During a vacation in the Caribbean, fifteen-year old Kate Huntley’s father, a prominent U.S. scientist, is murdered before her eyes. For the next ten years Kate grows up alone in Haiti, one of the most dangerous and poorest countries in the Western Hemisphere. Not a day goes by that she doesn’t think of her father. Kate pushes herself to become stronger, mentally and physically. Every day is a struggle for survival. And yet she lives for only one reason…revenge.
While looking for a drug lord via satellite in Port-au-Prince, Haiti’s capital, Jack Coffey, rookie FBI agent, spots Kate Huntley. Jack is sent by the agency to find Ms. Huntley and bring her back to the States. They have many unanswered questions about her father’s death. A professional and responsible man, Jack is confused by Kate’s lack of cooperation. He wants to help her return to the States where he believes she’ll be safe, but she treats him like the enemy and refuses to go. Everything about her is a contradiction. She looks fragile and innocent, but every time he turns around she’s putting another thug in his place. In the beginning Jack wonders if Kate’s distrust of his superiors is warranted or just simple paranoia. In the end, Jack realizes nothing is as it seems. ng Kate Hun

I’m a paranormal nut but once in a while I enjoy a good thriller, and this novel didn’t disappoint. From the moment I met FBI Agent Jack Coffey I was in love! He was smug, even a tad arrogant but in that boyish way which makes girls melt!Kate was sassy and hard, almost to the core making their relationship bumpy from the beginning.
The suspense was great. I had my own ideas about what was going to happen and although I correctly predicted one event most of the time I was just blown away. Twists and turns were in every chapter!
Throughout the novel the sexual tension could be cut with a knife. As the reader I couldn’t help but yell at these two telling them to get together. Just when that magic moment seemed to come up would get in the way. If it was agony on the characters it was complete torture for me! Thankfully they do get together for some steamy sex scenes … problem is are they able to stay together in the end?
