She wants the truth. He wants her.
Ambassador and scientist Skylar Rossi is determined to expose security breaches in an illegal Russian chemical weapons plant. Her mission is personal. She’s spent a lifetime atoning for the sins of her father, an international arms dealer. But the moment she steps off the Trans-Siberian train in Khimgorod – a city that doesn’t exist on any map – she’s alone, isolated and deep in enemy territory. She can trust no one, especially her so-called security escort, the refined and lethal Nikolai Markov.
Ex-KGB agent Nikolai Markov’s assignment is to keep Russia’s dirty little secrets out of Skylar’s hands…by any means necessary. But Skylar Rossi is more than just the mark. She’s responsible for his brother’s death and it’s payback time. So why is he suddenly feeling protective about a woman he might have to kill?
The stakes quickly turn deadly, and Skylar needs Nikolai to keep her safe. But their own chemistry may be far more dangerous…

A cloak and dagger romance that leaves readers satisfied. Skylar Rossi is an acclaimed scientist turned American Ambassador. Her job leads her to a Russian research facility that may or may not be selling chemical weapons to a foreign country. This leads us to Nikolai. Nikolai is her handler and responsible for her personal safety...or is he? The story picks up and gives readers some action packed twists and turns. I don't want to give away too much but I will say that Nikolai and Skylar share a common link that she is unaware of. I was pleasantly surprised by this book and will pick up other titles by this author. Overall I give this book four stars.
