Chased by her criminal father, Katya Dalca runs to New Orleans and straight into the arms of Luke Hunter. She succumbs to Luke’s potent sexuality. He not only steals her breath, he steals her heart and the only leverage she has against her father. She is left with no choice except to pick up the pieces and rebuild her life alone. Undercover DEA agent Luke Hunter thought his assignment—to recover a stolen flash drive to gain the trust of the Russian mob—was like any other. But his target brings him to his knees, and after one taste of her intoxicating beauty, he's in too deep. Doing his job means walking away, leaving his heart behind with nothing but a promise to reunite. It's a promise he can't keep. When Katya's past comes back, her world turns upside down, her only hope is the one man she is most vulnerable to—Luke.
I thought the story has great potential. Luke and Katya have an interesting night together, and then he’s gone. With only a promise to meet a year later, she picks up the pieces and goes into hiding. Luke must finish his mission and that is to take down Katya’s father at all cost. He swears he will come back for Katya, no matter how long it takes. Their story drags out for six long years, however the actual book jumps into the future so quickly it is confusing at times. When they finally reunite I feel the story ran very slow and became a little boring at times. The story line has amazing promise, as well as the characters, but the pace really needs to be addressed. I hope to read more from this author in the future!
