Does the boss think Hot--shot can't pull his weight on a real mis--sion any--more? What are a few night--mares? Noth--ing he can't han--dle. Aches and pains? He's had worse. When he's given an "eyes-on" only mis--sion, and paired with a woman-a part-timer who works Secu--rity, not Covert Ops-he wor--ries that his future with Black--thorne, Inc. is on the line. Is she there to eval--u--ate his per--for--mance? The mis--sion? Sim--ple. Locate a woman, believed to be at a super-private com--pound for the rich and famous, and report back. Noth--ing more. His cover? Pre--tend to be a filthy-rich, arro--gant adven--turer and infil--trate the com--pound. But inside the mys--te--ri--ous Windswept Heights, he finds a lot more than his tar--get. Should he stick to the rules, or fol--low his gut? Olivia Fair--banks is con--tent with her two part-time jobs. She's a Physician's Assis--tant in an all-female prac--tice, and works Secu--rity for Black--thorne, Inc. After grow--ing up forced to believe her only func--tion in life is to be the sub--servient wife of a rancher or farmer, she's finally rec--og--nized she's any man's equal. When Mr. Black--thorne sum--mons her for a new assign--ment, she's sur--prised to find it's a Covert Ops job, albeit a sim--ple one. Her role is to mas--quer--ade as an assis--tant to one of the Black--thorne Covert Ops team mem--bers, but she reminds her--self that she's second-fiddle to him only for the pur--pose of this assign--ment. It's her cover, not her life. Still, old feel--ings of resent--ment and inad--e--quacy sur--face. Before long, their sim--ple mis--sion turns into some--thing far more com--plex, and with much dead--lier con--se--quences. Will she con--vince Hot--shot Mc Cade to accept her as his part--ner? And can she deal with the roman--tic feel--ings spring--ing up between them? Watch as things heat up in this sixth book in Terry Odell's pop--u--lar Black--thorne, Inc. action adven--ture romance series. Hot--shot, the team medic, is paired with Olivia, whom read--ers might remem--ber from Dan--ger in Deer Ridge. The action will leave you as breath--less as the high-altitude Rocky Moun--tain set--ting.--Provided by publisher.
