Riley Devane is an innocent young woman with a lucrative job as an architect. While returning home from a business meeting, she’s drugged and kidnaped by a madman as an act of revenge against her father. The FBI claims a lack of evidence and sets the case aside assuming that she ran off. Fortunately Riley’s godfather is a powerful man with connections and he’s got his suspicions about who would kidnap Riley and why.
Mark Kincade works as a firefighter and government operative. He also dabbles in world finance, which gives him the perfect cover for his long periods of absence. Only a select few know of his ties with the government. It is the President of the United States himself who requests Mark’s assistance in finding Riley.
Mark had once been held captive and tortured by South American terrorists for two years thanks in part to Graham Cross. Cross is the very same man now believed to be responsible for Riley’s disappearance. From the moment he sees Riley’s picture in the files regarding her case there’s a bond formed between them. He can sense that she’s still alive and when she needs a reason to keep living she hears his voice telling her that he’s coming for her. Falling in love with the man sent to rescue her is easy for Riley, but Graham Cross is a force to be reckoned with and threatens any chance they have at happiness.
Christy Poff is a whiz at writing intense sexy suspense novels. AT CROSS ENDS contains a bad guy who truly epitomizes the word evil and two people who have survived his inexcusable cruelty. Riley and Mark are strong-willed characters who will earn the readers respect as you learn about the injustices they suffer at Cross’s hands. Now that being said, I couldn’t help but giggle at Mark’s diabolical way of cutting Cross down to size or the poetic justice that occurs toward end of the story. I took great pleasure in each moment of this story and I hope if you pick up a copy that you’ll enjoy it just as much as I did.
