On a secret assignment for MI-5, British SAS soldier Trevor Carswell is deep undercover with The Philosophy of Bedlam, a home-grown anarchist group responsible for several museum bombings. He’s on the brink of unearthing their motives when Scotland Yard foils their latest attack. Desperate to escape, the Bedlamites take civilian hostages — among them, a woman Trevor never expected to see again.
American political analyst Shelby Gibson is stunned when she recognizes Trevor, her one-time lover, brandishing a shotgun in the lobby of the August Museum of Modern Art. He’s the last man she’d ever trust, but Trevor is no criminal, and he may be her only hope of getting out of the building alive.
With the woman he once loved in serious danger, Trevor will risk everything to get Shelby to safety, even if it means blowing his cover. As they search for the truth behind the bombings, Shelby and Trevor expose the powerful, desperate man pulling the anarchists’ strings… and the half-century-old secret he’ll kill to keep quiet.
Trevor is an undercover SAS agent and Shelby is a political analyst. Trevor’s assignment is to infiltrate a group responsible for a rash of museum bombings. During one of the museum bombings, hostages are taken. This is where Trevor and Shelby reconnect and this book takes off and never lets go!
Shelby is a wonderful female character. I love strong female leads and the author did a fabulous job making her human. She is spontaneous and does not always think about the outcome of her actions….exactly like me!!
She and Trevor have some heated exchanges, on and off the bed! This is basically because their chemistry is SOOOO magnetic. And to say Trevor is hot is an understatement!
This book took off like a rocket and I was hooked. Between the chemistry, the quirky friends and the chase, it was difficult to put it down for a second!
This is Book 3 in the Duty and Honor series. I have not read the first two of this series and I did not even relize I was reading the third book until I was writing the blog post. Now I have another series I am behind on! I must get busy!!
I received this novel from the publisher for an honest review.
Though this is not a book I would normally choose, you’ve written a compelling review. I may just have to add it to the TR.
It’s a good read!! Thanks dear!
