Caterina Shaw's days are numbered. Her only chance for survival is a highly experimental gene treatment-a risk she willingly takes. But now Caterina barely recognizes herself. She has new, terrifying powers, an exotic, arresting body-and she's been accused of a savage murder, sending her on the run.
Mick Carrera is a mercenary and an expert at capturing elusive, clever prey. Yet the woman he's hunting down is far from the vicious killer he's been told to expect: Caterina is wounded, vulnerable, and a startling mystery of medical science. Even more, she's a beautiful woman whose innocent sensuality tempts Mick to show her exactly how thrilling pleasure can be. The heat that builds between them is irresistible, but surrendering to it could kill them both . . . for a dangerous group is plotting its next move using Caterina as its deadly pawn.
Terminal illness leads gifted musician Caterina Shaw to seek radical treatment that turns her superhuman in this uneven romantic suspense from paranormal and category romance author Pineiro (Honor Calls). Dr. Raymond Edwards saves Caterina's life but then traps her and continues experimenting on her with genes and hallucinogens. Out of control and desperate, Caterina escapes, only to fall into the arms of Mick Carerra, an attractive Mexican mercenary hired to find and dispose of her. Her beauty awakens his long-throttled emotions, and instead of collecting the bounty, Mick defies Edwards while his sister provides the medical treatment Caterina needs to detox and his affectionate family helps to heal her heart. The premise is intriguing, but Pineiro never fully develops it, and too many inconsistencies distract the reader from both romance and science. (Nov.)
