A harrowing trio of murder, romance, and power propel the action forward in this story about little Jenny Waring. In a moment of dire crisis, she did something exceptional, and the authorities want to know how and why she killed three armed men like a seasoned agent. It's Kier McAllister's job to break Jenny Waring--he's asking a lot of questions, and he isn't asking nicely. However much McAllister thinks he's in control, the balance of power is shifting. Jenny's accusing eyes are starting to hold the whole world for him, and that isn't good--not when the people he works for aren't about to leave her alone. Jenny Waring started out as McAllister's job, how can she become his redemption?
In Lucia's off-kilter debut, normal gal Jenny Waring takes extraordinary action in an office-building hostage taking, and manages to kill the three armed men holding her. That attracts the notice of an anonymous government security agency, certain Jenny is working for someone and determined to find out who. When Jenny doesn't break under interrogation, enter specialist Kier McAllister, who takes her to a cabin in Scotland to break her down psychologically. That he begins to believe that she is telling the truth may mean more bad news for Jenny, who has already fallen for her captor, as the agents have plenty of uses for a woman with her native skills. Lucia tries to covers too much ground in this Stockholm syndrome-based bit of romantic suspense, with early twists and turns either simplified or eliminated by the middle chapters. Red herrings further muddy the waters. (June)
