Against All Odds by Irene Hannon


Her life is in danger--and so is his heart.

For FBI Hostage Rescue Team member Evan Cooper and his partner, dignitary protection duty should have been a piece of cake. Unfortunately, beautiful but determined Monica Callahan isn't making it easy. Estranged from her diplomat father--who is involved in a sensitive hostage situation in the Middle East--she refuses to be intimidated by a related terrorist threat back in the States. That is, until a chilling warning convinces her that the danger is very real--and escalating.

As Coop and his partner do their best to keep her safe, the threat against Monica is rising. And with every second that ticks by, Coop knows that the odds of saving the only woman who has ever breached the walls around his heart are dropping. After all, terrorists aren't known for their patience--or their mercy.

My Take:~

Nothing like a great romantic suspense novel to engage and delight and Irene Hannon does it with ease! Coop is the quintessential emotionally reserved hero who finds his heart breached by the women he is charged with protecting. Irene has perfected the dialogue between Coop and Monica as the sparks fly. Well drawn bad guys, a dysfunctional relationship between Monica and her diplomat father
and witty male banter between Coop and his partner Mark add intensity and levity in equal measure in this rapid paced, well written romance. Irene has garnered herself another faithful reader with Against All Odds and I am eagerly awaiting Mark's story, An Eye For An Eye, releasing in August, 2009.

Just finished it last night! What a great story. I ended up being rather late into bed because I just HAD to finish it. Ok, so when does the next one come out?

Irene really has made the jump from plain romance to suspense really well.

I won this book in the recent Winter Warmup Giveaway - and I LOVED it. It was a real page-turner. I really have to learn not to start new books on a weeknight. It makes it so hard to get up for work the next day when I finish the book at 2am!
