In order to keep his skill in the field up to date, Alec “Red” Davis, Hercules Security’s chief of operations, takes a job protecting Jon Baldwin, an actor thrown into the spotlight by sudden fame. Although he’s attracted to Jon, who is modest about his success and genuinely appreciative of his fans, Alec knows he has to keep his distance. Even when Jon makes it obvious he returns Alec’s interest, there is a professional line Alec knows he must never cross – no matter how great the temptation.
While Alec accompanies Jon on a vacation to Central America, the two are caught in a devastating flash flood that pushes Alec’s abilities to their limits. Determined to get Jon to safety, Alec has to battle both nature and his own feelings. But when Jon falls ill, Alec realizes that professional integrity won’t mean a thing if he loses the man he loves.
Red and John grabbed me from the start in Ari McKay’s second Herc’s Mercs, Line in the Sand. Chief of Security Red Davis was on the job to protect actor Jon Baldwin. Jon, not the easiest man to guard had already been through numerous bodyguards, until he met his match in Red.
I loved that Jon was so giving and carefree, never taking his fame too serious that he didn’t want to please and mingle with his fans. His exuberant personality and happy-go-lucky attitude was the catalyst for Red’s feelings and this reader’s as well.
Ms. McKay drew me into their story, with lots of love and a bit of intrigue. Red and Jon needed their happy ending and together they strove to achieve it.
Herc’s Mercs is a wonderful series.
