Angelina says no until Finn hits her with the one thing she desires in life, information on her unknown mom. Finn shows her a picture of her deceased mom who was married to Victor, the reason he has recruited her. Her Aunt Marian still works for him. As she and “Sharkman” as she calls Finn work together they fall in love, but even if they both desired romance, they must survive Victor and his thugs, and an even deadlier surprising foe.

This is an exhilarating romantic suspense starring two delightful lead protagonists. Though the tale starts slow, the story line is fast-paced once Angelina makes her Montana move. The lead couple is a delightful pair, as both know love interferes with the mission. Her aunt is quite a character and Victor is a strong villain so that the audience obtains a strong intrigue enhanced by love.
