Living paycheck to paycheck in Paris, American book translator Chloe Underwood would give anything for some excitement and passion--even a little danger. So when she's offered a lucrative weekend gig translating at a business conference in a remote chateau, she jumps at the chance to shake things up.
Then by chance Chloe discovers her employers are anything but the entrepreneurs they appear, and suddenly she knows far too much. Her clients are illegal arms dealers, and one of them is ordered to kill her. But instead, Bastien Toussaint drags Chloe away, and the next thing she knows she's on the run with the most terrifying and seductive man she's ever met. What were his motives--and would she live long enough to find out?
My Quickie Review:
Chloe is living an ordinary and underpaid life in Paris, scraping along as a translator of children’s books, when her roommate and friend persuade her to cover for her, translating at a weekend getaway. With a paycheck no one can refuse and a trunk full of borrowed clothes, she´s off. What Chloe doesn´t know is that the participants are arms dealers and not people you want to mingle with. Soon Chloe’s in deep trouble, with no way out but to rely on one of the bad guys, Bastien.
But everything is not as it seems. Bastien is actually undercover, infiltrating and keeping tabs on the arms dealers when he realizes he just can´t let them hurt Chloe, the innocent translator among them. The why is not something he wants to reflect upon, he just needs to do this.
I really enjoyed Black Ice as I finally found a thriller where the reactions are believable: shock, terror, and disbelief. I can’t wait to continue reading this series!
