We kick the week off with Against All Odds. Irene Hannon's latest book has a stellar endorsement on the front cover. "I've finally found someone who writes romantic suspense better than I do." Dee Henderson.
I love Dee Henderson's O'Malley series - it's some of the best romantic suspense out there, so I honestly didn't know if Against All Odds could live up to that amazing billing. Instead of being disappointed, as I read I remembered all the things I love about romantic suspense. The tension of two characters who are caught in a ticking time bomb situation. The pull of attraction coupled with the reality that emotions are crazy because of the stress. The idea that there are heroes out there ready to do anything to save the girl. And that there are women strong enough to do what they can to protect themselves. Mix in a strong spiritual thread and strong writing, and you have a delightful read. I CAN'T wait to read the next book in this series!
ABOUT THE BOOK
For FBI Hostage Rescue Team member Evan Cooper and his partner, dignitary protection duty should have been a piece of cake. Unfortunately, Monica Callahan isn’t making it easy. Estranged from her diplomat father, who is involved in a sensitive hostage situation in the Middle East, she refuses to be intimidated by a related terrorist threat back in the States…until a chilling warning convinces her that the danger is very real—and escalating. As Coop and his partner do their best to keep her safe, David Callahan continues his work—triggering an abduction that puts his daughter’s life at risk. And with every second that ticks by, Coop knows that the odds of saving the only woman who has ever managed to breach the walls around his heart are dropping. Because terrorists aren’t known for their patience—or their mercy.
