Overview

This time, the straight-and-narrow path could be the road to ruin.

Dr. Elyse Morgan's mission: find the cure to the HTN4 virus. The compensation, courtesy of the United Nations: a lab stocked with hi-tech goodies, limitless resources and enough chocolate to make her rear look like a cellulite farm. Bonus: she gets to live.

Rescued (kidnapped) and secreted (imprisoned) on an undersea warship, Elyse adjusts to her assumed identity as a cadet with the finesse of a toeless ballerina. Her sulfuric temper and blatant insubordination capture the unwanted attention of the ship's captain, the gorgeous, infuriating, engaged Nicoli Marek.

Elyse would rather perform her own autopsy than become the other woman, but Nicoli-who's as full of himself as he is of secrets-regards his impending marriage as a mere political transaction. And Elyse as fair game.

As Elyse's suspicions about the UN's true agenda mount along with her attraction to the relentless, chronically shirtless captain, she must choose between the murky path to everything she's ever wanted, or the squeaky-clean path of self-sacrifice-which could mean taking the secrets of the virus with her to the grave.

Warning: Features a strong, chocolate-loving heroine who takes no prisoners on the way to saving the world from an epidemic and winning a captain's heart.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In this lively but flawed SF romance debut, Scarlett delivers what could have been a solid story set in the war-torn year 2053. Dr. Elyse Morgan is kidnapped by the United Nations for her own good, so her work on curing the virus known as the Black Death won’t fall into the hands of terrorists using the virus as a weapon. Stashed aboard a giant undersea vessel, Morgan clashes with authority figures, including the sexy Capt. Nicoli Marek. As she desperately tries to find the cure that could have saved her family, she reluctantly falls for Marek, unwilling to give in to her feelings as long as he’s engaged to another woman and unable to relax as long as the terrorists are searching for her. The engaging characters and flashes of humor are substantially undermined by the inexorable romance, lack of tension, and shaky pacing, leading to a hasty wrapup. (Sept.)

    Humor. Romance. Sass

    Dr. Elyse Morgan's working on a way to combat the biologically weaponized virus that killed her parents. She lives on her own on a small island, essentially in her own world, minding her own business. Until two armed forces come to the island--one with the intent to kill (team Khaki) and the other with the intent to rescue (team Black). Elyse is whisked away by team Black, hidden under the ocean on board a UN vessel to perform her research and experiments without fear for her life.

    Enter Nicoli Marek, captain of the Bellator. Elyse does her best to ignore the way his smile affects her--he's an engaged man and that's one degree of wrong she'll never give into.

    Elyse's addiction to chocolate, her intelligence and whit make her one of my favorite heroines. She fights for what she believes in and isn't afraid to do whatever it takes--even bribe the head of the UN.

    Well written, funny, heart-wrenching and steamy. I'd work out a lot more if Nicoli was in my gym, usually shirtless!

    So. This is the book that I'll be reading forever when I'm in a slump.

    The snark, the UST, the banter, the swoon, the unbelievably awesome characters... There just aren't enough words to describe how phenomenal this book is.

    Also? I call dibs on Nicoli. He is the swooniest of swoony boys.
