|Plot Summary of The Scarlet Empress|
Love Spell, Dec 2004, 6.99
In 2006 Captain Bree “Banzai” Maguire and her wingman Cameron “Scarlet” Tucker fly a sortie over North Korean when both of their F-16 jets are shot down by surface to air missiles. A fanatical scientist apparently not associated with the North Korean government captures both American aviators. He injects the duo with some sort of experimental elixir (see THE LEGEND OF BANZAI MAGUIRE).
In 2176 Cam is assumed dead along with Banzai awakens from her hundred-seventy years plus sleep. She learns that Banzai also survives and has been leading a freedom fighting revolt alongside a SEAL, but that her buddy is being held prisoner. She plans to rescue her pal, but needs help from her “host” Kingdom of Asia ruler Prince Kyber, who is unhappy about losing Banzai to SEAL Commander Tyler Armstrong and refuses to make the same mistake twice with Cam.
