The Foreign Affairs Series by Nikki Navarre
Viral engineer Christabel Orlova wakes in a Turkish bazaar with two passports, two governments on her tail, and no memory of her dangerous past. Armed only with keen wits, survival instincts and mad skills in the research lab, Christa has three goals. Stay alive. Stay one step ahead of her hunters. And find a cure for the Ebola bio weapon whose secret is locked in her brainbox—before it wipes out the human race. Gypsy, loner and wild child, her first rule of survival is never to trust.
Ex-Russian fighter pilot Major Max Vasylko is a gun-for-hire smuggler who’ll fly contraband cargo anywhere in the world, no questions asked. But he can’t fly far enough to forget the wife and daughter who died in an Ebola outbreak. When a bio weapon from a rogue U.S. program is to blame, Max wants revenge—but he’ll have to stand in line. The Russians are racing to capture Christa. Sy McTye, charismatic head honcho of the super-secret National Security Intelligence Agency, hires the Maestro to take Christa out. And the Maestro—elegant ex-KGB assassin Nikolai Markov—never misses his mark. Then there’s Dr. Bryce Burgess, the ambitious Army scientist who murdered Christa’s brother. He’ll kill for the secrets locked in her head.
When a hunted Christa makes contact with Embassy Moscow, it’s out of the samovar and into the fire. When hot-as-hell Max stomps out the flames, she’s oh-so-tempted to trust him. Which makes Max’s granddad and employer, Russian FSB Colonel Ivan Vasylko, a very happy man.
In modern-day Moscow, the Las Vegas Strip meets the Wild West. Every girl’s a supermodel or a spy, every guy’s a mobster or a mole, and the energy’s as bracing as a bucket of ice water flung in your face. The U.S. Embassy’s a citadel in the storm. Where sober-suited diplomats with attaché cases and classified orders advance American interests with discretion and decorum.
Most of the time.
“The meticulous description of Russia mixed with the very real worry of chemical weapons gives Navarre’s latest a razor-sharp edge of suspense…When the intricacies of the plot collide with a hero and heroine doing their best to melt frozen Siberia, readers will be on the edge of their seats.” – Romantic Times Magazine
“Meet Max Vasylko, pilot-for-hire: he’ll rocket you to forty thousand feet, blow your mind at zero gravity, and plummet your heart to the ground…and that’s all before you step inside his plane. From the jungles of Juba to the mountains of Corsica, Nikki Navarre’s latest breathless adventure straps you into the jump seat of a black-market cargo plane piloted by a hot Slavic hero with regular stops for high-octane escapes, machete-wielding baddies, and more sex-laced intrigue than you can handle.” ~ Jamie Michele Award-Winning Romance Writer
