Reviewed for Read Your Writes Book Reviews
by Gemini

This is the second book in the series and it is a fitting conclusion to our look into the complicated relationship between Alex Peters and Katie McCloud. That being said, it’s imperative that you read the first book before you read this one as you will not truly understand how everything progressed. There is a lot that happens and plenty of things get resolved or at least addressed that were significant issues from the first book. In fact, so much happens that I can’t really get into much details without giving away all of the great things about this book.

Alex and Katie are a very mismatched couple that somehow complement each other very well. He is a reluctant CIA agent with Mommy and Daddy issues. She is a grounded, kindergarten teacher with a loving family where all of the males are in law enforcement or the military. Katie is still showing Alex what it means to love someone and Alex is still trying to show Katie that there is plenty of evil in the world. Katie finally witnesses the extent of this evil when she insists on accompanying Alex on a Doctors Unlimited assignment to Cuba. Consequently, they spend a large amount of time running for their lives and they don’t know who to trust.

Hot Intent was just as exciting as the first book, Close Pursuit, and it would be great if the author opted to add a third book although it was probably a fitting conclusion. The suspense was heart pounding as Alex tried to figure out if there was a mole in the CIA or if there is something else going on entirely. Either way, someone is way ahead of them and at some point they go on the offensive. It’s great to see Alex embrace the spy that his father has been training him to be his entire life.

Hot Intent
Cindy Dees
Harlequin HQN, Jul 29 2014, $7.99
ISBN: 9780373778898

Kindergarten teacher Katie McCloud joined Doctors Unlimited as a translator in war torn Zaghastan where she assisted Dr. Alex Peters with providing medical help to pregnant women. When danger arrived, Alex deployed skills no geek possesses and managed to get them back to the States along with newborn Dawn whom Katie delivered and carried home with her; though America’s illusion of haven proved false (see Close Pursuit).

While Alex was away for a year in training, his CIA handler Andre Fortinay warned Katie to have no expectations with her lover. When Alex finally arrives at their DC home, Katie welcomes him back as her hero. Soon afterward, Katie and Alex travel to Cuba to help hurricane victims. However, his espionage past catches up to the two lovers. When the CIA orders him to dump the woman he loves, Alex must choose between his heart which shouts he belongs with Katie and Dawn; and his training and tortured past which insist eliminate mission threats especially vulnerabilities like Katie and Dawn.

The latest Doctors Unlimited romantic suspense is a thrilling sequel starring a haunted hero who seems capable of doing anything except love, and a spunky female who refuses to quit on her anguished man. Although lacking the unique profoundness of a war torn Zaghastan village (see Close Pursuit), the depth into Alex’s abnormal mental state filled with rage hooks the audience. Readers wonder throughout whether Alex will allow his two beloveds to become expendable pawns; as the pressure from the CIA and his paternal Russian family amplifies with each side agreeing on one thing in the international game of deadly intrigue: dump the female albatrosses.

I have to say upfront that this book is a continuation of a story begun in another book, and they must be read in order. I can't say enough about how strong this story is, and how fast paced and intriguing. There are many twists and turns that are in no way telegraphed. The settings are beautifully detailed. The passion factor is off the charts and the action is pretty non stop. I commend Cindy Dees on her ability to balance passion/romance/intrigue and action. I'm on board for the next one!

Loved the suspense. This is what I like about Dees. And I enjoyed this book a bit more than Close Pursuit. The "doctor" spin is new for Dees, I can tell, as I kept waiting for reference to the Hippocratic oath and the angst Alex must have felt. That aside I am still a huge Dees fan.
