Book Pimpage of the Month: Mercenary's Promise

What kind of book pimper am I??? I meant to do this earlier but apparently the chip in my head is acting wonky (better get on that, Sharron).

My BFF Sharron McClellan has the second of her Mercenary series out this month, Mercenary's Promise from Silhouette Romantic Suspense. Having been there at its beginnings and reading the development of this book as well as the others, I must say these are some high-octane reads. Set in the steamy jungle of South America, it's a fast-paced combination of action and romance.

Here's the blurb:

Wilderness guide Bethany Darrow was desperate to save her kidnapped sister in Colombia, but lying about having the money to pay dark, mysterious mercenary Xavier Monero would cost her dearly. Especially when their forced proximity during a dangerous jungle rescue unleashed a smoldering, irresistible attraction.

Xavier knew the beautiful American was trouble the second he laid his eyes on her. Taking Bethany on the mission was a risk, and he wasn't prepared for the peril she placed on his heart. Suddenly he wanted more than fortune—he wanted Bethany, body and soul. But everything comes with a price….

Sounds good, yes? Well, it is. Trust me. So go get it, and pick up the first book, Mercenary's Honor, while you're at it. Oh, and pre-order the upcoming anthology Blackout at Christmas (Nov. '09) too. That last one isn't a Mercenary book, but Sharron's story is damn good.
