in the "Tomb Raider" series will be enthralled! Highly recommended. *****
