Malicious Intent (Defend and Protect, #2) by Lynn H. Blackburn

 


Dr. Ivy Collins, founder and CEO of Hedera, Inc., is ready to begin clinical trials of her company's cutting-edge prosthetic. Her work has been heralded by government, medical, and advocacy groups and everyone hopes the device will be a success. Well, almost everyone. Someone is trying to sabotage Hedera and the launch, but to what purpose--and how far will they go to get what they want? 

Meanwhile, U.S. Secret Service Agent Gil Dixon can't believe he's finally been reunited with Ivy, his childhood best friend. Now that he's found her again, Gil intends to spend the rest of his life with her. But it will take all his skill to uncover the truth in time to save Ivy's life's work, her own life, and the innocent lives caught in the crossfire.

Perfectly balancing chilling suspense and uplifting romance, award-winning author Lynn H. Blackburn delivers a story of revenge, greed, and overcoming that you won't want to put down no matter how late it gets.

My Review


 
This is the second book in the Defend and Protect series, with some recurring characters, but you can read it alone!

Circumstances bring childhood sweethearts back together, they lost contact with each other by actions not their own. U.S. Secret Service Agent Gil Dixon ends up at the right place at the right time, and Dr. Ivy Collins is now in reunited with the boy who stole her heart, all grown up after fifteen years!

There are a lot of twist and turns here to get to the answers, but when I suspected whom was responsible, I wasn't really wrong, but I wasn't exactly right.

This is a great suspense page turner, with a bit of sweet romance thrown in!

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Revell, and was not required to give a positive review.
