This story centers on Troy Donovan: the Robin Hood Hacker. When he was 15 he hacked into the DoD and started exposing corruption. Instead of sending him to juvie, the judge sent him to military reform school where he met the other members of the Alpha Brotherhood. His current assignment is to help identify a dangerous thief and money-launderer at a glitzy Chicago party. At the same time, Hillary Wright is trying to clear her name as the scheme involved a former boyfriend. The only way to convince the CIA that she had nothing to do with the scam, Hillary must identify a man that few have ever laid eyes on. Troy has the advantage of knowing they are both there for the same reason.

Determined to protect Hillary from the unnamed danger, Troy finds ways to get close to Hillary. First he meets her on the plane to Chicago. Then he “buys” himself at the bachelor auction he is roped into participating in, only to ask her to be his date for the weekend.

Hillary is convinced that she only falls for bad boys. Her latest attraction to Troy only reinforces this idea in her head. Initially resistant to Troy’s attempts she finally convinces herself to just enjoy the adventure.

The action takes them from Chicago to Costa Rica with brief glimpses of France and Monte Carlo. As with all Desires it moves quickly. However, Ms. Mann managed to pack a lot of story between the covers.

I love sprawling interconnected stories like this. We get brief glimpses back to the Landis / Renshaw families and hints of what might be to come with the rest of the Alpha Brotherhood. I thoroughly enjoyed this one and can’t wait for the next.
