About the book:
Children's clothing designer Mary Wade Kimball's soft spot for animals leads to a hostage situation when she spots a briar- entangled kitten in front of an abandoned house. Beaten, bound, and gagged by the two thugs inside, Mary Wade loses hope for escape when a third villain returns with supplies.
Discovering the kidnapped woman ratchets the complications for undercover agent Brett Davis. Weighing the difference of ruining his three months' investigation against the woman's safety, Brett forsakes his mission and helps her escape, the bent-on-revenge brutes following behind.
When Mary Wade's safety is threatened once more, Brett rescues her again. This time, her personal safety isn't the only thing in jeopardy. Her heart is endangered as well.

I really enjoyed this book from the start to the end! Mary Wade is such a great main character and one that was so easy to connect with. Mary Wade is following her own path in life, following her heart and what she believes God's will is; however this does not really match up with her parents' expectations for her. Finding herself in a tricky situation she has to rely on Brett to help her, which goes against her independent spirit. Brett stumbles upon Mary Wade and while rescuing her finds himself also becoming more entangled in her life. This story is full of action, romance and amazing characters that you would want to meet up with in real-life. This is a nice balance of all of these elements making it a book that is hard to put down once you start reading!
