Product Description

Product Description

He doesn't mind breaking rules, just never his own. Rule #1: You don't seduce the woman you protect.

“Freaking amazing!” "…a brilliant story of courage, hope, and love…” "…fun, fast-paced, and emotionally satisfying…"

After the death of his wife and twin sons, Army vet Ian Slaney is a shadow of his former self. On the path of self-destruction, only his best friend's disappearance in South America pulls Ian back from the ledge. He rushes to Brazil, only to discover that his friend was murdered. The single lead in the case is also the single biggest obstacle--Daniela, a mysterious beauty very much in need of protection, with a host of secrets hidden in a dark past. As the two of them track down clues and try to untangle an impossible case, they draw the attention of all the wrong people, and danger follows them back to the US.

Ian wants the murderers. Daniela wants Ian to acknowledge the hot sparks of passion between them. But convincing Ian to set aside his protective instincts proves more difficult than teaching a water buffalo to tap dance.

FROM PUBLISHERS WEEKLY:

"Marton's tense nail-biter of a contemporary romantic thriller spans two continents and several years as American Ian and Brazilian Daniela join forces to find the man who killed Ian's former army buddy, Finch. The story comes to life with descriptions as lush and colorful as the wild Amazonian jungle where Daniela lives a hand-to-mouth existence with her mother.

At 15, Daniela is forced into prostitution. Years go by and eventually she's sold to Finch as a housekeeper and sexual slave. After he is murdered by a mysterious man, a terrified Daniela hides out in his home, which is where Ian finds her when he goes looking for his friend. Since she's the only one who can identify Finch's killer, the two form an uneasy alliance. Ian vows to protect Daniela from all men, including himself, which becomes a problem as she begins to fall in love with him.

Marton succeeds with an edgy mix of love and danger." (Quarter-finalist for the BookLife Prize in Fiction)"

This is one epic love story you won’t want to miss!

Format: Kindle Edition
This story starts of in Brazil where Daniela lives with her mother. In this world girls do whatever they have to in order to survive which is often prostitution. Daniela was sold into prostitution then was bought by an American named Finch who was later killed. When his friend, Ian, came to find him he found Daniela in Finch's house and learned Finch was dead. Ian stuck around, determined to find out what happened to his friend. In the meantime, he took care of Daniela.

Ian was ex-military with the skills to allow him to find answers about Finch. After losing his wife and twin sons, he had anger issues and drank too much. He worked to overcome these problems. Daniela was a strong girl and just lived the way she had seen women live all her life. It was hard for her to understand that Ian just wanted to care for her but not have sex. As Ian learned more about Finch's murder, he realized Daniela was in danger and he had to get her out of the Amazon so they went to America. This was a whole new world for Daniela that she learned to love.

Years later Ian had a mission to find a kidnapped American baby in Brazil. Daniela wanted to work with Ian and this was the perfect job since she knew the area much better than he did.

It was hard to read this story because it talked about a difficult subject that North Americans just don't have to deal with. I didn't like the characters at first but as I got to know them more I really liked them. It was very depressing at the beginning with what the women had to do to live. Both Ian and Daniela had very troubled pasts but where able to appreciate what the other had gone through.

After reading this story I wanted to go and save all the women and young girls in third world countries.

I received an ARC of this book from the author but I am voluntarily reviewing it as I do with all the books I read.
