When a mission to recover over 300 rifles stolen from ATF storage goes to pieces while agent Abby Wells listens from a mobile communication center, she can't help but rush out into the action to see if she's needed.   Abby was formerly active in the field herself, until an earlier mission went wrong and left her emotionally scarred.   Someone within the agency is assisting the criminals, and as soon as Conner Hawk grabs her and forces her to go on the run with him, Abby thinks that he is the rogue agent and she is determined to escape him.   When Hawk tells her that he suspects their director is involved, Abby is disbelieving, as the man who has raised Hawk's suspicions is the very person who rescued her several months before. Almost as quickly as Abby is convinced that Hawk's suspicions are true, the two have an incredibly passionate encounter that leaves both of them a little confused, yet wanting much more.


Hawk realizes that he has deeply frightened Abby by kidnapping her and that he's asking a lot in wanting her to believe him.   He realizes that Abby's life is also in danger and that the race is on to find the true bad guy while fighting to keep them both alive.   Hawk has always been attracted to Abby, but never dreamed that the two of them would actually get together.   Hawk now needs to get Abby to drop her defenses so she can open herself up and accept his feelings for her.

 

Jill Shalvis has penned a fast-moving romantic suspense with intriguing lead characters that readers will quickly become attached to.   Secondary characters are equally important and a sensual side romance is an added bonus.   SHADOW HAWK is a bit of a change from the humorous, quirky characters that Jill Shalvis often gives her readers.   Abby and Hawk aren't the light and fluffy characters you might associate with a Blaze.   Each is dealing with serious issues; current dangers for Hawk and indescribable horrors in Abby's past, give this book the bones of an excellent suspense.
