Series: Safeguard #1
Published by Carina Press Genres: Contemporary, Suspense
Piper J. Drake’s first Safeguard novel is a fast-paced suspenseful adventure. From their first meeting Maylin Cheng and Gabriel Diaz have the kind of sparks that make your toes curl. Their attraction is buoyed by the intense international intrigue surrounding the disappearance of Maylin’s sister. Gabriel believes he’s better off distancing himself from any kind of emotional entanglements but he can’t help but tangle his emotions with Maylin. As a fierce protector, Maylin’s situation sets off every one of Gabriel’s instincts. Gabriel is cemented as an Alpha hero as he vows to find Maylin’s sister and keep her safe in the process.
As a professional woman Maylin is used to taking care of her business, herself and her sister An-mei. The fact that her sister has disappeared in China and she cannot automatically fix it is killing her. Appealing to the man from The Centurion Corporation was her last idea and a bad one as she was severely shot down. However, things change swiftly in this exciting novel and Maylin soon finds herself in the safe clutches of Mr. Gabriel Diaz but can she trust him with her sister’s safety and her heart?
I am a huge fan of suspense and Hidden Impact is full of it! I could not put this romance down! Gabriel and Maylin make for the perfect hero and heroine. Ms. Drake creates the perfect storm of cloak and dagger fervor making Hidden Impact one hell of a page-turner. I can’t decide which is better the kidnapping plot line or the sexy, sweet romance. All I know for sure is that meshed together they make for one thrilling romantic read. Count me in for the next Safeguard novel!
