Where novice Sister Margaret Mary goes, trouble follows. When she barges into a drug deal the local Mexican drug lord captures her. To escape she must depend on undercover DEA agent Jed Bond. Jed's attitude toward her is exasperating, but when she finds herself inexplicably attracted to him, he becomes more dangerous than the men who have captured them by making her doubt her decision to take her final vows. Escape back to the nunnery is imperative, but life at the convent, if she can still take her final vows, will never be the same.
Nuns shouldn't look, talk, act, or kiss like Sister Margaret Mary O'Connor-at least that's what Jed Bond thinks. She hampers his escape plans with her compulsiveness and compassion and in the process makes Jed question his own beliefs. After years of walling up his emotions in an attempt to become the best agent possible, Sister Margaret is crumbling Jed's defenses and opening his heart. To lure her away from the church would be unforgivable-to lose her unbearable.

The book begins as Sister Margaret Mary has finished working on the roof of a new dwelling in Mexico. She wears jeans and shirt. Catherine Castle has suspense on almost every page of her debut novel about novice Sister Margaret Mary and DEA agent Jed Bond. The suspense may be romantic or fear of the Mexican drug lord’s people. When Jed and Margaret admit to themselves they have feelings for one another, it’s Jed who puts on the brakes. His excuse to Margaret is that she is a nun. Margaret repeatedly tells Jed she’s a novice—not really a nun until she takes her final vows. Those vows are scheduled in the very near future. Ms. Castle’s characterizations are excellent, even the bad guys. This book kept me on the edge of my seat until the end. Then I wished the story could be continued. A very good read.
