Coast Guard Admiral Gemma Hendrickson is no stranger to dangerous situations. But she doesn't expect to face one flying medical missions in Ecuador.
Dr. Ben Walsh is a dedicated doctor who gives back by treating patients in remote villages in South America. Ben is also determined to get to know his smart and beautiful pilot.
Returning from a remote village, Ben talks Gemma into flying home along the coast to get extra time together. Their plane is shot at by a drug cartel and Gemma is forced to ditch the crippled plane in the ocean. To hide from the drug runners she leads them deep into the jungle and uses all her skills to fight the cartel and get Ben home safely. But it's not the cartel she fears most, it's the attraction she feels to the young, sexy, and very talented doctor. The last thing Gemma wants is a relationship that could shatter her heart.
In the jungle Gemma was Ben's Guardian from danger. Now, with a steely determination, Ben sets out to become the guardian of Gemma's heart.

About the Author

Rita grew up running the beaches of a barrier island on Florida’s east coast. An island brat, she spent more time climbing weathered oaks and chasing alligators than playing with the dolls her family gave her. She married a Marine and feels fortunate to have lived many places and traveled to the states and countries she didn’t live in.

Rita loves living on an island. She enjoys brilliant sunrises over the Atlantic; walks on the beach having conversations with her characters; enjoying sunsets over the intracoastal waterway from the dock.

She reads or listens to two to three books a week (she prefers listening while doing housework so as not to waste time). She has no favorite author, she just loves a good story.

This is the author's second book and is just as great as her first one! I like the fact that this book is about a strong woman! I love the fast pace, descriptive scenes, humor and riveting action! A must read....I'm really looking forward to her next one too!

The Admiral by Rita Henuber is a fast-paced romantic suspense book. Ms. Henuber has provided readers with a fairly quick read, perfect for those with limited reading time. If you like kick-ass heroines, this is the book for you. Coast Guard Admiral Gemma Hendrickson spends her downtime flying medical missions in Ecuador. Her mission this time is piloting Dr. Ben Walsh until the plane is shot down by the drug cartel. Gemma and Ben's story is loaded with action, suspense, humor and sizzle. I enjoyed this book from the first word till the last and look forward to reading more from Rita Henuber in the future. The Admiral is book 2 of the Under Fire series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I read a print copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
