Acceptable Risks Cover

When security expert Jason Templeton’s team is ambushed while protecting a weapons manufacturer vital to U.S. interests, he risks his life to save the man’s daughter…and loses. Unbeknownst to Jason, his mentor had been funding experimental medical procedures after losing his young wife. Using the untested drugs, Jason is brought back to life, stronger and faster than before, but also vulnerable in new ways. He’s determined to find the traitor in their midst, who is after the miracle drug.

That means protecting the brilliant scientist Lark Madrassa. Their attraction and compatibility are undeniable, but Jason tries to deny his growing feelings for her, thinking he is too damaged. When Lark’s father is kidnapped they have to rely on each other in a dangerous plot to uncover the double agent. Before, Jason always accepted the risks—but what about when the life of the woman he loves is on the line?

4 stars from RT Book Reviews!—Diane Morasco
“Non-stop action, pulse-elevating romance and a fast pace keep this book flowing smoothly. Damschroder definitely knows how to write one sexy, saucy, exhilarating tale.”

“This is a really good story. Yes, the sex is hot, but the plot is even better. For all romance collections.”—Susan Hayes, Chattahoochee Valley Libs., Columbus, GA, for Library Journal

4 stars from The Romanceaholic
“…, the action was incredible, the medical science was fun, and the forbidden romance was absolutely delicious.”

A+ from Smitten with Reading—Christy Snow
I’ve never read this author, but I was so excited about how good this book was. The action is non-stop  with some great suspense. There is the romance story line between Jason and Lark with some sizzling scenes between them (one of his side effects is extra nerves which makes him super-sensitive to touch…wowza!) but there is also a romantic story line between Matt and the Jason’s doctor which I enjoyed almost as much as the main one. All the main characters in this were extremely likable and I enjoyed reading their stories. Really just a fabulous book. I am going to have to look up more from this author!”
