Her power-hungry husband takes pleasure in her pain, but she’s done playing the victim.
Three years ago, ex-operative Sophie Jordan made the mistake of falling in love—and marrying—her target. Now she’s paying for it tenfold. Her husband might be one of the sexiest men alive, but he’s also a psychopath. She’s been a virtual prisoner, and the time has come for retribution—and escape.
Undercover agent Malcolm Gunnison has his orders: get intel from Sophie’s arms-dealer husband, then kill him. He plans to get rid of her, too, if she gets in his way, but he’s unprepared when she gets under his skin instead. Whose side is she on? And what is she hiding behind those mesmerizing eyes?
Sophie vowed to never fall for another man again, but this sexy undercover agent is different. With danger mounting, can Malcolm and Sophie trust each other—and their growing passion—enough to get out of this operation alive?

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Sophie's first mistake was falling in love and marrying the man she was targeting. That was 3 years ago. Two years ago, he hired someone to kill her. The bullet close to the spine left her paralyzed .. at least that is what her husband thinks. She's spent a lot of time learning to first move her legs, then walk. Considering she's been a prisoner in a wheelchair in her room, that's been quite remarkable, especially as there are cameras and recorders in her bedroom. Her husband is a psychopath and he takes much pleasure in her pain. But the time has come when she's planning to leave ... even if she has to kill him to do it. Malcolm Gunnison is undercover... working for the same covert organization as Sophie once did. His orders are to get information from Sophie's arms-dealer husband. It is his decision on what to do with Sophie. But Malcolm is unprepared for his attraction to Sophie, especially as he doesn't know if he can trust her. And Sophie knows this is a dangerous man ... but can she trust him to help her leave her husband? As Romantic Suspense goes, this is a winner. There's tons of action and excitement. There's also a lot of explicit sexual moments, as well as language. This is definitely not a book for youngsters. Sophie and Malcolm make a good pair .. they're both very strong characters who fight their attraction with everything they have. This is the third in a series, however, it does well as a stand-alone. Each book in the series have different characters, so no cliff hangers to deal with. Many thanks to the author / Montlake Romance / Netgalley for the digital copy of WILDFIRE.
