When a guy stops at a roadside diner, he expects bad chili, not a hostage situation. But that's where SG-5 operative Harry van Zandt finds himself when an armed cartel blows through the door.

When a guy stops at a roadside diner, he expects bad chili, not a hostage situation. But that's where SG-5 operative Harry van Zandt finds himself when an armed cartel blows through the door. They're not after him but the woman in the next booth, and their message is clear: she's got seventy-two hours to locate and deliver a valuable historical document or her brother dies. And if Harry wants to live, he'd better go with her.
Make His Day
Not that he minds helping Georgia McLain. The tough treasure hunter is as smart as she is sexy. But she needs Harry if she's going to double-cross these thugs and clear her father's name. Too bad the document is also of vital importance to Harry's top-secret mission. Now, the beautiful, infuriating woman he's starting to fall for could lead him right to what he needs—and what she so desperately wants.

After Georgia McLain¿s father dies in prison, she practically dedicates her life to proving his innocence she is determined to get her hands on the dossier of Gen. Arthur Duggin, certain that it will contain evidence necessary to clear her father¿s name. Her search for crucial information has taken her many places, most recently a jail cell. After her brother, Finn, bails her out of her most recent bind, they stop at a diner where their day goes from bad to worst when they find themselves in a middle of a deliberate hostage situation. The hostage taker, one Charlie Casto, is demanding that Georgia attend an auction of Gen Duggin¿s mementos and steal the dossier. Georgia must return to the diner with the dossier within three days in order for her brother and the other hostages to stay alive. The Smithson Group¿s Harry van Zandt happens to be in the diner and is ordered to go with Georgia to retrieve the dossier. What Casto and Georgia do not know is that Harry is after the elusive dossier as well. ******* Georgia is an independent woman who is not pleased at having Harry forced upon her, even if he is the most gorgeous man she has ever laid eyes on. Harry, on the other hand, is quietly accepting of his role in attending the auction with Georgia, seeming almost eager to help her out. He soon realizes that Georgia is a very intelligent woman, with a biting wit and his interest in her quickly goes beyond the retrieval of the General¿s file. Georgia is thankful for Harry¿s help and over the course of their three days together, finds herself falling hard for this man who is unlike any other man she knows. The chemistry between Georgia and Harry is intensely passionate from the start, and their simply being together is enough to spark fiery emotion. Their intricate plan to get the General¿s file as well as the players involved are excellently and cleverly written. ****** Alison Kent is quickly becoming the master at writing action-filled romance, or is that romance-filled action? Either way, she knows how to wrap suspense, action, and scorching romance into a tidy package, complete with characters that are always intelligent, loyal, and wonderfully capable of making you wish for more when you turn that last page.

Deep Breath is another sensational tale from the SG-5 team by Alison Kent. _________________ Georgia McLain is on a quest to clear her father of treason charges after he died in prison. She knows if she finds General Arthur Duggin¿s Totalsky dossier that it will clear her fathers name and she can start to live her life. Her first attempt to retrieve the file lands her in jail and on her way to her second attempt she becomes involved in a hostage situation at a local dinner. This new threat sends her to retrieve it for another party but the hostage taker sends a man from the dinner along to help her as he holds her brother captive. ___________________________ Harry Van Zandt had been following Georgia to retrieve the dossier for his boss at the Smithson Group. He keeps this tidbit of information to himself as he is dragged into helping Georgia retrieve the document. As he gets to know Georgia his feelings of that this is just another assignment begin to change. This woman is strong, quick witted and hot. She has invaded his soul. __________________________ Georgia is used to depending on herself so letting Harry in really takes some work on her part. But Harry is different then any other man she has ever known. He makes her want more than just a quick affair. Harry just makes her want. ____________________ Deep Breath is a complex and vastly layered story. The characters though they have only know each other a short time, circumstances force the relationship on the fast track. The dialogue is fast-paced, the chemistry between Harry and Georgia is steamy. It was a wonderful read, couldn¿t put it down once I started it. Kudos.
