Master sergeant Hugh Franco lives only to save others, until he plucks beautiful attorney Amelia Bailey from the wreckage of an earthquake and finds himself embroiled in ways he never expected. On the run from kidnappers, Hugh must call on all his training to protect them. But Amelia's fiery touch threatens to crack his world—and his heart—wide open.
Hot Zone is book two of the Elite Force series, and I must admit I hadn’t read book one. But this one can be read as a standalone because it didn’t read like it was picking up from previous events.

Hugh rescues Amelia and her nephew from an earthquake and then again from kidnappers. Along the way Hugh and Amelia manage to fall in love. I didn’t really buy the love, lust yes, but love not so much. I did genuinely believe that they both cared strongly for Joshua, Amelia’s nephew, throughout the whole ordeal.

The side story of Amelia’s brother and sister-in-law, I became enthralled with. It was interesting to watch him open up to his wife about his fear of having biological children. He truly was a good man burden down by the sins of his father.

Overall I liked both Amelia and Hugh as individuals. It did however feel that by the end of the book I knew Hugh more than Amelia.
