Josie Tseda was an army helicopter pilot in Afghanistan where she met Conn and Dev. Now Lara and Michaela, two of the Guardians, and Conn and Dev, their mates, are hiding out on the Navajo reservation protected by Josie and her father.
Now that Lara is the head Guardian, she must try to bring all the Guardians together to fight the Hellhounds and find the traitor who is giving away information leading to them. Gabriel Valdez is living in Colombia. Lara asks Josie to fly her helicopter there and bring him back to Arizona. Josie knows the importance of bringing the Guardians together and agrees to find him and return him.
On arriving in Colombia she hires a guide to take her to Gabriel, only the guide brings Gabriel to her. Even after she tells him about her mission and the Hellhounds, he does not trust her. Gabriel has a fight of his own in Colombia, bringing down one of the major drug lords. Hellhounds would just be another group looking to kill him. He believes Josie might be a Hellhound herself and is determined to get information from her. After she knifes him in the chest, he is convinced he has a better chance getting what he wants using seduction.
Little by little, Josie and Gabriel get close and his distrust begins to wane. Unfortunately, the drug cartel is not far away from them and a fight ensues. On his mother’s deathbed, Gabriel swore he would bring down the cartel. However, his first obligation is to the Guardians. Only then will he try to fulfill his promise to his mother.
Unlike the first two books Hellhounds are not the issue; the issue is a drug kingpin and his men. Josie is such a spunky character, I instantly fell in love with her. Gabriel, on the other hand, is a Latin lover and is hot, hot, hot. This book has sex, romance, secrets, and surprises. I loved this book and look forward to more.
