A sizzling new suspense trilogy bursts onto the scene as Reece invites readers to join the adventures of Last Chance Rescue Enterprises. The hero and heroine of this tale have quite the backstory, although the hero is unaware of their connection. These protagonists are awash in anger, bitterness and guilt, but that won't stop them from saving those in need. Plenty of danger and intrigue make this a promising series launch!

As a result of horrific events, young Devon Winters remade herself into Eden St. Claire, a tough and skilled undercover operative. Eden works for Noah McCall, head of Last Chance Rescue, who specializes in the retrieval of people who have been kidnapped or held hostage.

Jordan Montgomery has worked for a clandestine government agency for years and now wants a change. He is offered a position at LCR and decides to take it -- if they'll help him track down a missing woman named Devon. When Eden realizes Noah is forcing her to face her past, she is pissed, but Jordan is good at his job, and they need him to take down a ruthless slavery and kidnapping ring. A confrontation is inevitable. (BALLANTINE, May, 384 pp., $6.99)

Rescue Me

Submitted by Robin in PA on June 2, 2011 - 8:41pm.

Eden St. Claire works for Last Chance Rescue Enterprises (LCR) as a covert operative.  She has many secrets, including the fact that her real name is Devon.  Seven years ago she was attacked, raped and left for dead in an alley.  Now she has a new face (thanks to plastic surgeons) and a new identity.  What she doesn't expect is a new partner.  Jordan Montgomery, a new operative at LCR, has been looking for Devon for years.  He approached LCR in hopes they would help find her.  Instead, they give him a job helping Eden St. Claire search for an organized network of criminals that are stealing children.

I was totally engrossed in this book.  The story has a lot of intrigue and undercover action. I felt bad for the heroine and could see why she wanted to stay hidden.  But, I knew the hero felt terrible about what had happened in the past and I wanted to see him forgiven. I will hopefully start the next book in the series soon.  My rating:  4.5 Stars.
