She Needs a Hero...
Abby Thompson didn’t sign up to be the daughter of the President of the United States. The position was forced on her by the small matter of her birth. Preferring a quiet life of study, she’s content to leave the politics and the international intrigue to her father. Unfortunately, the most powerful man on the planet is sure to make enemies. When a group of armed thugs takes her hostage half a world away, demanding the U.S. government release prisoners in exchange for her safe return, she fears her father’s policy of “not negotiating with terrorists” means she’ll never see the shores of the Potomac again. Luckily, there’s one glimmer of hope. His name is Carlos Soto. And though she abruptly ended things with him years ago, she knows now he’s the only man who can save her…
Black Knights, Inc. to the Rescue...
Carlos “Steady” Soto has taken part in his fair share of dangerous missions working at the covert government defense firm of Black Knights Inc. But nothing prepared him for the emotional rollercoaster he faces when he’s tasked with rescuing the only woman he ever loved—who also broke his heart. Racing against time and outmaneuvering a group of trained terrorists will take everything he’s got. Plus there’s the heat simmering between them which is threatening to ignite into an inferno. While ruthless enemies stalk them, they must learn to trust each other again. Even if they do make it out alive, will Abby turn her back on him…for the second time?
Full Throttle by Julie Ann Walker
Full Throttle is another fabulous, nail biter installment of the Black Knight Inc. series by Julie Ann Walker. Get ready to have your adrenaline pumping, in this non-stop action packed race for survival.
Abby Thompson is the USA president's daughter. While she is traveling for a conference oversea, a kidnapping threat is unraveled. Carlos “Steady” is placed on a special task force to protect Abby. Abby and Steady have a past history leaving unresolved skeletons in their closests.
When the chips are down, Abby must decide whether to come clean or just grasp for the fleeting future she desires.
This a wonderful, intense story with a thick fog of romantic tension. You are also provided with a strong mystery and suspense filled plot. I really found myself immersed in this story and I absolutely loved Abby's giving heart.
Ultimately, we have a conflicted uber-alpha male and a woman that drive him mad, facing insurmountable odds while traversing a life and death situation. Who wouldn't love to read that! I surely did :D.
