TAKE ME IF YOU DARE
TAKE ME IF YOU DARE (3) by Candace Havens: P.I. Mariska Stonegate is in Thailand looking for a missing man. She arranges for a local detective to assist her. But he's more than just an investigator. Jackson Thomas is an operative whose investigation of an arms dealer has uncovered a human-trafficking ring. Now something has gone terribly wrong and his own side is trying to kill him. When sexual attraction flames between them, Jackson knows staying around Mariska will endanger her. Jackson has to protect Mariska, save himself and, if possible, clear himself -- but can he do all this while falling in love? The characters are sympathetic, sexy and attractive, but the plot is unbelievable and slow in places.
