About the Author
I earned my Ph.D. in microbiology and immunology and worked in several labs across the country before moving into the classroom. My day job as a college science professor gives me time to pursue my other love--writing fast-paced romantic suspense, with smart, nerdy heroines and dangerously attractive heroes. I love to hear from readers! Find me on the web, or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

I loved the rekindling of their relationship. They had been torn apart ten years earlier, but had never forgotten their feelings or what had driven them apart. Avery has held on to the hurt and anger all these years, while Grant eventually came to terms with his part in what happened. I ached for both of them as they were haunted by their memories. Once they got over the shock of seeing each other again, there was no denying that the attraction between them was as strong as ever. I loved how, with the added maturity of ten years, they were able to talk to each other about what had happened, and clear the air between them. I liked the advice that Avery got from her friend Mallory, helping her to move forward. Then Avery is stricken by the disease. I absolutely loved the vividness of the description of what was happening to her, of her feelings and what was keeping her anchored. The depth of Grant's feelings for her was beautifully portrayed. The sharing of their feelings afterward was so emotional I couldn't wait to see how they would make their relationship work. I loved the ending and seeing how they managed it.
The suspense of the story was fantastic. The fact that part of it was based on a real event, and with the state of today's world, the sense of realism in the book made it even more gripping. With their step by step efforts to pinpoint the source of the disease, and the occasional viewpoint of those behind it, their fears of the possibilities was obvious. The tension increased as the number of cases grew, and they were running out of time to stop it. The final confrontation was intense as I wondered just how it was going to turn out. There was a twist at the end that I hadn't expected.
I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.
Overall I thought that this book was good. It had an interesting set of characters that I enjoyed getting to know. I also loved that I got the POV of the the guy who created and spread the virus as well as the reasons she does so. I loved seeing how strained things where and how it was resolved between Avery and Grant. I loved seeing the suspense of wondering when and if something would happen to the main characters, and wondering if the illness would potentially mutate into something more dangerous. There was plenty of factors to question when it came to this kind of thing and I just thought it was interesting to read. I also loved seeing that romance rekindled between the two main characters because let's be honest a lot of books from this publisher have romance so you kinda gotta expect that sort of thing and I loved seeing that bit of romance in the book. Overall this book was really good, fast paced, unique and I really loved it.
Dr. Grant Jones isn't expecting an epidemic to break out on the base that he's in charge of in Antarctica, and when it does, the last person he thinks will walk through the door as the head CDC investigator is his former college sweetheart the he has never gotten over. He expected to spend the rest of his life with her, but circumstances and youthful mistakes split them up.
Center for Disease Control investigator, Dr. Avery Thatcher has no clue she's walking into Grant's base hospital when she is sent to investigate a suspicious outbreak. She isn't happy to see him and have the memories of how badly he let her down all those years ago flashing through her mind again.
The time together lets them have the time they need to discuss each of their feelings over the past, and make peace with each other, but will they be able to put a stop to the release of this disease before they are all taken down by it?
