Sophie Marie Leroux is a genius nuclear physicist who runs Silver Fire Research, a laboratory that has developed the technology that can be used as an infinite power source. It is also rumored that she has a blueprint to a device that can destroy an entire city. Certain factions want to see that research buried, and the only way to make it happen is to get rid of Sophie. But greed has brought out sinister forces that may just coerce her into building the most lethal weapon since the nuclear bomb.
Derek Lockwood has avoided commitment all his life. His past involvements in high-risk missions with the Army Special Forces and Artemis Guardian Services (AGS) are not exactly building blocks for meaningful relationships. Now an executive for a defense company, he finds himself attracted to his new business partner. An angel with a mind like Einstein—Sophie just may be the one woman who will have him forsake all others.
However, behind Sophie's brilliant mind lurks a dark past, and Derek will need all his intellectual and sensual expertise to break through her emotional minefield.
* Strong sexual content and language. Mild sexual deviances. Ages 18+.
Dirty Talker + Damsel in Distress = Great Read!
I’ve been reading aloud from all of Victoria Paige’s books to my husband, and they are double the fun this second time around! We read a chapter each evening, and it makes the exciting, suspenseful parts that much more torturous, stretching it out over days! I had a brief hospital stay toward the end of this one, and my second evening home, hubby looked at me and asked if I was ready to read aloud yet (I was), and looked so cute asking, because I think he wanted me reading just as much as he wants me well again. LOL!
I didn’t remember the full story, because it’s been a while since the first time I read it (I only remembered that I liked it a lot), so the story unfolded for me as though it was all new again. I did remember a few scattered details, like Derek’s dirty mouth and his manwhore past. I remembered so little about Sophie, so it was a real treat getting to know her all over again. We would totally be friends. I love her.
The suspense part of this romantic suspense is a thrill ride! Nothing at all was predictable and the surprises were frequent.
The romance part of this romantic suspense was steaming hot! Poor Sophie’s virginity had been taken in the worst way by a psychopath, and so was truly still a virgin when you consider healthy sexual relationships. I was so happy for her, as a good friend should be, that she paired off with the prurient Derek.
I have to chuckle at one of the company names in this book: Divergent. With a teen and tween in the house who also love books, that word has an entirely different meaning for us now. 😉 Plus, my step-dad’s kind of rare last name was used in this book. That was a fun surprise!
Before you read this book, be sure to read Fire and Ice (Guardians #1) first. Each book could perhaps stand alone, but they are SO much better together. I am diving straight into Smoke and Shadows (Guardians #3) this evening with the hubby. I’ve been looking forward to Smoke and Shadows specifically, because the hero of the story is my beloved Viktor, my favorite Victoria Paige character.
