Two strangers risk their lives for retribution in New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Lori Foster’s intense, edgy and scorching A PERFECT STORM (HQN Books; April 2012; $7.99 U.S./$9.99 CAN.). Spencer Lark and Arizona Storm are thrown together as partners in revenge for the fourth and final book of the Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor series. Following in the footsteps of WHEN YOU DARE, TRACE OF FEVER and SAVOR THE DANGER, A PERFECT STORM features the smoldering mercenaries who will do anything to protect the innocent–especially when those innocent are the women they love.Here is an excerpt:
Spencer Lark already knows too many secrets about Arizona Storm, including her kidnapping by human traffickers, her harrowing escape and the painful memories she carries from her past. In order to expose a despicable ring of human traffickers—and continue his mission of revenge for his wife’s death—the bounty hunter reluctantly agrees to partner with Arizona on her latest operation. He quickly realizes no amount of training has equipped him to handle her hypnotic blend of fragility and bravery, or for the protective instincts she stirs in him.
Arizona has made it her mission to use herself as bait in an attempt to bring down trafficking rings. It’s a dangerous game for an amateur, even more so with a professional partner as distracting and appealing as Spencer. But as their plan—and their chemistry—shift into high gear, Arizona discovers there’s an even greater risk in surrendering her heart to a hero....
