Charlotte Court goes on the run after being set up for her father’s murder. While in hiding in a picturesque town in Mexico, Charlotte meets former Navy SEAL, Matt Sanders who is recuperating from his own trauma. The two grow closer as the threats from Charlotte’s past loom nearer and nearer.

Charlotte is an intelligent and resourceful heroine and Matt is a scarred and sexy SEAL. Their chemistry is excellent, and the development of their relationship is intense and often breathtaking. That said, Matt can be quite overbearing, and the actual consummation of his and Charlotte’s sexual relationship is rather tepid.

Both the hero and the villain are built up as intense warriors and brilliant strategists, but the final confrontation between them is lackluster. Nevertheless, the bad guy’s demise is quite satisfactory, particularly due to the fact that it is Charlotte who gets the better of Barrett and blows him away.

The writing style is straightforward and minimalistic at times, but the pacing flows smoothly and keeps the reader engaged. There are two gruesome scenes that some readers might find disturbing. The first is completely unnecessary as it adds nothing to the developing storyline or to the main villain’s characterization while the second is central to the plot and doesn’t actually come close to similarly gritty scenes in books by Karen Rose or Karin Slaughter.

All in all, an entertaining read with a solid suspense tale and a truly touching romance. ( )

I am so glad I read this book. I had no idea that Lisa Marie Rice also wrote under the name Elizabeth Jennings. I love her erotic novels and am thrilled that I can now satisfy myself while waiting for her latest offering by reading all the Elizabeth Jennings books I've missed.

Charlotte is in trouble, wounded, and on the run. Her old sheltered and cosseted life just a memory now. She's concentrating all her energies on surviving and certainly doesn't have time for a man.

Matt is rebuilding his own life. His was torn apart just like his body during his last mission in Afghanistan. He's reached his lowest ebb and just when he thinks there's nothing left to live for...he sees her. His Angel. He doesn't know her name, who she is, what she does. But he does know she's survived something terrible. When he finds out how terrible, there's nothing he won't do to help her and avenge her.

What a pair. What a story. Whatever name she writes under, Jennings/Rice can yank you into the world of her characters with ease. It's not until the book is done and the story told, and then you surface back into the real world with your heart thumping. Absolutely fabulous. ( )
