One year ago, David Church kissed a beautiful, brilliant woman on an airfield in Iraq—and hasn't stopped thinking about her ever since. Now, the military veteran gets a chance to rekindle that fire when he sees his lost love again—looking sexier than ever—at an international conference in Athens. David yearns to take her in his arms, to hold her close and never let go. But when the bullets begin to fly, it's not just his heart on the line. It's his life.
When Molly Solent agreed to deliver intelligence for the U.S. government, she didn't realize she'd be caught in the crossfire of a surprise ambush—and underneath the hard-muscled body of David Church. Shielding her from harm and swearing to protect her, the elite bodyguard reignites a searing passion that Molly can't resist. But with unforeseen danger around every corner—and unquenchable desire in every embrace—falling in love could be the greatest risk of all…

He pulled his hand away, and she moaned, opening her eyes. He gazed at her for a second, and pulled her upright and put his hands on her shoulders. “You deserve all the promises in the world. I’m just not there yet. I’m—”
She laid her fingers against his lips. “Shhh. I’m not asking for any promises. I’m not asking for tomorrow. I’m not making that mistake again. I’m not asking for your soul, either.” She frowned. “I just want now. This second. I just want you.”
He held her gaze for a couple of seconds, as if measuring her sincerity. And then he dropped his head. “I don’t des—”
“Don’t say that. You might get to choose what you deserve. But I do too. I deserve this.” She wanted to stamp her foot. “I deserve you. I waited so long. Thought about you for so long. Said ‘no’ to so many dates. You ruined this past year for me. So the way I see it, you owe me now.”
He raised his head with the beginnings of a smile playing around the corners of his mouth. “I owe you, huh?” He narrowed his eyes and walked her backward until her calves hit the bed.
“Yes you do,” she replied in a whisper. “And I intend on collecting.”
Molly Solent is not having a good start to her business trip. David Church is there at the right time to help Molly sort out the life that just got totally crazy. In order for the story to seem more real, the author sneaks in some current events into her story. She also adds in some international intrigue that will hold the reader’s attention.
Molly and David have met previously so if you haven’t followed the series you may want to go back and read the other books - especially if you want to know more about the characters. But I don’t feel that you need to have read those books in order to enjoy this most recent story. The author takes her adventure to the streets of Athens. It reminds me how I’ve always wanted to go to Greece – but not sure I’d like the same type of adventure that Molly had.
If you are someone that likes a romantic suspense story with characters that are military then you will want to make sure to add this book to your TBR list. In order for this book to sound so realistic, the author must have done a lot of research or has a great imagination. But this is also what makes the book so enjoyable. You have to keep reading in order to find out if the mystery gets solved. There’s also plenty of action that you don’t realize how quickly the pages are going by. And of course there’s some romance in there that ties the two characters together. It also turns up the heat level – one might say combustible. One more reason to find out what happens between Molly and David.
