As always, Lynn Raye Harris has created a thorough, suspenseful and exciting story. She uses harrowing adventures and charismatic characters to pull the reader immediately into the plot and keep them invested. Jared Fraser is an operative for the clandestine BDI (Black Defense International). BDI is a private security agency that provides security and protection for those on the side of right, at least they appear to do so. Jared is a handsome, book worm loner, but also a fierce warrior. On his way to a reclusive mountain retreat, after a disturbing mission he finds a lost, injured woman. His protective instincts draw him into helping her, trying to find how she was hurt, why she's lost and what he's to do with her. Liberty King is cute, damaged, bubbly and says she doesn't remember anything about herself. The story progresses through Liberty's recovery and James's transformation, while trying to uncover why Liberty is in serious peril. Using BDI's resources they find corporate fraud, kidnapping, attempted and actual murder. Mystery and violence is counterpoint to loyalty and trust, bringing our two protagonists together despite their differences and because of their love.
