Sela and Marlena, both agents with ACRO are sent deep into the Amazon jungle on a mission to find a strange creature that seems to have an appetite for blood. Sela has a special gift. She can read people’s minds when she makes love to them. When they arrive, they are purposely captured by a team who are there to capture the creature. They find out that they also have a man who survived an attack. Marlena bonds with Chance. A man who was ravaged by the creature but who miraculously survived. He has also been changed because of his encounter. Sela is immediately attracted to Logan, the leader of the team. He harbors his own secrets. Together, they have to capture the creature and ward off the attacks of an enemy organization who is trying to use the creature for their own evil ends.

This was an exciting read that I just couldn’t put down for a minute, thus it was read in one sitting. The backdrop of the Amazon jungle was done very realistically, and I could almost hear the mosquito’s buzzing around my head! Like Sela, I am not a tropical jungle person. A few references to X-Men will give you the gist of this story. Both agencies, the good guys and the bad guys, have people with extraordinary talents. This story reached me on all levels. A plot that held me captive, romance that was hot and emotional and dialogue that was snappy and amusing made for an intense read. There were issues of trust to be ironed out, the bad guys to get rid of and there was also a secondary plot with Annika and Creed and some deep emotional issues that they had to deal with. I haven’t read a story in this series before, but you can bet I am off to catch up with the other books.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
