Niema Burdock must work with CIA operations specialist John Medina--a man she blames for her husband's death--when they attempt to infiltrate an international terrorist ring

& Taylor

A gripping and erotically charged thriller pits Niema Burdock against CIA operations specialist John Medina--a man she blames for her husband's death--when they are forced to work together to infiltrate an international terrorist ring.

Simon and Schuster
In six New York Times bestsellers, including her smashing hardcover debut Now You See Her, Linda Howard has seamlessly melded thrilling sensuality and heart-pounding dramatic tension. Now she brings back the elusive hero who first appeared in her acclaimed page-turner Kill and Tell -- in a new blockbuster that is part suspense, part passion, and pure Linda Howard.
No one can get close to John Medina, the CIA's legendary Black Ops specialist who works in the shadows of the government's deadliest missions. He is a virtual invisible man, with no friends, many enemies, and a cloud of suspicion surrounding the death of his wife. And no one knows the dangers better than Niema Burdock. A sharp, steely nerved communications expert, Niema and her husband, Dallas, worked side by side with Medina on an explosive mission that went tragically wrong.
She could hear it all play out, horribly, on the radio: Dallas set off the detonators at John Medina's command -- and found himself trapped in the crossfire. In a shattering blast, Niema's hope and her love were destroyed...
Now Niema has withdrawn to a quiet Intelligence position, and a safe -- if predictable -- existence that has helped her heal her scars from five years ago. And she never planned to see Medina again.
But now John Medina needs her...
A French arms dealer is supplying international terrorist units, and John Medina must infiltrate his compound and crack the deadly ring. But only Niema can plant the undetectable bugs needed to nail the wary and well-connected dealer -- a feat that begins by going undercover and winning his trust. Working her way into his glamorous world of embassy galas and exclusive parties, Niema steps carefully across a minefield of intimate secrets, luring the Frenchman while inviting disaster with every subtle and seductive play. But when their careful strategy begins to crack, Niema and John take flight in a strange land -- and find their partnership sparking with an erotically charged, unquenchable electricity. In a world of deception, one thing is clear: John Medina has once again set Niema on a freefall into danger and desire -- and one can't exist without the other.

I read this story back in 1999 but did not remember much of it so I did a re-read. There was no stopping the roller coaster of emotion ,and sexual tension between Niema and John. The two secondary characters seem very interesting also. I wish they had more scenes.

Liked this book a lot. Good love story between two adults who have a lot of mental and physical attraction between them. The male love interest isn't overly alpha and is honest with himself about the depth of his feelings. I liked the plot a lot too - not completely unbelievable...except towards the end, where they seem to say, "okay, we just escaped our need to hide out anymore, lets go shopping!"
