Estranged from her general father for years, Sloan Gideon is not about to let him dictate whether or not she can rescue her friend Gina from the Colombian drug lord who kidnapped her. Although Sloan works for Edge, a group of mercenaries, this rescue is a personal mission. Lucas Ramsay owes the general a lot, so even though his bum knee forced him out of the service, he agrees to stop Sloan from going to Colombia. Plan A fails miserably, so Lucas follows Sloan south, where she reluctantly agrees to let him help. Why did Lorenzo Soma grab Gina? Unfortunately those who know will not reveal the reasons any time soon. (SIGNET ECLIPSE, Mar., 368 pp., $7.99)
