My rating: 4 of 5 stars
A tiny Caribbean island makes up this story where everything from kidnapping for ransom, selling of orphaned children and bringing back two people together who once shared a wonderful couple weeks together but one of them had to much guilt and let the other go.
Alexa Alyssandratos is in her mind serving her penance for her twin sisters death by using her family’s wealth to help those less fortunate that her. She has been working as a nurse in a small clinic on St. Isidore Island when the local rebel lord figures out who she is he kidnaps her for ransom. Even while locked up in a tiny shake she is more worried about the little island girl she is trying adopt and who she helped escape before she was taken.
Dan Molina used to be a Air Force Parajumper. It was as he was serving in the Air Force that he met Alexa on the island and he fell in love with her but she broke his heart when she refused wants of a future together. Now he is working for Steele Security and he’s been requested to rescue Alexa by her father.
Thinks do not go well during the rescue and not only are these two trying to stay a step ahead of the rebels and try and save the orpaned children but they also are fighting there still strong attraction to each other while working through their past demons.
This is the second book in the series that introduced us to the group of former Air Force PJ’s. I thought the story flowed better throughout this one and it certainly kept you on your toes wondering how these two were going to make it out of the situation they kept finding themselves in. I am certainly intrigued now to find out more about Kurt Steele (the boss at Steele Security) and Caitlyn Brevard who run’s chartered plane’s out of Barbados.
