On a cross country trip Kelly Monroe is visiting her grandfather when she and her dog, Xena, connect with one of her grandfather’s employers, Eric “Rick” Latrobe and soon finds herself embroiled in a web of danger, mystery and intrigue.
As a member of the Phoenix agency Rick Latrobe is overseeing a huge shipment of arms and vehicles for a government contractor doing work in Iraq that has had its share of problems and his gut tells him that there is more on the horizon, when he meets Kelly and her unique dog he feels an instant connection to them both, but he has no idea they will both be instrumental in keeping him alive.
Although this is the third book in this series, I had no problem picking it up and getting right into the story or the characters. I loved Kelly’s spunk and the fact that she was smart and savvy and didn’t let anyone dismiss her talents or her connection with Xena. I like Rick and thought he was good for Kelly, but I didn’t feel as if I got to know him as well as I did Kelly. I think I would have liked a bit more background on him, but it was obvious he was well liked and well respected because when his integrity was called into question, everyone who really knew him had no doubts about him. Kelly and Rick connected immediately and Xena linked them in ways other people couldn’t understand or imagine. At times I felt like the relationship between them got lost in the story and I would have liked to see them have more time together when they weren’t in a crisis situation, but I can’t deny they had a remarkable connection.
I’ll admit I got a little weary of the espionage and suspense but probably because I figured out the “bad guy” early on in the story and was waiting for everyone else to catch on. Ms. Holt did a great job of masterminding the story; I just happen to be really good at figuring out these types of plots which is one reason I don’t read a lot of romantic suspense. I also had to suspend belief a bit about Xena‘s ability to send messages to both Kelly and Rick, but I did find this part of the story to be very entertaining.
Anyone who enjoys well thought out, well written romantic suspense with a strong heroine and a swoon worthy hero will want to add Desiree Holt’s Scent of Danger to your reading list.

Rick Latrobe is another of the partners of the mysterious Phoenix Agency. There has been some trouble with minor theft at the private security contractor's location he's been working with in Iraq. He knows that something is going on, that he's seen something that would give him the answers he needs but can't remember, however he's unable to figure it out. When he arrives at the airfield after coming back from his latest trip to Iraq, the last thing he expects to see is the most beautiful woman he's ever seen talking to one of their employees.
Kelly decided to visit her grandfather on her way back home after visiting with friends in Florida. Before heading back home, she stops by the airfield where he works to say goodbye. Traveling with her dog Xena makes it impossible to fly due to her size, and since they're getting such a late start, they'll have to camp overnight at a campground on the way. Xena, a Caucasian Ovcharka, and Kelly have a special bond, and are capable of communicating with one another by sensing what the other is thinking, by special hand signals, or through their dreams. The CO's are known to have psychic abilities, and only bond with one person, so her instant connection with Rick is completely unexpected.
When Rick is attacked leaving the airfield, even though they're miles away, Xena lets Kelly know that he's in danger. Reluctant because of how most people react to the psychic abilities they share, she's unsure weather to contact him or not. Still not sure about Xena's new protectivness towards Rick, or how he'll react to it, she decides that it's best for everyone if they just go home and forget that they ever met. Xena has other plans for them, especially with the extreme danger to Rick, and his current assignment. But will she be able to keep both Rick and Kelly safe until the men at Phoenix can figure out what's going on?
This was a fantastic story, and I loved how involved Xena was in everything. The chemistry between Rick and Kelly was sweet, sexy, and definitely hot. They made a great couple, and balanced one another perfectly. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.
I strongly recommend this book, series, and outstanding author.
I have voluntarily reviewed this arc provided by the publisher via NetGalley.
Rick never realised that Henry's granddaughter was quite so got and that she would have a dog the size of a small van! But he feels an instant pull to the redhead and manages to sweet talk her into a date. When the date becomes an overnight date, Rick realises that this is anything but a one shot deal for him. She may live in Maine but he'll find a way to make this work. He just an assignment in Iraq to finish first.
Kelly feels the same but before she knows it she is back on the road with Xena. But when Xena freaks out and then she learns that Rick was shot at and is in hospital, she realises that Xena knew something had happened to him. Kelly and Xena will have to use their psi bond, enhanced by the Lotus Circle, to keep Rick from further harm.
I'm loving this series of women with particular extra senses and the red hot alpa men who love them. I also now have a hankering for my own Xena!!! She is a star in her own right in this book.

I thought the author's use of the dog Xena as the catalyst of bringing Kelly and Rick together was unique. I loved their chemistry.Read more
