Heated Pursuit by April Hunt
Overview by Publisher:
Penny Kline didn’t come to Honduras on a pleasure trip. She’s here to rescue her kidnapped niece, the only family she’s got left. What she didn’t plan on was walking into a covert ops mission—or being wrapped up in the hard-muscled arms of Rafe Ortega. The cool-as-ice operative’s touch may get her all hot and bothered, but no man can have a hold on her heart until her niece is home where she belongs.
Even in the tropics, Alpha Security operative Rafe can take down the bad guys without breaking a sweat. Hostage extractions. Clandestine missions. Those are the things he’s been trained to handle. Relationships? Not so much. But one look at this strong, sexy redhead and he’s seized by a fierce urge to protect her at all costs. Now Penny and Rafe will have to up their game because they’re about to go into a master criminal’s lair without backup, and the danger—and passion—is about to explode . . .
I started reading this book when I went to bed last night and the next thing I knew, it was three in the morning and I had finished it! That is a clear sign that I enjoyed it and it was captivating!
The story involves Penny and Rafe. Penny is down in Honduras searching for her missing cousin. She stumbles into a group of operatives, including her male cousin who she hasn’t heard from in years. It turns out they are looking for the same drug lord who has her cousin captive. Rafe is part of the team that has been hunting him for months. Penny wants to be part of their team and thinks her training as a bounty hunter has prepared her for the role.
Rafe is immediately attracted to Penny. He battles the attraction due to the fact that Trey, her cousin, would kill him as well as the fact that he just doesn’t do relationships. With the attraction barely contained, they are heading to go undercover and posing as lovers.
The action is just as hot as the sex scenes in the book. Penny and Rafe set the pages on fire with their scorching passion. The dangerous jungle lair of the drug lord creates tension and anxious situations. It really heightened the plot and moved the relationship along between the two.
I found this to be an exciting book to read. While I was reading, I found myself enjoying the development of the characters. There was enough twists and turns that it kept me guessing what would happen next! A hot love story with tons of danger!
