Publisher's Summary

A dangerous cult has recently taken over the desert ghost town of Paradise, Arizona. Members worship at the feet - and in the bed - of its charismatic leader, Ethan Wycliff, and obey his orders blindly. They’ve already tried to murder one woman and they’re implicated in the disappearance of another. Nate Ferrentino, who works for private security contractor Department 6, has been assigned to infiltrate this group. It’s a challenge he welcomes - until he learns that colleague Rachel Jessop will be going undercover with him. Thanks to their shared history, he’d much rather go alone.... The problem is, only married couples can participate in cult rituals. So, like it or not - and they don’t - Rachel and Nate must pretend to be husband and wife. There’s no choice. Because if Wycliff isn’t exposed, if he isn’t stopped, more people will die. And Rachel might be one of them.

Desert Heat

Rachel made a misstep early on in her relationship with Nate and never forgave herself for her misinterpretation of the situation and vowed to never forget it.
However, the two of them are selected to work a case together that required they pretend to be husband and wife. The problem is that Rachel didn’t misread Nate’s earlier interest in her, Nate was affected more than he was willing to admit. Now it seems that Rachel has moved on but Nate still can’t get that night out of his mind either.
This case is not going the way Nate hopes, when Rachel decides to take things further on her own, with her life in danger, Nate realizes his true feelings for her. Problem now: how to get her away from the charismatic leader of the cult, because he has big plans for Rachel.
I thoroughly enjoyed this story, not a lot of graphic sex, more of a romantic thriller with lots of twists and turns.

I was not interested in the characters.

I didn’t care about the characters. The climax and how it resolved seemed generic. I listened to the first third and then jumped to the last few chapters.

The audiobook narrator Cris Dukehart was ok in what I heard.

Narrative mode: 3rd person.
Genre: romantic suspense.
