Rand Maguire prides himself on his outstanding security specialties. While working a high profile wedding, something goes horribly wrong and he knows he is in over his head, especially since the murder weapon is a drug called Rapture.
Dakota North knows all about the effects of the drug since she helped develop it. She also knows about Rand, since they have an explosive past that haunts her daily.
Putting aside their differences, Dakota and Rand race to find the culprit. They know that time is not on their side and if they cannot stop Rapture from being introduced to the world, the drug will very likely destroy most of mankind. Even as they fight against their unknown enemy, the passion that once connected them, resurfaces and has Dakota and Rand questioning events from their past. Will they be able to stop the person responsible for all the chaos Rapture has caused? When they find out what caused the break in their relationship two years ago, can they once again find the happiness with each other they once had, or is it too late?
Mystery, steamy sex, adventure, danger, suspense, and one thrill ride after another encompass the pages of Afterglow. The interaction between Dakota and Rand is a story in itself as I read the way they struggled to contain their passion for one another until it practically explodes onto the scene and overwhelmed my senses. Then you have the bad guy who continues to make mysterious appearances without giving enough clues for this reader to know exactly who it is. As the cat and mouse game continued throughout the book, I found myself on the edge of my seat more times than not as I watched the interaction between Dakota and Rand as well as the good guys versus the bad guys. Ms. Adair knows how to write a passionate and suspense-filled novel and I cannot wait to read the next book in the Lodestone series.
