Can a feisty security agent who hates taking orders and a
covert ops specialist who has something to prove, put aside
their own differences and their own agendas long enough to
uncover the secrets of Windswept Heights?
Blackthorne, Inc. medic Glenn "Hotshot" McCade itches to get
away from what he considers milk run assignments after being
injured on a previous op. Does the boss think Hotshot canâ€™t
pull his weight on a real mission anymore? What are a few
nightmares? Nothing he can't handle. Aches and pains? Heâ€™s
had worse. When he's given an "eyes-on" only mission, and
paired with a womanâ€”a part-timer who works Security, not
Covert Opsâ€”he worries that his future with Blackthorne, Inc.
is on the line. Is she there to evaluate his performance?
The mission? Simple. Locate a woman, believed to be at a
super-private compound for the rich and famous, and report
back. Nothing more. His cover? Pretend to be a filthy-rich,
arrogant adventurer and infiltrate the compound. But inside
the mysterious Windswept Heights, he finds a lot more than
his target. Should he stick to the rules, or follow his gut?
Olivia Fairbanks is content with her two part-time jobs.
She's a Physician's Assistant in an all-female practice, and
works Security for Blackthorne, Inc. After growing up forced
to believe her only function in life is to be the
subservient wife of a rancher or farmer, she's finally
recognized sheâ€™s any manâ€™s equal. When Mr. Blackthorne
summons her for a new assignment, she's surprised to find
it's a Covert Ops job, albeit a simple one. Her role is to
masquerade as an assistant to one of the Blackthorne Covert
Ops team members, but she reminds herself that she's
second-fiddle to him only for the purpose of this
assignment. It's her cover, not her life. Still, old
feelings of resentment and inadequacy surface. Before long,
their simple mission turns into something far more complex,
and with much deadlier consequences. Will she convince
Hotshot McCade to accept her as his partner? And can she
deal with the romantic feelings springing up between them?
Watch as things heat up in this sixth book in Terry Odellâ€™s
popular Blackthorne, Inc. action adventure romance series.
Hotshot, the team medic, is paired with Olivia, whom readers
might remember from Danger in Deer Ridge. The action will
leave you as breathless as the high-altitude Rocky Mountain
