Trace of Fever by Lori Foster
Undercover mercenary Trace Rivers loves the adrenaline rush of a well-planned mission. First he'll earn the trust of corrupt businessman Murray Coburn, then gather the proof he needs to shut down the man's dirty smuggling operation. It's a perfect scheme—until Coburn's long-lost daughter saunters in with her own deadly plan for revenge.
With a smile like an angel and fire in her eyes, Priscilla Patterson isn't who she seems to be. But neither is the gorgeous bodyguard who ignites all her senses. Joining forces to plot Coburn's downfall, Priss and Trace must fight the undeniable heat between them. For one wrong move, one lingering embrace, will expose them to the wrath of a merciless opponent….
Is it possible for me to love two men? Yes, it is. I thought Dare from When You Dare was my favorite hero of all time but now I am torn. Trace is a to die for hottie with a very edgy side until he meets Priss and then all bets are off. My favorite parts of the book are when he can no longer contain himself with Priss. Trace is the kind of guy who is prepared NO MATTER WHAT, yet finds himself injured by little bitty Priss. I don't mean emotionally injured, I mean physically. That scene had me giggling.
If there is one heroine that I do not want to mess with, it's Priss. When she has a goal in mind, don't try to stop her just move out of the way. She is a strong character with a gritty past, which actually serves her purpose throughout the story. I wish I could state examples here of the plot line but there are so many twists and turns that it might give it away. I just cannot bring myself to do that.
I enjoyed being able to revisit Dare, Molly, Chris, the dogs and LOVED Matt's character. Affectionately known as "Hairdresser", he made me laugh so hard. Trace of Fever deals with heavy subject matter that I think a lot of other authors just couldn't pull off. Ms Foster is one of the best. Sexual tension is laced throughout this book and very often I might add. This one element alone had me captivated. I was up all night reading Trace of Fever and I hated to see it end. In the epilogue (I am a lover of epilogues) we are introduced to Jackson in more depth. He gets his own book Savor the Danger which comes out toward the end of June I believe. Savor the Danger is already on my list to buy and I can't wait until it comes out. You really do have to read this entire series. Romantic suspense at it's finest, there is never a dull moment. I highly recommend this entire series to those who love a juicy story line with some breathtaking characters.
