Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Jennings (Pursuit) starts this well-plotted romantic suspense novel with a literal bang: gunfire and explosions outside an American embassy in a fictional West African country. Defense analyst Claire Day and Marine Daniel Weston are nearly killed when suspiciously well-armed rebels attack. A year later, Claire has emerged from a three-month coma with no clear memory of the bombing, only nightmares with a brown-haired man protecting her. When she sees Dan on TV, she flies to Washington, D.C., to see if he can help with her lost memory. Dan thought she died in the attack, and he's thrilled this fantastic woman is alive. But someone is out to silence any memories she may have of the bombing, and soon they're facing danger together again. Occasionally weak and repetitive prose is the only snag to this tale of murder, arson, and sex. (Aug.)

Marine Daniel Weston is attracted to Defense Intelligence Agency analyst Claire Day since he first saw her at the American Embassy in Laka, Africa where both are assigned. He does not act on his attraction. A too well planned attack and bombing of the embassy leaves several occupants dead and Claire in a three month coma with situational amnesia as she has no lucid memory of the devastating incident. A year after the assault that blew away her DIA career, Claire suffers from nightmares with the only glimmer being a brown-haired man trying to protect her. When she sees her dream hero who she believes may have saved her life on TV, she flies to Washington to meet him and see if he can help her regain her memory of the attack. Dan is stunned with euphoria as he thought Claire died in the bombing. Realizing his woman is not quite what she was, he vows to assistt her with her recall and to keep her safe this time, but someone wants to insure her memory stays buried even in a grave. This is a strong romantic suspense thriller that grips the audience from the onset and only tightens the hold especially when the lead couple reunites. Fast-paced throughout, mesmerized fans will root for Claire and Dan to not just make it but make it alive. As Paradise Lost can become Paradise Regained but more likely dead. Harriet Klausner

## This book was fabulous. I read 'Persuit' by Elizabeth Jennings and absolutely loved it, so I decided to try this one. Boy, am I glad I did. It was amazing. The suspense was tremendous and there was plenty of romance and sex which I find lacking in so many suspense stories. The characters were perfectly developed. Not that I didn't love the heroine (I absolutely did) but the hero was definitely the star of this book. Not just hot, but Holy crap hot!! Dan the Man indeed. Note to author: this would be a great springboard for a series....hint hint!
