Heroine who is eight months pregnant, flees a drug lord's compound with an undercover agent (hero) a small village boy and a three-legged puppy.

She literally runs through the jungle with little water and food for a few days (8 months preg). At one point she hits a hornet nest, gets stung more than a dozen times, including both eyes which swell completely shut.

Hero kills a snake for her to eat, and then finds steak sauce in an abandoned building.

At the end she is throwing grenades in between con

For my latest reading binge (between deadlines!), I've been on a Dana Marton kick. She's an author who knows how to write action-packed romantic suspense, and this addition to her SDDU series is no exception.

For those of you who like more steam to your romance, this one might not be for you. However, I found it to be one of the most "romantic" romantic suspense novels I've read in a while. Certainly, the 8-month pregnant heroine doesn't lend herself to sex scenes (although there is one at an app

I like this book so much, that I just finished reading it for the second time. It is a action packed, heart racing kind of book. the suspense was really good. Jase had the need to protect the weak, to stand up for women and kids, it ran deep in his Texas blood. He was deep undercover on a mission. He didn't need any distraction from his mission. He was pretending to be a drug running, so he could gather intel about the drug camps. When he meet Melanie, he wanted to turn his back, but he couldn't ...more
Good book. I liked Melanie and the way she was determined to escape from Don Pedro before she had her baby. She first tried to seduce Jace to get him to help, but then decided to set out on her own. Jace was there undercover to try to get the info that the government needed to shut Pedro down and find out who he was supplying. He didn't need to get involved with rescuing someone that might end up blowing his cover. But when he finds out that a rival drug lord is about to attack, he takes Melanie ...more

So far he hasn't been able to make it happen. Then passing by the hacienda looking for his chance in he spots a figure on the balcony. A woman crying? An American wo ...more

Pregnant and trapped by her dead husbands brother, who just happens to be a drug lord, our heroine will risk it all to save her unborn child. But can she trust this man who works for her enemy to help her escape a fate worse than death? Romance sizzles at every ...more
This story didn't really make me love the two lead characters. The little boy was adorable, but you didn't feel connected to any of the characters. The female lead was a little on the annoying side. She's almost ready to have her baby and she is trying to grow up. Hmm...maybe she should have done that before she got pregnant. The author tried to give you something to connect to the female lead, but it was such a small section, less than a page that I felt more like she was a spoiled child and di ...more

In Marton’s romantic suspense novel, Jase Campbell was deep undercover in a drug lord’s compound when he meets a very pregnant Melanie Key. It doesn’t take much to realize that she needs help escaping a very lethal situation. With courage and strength, the widow joins Jase to face extreme obstacles to reach safety only to find that together they found each other.

Marton's writing is smooth and it's easy to get lost in her story, but I found the 8 month pregnant heroine less than romantic. Probably, just me.
