Ruby Macintosh, stepdaughter of Northern Europe's biggest crime lord, is blackmailed by Lucas Bendtsen, head of Elskov's CIA equivalent, the Silver Knights, to get him into her stepfather's island and organization to stop a gun deal from going down. Their pretend engagement is to save her brother who the Silver Knights have in custody. When they get to the island, her stepfather suggests they get married on the island. They agree but Ruby has one request of Lucas--that her brother be brought to the island for the ceremony. Now Lucas is up the creek. Truths come out and Ruby and Lucas try to keep from falling in love. But it may be too late.
I loved this book. I loved Ruby and Lucas. She is feisty and strong. She won't take anyone's garbage. Lucas is stubborn but against Ruby he has no safety net. I was surprised by both Ruby's mother and brother. The story is hot! Both Lucas and Ruby have a lot to lose if this fails. Both need to decide what is more important--the mission or each other. What an ending!
I'll be looking the the other books in the series.
