About Book Hot Zone by Catherine Mann Pdf Free

“Catherine Mann delivers an emotional and action-packed story that leaves you wanting more.” — Sherrilyn Kenyon, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author

HE’LL TAKE ANY MISSION, THE RISKIER THE BETTER…

The haunted eyes of pararescueman Hugh Franco should have been her first clue that deep pain roiled beneath the surface. But if Amelia couldn’t see the damage, how could she be expected to know he’d break her heart?

SHE’LL PROVE TO BE HIS BIGGEST RISK YET…

Amelia Bailey’s not the kind of girl who usually needs rescuing…but there are anything but usual circumstances.

“A powerful, passionate read not to be missed!” — Lori Foster, New York Times Bestselling Author of When You Dare

USA Today bestselling author Catherine Mann delivers another hero from the Air Force’s celebrated Pararescue Jumpers-“The PJs”- an ultra-elite force who put themselves at extreme risk in the most dangerous emergancies so that others may live. A sizzling thrill-rise of action and attraction, Hot Zone will leave your pulse pounding. 

This story takes place in the Bahamas, where the heroine, divorced, pretty blue-eyed blonde lawyer Amelia, has traveled to help her brother Aiden (a doctor) and his Bahamian wife Lisabeth (a nurse) adopt a baby boy. Amelia gets trapped underneath the rubble of their hotel (with baby Joshua) when a massive earthquake hits.

The hero, dark-haired, green eyed Master Sgt. Hugh Franco (who we first met in Cover Me) is an Air Force pararescueman who has come to the island with his team to help in the search and rescue. He heroically crawls into the rubble to save Amelia and her 13 month old nephew, and their relationship starts there.

In Hot Zone, both the hero and heroine have issues about their pasts. County prosecutor Amelia is a recent divorcee (because of a cheating husband) and longs for a family of her own one day. Hugh, who has been living life on the edge (taking on the most dangerous assignments) and never having a relationship that lasts more than one night, meets his match in Amelia. (view spoiler) When he meets Amelia, something about her spirit touches him, and he finds it hard to walk away. Things get physical, and Hugh is stunned when Amelia (running from her feelings) chooses to walk away. But then they get caught up in an illegal adoption/human trafficking ring when someone (the story’s villain, known as ‘the Guardian’) kidnaps Amelia and baby Joshua. It takes all Hugh’s bravery and training and a lot of fierce determination on Amelia’s part to escape the kidnappers, reunite Joshua with his adoptive parents, and bring down the illegal adoption ring.

Catherine Mann not only gives us Hugh/Amelia as the main romance, but also gives us a secondary romance with her doctor brother (who is harboring a secret that’s eating him alive and is the reason why he doesn’t want a biological child) and his wife. Plenty of details here and a nice connection between husband and wife when Lisabeth reveals her own secret to Aiden…and then he finally opens up to her. Some good stuff here.

We also get plenty of background on Major Liam McCabe and the set up on what will probably be his story next (Protector) when he meets (and tries to romance) a somewhat reluctant Rachel Flores (a search-and-rescue dog handler). I really liked Liam–he’s charming, funny, and it seems like a hopeless romantic. I’m looking forward to his story.

As I read all the detail CM provided about the earthquake (the destruction, the looters, the lawlessness, the relief workers, the rescues) it reminded me a little of what was seen on the news from Haiti. Catherine Mann brings everything to life in vivid detail and manages to educate the reader about what the rescue workers have to endure too. You can tell she did her homework on this, and I appreciate how authentic and believable everything sounded.

The romance? Just a few scenes between Hugh and Amelia (three, I think) but they were plenty steamy, but not erotic. It’s kind of hard to get romantic when you’re in the middle of an earthquake and its aftershocks, but these two did find a way–most memorably in a claw foot tub…

So this series is off to a great start! I liked ‘Brick’ from .Cover Me, adored Hugh Franco (such a sad backstory and such a caring, sensitive hero) and I already love what I know about Liam McCabe. Amelia was a feisty, brave heroine and I was rooting for things to work out for her and Hugh. I loved the sweet little epilogue we get at the end (for a moment, my heart skipped a beat thinking there wouldn’t be one!) I think Catherine Mann is onto something with this series about heroic pararescuemen, and I’m glad to see them get their due. 5 stars

*Although part of a series, this book can be read as a stand alone*
