No one can get close to John Medina, the CIA's legendary Black Ops specialist who works in the shadows of the government's deadliest missions. He is a virtual invisible man, with no friends, many enemies, and a cloud of suspicion surrounding the death of his wife.
And no one knows the dangers better than Niema Burdock. A sharp, steely-nerved communications expert, Niema and her husband, Dallas, worked side by side with Medina on an explosive mission that went tragically wrong.
She could hear it all play out, horribly, on the radio: Dallas set off the detonators at John Medina's command - and found himself trapped in the crossfire. In a shattering blast, Niema's hope and her love were destroyed....
Now Niema has withdrawn to a quiet Intelligence position, and a safe - if predictable - existence that has helped her heal her scars from five years ago. And she never planned to see Medina again. But now John Medina needs her....
A French arms dealer is supplying international terrorist units, and John Medina must infiltrate his compound and crack the deadly ring. But only Niema can plant the undetectable bugs needed to nail the dealer - a feat that begins by going undercover and winning his trust. But when their careful strategy begins to crack, Niema and John take flight - and find their partnership sparking with an erotically charged, unquenchable electricity. In a world of deception, one thing is clear: John Medina has once again set Niema on a free fall into danger and desire - and one can't exist without the other.

"A high-suspense romance.... Howard's trademark darkly sensual style and intense, layered plot will delight her fans." (Booklist)
"Ms. Howard has made the character [of John Medina] irresistible.... A fascinating novel of suspense and sensual tension." (Rendezvous)
"[A] sexy thriller.... Another explosive hit.... When it comes to mixing that perfect blend of romance and danger, Ms. Howard is unbeatable!" (Romantic Times)
I LOVED this book. Action, Heat, Romance, more ACTION! Her writing just gets it going, and I just can't stop reading (listening) to her books.
Another great book by Linda Howard. This book can be a stand alone or listened to along with the other titles related to this one. In order they are - Kill and Tell, All the Queen's Men and then Kiss Me While I Sleep. All are steamy, full of action and easy to listen to.

Say something about yourself!
Got no feel for the characters. Picturing John Medina as sweaty with a receding hairline, non-descript pencil pusher, perhaps with pop-bottle glasses didn’t help. Don’t think that was how he was supposed to come across, but that’s how I saw him due to the narration. Niema seemed like a whiner.
