Okay, this is the last of the romance tangent! And maybe the best of all. Maxine “Max” Blake (strong women in masculine jobs have to have a male name) is a security expert assigned to protect Dr. Adam Gary, a scientist who has been working on a top-secret project. He has created a fuel cell that could put the big oil companies out of business while revolutionizing the energy sector. But a racist South African group wants to use the cell to create superweapons. Are you feeling the love yet? Of course Max finds herself strangely attracted to the geeky, reclusive, sexy doctor. The feelings are reciprocated and romance and danger ensues.
