For years, UCE Captain Cai Randolph has had one goal: Find her missing parents and bring them home. She thinks she's finally located them, but if she's right, they're on the Raft Cities, one of the most lawless and dangerous places on Earth. She searches for a reason for the army to send her, her partner, and his team there and discovers the UCE's most wanted fugitive--Banzai Maguire--is hiding on the floating cities.
Special Forces Captain Jake Tucker is furious when he learns Cai is a woman and not artificial intelligence. There's no chance he's taking her with his team on a mission to the Raft Cities, but when he realizes she's facing multiple threats, he has no choice. No one else will protect her the way he will. But getting her away from the UCE increases her risk and pretending to be lovers complicates everything because it isn't long before Jake wants Cai to be his for real.

THIS IS A GOOD READ. DON'T MISS IT.
Though I'm not normally a reader of futuristics, Patti O'Shea is rapidly winning me over. I loved her first book, Ravyn's Flight, and this one is even stronger. The Power of Two is incredible! A lot of times, books billed as 'action romance' usually favor one element over the other, but O'Shea has it all! Jake and Cai are an amazing and believable couple, and the progression of their realtionship is a delight to behold. Jake is everything you'd want in a hero, and Cai makes a fascinating heroine. O'Shea makes the intricate technical aspects of the story easy to follow. (Trust me, if I can, you can.) If you've read other books in this series, don't miss this one-- it's the best of the lot! But rest assured that the book stands alone well. I couldn't put it down!
In 2176, Cai works for the United Colonies of Earth Army Special Forces and has since her parents vanished when she was a teen. She works from an office while her field partner Captain Jake Tucker carries out the mission. They communicate through telepathy using nanoprobes in the brain. The pair has never met and Jake assumes his cohort is a computer.--- However, Jake¿s notion of his teammate changes when Cai comes out of the ¿shadows¿, enters a bar and uses telepathy to prove she knows him ¿intimately¿. She pleads with him to take her along on his next assignment, the capture of Banzai Maguire because Cai feels the legendary woman can provide her insight into what happened to her parents. Jake wants to refuse because he fears taking a ¿civilian¿ into a scenario, but reluctantly agrees. As they work together in person for the first time, both feel the fire between them, but the objective remains the capture of the legend Banzai before pursuing that attraction.--- The fourth entry in the futuristic romantic science fiction thriller is a terrific entry as nano-technologies are introduced that seem genuine. They pump up the authenticity of the exciting story line. Cai is a fabulous protagonist and Jake is a strong soldier; this duo manages to take their cyber-distant partnership into a blood and guts teaming on two levels: personal and professional. The chase for the woman who started the miniseries Banzai adds a continuity so that fans obtain a winner that can stand alone or enhance the late twenty-first run.--- Harriet Klausner
