CHECKMATE by Doranna Durgin

This action-adventure story is set in modern-day Central Asia. When FBI attaché and secret agent Selena Jones learns that her adored husband is apparently cheating on her, she escapes to a risky new job in the fictional country of Berzhaan. When terrorists take hostage the Berzhaan prime minister, as well as the U.S. ambassador and Selena herself, it’s up to Selena to protect the hostages, escape their captors, discover the terrorists’ true intentions (which are far different and more terrifying than they claim) and work with U.S. military forces outside the captured building to save the day. When she discovers that her husband is among her would-be rescuers, and that Selena herself may be pregnant, the stakes ratchet higher.


Reading a Silhouette Bombshell for me is such a sinful pleasure. They always provide a rocketing good ride and plenty of thrills. They’re perfect mind-candy, and I mean that in the most positive way. It’s a shame that the publisher has discontinued the line, but you can find dozens of old Bombshells at your used bookstore for as little as fifty cents, and these used books are also available at Amazon.com. You can find the link at http://www.amazon.com/Checkmate-Athena-Adventure-Silhouette-Bombshell/dp/0373513607/ref=sr_1_11?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1248284464&sr=1-11 .


The book is phenomenal, and a good way to get hooked on Bombshells for first-time readers. Many of the Bombshell authors are now publishing elsewhere, so you may also wish to search for their other work on Amazon
