Review of BOUNTY HUNTER HONOR by Kara Lennox (see her website)
CODE OF THE COBRA
Harlequin Intrigue #853, June, 2005
Rex Bettencourt is the top bounty hunter in the Cobra Agency, but even an all-star needs a break once in a while. Rex is getting ready for a vacation when beautiful Nadia Penn walks into his office. He knows better than to listen to her story, but Rex is a sucker for a pretty face--or a sad story. And Nadia's story is sad indeed--her evil ex-husband, Peter, has kidnapped their child and will steal the girl back to Russia unless scientist Nadia turns over the nanotechnology she's been working on--discoveries so dangerous they could turn the population of Earth into gray ooze.
Rex agrees to help Nadia, but neither expect that their attempts to contact and fool Peter will turn so dangerous--so quickly. But Peter is intent on getting the petro-nano technology that Nadia has invented, no matter what the cost. Finally, Nadia is faced with the choice of losing her daughter forever, or turning over her dangerous secrets. What terror could be worse for any mother? Another terror haunts Rex. Will he be able to shoot to kill if Nadia needs him? As a former marine sniper, Rex still suffers from the horrors of that deadly and dangerous job.
Author Kara Lennox (see more BooksForABuck.com reviews of novels by Lennox) delivers an exciting thriller with a heartwarming romance. Both Nadia and Rex are damaged and afraid to commit, but their shared danger and physical proximity turns simple desire into growing love. The nanotechnology element is straight out of tomorrow's headlines--both in terms of the potential and of the dangers in this exciting scientific field.
