Narrow Escape (Love Inspired Suspense) by Camy Tang
What it's about (from publisher Love Inspired): Arissa Tiong and her three-year-old niece are snatched off the street by members of a notorious drug gang. Having lost her police officer brother to a drug bust gone bad, Arissa knows the danger she's in. But she has no idea why they want her. Desperate to protect the little girl, Arissa escapes and runs straight to Nathan Fischer. She knows the handsome, weary former narcotics cop hasn't told her everything about the night that ended her brother's life and Nathan's career. But he's all that stands between her and dangerous thugs who are after something she doesn't even know she has.
Why you should read it: I came across this title almost on accident and … what a find! This novel is chock full of action: car chases, ransacked houses, gangsters, crooked cops, and, of course, sizzling romantic magnetism.
Arissa and Nathan fell for each other years ago, but back then pursuing romance was off-limits for too many reasons to count. Now most of those issues have been resolved, but they've left behind the tragic sort of baggage that could sabotage a relationship. Still, neither Nathan nor Arissa can deny that their attraction is stronger than ever. Forced to rush from disaster to bigger disaster, they both try to deny their feelings while working hard to stay alive long enough to solve a mystery that could reveal Arissa's much-loved brother as a villain … or a hero … or both.
Fans of Tang's Protection for Hire series will enjoy the pace and plotting of this book and new readers are sure to become Camy Tang devotees. Hard to put down, this book will help keep your pulse pumping and your fingers flipping pages until the final, satisfying conclusion.
