Grace Peterson is desperate, in hiding, and on the run after escaping a shadowy group determined to exploit her extraordinary ability to heal others. Her only lifeline - an unerring telepathic ability she shares with her sister - has been severed, leaving her alone and vulnerable. And time is running out....
Enlisted to bring Grace home is Rio, relentless member of the KGI. He's unprepared for his reaction to this wounded, damaged woman, and he's fiercely determined to protect her from those who nearly destroyed her.
In Rio, she finds a safe haven, and for the first time, hope. But the mission is far from over. The danger Grace has eluded is fast closing in. And now it's pitching two lovers toward an unfamiliar horizon, with no place left to hide.

Thought nothing could top Shea/Nathan's book but Rio/Grace's have done it. I loved Rio in the other books and was not disappointed in his story. My favorite KGI audio so far. Wish Audible add the series in book order instead of the skipping the first two books (Sam/Sophie and Ethan/Rachel books), hopefully these books will be added soon.
What I love about Maya Banks is that she knows how to write a strong female character without turning her into a raving, you know what and her male characters know how to be strong as steel with an inner core of sweetness!
So to put it simply if you are a fan of Maya Banks this is a series for you!
As always I encourage Audible to get the rest of the series as soon as possible!
Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!
This listen was just ok. This seems to be a series and this is the first I've listened to. The storyline is similar to others...a family of big hulking brothers and the women they rescue and then go to bed with. There are much better out there. The narrator did a good job.
Myst/thrillers, some contemporary and ✨fun fantasies✨are my favorites but always open for a good story.
3.5 * This book started out with a bang and had a great premise about a set of sister healers. I loved the story right up to the point where it turned into 50 Shades of Gray. I'm not a prude and I love a bit of romance/sex added to my favorite suspense/thrillers, however, it just felt like it became very specific and more like filler and/or an anatomy lesson. A little left to the imagination, in my opinion, is more sexy and can be more romantic. Besides that I loved the strong characters and the story, the fast pace and ever changing plot twists made it exciting. The narration was great and I will look for earlier books in the series.
Stinky cheese. The book was over the top with sickeningly sweet sap.
No, but instead of books being given ratings for 'level of sensuality', maybe they should also be given a 'cheesiness' rating. Perhaps some readers may enjoy a book full of excessive explanations the depth and level of "love" reached after such a short period of time.
Sure. He did well with that which he had to work.
The telepathic link which was flooded with emotional buckets of sap.
Loved this book. I like the narrator's accent. Great performance. Best book of the series. Can't wait for Sam's book.
I almost always enjoy Ms. Banks books. They do have a certain predictability like most genres. And if truth be told, I may have enjoyed this story more with a different narrator. Mr. Berkely did not meet my expectations on the female characters. It actually became distracting enough for me that I did not even finish the book. Perhaps this book is better enjoyed in either paperback, or ebook?
I read all of the KGI series and for a while there Ethan and Rachel's book was my number 1, but then Nathan and Shea came along... But after reading and listening to Rio and Grace's story unfold my opinion has changed because by far this is the best out of all!
Ms. Banks I LOVE YOUR BEAUTIFUL MIND! Keep it coming and make sure we don't wait too long for the audible version of the other books in this series. I can't wait for Rachel and Ethan's novella and of course PJ & Cole too.
I wonder whose next... Steele? Diego? Donovan? Joe?
The narrator was excellent, but the book dragged, maybe because he read it slow. But had he not been so good with proper emphasis and great tone, I wouldn't have made it as far as I did.
The story is uber-boring. Even before he has met her, he's willing to sacrifice his life and his "team's" life for her. Really? He was supposed to be a hardened mercenary, not a naive young man or an idiot. It just was not believable. And I didn't see anything special about her or what she did for him.
The pace was super slow....it took hours just to describe a scene that in the book lasted for maybe 30 minutes. Way too much inner dialog; not enough real dialog between the characters.
Repetitive, repetitive, repetitive questioning by her about him...please! He had just risked his life to save her and she's sitting there suspecting that he is going to kill her. Makes no sense! Either the author had to fill up space or the heroine was really dumb.
I haven't read any other works by this author and I don't think I will -- just isn't my style.
Sales career / married 40 years with 5 grands, I like wholesome romance or mystery type books. I also enjoy self help or motivational books
Don't exactly know why but talking to each other through your mind wasn't real to me. Also unrealistic love interest
with no relationship development. Not near as good as other books I've read of hers.
