My Review:
Storyline: Former FBI agent Marc Rossi wants back in the investigation game so he joins his cousin's  security and investigation firm, The Guardian Angelinos as an consultant.  Heading to Northern Ireland, his mission is to extract information from a missing socialite and get her out of there. But the ice queen turns out to be a warm and beautiful woman -- a woman with a mission of her own. As the daughter of an infamous fugitive, Devyn Sterling wants to find her biological mother and hopefully find the connection she never had with her adoptive parents. But her mother may just be one of the bad guys. When their investigation uncovers lies, secrets, and international terrorism, Devyn and Marc must trust in each other to survive.

Characters: Mark is a very sexy alpha male who's very charming, funny, dreamy and who's very calm and collected in dire situations.  He's very caring and protective of his woman. 

Devyn is a very beautiful, smart, stubborn and feels very alone since her adoptive parents are the ones to show their affections. 

It was a delight to see Vivi, Zach, Uncle Nino and even Agent Lang who seems like an intriguing character. 

Romance: The relationship starts off slowly but is very believable and tense.  When they finally get together it was so hot and sexy you really want them to end up with each other.  When they finally admit they love each other it was very sweet.

Killer:  The killers are quite vicious and will kill anything or anyone to accomplish their goal. 

Can't wait to read Vivi's story "Face of Danger".
