Never Turn Your Back…

Never Reveal Your Name…

Never Surrender Your Heart…

Madison Sinclair is a smart-mouthed photographer that enjoys the simple things in life. Recently landing a job at one of Manhattan’s top imaging companies, she works hard to prove herself but often falls short of the mark. Taking pictures of the New York scenery, relaxing at home with a glass of wine, and caring for her stray cat is usually the highlight of her day. Nice, quiet, simple. It’s the perfect life. But when her best friend cons her into covering a charity event for a multi-millionaire, Madison’s life suddenly becomes anything but simple as she finds herself in a constant race for survival. There is nowhere she can turn, no one she can trust.

Seth Reynolds has been in the game a long time. He knows how to get in, get a job done, and get out with no complications and no witnesses. The constant stress of the job is beginning to take its toll but he is not a man that gives up easily. Trained to be cold and heartless, he is committed to follow through with this mission no matter what. Racing against an impossible time table, everything is in place to take out the madman intent on destroying New York City. But when the naïve Madison Sinclair stumbles into his world, all of his carefully laid plans go to hell.

Determined to do what is right at all costs, Seth must choose between the rules he’s lived by his entire life or saving Madison from a fate worse than death. If he follows orders, he will be an unsung hero, saving millions of innocent people. But if he risks his own life for Madison’s, the entire city will be in jeopardy. The choice should be easy. Risk one to save many. That’s the

unbreakable code of The Perfect Order. But now, without even trying, Madison has gotten under his skin and inside his heart. With the fate of the city resting in his hands, how he can do the right thing when he no longer knows what that is?

Angel in the Shadows is a sexy and intriguing mix filled to the brim with mystery, deception, and suspense that will appeal to mainstream readers, hopeless romantics, and anyone that enjoys reading a good story.

This is my first experience with this author and it was a good one too.
Maddison is a photographer who gets caught up in the dark world of the rich and spoilt and dangerous. She is an innocent bystander who goes on an adventure she could have done without.
Seth is involved in this dark world but isn’t quite as he seems, they both struggle to even get on together-at first!
This is a fast paced story throughout most of it, why I gave it this rating as it was a little disappointing when it seemed slower or even stretched out a bit. The action in this book is varied and at time nail biting! The main characters are passionate, strong and resilient and take a lot of beating- both physically and verbally. The scenes where it was violent are written well with no unnecessary brutality.
I enjoyed the small twists in the plot as well as the general suspense storyline.
