Mountain climber and art expert Nell MacInnes meets Navy SEAL Dakota Smith in the Scottish Highlands when she is called in to rescue a group of marooned teen climbers. Dakota is on the scene to track Nell, who by virtue of being the daughter of a legendary art thief is suspected of working for someone with terrorist ties who has stolen a priceless preliminary sketch of the Mona Lisa that had been drawn by Leonardo da Vinci and marked on by Michelangelo. Back at her job as an art restorer in San Francisco, Nell is attacked by several men intent on kidnapping her. Dakota needs her to train him to scale a castle wall. Fast-paced action, vivid detail, a touch of the paranormal, and hot lovemaking will please readers of adventure romance, while fans of Skye’s Draycott Abbey and Code Name series will enjoy this clever union of the two. And, yes, Izzy Teague makes an appearance. --Diana Tixier Herald
