When wealthy American businessman Glenn Danning goes missing in Venezuela, investigator Miranda Soto volunteers to track him down. It's her first assignment for the Civilian Personnel Recovery Unit, but this mission is about more than salvaging the remnants of her shattered military career. Glenn was Miranda's best friend and first lover, and she'll do anything to save him from danger - especially since she just lost everything that mattered to her.
Glenn barely survived being kidnapped and tortured as a suspected spy, but the shock of seeing Miranda again gives him a new lease on life. Their still-simmering attraction grows hotter as the couple races through the treacherous jungle. Determined to reach safe ground, they must stay alive long enough to stop the terrifying enemy who still hunts Glenn. And even if they survive, Miranda's dark past could jeopardize their future together.

Former lovers Glenn Danning and Mirando Soto are reunited 10 years when Miranda takes on her first case to retrieve him from Venezuela, where he’s been kidnapped for nebulous reasons.

The suspense is more light-hearted than what I’d expected and written almost in a matter-of-fact way, and I got the very strange, odd feeling like I was reading a romance through engineers’ eyes, which had an added geek element to it. There is however, quite a bit of action as both Miranda and Glenn try to outwit the Venezuelan authorities and that’s where the hot and heavy scenes begin.

Glenn is also strangely likeable – as a former geek turned hot businessman – but it always seemed as though he was more into the relationship than Miranda was, and I didn’t quite like to see him short-changed just as Miranda was too busy still running away from her past.
