Some things a woman can never prepare for. Like being locked inside her own home with a maniac who insists that she inject him with a highly unstable virus and help him liberate a planet. Oh, but Amelia's not a hostage, she's an employee. Bad enough he's so eager to die, but he keeps asking for far more than her doctor-patient responsibilities. And the longer Amelia spends with him, the more reasonable it all seems. The trouble comes when reason starts to fail her.
All Gabriel has left to lose is his life, which he will gladly give up if he can take his enemies down with him. To do that, he'll need an advantage only Dr. Chase can provide—if she agrees. With the face of an angel and the devil's hand on her shoulder, every rumor about the female has turned out to be true, and Gabriel soon finds there is something he desires even more than his long overdue revenge. But the wheels have already been set in motion and there may be far more at stake than Gabriel ever realized . . .

On a path for revenge, Gabriel sets out to persuade Dr. Chase to give him an advantage only she can provide, even if it costs him his life. But once the wheels have already been set in motion, he sees there is more at stake than he realized in this mesmerizing futuristic romance.
This fast paced plot keeps the reader hovering on the edge of anticipation with lots of suspense, drama, and passion. The author brings the story to life with well written scenes and details that capture the imagination and the strong compelling characters draw the reader deeper into the story and ensure that the reader can't put the book down.
Both characters have emotionally disturbing pasts that shape their present, both have reasons for what they've done and what they are doing, and both find themselves passionately drawn to the other even though they know that the relationship would be doomed. Upon first meeting, and quite an unconventional one I might add, sparks fly in every direction and when they finally give in to their heated passion, the sex scenes are intensely hot and steamy and the reader can't help but get caught up in all the drama and excitement that surround the couple and their relationship.
Spine tingling tension builds throughout the story as the danger escalates and Amelia and Gabriel are used as pawns against each other in a mad woman's game. To be perfectly honest, I was unsure about the book at the beginning but I am certainly glad that I stuck it out and the author has certainly caught my interest. This is the first book that I've read in this series--and I will be remedying that--and I found it to be enjoyable, entertaining and an intriguing blend of past history in a unique future setting that grabs the reader's interest. I can't wait to read the next one.
