Book Description

An idyllic Caribbean vacation turns deadly when hostages are taken at one of Mexico’s most popular Mayan ruins. The kidnappers believe the abduction will be a simple way to negotiate the release of a colleague from a Texas prison, but the stakes become much higher when they realize one of their hostages is the daughter of a powerful U.S. Senator and another, an ex-Army Ranger who has no intention of playing by the rules.

After a daring escape the Senator’s daughter, Jessica, and the ex-Ranger, Jack, must endure a terrifying manhunt and a desperate fight for survival. While trying to stay alive in the unforgiving jungle they forge a bond that will last a lifetime and find love neither wanted, but were unable to avoid.

3.0 out of 5 stars Marked in Mexico October 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the first book I've read from this author, and I have to say I really enjoyed the story for the most part. The plot was suspenseful and full of adventure. I thought the characters were well developed and the author really pulls at your emotions throughout the story. The budding romance between Jack and Jessica was frustratingly luke warm and a little disappointing but I thought this was a romance novel, so therefore that was my mistake. The story is really about escape, survival, and building friendships.

The only reason I'm giving this a 3-star rating is the author has a habit of switching point of view between characters at almost every other paragraph.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Action/Suspense Romance October 29, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Kim McMahill has created a very good action adventure with a (very) little romance at the end. If you want a lot of steamy sex, this may not be the book for you, but for those who like a cleaner romance, it is perfect. For those who just like action/adventure, it also fills the bill. The action is non-stop and realistic and keeps you jumping up until the very end.

It shows good character development on the main characters; the secondaries a little less so, and a few loose ends were wrapped up and resolved real fast. I suppose I'm a blood thirsty sort but I like to see a father who allowed his daughter to be abused, or a political father who was too busy making political hay out of his daughter's situation to be there for her rescue to have a few uncomfortable moments explaining/justifying it. There were a very few typos and editing issues, but the book is much better than most new offerings.

This was a very enjoyable book and I look forward to reading more from this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book!! January 22, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I usually have trouble finding books that do not bore me to death. That was not a problem with this one. The action begins early in the book and kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. I bought this in the romance section, however, there is very little romance in it. During their life-or-death adventure, together the hero and heroine do come to terms with past and present relationships. They also deal with their emotional struggles about how different their worlds are and whether it could work between them. There is a third person on the run with the H&H that became endearing to me. I found myself rooting for her survival as much as the H&H. Read it. You will not be disappointed.

I loved this book. It had me on the edge of my seat from beginning to end. Once I started reading I couldn't put it down. I fell in love with the characters and felt I was experiencing their adventure with them. The author did a great job with description.

This was a great book. It kept you turning the pages. The characters were well thought out. They came to life off the pages. You could feel the fight and struggles they had to endure. This book touch so many emotions: angry, laughing, crying, caring, loving and many more. Will check out other books by this
author. Great job Mrs. McMahill.

5.0 out of 5 stars Suspenseful December 9, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Loved this book. Jack is on vacation with his buddies at the same resort in Mexico as Jessica. While on an excursion several of the tourists are kidnapped. Jessica is terrified but comes to trust Jack's skills and instincts completely. They don't know who they can trust but find some helpful people along the way.

5.0 out of 5 stars So glad I read it November 16, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was worried at first that this might just be another book about boobs and sex. Even the first chapter had me a little worried I was going to be right. I was thrilled to find out it wasn't! There was actually depth to this book. A great story line with wonderful characters. But not cheesy like some 'cleaner' books can be. This was a good balance of a nice clean story. I wish I could find more books like it.

I just finished this one and must say I enjoyed it very much. Although there were a number of editing omissions and errors and the book was perhaps 20% too long, it was an interesting and exciting read. The author did a good job of building her characters, and the situations she put them in compelled you to keep reading to find out what was going to happen. Although this book had a romantic aspect to it, it was very low key and in the background for most of the story. There was nothing which really caught me off guard or surprised me and, as such, no real WOW moments--but all in all it was a good, quick read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but a little slow
This is a good suspense story, although a little light on the romance. Not really sure it qualifies as a romance. It was okay, but a little slow and unsatisfying.
