Directly after Carrie Granger arrived in the third-world country that she traveled to in order to help set up a dialysis program, she disappeared without a trace. Her childhood friend and high school sweetheart, Wyatt Savage (from Gerard's Risk No Secrets) is worried sick. He calls his buddy David Cavanaugh, CAV, to find her--quickly! And find her he does--as a slave laborer in the mountains surrounded by thick jungles under the guard of brutal captors who are mining rubies.
CAV pulls every string he's got to infiltrate the mining camp as a greedy American investor, but can he pull-off this op alone? More importantly, can he get around his own demons of alcoholism to return Carrie home safely? Oh yeah, and one more thing--he falls in love with her--isn't it all complicated enough?
Cindy Gerard knows how to write a romance filled with nail-biting suspense. I loved every moment of delicious trepidation that Gerard so masterfully weaved into this story. I loved her Black Ops series and was delighted when she revisited it to provide this wonderful novella. Thank you Ms. Gerard!
I found it astonishing that the author could "squeeze" such a complete romance in so little space. The book included everything necessary to make a novel attractive: a good plot, an interesting male hero and a female main character who was of the same value. A nearly epic description of the circumstances in the labor camp and of course hot and steaming sex scenes. However, I wished that the end would have been a bit more elaborated. I know it was a novella...... but just a bit more towards the end would have been much more rewarding.
In any case, an absolute must.
Gerard is an author that can make just about any situation suspenseful, but this novella fell short in keeping my interest. It is worth reading, but it is not up to CG' s usual standards, or what I have become used to after reading her other books.
You will not miss much if you skip this book. Her others out-shine this one completely.
David Cavanaugh was part of the story in Whisper No Lies, and Carrie was Wyatt Savage's childhood friend in Risk No Secrets.
Now Carrie is in world of trouble, and Wyatt sends Cav to rescue her.
While on the run for their lives, Cav and Carrie feel instant attraction, resulting in a passionate affair while trying to escape the villains.
The suspense in the story is action packed, the escape from the slave camp like a spy movie scene.
As for the characters, I was happy to visit with some of the Black Ops Inc. cast, even thought briefly.
I loved that the super-spy-alpha-hero Cav was not perfect, but had both physical and mental scars, that he was aware of, and wanted to work with. Carrie had escaped her Georgia-small-town-living to get over her lifelong hopes of future with Wyatt. Those aspects giving this novella a bit of a savory bite.
Cav and Carrie together were tense, wild, and lusciously sweet.
A lot of story was fit into this novella, but I still wished it would have been a bit longer, a bit more in depth.
