Just days before the running of the biggest thoroughbred horse race in the world, an act of bio-terrorism kills Kentucky’s lieutenant governor, and former FBI Special Agent Brooke Fairfax receives a video of the murder from her long-time anonymous source. When Brooke discovers domestic terrorists are actually after the governor—her late husband’s brother—and that the radicals are eyeing more targets, she heads to Kentucky to stop the threat. Shortly after the political assassination, the FBI zeroes in on one person: international mogul Declan O’Roark. Though Brooke has been out of the game since her husband was murdered, her former boss thinks she is the perfect candidate to connect Declan to the crime. Despite the FBI clearly establishing means and opportunity, Declan remains unfazed; his motives have nothing to do with murder, but with getting closer to Brooke Fairfax. And Brooke finds the case becoming even more unclear as she falls for the FBI’s number one suspect.
First off, GORGEOUS cover! The cover and description of this book is what drew me in. I began reading this book immediately and was swept into a fast whirlwind. This being my first book by Heather, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I have to say that her writing skills blew me away! Heather writes with such grace and fluidity, that you can’t stop reading. This book is action packed and page gripping. Heather certainly knows how to entertain and bring forth a very descriptive picture. I loved the characters she wrote for this novel. Brooke is so strong and my heart just ached for her, for what all she had to overcome emotionally stepping back into being an agent. She is a tough as nails character, confident and brilliant! I particularly loved Declan! He just seems so genuine and to really care for Brooke.While this book does contain some adult material, it is kept very clean and for that reason i liked it. This book at the en shook me to my core and am now left waiting for book two. (Like i need this now Heather, so please start writing quickly) This book is full of action, romance and non stop heart pounding, page turning scenes. 5 stars from me! I received this book in exchange for my honest review.
