Trace of Fever

Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor bk 2

Lori Foster

Caught in the crossfire of vengeance and desire…

Undercover mercenary Trace Rivers loves the adrenaline rush of a well-planned mission. First he’ll earn the trust of corrupt businessman Murray Coburn, then gather the proof he needs to shut down the man’s dirty smuggling operation. It’s a perfect scheme—until Coburn’s long-lost daughter saunters in with her own deadly plan for revenge.

With a smile like an angel and fire in her eyes, Priscilla Patterson isn’t who she seems to be. But neither is the gorgeous bodyguard who ignites all her senses. Joining forces to plot Coburn’s downfall, Priss and Trace must fight the undeniable heat between them. For one wrong move, one lingering embrace will expose them to the wrath of a merciless opponent….

Because of how When You Dare starts I knew that Trace’s book would be interesting,,,and it is.

Trace is on a mission to completely destroy those that prey on women, especially human traffickers. He has placed himself in the perfect position to take down one of the worst  criminals in his mind. What he didn’t count on was a little slip of a thing showing up and putting a crimp in his plans. As soon as Priss appears claiming to be the daughter of the criminal he is determined to take down he knows that she is not what she seems and that if he isn’t careful she will do more than just derail his case but also his life.

Priss is on a mission to destroy the man that destroyed her mom and in turn destroyed her life. She thought that she has prepared for everything, that is until she walks in and sees Trace. She wasn’t expecting him, and his determination to stop her.

For the most part I really liked this story. Trace is the perfect hero in this story. There wasn’t much about him that I didn’t like. His need to protect Priss and stop her from ruining his case, as well as his need to make her his was completely believable. What I couldn’t understand was how he could be attracted to someone like her.

Priss however drove me nuts from the moment that she appeared. There was very little about her character that I liked. She refused to listen to Trace and constantly put herself in a position that made Trace have to divide his attention from the danger and protecting her.

There was one scene with Priss that I loved and that involved Jackson…and a….well I will let you discover that scene I’ll just tell you that Trace wasn’t very happy about it.

Despite my feelings toward Priss I really liked this story, mainly because of Trace and Jackson and their interactions with each other.

One of the tings that I really about this series is the very serious topic that is raised and that of the female sex slave trade. Lori really pulls no punches when it comes to what happened to Priss, and what happens to the women.

    Mmm sounds like a good series to read. I just read a review about Pamela Clare, she also writes romantic suspense with this topic.
