Another series romance. This is the 12th book in the Hideaway series. The couple featured, Merrick Grayslake (what a great romance book name) and Alexandra Cole, were introduced in earlier books and this is the story of how they got together. Merrick is an ex-CIA agent who lives a reclusive life while working around the globe as a covert operative. While attending his best (and only – he’s reclusive remember?) friend he meets Alexandra Cole, an art history graduate student and daughter of a well-known musician. Their romance happens pretty quickly and quietly while Alexandra finishes her studies in Mexico (I love it when romance books leave America). But a particularly dangerous assignment for Merrick may put both of them in danger.
