She Needs a Hero...

Abby Thompson didn’t sign up to be the daughter of the President of the United States. The position was forced on her by the small matter of her birth. Preferring a quiet life of study, she’s content to leave the politics and the international intrigue to her father. Unfortunately, the most powerful man on the planet is sure to make enemies. When a group of armed thugs takes her hostage half a world away, demanding the U.S. government release prisoners in exchange for her safe return, she fears her father’s policy of “not negotiating with terrorists” means she’ll never see the shores of the Potomac again. Luckily, there’s one glimmer of hope. His name is Carlos Soto. And though she abruptly ended things with him years ago, she knows now he’s the only man who can save her…

Black Knights, Inc. to the Rescue... 

Carlos “Steady” Soto has taken part in his fair share of dangerous missions working at the covert government defense firm of Black Knights Inc. But nothing prepared him for the emotional rollercoaster he faces when he’s tasked with rescuing the only woman he ever loved—who also broke his heart. Racing against time and outmaneuvering a group of trained terrorists will take everything he’s got. Plus there’s the heat simmering between them which is threatening to ignite into an inferno. While ruthless enemies stalk them, they must learn to trust each other again. Even if they do make it out alive, will Abby turn her back on him…for the second time?
“What are you smiling about?” Abby asked, dragging Carols from his thoughts. Then her gaze pinged down to the fly of his cargo pants, where he was still semi--erect. “Never mind.” She rolled her eyes. “Of course that’s what’s behind that goofy grin. What else would it be?”

It was so good to hear her sling a gibe that he refrained from reaching over to throw an arm around her shoulders and smack a kiss on her soft, wonderful lips. Instead, he decided to play along. “And what’s that supposed to mean?” he asked, narrowing his eyes in mock warning.

“That as a gender, your minds, when not occupied with the task of making war somewhere, are usually either filled with thoughts of sex, beer, or the latest baseball scores.”

“That’s not true,” he informed her, lifting his nose haughtily.

“It’s not?” she asked.

“No. Most times we’re thinking about all three at once.”

Snorting, she nudged him with her elbow. He, of course, nudged her right back.

“Stop it,” she told him, feigning a frown.

“You stop it,” he retorted. And now the grin he wore had nothing to do with thoughts of sex. Instead, his mind was filled with love.

“Gah!” She shook her head, mistaking his expression. “And there’s that grin again.”

“Don’t act like you don’t like it.” He wiggled his eyebrows at her, slowly giving her a wink. “Because I know for a fact that you do.”

“And why would you possibly be suffering under that delusion?”

“Because Rosa told me you once told her that my smile was the sweetest you’d ever seen. And that my dimple should be outlawed.” And you had better believe that had stayed with him through the years. There’d been times when he thought he wouldn’t make it out of this battle or live through that mission that he closed his eyes and relived the memory of the day his sister fed him that delicious little nugget, imagining Abby’s adorable face as she confessed.

  1. Can't wait for the latest in the series.! I love that their romantic and suspenseful. ;) Seriously though I like a mystery to keep my mind working. And I like strong characters which these generally tend to be.
