Here is a question that is remarkably answered in this book:
how would you feel if you had your life planned out -- you
are doing good things for people in need then something
happens, and you might not be able to continue doing what
you love? This is what Bianca faces when she is kidnapped
along with a diplomat's son while taking a vacation. She is
fighting for her life when the kidnappers are attacked and
is accidentally BITTEN UNDER FIRE by one of her rescuers, a
bite that could destroy her world. But one big Marine just
might be able to help her and maybe offer her more than she
Sgt. Carlos "Cage" Castillo is a member of Bravo Team WOLF
(aka as Weapons of Lethal Force) and was part of the team
that rescued Bianca and Collin Valenzuela (who truly adores
Bianca) and the one who accidentally bit her during the
fight with her captor. He can be forgiven as the captor was
trying very hard to kill her. Once she was safely back home,
he was drawn to watch over her in case the bite changed her
into a shifter. OK ... that's what he tells himself but it
is so much more, but it will take awhile for the truth to
slap him over the head.
BITTEN UNDER FIRE is fantastic. It is a realistic aspect of
changes that force you to see things differently. Not only
was Bianca forced to look at her life in a whole new way,
but Cage was too. He had to see his life, his family, and
his world differently as emotions, real life and in his
case, something he wasn't used to -- fear -- forces him to
look closer and feel more. I adored Bianca's parents and
laughed at her father's thrill of indoor plumbing (read the
book and see the places they were and you will understand).
Cage's team members lent the camaraderie that always gets to
me; they are serious, funny and supportive.
If you are looking for a sweet, amazingly hot romance, a
look at the world from different aspects that somehow manage
to meet in the middle, characters that will stay with you
even after the book ends then get your hands on BITTEN UNDER
FIRE by author Heather Long.
Bianca Devlin’s work is her life. Now, she’s finally taking
a vacation...and guerillas hit her resort to kidnap a
diplomat’s son. She does the only thing that makes
sense—intervene to save the child’s life. Being dragged into
the jungle with a scared kid she’s determined to protect was
definitely not how she saw this trip ending.
After she returns to Texas, the last person Bianca expected
to see was Sergeant Carlos “Cage” Castillo, the member of
Bravo Team WOLF that helped rescue her. Nevertheless, there
he is, living across the street from the house she just
bought. The coincidence is alarming, but she has to admit,
his presence isn’t entirely unwanted.
But there’s something off about Cage—the way he can move
without a sound or the weird way his eyes seem to almost
glow at times. And how can Bianca manage her growing
attraction, when everything she knows about him and his
reason for being there, turns out to be a lie?
