After Jean-Claude Laroque, aka Le Diable, becomes the dictator of the African country of Ubasi, the CIA is worried. The private military company Force du Sable is hired to evaluate the situation, and Dr. Emily Carlin is sent to Ubasi to determine what will happen in the region if Jean-Claude is overthrown. From the moment their eyes meet, there's an instant connection, but subterfuge is a must. When Emily finds out what Jean-Claude's situation really is, will help arrive in time? With Seducing the Mercenary (4.5), part of her Shadow Soldiers series, Loreth Anne White sets in motion an intricate plot that's revealed layer by layer. Jean-Claude is a winner of a hero, and his complexity is painted in many shades. This is an enthralling story! --Sandra Garcia-Myers

About the Author
Loreth Anne White was born and raised in southern Africa, but now lives in Whistler, a ski resort in the moody British Columbian Coast Mountain range. It's a place of vast, wild and often dangerous mountains, larger-than-life characters, epic adventure, and romance -- the perfect place to escape reality.
It's no wonder it was here she was inspired to abandon a 16-year career as a reporter, features writer, and editor (under the name Loreth Beswetherick) to escape into a world of romantic fiction filled with dangerous men and adventurous women.
When she's not writing you will find her long-distance running, biking or skiing on the trails, and generally trying to avoid the bears - albeit not very successfully. She calls this work, because it's when the best ideas come.
