Scarlett is hired as a live-in nurse for Armand Sayer. She is well qualified and quickly assumes her responsibilities. That would all be very simple if Armand was a normal person and not a drug lord recovering from wounds received in an attempt on his life. And if Scarlett was just a nurse and not an agent for Interpol, undercover to gather evidence to prosecute drug dealers. Scarlett is well suited for that also, as her grandfather, a hit man, raised her after her parents are killed.
The story carries on and feelings develop between Scarlett and Armand. Will they discover that Scarlett is an agent? Will Armand or his body guard, George do to her what others are trying to do to them? The story comes to a smashing conclusion when another drug lord decides to remove Scarlett, the Interpol agent, from the story.
This novel is well written. The story moves ahead at a suitable pace. There is often a mystery of what some of the characters may do next. When they are gruff, you never know what will occur next. When they act friendly, it is unsettling as they must have a reason that may not be nice. It is a hard novel to read casually as there is always something coming and it is always just a few pages ahead. An excellent start to the series.
