Dr. Viviana Lincoln is an expert linguist in several Middle Eastern dialects. Employed by the CIA as a translator, her latest assignment requires a temporary move to a safe-house in Northern Kabul.

Her mundane routine takes a harrowing turn when a high-level prisoner escapes and the safe-house's location is compromised.

Review

I haven’t read anything from Jaid Black in awhile. I’ve always enjoyed her over-the-top eroticas filled with aliens, and other other-worldly characters all having scorching hot sex in descriptive scenes that are both arousing and disturbing. When I saw that she released this book, I was excited to get my hands on it because I already know just what to expect out of a Jaid Black book. And this one definitely did not disappoint.

I enjoyed this book because it was realistic and contemporary. It portrayed the current society in war-torn Syria. It depicted the life of American dignitaries who work for the government, aiming to achieve global peace while knowing that any moment, their lives and positions in that country was in danger. That’s why I really admired this book’s heroine. Aside from being smart, she was brave and principled. The hero was a true, possessive alpha that any romance reader would enjoy.

For a book that has sex written all over it, $old also holds a solid plot, so I really enjoyed it. I see that there’s a book with which features a familiar character. I hope I get the time to insert it in between my current list of reads.
