For justice. For country. For love.
After witnessing her friend’s sexual assault, seven year senior, Magdalena Wells escapes an attack with a few bruises and a thousand questions. As a journalist in practice, if not in pay, Mags vows to utilize the skills she mastered in the Democratic Republic of Congo and answer every single one, just as soon as she gets the hell out of town.
Law Pierce’s aim is rest and relaxation after two years undercover in South Africa on an extended Base Branch mission, but restlessness puts him in trouble’s path. As a servant of justice, Law will do everything in his power to keep trouble safe. The fact that trouble’s petite stature and luscious curves stir his every primal instinct is a massive inconvenience he struggles to ignore.
Together Magdalena and Law uncover a web of corruption and dirty lies that could set their country’s top official ablaze, if the inferno doesn’t consume them first.
Megan was born and raised among the live oaks and shrimp boats of the Mississippi Gulf Coast, where her enormous family still calls home. She attended college at the University of Southern Mississippi where she received a bachelor’s degree in curriculum, instruction, and special education. For several years Megan worked as a teacher in Mississippi. She married and moved to South Carolina and worked for an international non-profit organization as an instructor and co-director.
In 2009 Megan fell in love with books. Until then, books had been a source for research or the topic of tests. But one day she read Mercy by Julie Garwood. And Oh Mercy, she was hooked!
Megan lives in Southern Arkansas where she pens sizzling suspense novels.
Magdalena a journalist in training and a seven year senior in college just came back from a long trip to Africa. When she comes home she is not prepared for what she walks into. Her longtime friend and roommate is being sexually assaulted. Not long after the attack Magdalena barley escapes an attack herself. She makes it to her family’s home, and runs into a man named Law. He seems to be the only man who can help her.
Law has just spent the last two years undercover in South Africa. His is looking for some rest and relaxation but that gets thrown out a window when Magdalena comes stumbling into his life. What happened to her, who did this? He will do what it takes to keep her safe.
This was an interesting story, it had an air of truth about it. It made you wonder if something like this could be for real. Can people be that rotten? They can which made the story even more compelling. The story took a little bit to get to the point however, I have not read any of Mitcham’s work before so I am not sure if this is her style of writing. The romantic aspect of Law and Magdalena I loved, especially what Law has endured prior to meeting Magdalena, you couldn’t help but feel for him, for them.
All in all I liked it and look forward to reading Mitchman’s work in the future.
