Absolution - Diane Alberts Absolution is packed with sensual tension, action/adventure, second chances, and true love.

Eva is a teacher who, despite her father's demands to move back to the States, insists in remaining in a most dangerous place.

Joseph is a creme de la creme ATF agent, who's been forced to stay away from Eva. To his surprise, the same man who's kept him from her enlists him to protect her.

Eva wants nothing to do with Joseph, her only wish is for him to leave her the hell alone. Under other circumstances, Joseph would do just that, but keeping her alive is his top priority. His second and hidden priority is winning her heart back.

Power of wills clash when they find themselves in the same room, and just when sensual tension rises...their adventure begins.

I have to say the sensual tension in this book was a total teaser. When things started to heat up, gained momentum and I thought "oh he's gonna...", "aah she'll...", "why can't she...he", BANG! Action knocked on their door (literally), then thoughts such as: "OMG run", "hide", "get the hell out", "oh no", went thru my mind.

I'd love to say more but I'd spoil it. Absolution took me on an emotional roller coaster ride. It ROCKED!

"Eva can’t believe Joseph dares to show his face to her after he’d cheated on her with a stripper—in her bed. She’d kicked him out, and has no desire to let him back in, despite his claims of being assigned to protect her from the Cartel. Her life very well may be in danger, but she fears more for the safety of her heart.

Joseph made one foolish mistake a year ago, and has been paying for it ever since. She might not want to allow him into her life again, but he doesn’t care if she despises the very thought of him. His duty is to keep Eva alive, even if it might end up being the death of him. Because he never stopped loving her.

Can they put their painful history aside, and work together against her enemy? Or will the past prove too strong to be forgiven?"
