Luke Stone is just like a stone. After his pregnant wife is murdered, he closes up emotionally, until his employer asks him to protect Jessica Chan, who's a target of the Chinese Triad Dragons for attempting to expose their atrocities. Luke doesn't want to be responsible for anyone, and he's surprised to find a kindred spirit in Jessica. When they're on the run with only each other to lean on, their emotional barriers crumble. The Heart of a Renegade (4.5) is an action ride full of thrills and surprises and a love story that will make your heart beat faster. Loreth Anne White has expanded her Shadow Soldiers series, and intriguing and dynamic characters continue to make it compelling.
