Ms. Stuart delivers fast-paced, action adventure romantic fiction. I stumbled on one of her books by accident during a period when I was working on discovering new authors and haven’t looked back since. Not only did I go back and read her entire back list but have kept up with all her new releases since. Sophie Jordan is an incredible heroine, and difficult as I found certain parts of the book, I could not put it down once I started.
Malcolm Gunnison is an agent for the Committee. His assignment is to neutralize the biological weapon Archer MacDonald is building and kill him. His secondary assignment is to neutralize former Committee agent and currently Archer’s wife Sophie, who turned her back on the Committee when she abandoned her assignment to marry Archer. The last thing this very disillusioned agent expects to find is love when he’s on this assignment.
The blinkers have definitely fallen off Sophie’s eyes. Crippled from a bullet in her spine when she discovers the depths of her husband’s betrayal, she’s now slowly but surely working herself back to health in order to get her revenge. Her acting is superb and she even has Malcolm fooled a time or two. As the three characters all work their various angles, the story takes some spine-tingling twists and turns. Sophie and Malcolm are unable to resist their mutual attraction for each other. Poor Sophie fears that she’s been wrong before, will she repeat her mistakes?
Another winner for Ms. Stuart.
Her power-hungry husband takes pleasure in her pain, but she’s done playing the victim.
Three years ago, ex-operative Sophie Jordan made the mistake of falling in love—and marrying—her target. Now she’s paying for it tenfold. Her husband might be one of the sexiest men alive, but he’s also a psychopath. She’s been a virtual prisoner, and the time has come for retribution—and escape.
Undercover agent Malcolm Gunnison has his orders: get intel from Sophie’s arms-dealer husband, then kill him. He plans to get rid of her, too, if she gets in his way, but he’s unprepared when she gets under his skin instead. Whose side is she on? And what is she hiding behind those mesmerizing eyes?
Sophie vowed to never fall for another man again, but this sexy undercover agent is different. With danger mounting, can Malcolm and Sophie trust each other—and their growing passion—enough to get out of this operation alive?
