Penny Kline didn’t come to Honduras on a pleasure trip. She’s here to rescue her kidnapped niece, the only family she’s got left. What she didn’t plan on was walking into a covert ops mission—or being wrapped up in the hard-muscled arms of Rafe Ortega. The cool-as-ice operative’s touch may get her all hot and bothered, but no man can have a hold on her heart until her niece is home where she belongs.
Even in the tropics, Alpha Security operative Rafe can take down the bad guys without breaking a sweat. Hostage extractions. Clandestine missions. Those are the things he’s been trained to handle. Relationships? Not so much. But one look at this strong, sexy redhead and he’s seized by a fierce urge to protect her at all costs. Now Penny and Rafe will have to up their game because they’re about to go into a master criminal’s lair without backup, and the danger—and passion—is about to explode . . .
I loved the romance and suspense in this novel. There is a lot of action too with characters who kick butt and can take a good butt kicking as well.
Penny shows up in Honduras in search of her niece and closest friend. While on the hunt, she is “captured” by Rafe, a former SEAL and member of Alpha Security, an undercover organization. Penny is no pushover to say the least. Trained as a bounty hunter, she can definitely hold her own and does when put to the test. Against his better judgement, Rafe brings Penny into the mission knowing that if he doesn’t she will continue the search for her niece on her own.
Both Penny and Rafe are standoffish when it comes to relationships, but sparks fly between them immediately leading to quite a few steamy scenes.
Heated Pursuit by April Hunt is a quick, easy read and is perfect for anyone who loves romance and suspense but does not have a lot of extra time for reading.
