Trace Davidson is determined to protect Christie from her ex-husband who has ordered a hit on her from his jail cell. Trace will do anything it takes, including putting his own life on the line, to make sure Christie survives.
Salvatore Reyes of the Jimenez Cartel intends to make sure his ex-wife never makes it to the witness stand to testify against him. Christie is the only one with enough damning evidence to send him to prison for life. If he’s convicted, he’s as good as dead—the drug cartel will kill Salvatore if he doesn’t kill Christie first. Salvatore isn’t going to let her live another day.
Trace and Christie end up on the run. They must keep moving to avoid Salvatore and the cartel’s men. In the midst of danger, Trace and Christie find love—but first they have to make it out alive.

You will want to read book 2 before this one to know what in the world is going on. I liked both of these books very much. I accidentally skipped book one but it doesn't really seem to matter. I wasn't lost at all starting on book 2.
Taking Fire is the third book in the Deadly Intent series and I seriously hope she continues on with it. While each book is a standalone, they are best read in order to understand what has been going on in the complete storyline arc. This book is about agent Trace Davidson and Christie Reyes. Who, if you remember, was taken hostage by her cartel husband at Bella and Dylan’s wedding. Trace is pretty much in love with Christie and hasn’t stopped thinking about her since the last time he saw her. He knows that she’s now divorced from Salvatore, who abused her. Trace has no tolerance for men who abuse women, especially since it happens in his own family with his uncle, and in the past with his mother. Now, Christie has decided to come see Bella give birth, and no one is going to stop her. An informant lets Trace know that Salvatore has ordered a hit on Christie for as soon as she steps off the plane. From there, it’s a race against time to keep her safe from Salvatore and the cartel until she can testify against Sal at his trial. Lots of great action and suspense here, the story runs smoothly and quickly as Trace tries to keep Christie safe while fighting his feelings for her. Just an awesome book, and I’m happily awaiting the next book in the series!
