Yet as scorching days melt into sultry nights, Holly is drawn to the mysterious capitaine, with his unexpected sense of honor and his searing touch. When they’re double-crossed, they’ll have to risk trusting each other in ways they never imagined…because in this deadly game of deception, it’s their lives—and hearts—on the line.

I loved this book would be an understatement. It was full of suspense and action. There was also a very steamy romance in it too! It had everything and then some. I was a little disappointed when I found out I had to wait until May to read anything else by Brynn Kelly. I want to read it now! I don't want to give too much away about what happens in this book so that you can find out on your own by reading the book. There really is so much that happens to both characters during the book. It will keep you on the edge of your seat. I know I had trouble putting it down. I would love to see this turned into a movie. My husband would even love this book if I could get him to read!
