T-FLAC is back in an exciting action-adventure romance filled with danger, subterfuge and steamy, red-hot attraction.
NO MEMORY OF HIS PAST
Powerful cartel leader Sin Diaz lives a dangerous life filled with secrets and lies, and surrounded by people who claim to have known him all his life. Yet flashes of another life, totally unrelated to the jungles of Cosio, hang tantalizingly on the edges of his memory. He'll trust no one until he recalls his true past.
NO DREAMS OF A FUTURE
T-FLAC operative Riva Rimaldi's mission is simple. Go undercover, learn terrorist Escobar Maza's agenda, then kill him. But when the helicopter she's on crashes deep in the jungle of the small, volatile country of Cosio, she finds herself in the wrong hands. Is the sexy as hell leader of the ANSL, Sin Diaz, the enemy of her enemy, worse than Maza himself? Or is he someone entirely different than his reputation – and will he become her lover?
TOGETHER THEY HOLD THE KEY
Sin and Riva must work together to stop a madman who will go to any lengths to attain his terrifying goal. But can they unravel the truth in time? The timer is ticking.
What they don’t know could get them killed.
T-FLAC operative Riva Rimaldi had a clear mental image of the chopper she was on: It was hurtling toward the ground, following a fiery explosion.
Five out of the six people on board would die. She was sorry she couldn't forewarn the two operatives accompanying her of their impending death. The warning would be useless and come too late. That was the bitch of her ability. When she received a vision, she knew precisely what would happen, but not precisely when. Even more of a bitch was that she while she could see the future, her ability to modify it was typically nonexistent. Riva had to let the nightmares that ran through her brain play out in real life.
She saw it as the pilot did. A bright, swiftly moving light headed up at them from the trees below.
“SAM.” Surface-to-air missile? Out here? In the middle of nowhere?
Curling into a ball around her duffel, one hand wrapped in the backpack’s straps, Riva braced for impact. She might as well kiss her ass good-bye. Despite what she'd seen, no one would survive the hit, and if she did, she’d wish she hadn't.
Between one heartbeat and the next, the missile slammed the tail with a loud, fiery explosion, spinning what was left of the chopper end over end. A blast furnace of heat engulfed her as she was thrown around the cabin like a rag doll. Everything gyrated like a kaleidoscope around her, as if she were separate from the event. In the split second when rational thought was possible, Riva knew she couldn't jump out. Even if she had a chute, which she didn't, she'd be sliced and diced like chopped salad by the swiftly spinning blades if she attempted it.
Primal fear set in and all she could do was scream as she, and what was left of the burning chopper, hurtled uncontrollably toward the trees.
Praise for the Book
"Gideon by Cherry Adair is a fast paced, action packed Romantic Suspense. #2 in the Lodestone series, but can be read as a stand alone. I would suggest reading #1 Hush, just because this is an outstanding series, thus far. Another, T-FLAC novel. Thrills and chills, twists and turns, as well, passion, suspense, and romance. A roller-coaster of a thrill ride from beginning to the end and beyond. Well written with tantalizing scenes, vivid descriptions, charismatic characters, adventure, action, and of course a track through the Jungle with an enemy on their trail (the reader can almost taste, feel and smell the Jungle). [...] Another hit from Cherry Adair. Highly recommended for Romantic Suspense fans and anyone who enjoys a thrill-ride packed full of action, romance and love. Any more heat and action and the pages would be on fire. Simply, breathless and priceless!! If you only pick up one Romantic Suspense, this month, let it be Gideon, you will not regret your choice!" ~ April A. Renn

[...] This book keeps you wondering from start to finish just who each character really is and what type of person they are. Good or bad? Good question. You can't stop reading because you just HAVE TO KNOW!!! I have to say that the whole book was fascinating, extremely fast-paced and leaving you hanging onto every single page until the last!! DO NOT MISS THIS BOOK!!!!! You won't be sorry you read it. You'll think it's one of the best books you have ever read. I did!" ~ Cindy Reifel
"What a ride ... this book, that I have waited what feels like forever for ... DID NOT DISAPPOINT. I LOVED! Gideon kicked ass and what is even better ... so did Riva. I am so glad that she was so badass. It was perfect. I could not put it down. And I tried because I did not want it to end. I would get up ... pace then sit down and dive right back in. What an action packed thrill ride! If you love action, adventure, romance, HOT sexy time, and a kick ass hero and heroine. RUN!!!!! You will be so glad you did." ~ Maureen
"Edge-of-your-seat action packed suspense with repetitive running, shooting, killing, and wild monkey sex. A familiar and successful Adair formula. A race through the jungle against the enemy and nature. An emotional roller coaster as well. I loved this book! Action, adventure and strong sexual chemistry. And of course, an HEA." ~ Madison Warner Fairbanks
