Honor Stone is a young, idealistic FBI agent when her path collides with Seth Cavanaugh. For a girl who has never walked on the wild side, the dark and dangerous Seth is a temptation she can't refuse. But then Seth walks out the door and out of her life.

Five years later, Honor is an operative with the elite Last Chance Rescue organization, and Seth is a desperate ex-cop searching for his missing niece—one of many young women who have mysteriously vanished from college campuses. Going undercover, Honor will attract the maniacal cult leader behind the kidnappings and find a way to work with Seth—while steering clear of the passion and need that's just one touch away from explosion.

Seth knows he had all the right reasons for the wrong he did five years ago. And from the moment he sees her—and takes her in his arms again—this former undercover man will risk everything for one more chance with Honor.

Former Houston Detective Seth Cavanaugh has to suddenly and brutally sever his relationship with FBI Agent Honor Stone in order to protect her. Now it’s five years later and she’s an LCR operative and he needs their help in finding his niece who’s disappeared. They’re thrown together for the mission and both are struggling with their unresolved feelings.

 

I loved these two characters and how they dealt with each other when they were forced to reconnect. Theirs was a mature relationship and neither shied away from being honest and forthright about their feelings…no silly, drawn out drama…just two people struggling to cope and communicate while on the job.

 

The case was unusual in that it focused on a delusional and dangerous cult leader, unknown to anyone. Finding the connections was problematic and the realities inside the commune were hideous. The ending was exciting, as always, and Honor was particularly impressive. I loved the romance and the suspense surrounding this investigation. Everything worked!

About Christy Reece

Growing up in a tiny Alabama community boasting only one stop sign and a gas station gave Christy ample opportunity to create daring adventures in her head. When she wasn’t thinking of her story characters, Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys kept her entertained and out of trouble. Later came the chills of Stephen King and the thrills of John Grisham, but the romance genre always held a strong place in her heart. After years of talking to the characters in her head, she finally decided to write the stories they had been telling her. Now, she and her characters couldn’t be happier.

Christy lives in Alabama with her husband, five incredibly cute but precocious canines, and one very shy turtle.

I LOVE reading and am just crazy about so many series and writers. I’m open to exploring new authors and genres and appreciate those who not only write well but can deliciously craft a character and a tale. Your suggestions for new authors and titles are very much welcomed.

I also love to talk about books. There’s nothing more exciting than to finish a great story and cover it A to Z with other people, exploring different perspectives and points of view. So, if you see something on my shelf you’d like to talk about, send me a message and we’ll talk!
