Sensuality: HOT

RT Rating

A timely subject matter, strong plotting and a quick pace make for a mostly rewarding read that's marred by several gigantic coincidences, and hero Ben's initial treatment of heroine Anna is fairly obnoxious -- enough to make the reader wonder how she could even like him, let alone feel anything more.

Former Army sniper Ben Benedict is now attached to ICE, Immigration and Customs Enforcement,
a branch of the Department of Homeland Security. Assigned to work with the gang unit of the Washington, D.C., police department, Ben is attempting
to locate an al Qaeda operative
reported to be planning a biochemical attack when he's forced to shoot a teenager. Already suffering from
nightmares as a result of his deployment overseas, Ben is sent to see
a therapist, Dr. Anna Schuster.

Resentful and skeptical, Ben refuses to cooperate with Anna until he has no choice. Getting involved with a patient isn't ethical, but Anna's attracted to Ben -- and their affair proves to be even more dangerous than either could possibly foresee. (MIRA, Jul., 384 pp., $7.99)
