Review: Trace of Fever by Lori Foster

Trace of Fever is the second book in the Edge of Honor series by Lori Foster and a Romance from HQN.

Book Blurb:

Caught In The Crossfire Of Vengeance And Desire

Undercover mercenary Trace Rivers loves the adrenaline rush of a well-planned mission. First he'll earn the trust of corrupt businessman Murray Coburn, then gather the proof he needs to shut down the man's dirty smuggling operation. It's a perfect scheme - until Coburn's long-lost daughter saunters in with her own deadly plan for revenge.

With a smile like an angel and fire in her eyes, Priscilla Patterson isn't who she seems to be. But neither is the gorgeous bodyguard who ignites all her senses. Joining forces to plot Coburn's downfall, Priss and Trace must fight the undeniable heat between them. For one wrong move, one lingering embrace, will expose them to the wrath of a merciless opponent..

My thoughts:

Trace Rivers has seen the corruption that simmers underneath so-called businessman Murray Coburn - and he is completely disgusted by what he sees.  Knowing that the only way to stop Coburn’s smuggling operation is by going inside, Trace infiltrates Coburn’s organization on the pretense of a body guard/gun for hire.

When Priscilla Patterson shows up claiming to be Coburn’s daughter Trace knows that she is capable of derailing his well-planned mission - and his concentration.  

Sparks fly between these two - but before they can do anything about it - they have to shut Coburn down cold.  And Coburn is not going down without a fight.

Trace of Fever is the first book I have read by Lori Foster and I really enjoyed it.  Though the second book in the series, I had no trouble reading it as a stand alone - but I definitely want to go back and read the first one, When You Dare.

Trace is the perfect alpha male - but Priss is no damsel in distress, she is willing and able to kick some a$$ if needed - and I love the equal pairing.

I give Trace of Fever 4 out of 5 stars.
