Genre: Suspense Romance
Former Navy SEAL and CIA agent Ronin Cooper is used to living his life in the darkness. A loner by nature, he enjoys his work at Treasure Hunter Security, stays busy on the road, and never lets anyone too close. That is until he notices a mystery redheaded woman spying on him and his colleagues. Then he finds himself sucked into a dangerous rescue mission to Antarctica with a fiery, outspoken woman who pushes every one of his buttons.
Peri Butler will do anything to save her sister. The experienced polar guide knows the deadly black-market antiquities ring, Silk Road, has her twin, but Peri isn’t sure who she can trust. She wants to believe Treasure Hunter Security can help, and soon finds herself facing off with the dark, intense, enigmatic Ronin.
As their mission takes them into the frigid ice and snow of Antarctica, Peri and Ronin’s intense attraction generates a lot of heat. Drawn irresistibly closer, they work to track down Silk Road and Peri’s sister, but what they find buried in the ice could threaten everything. Ronin will sacrifice it all to protect Peri, while she will take every risk, not only to save her sister, but to break through the protective shell around Ronin’s heart.
Another great addition to the Treasure Hunter Security series! I liked both the dark and tortured Ronin and the tough and scrappy Peri. We get a change of pace with Antarctica as the setting but there’s still plenty of adventure.
“I know. You’re dark, bad, and dangerous.” She cupped his cheek.”What happened to you, Ronin, to make you think you don’t deserve some happiness?”
I liked Peri’s adventurous spirit and how positive she was about everything. She’s a naturally take charge person and she loves to embrace life. This was the exact type of woman Ronin needed in his life to help him find happiness. Ronin has been a very quiet character up to this point, so he has a great dark and mysterious vibe going on. Though the books in this series are generally shorter (less than 200 pages), I felt like this one was at a disadvantage because of it. Ronin was such a complex and troubled character due to his upbringing and his less than happy time with the CIA. I would have loved a longer story that could really dive into Ronin’s character and give him the time he deserved.
I’m very intrigued by the secretive government group that’s been popping up in the last couple of books. Spin off series?!
3 stars – it was good
