Memories of happier times are something Rachel Gannon represses at all costs, yet now they provide the perfect psychological block. With no family or friends to speak of, Rachel lives for her job, which means keeping her connection to Jamila a secret, no matter how much pain she must endure.
Hearing his name on her lips is both Heaven and Hell for Kadin Marks. His heart leaps out of his chest at the thought of being with Rachel again, whereas his head tells him he is no better a man now than ten years before.
Being rescued by Kadin is the last thing Rachel ever expects, yet here is the only man she has ever loved in the flesh. Still, she beats down those old feelings, knowing that getting Jamila to safety is more important than whatever her heart thinks it is feeling for Kadin. Kadin immediately recognizes the woman Rachel has become, and seeing those same haunted expressions in his own eyes makes him want her all the more. All of the past pain, regret and desire roars within his heart for her, although he is not certain he is any more worthy now.
The ubiquitous black ops and undercover agents notwithstanding, this is still a great read. On her own, Rachel is a pretty sad case of self-flagellation and near fatalistic determination, but pair her up with Kadin, and a whole new personality emerges. Kadin’s unerring acceptance of anything Rachel needs or feels is the stable force that anchors them both throughout this story. Ms. Munroe builds the suspense and the passion until not only are her characters ready to combust, but her readers as well.
