About the book:
Undercover at a tiger sanctuary, Special Agent Grayson Wilde’s convinced the owner must be involved in a wildlife trafficking ring—until someone tries to kill her. Now with Gemma Rollins’s life on the line, it’s clear that more than the wildcats need his help. Gemma’s determined to rebuild the tiger oasis she lost when her family died. But someone wants her out of the way, and she’s starting to wonder if her parents’ and uncle’s deaths were really accidental. Grayson says he’ll do anything to protect Gemma, but she can’t shake the feeling that her alluring new volunteer might not be all that he seems. With a vicious criminal closing in, though, she has to trust Grayson… because she won’t survive without him.
An incredibly exciting suspense novel!
This book is a “stand-alone within a series” novel. The story itself stands alone though characters from the first book are mentioned and make cameo appearances.
I absolutely love both of the main characters in this wonderful story. I was completely able to understand the emotional hang-ups that both Gray and Gemma deal with. They are so well developed and their pasts are slowly shared and discussed.
The journey that Gemma goes on to trust God again is very easy to understand. She wants to believe but her heartache has raised horrible doubts.
The mystery about the wildlife trafficking ring is gradually spelled out. The suspense and danger that Gemma and Gray face is so well presented that I was caught up in it and at times my heart was racing as their lives were in danger. I was hooked from the first chapter and knew that I needed to find out who was behind it and how they would be caught.
I am giving this wonderful book a rating of 5 stars and highly recommending it. I can’t wait to see what comes next in this series.
