There's a new virus in the Congo -- it's highly contagious and deadly. Dr. Rikki Kinn is a top virus hunter and she's sent to investigate. Before she even gets to her transport, there's an attack that leaves a friend dead or wounded -- she's not sure. The Congo is not a safe place to be at the best of times; but it's not random, the attack was specifically aimed at Rikki. Soon, she doesn't know who to trust and a misstep could cost more than her life. From official release/information:
From back of book: A Woman in Jeopardy: Dr. Rikki Kinn is one of the world's best virus hunters. It's for that reason she's in the Congo, working for the CDC. But when mercenaries attempt to take her life to prevent her from investigating a new and deadly plague, her boss calls in a favor from an old friend--the only one who can help.
A Prince in Exile: Africa--a land of lush veldts and roaring falls, untamed splendor and primal fury: Amiri's home, where he was raised to race as a cheetah, to wake with the sun. It is also a land of lingering nightmare, where he was kidnapped and experimented upon by the evil group named the Consortium. Now, against his better judgment, Amiri has been asked to return to his homeland by his colleagues in Dirk & Steele--men who are friends and brothers, who like himself are more than human. He must protect a woman who is the target of murderers, who has unwittingly involved herself in a conflict that threatens not only the lives of millions, but Amiri's own soul...and his heart.
