WHO’S PROTECTING WHO?
Eli Conners expected hired mercenary Ray Vereker to be a tank of a guy with forty tattoos—not the feminine ideal with lethal combat skills. While Eli certainly needs Ray’s help, the rest of him is thinking he might have something to offer her . . .
Ray’s as good as any man when it comes to storming enemy compounds and loading an AK-47, but who could blame a girl for succumbing to mind-blowing temptation in the steamy jungle? But now it’s back to business. If only Ray wasn’t feeling hot, bothered, dizzy . . .
Suddenly, Ray’s precise, no-nonsense mission is veering wildly off course, derailed by raging hormones, out-of-control desire, and a delirious love that is completely unexpected . . .
“Filled with Foster’s trademark wit, humor, and sensuality.”
“Foster’s pages sizzle.”

Same with her main heroine; she has gumption, guts, speaks her mind (for a change from other's books), strong sence of self, she has morals, knows what she stands for, has generousity of spirit... and good sence of humor. Even when she is in turmoil, she has strength to face her challenges and do some self-analysis. She does not whimper and whine, like most author's heroines who cry at a drop of the hat. I love LF's books, because you cannot help but truly admire the characters she paints, they are genuine and real-life likable, like a great neighbor who you want to get to know as a new friend.
Now that a few years have passed since first copywrite, Jeremy & Matt have grown-up; are there their stories to come? I hope so.
Thank you, Lori. I only wish for more books on MP3 format to listen to while in traffic...
She reluctantly lets him go with her to Central America and after a little while, they succumb to the sexual tension for some sex in the jungle. After an exciting and harrowing escape, all return home. But Ray managed to bring a little something back from Central America when she discovers that she, the least maternal mammal on the face of the Earth is pregnant.
I thought that this was one of Lori Foster's best books. For one thing, it is a stand alone book, and does not have all those awkward paragraphs devoted to explaining relationships when characters from say the Winston books are re-introduced throughout the series. Also, the dialogue is fresh - not cliche-ridden like many of her books. And lets face it, Ray is one bad mama - a flawed heroine we can all admire.
For pure escapism, steamy romance, and an adrenaline rush, check this one out.
On page 253, Ray is afraid that she won't be a good mother. Eli says to her "You know honesty and honor, pride, integrity, and the value of hard work. You, Ray Vereker, are going to be an excellent mother."
On page 289, Eli is trying to convince Ray to marry him. He says "I want to take care of you. And, I want you to take care of me." This line was a nice reminder to me that both husband and wife should want to take care of each other.
Sexual language: strong. Number of sex scenes: five. Setting: present day Central America, Chicago and a ranch in the U.S. Copyright: 2003. Genre: romantic action/suspense.

In my opinion, this is one of Lori's best, , it is a stand alone book, Ray is one bad mama - a flawed heroine we can all admire.
