This is the 6th book in the series. The first 3 were about the Raines Brothers. This last set have revolved around ex-military men who who now work for a private-investigator firm.
Sage Dumont works for her grandfather in Houston at Marine Drilling International. She has worked hard to work her way up in the company based on her job performance and not her last name. She thinks she has the perfect job and is engaged to the perfect man. She manages to land a deal to negotiate buying a drilling platform from a Sheik in Saudi Arabia. If she manages to get the deal she is hoping for a promotion to President.
Sage's grandfather knows there could be potential trouble by bringing a Saudi family into Houston. So he hires Atlas Security to help during the negotiation. Jake Cantrell used to be in Special Forces. He is very familiar with Middle Eastern protocols. He wants Jake to help Sage through the negotiations helping with the proper protocols in dealing with the Sheik and offering any protection should it be needed.
Sage isn't happy about having a bodyguard around but recognizes that she doesn't know how to act and speak around the Sheik and doesnt want to offend him or his family that he is also bringing. She also isn't happy about the strong sexual attraction she feels for this big brute of a man, after all she is engaged to a nice man who is what she thinks society would expect her to marry.
Jake is also very attracted to Sage but doesn't mess with engaged women. So he decides he is just going to do his job in teaching Sage what she needs to know for the Sheik's visit and providing protection duty.
Things don't quite go as planned though.. There is a bombing, drug trafficking, internal conflict between the Sheik and his daughter.
The romance between Sage and Jake was hot and didn't develop too soon. I think the author also did a fantastic job of showing the Saudi's customs for both the men and the women.
The best part was finding out she is going to write another 3 books in this series. We got to meet Alex and Sabrina in this book and their book is sure to be full of fireworks between these two.
