OPERATION: MIDNIGHT ESCAPE
After testifying against Ian Rasmussen, Leigh Michaels lost herself in the witness protection program. When he breaks out of prison, she's on the run again, and there's only one man she can turn to -- the federal agent who captured her heart and then used her as bait. Jake Vanderpol never forgave himself for the part he played in the plot to nab the billionaire, nor could he forget the feel of Leigh in his arms. Linda Castillo's Operation: Midnight Escape (4.5) is page-turning romantic suspense. The author does a wonderful job crafting Jake, a tough-as-nails hero whose only vulnerability is the woman he's sworn to protect.
