This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
In the volatile tinderbox of the Horn of Africa, Morgan Adler has made the paleoanthropological find of a lifetime. The discovery brings her to the attention of a warlord eager to claim both Morgan and the fossils, forcing her to make a desperate dash to the nearby US military base to beg for protection.
Master Sergeant Pax Blanchard has orders to intercept Dr. Adler before she reaches the base, and in so doing saves her life. After a harrowing afternoon he safely delivers her to his commanders, only to find his responsibilities toward protecting the obstinate archaeologist have only just begun.
Morgan and Pax are forced to work together in the Djiboutian desert heat, but it is the fire that ignites between them that threatens to combust them both. For the Green Beret, involvement with the woman he must protect is a threat to his career, while for the archaeologist, the soldier is everything she never wanted but somehow can’t resist. When Morgan uncovers a mystery surrounding Djibouti’s most scarce and vital resource, the danger to her reaches the flashpoint. For Pax, protecting her is no longer a matter of following orders, and he’ll risk everything to bring her back alive.

Rachel Grant’s Evidence & Flashpoint series are a must read
It's a cold and rainy day and I started this book at 8:15 this morning and could not put it down.
I loved the Evidence series and was thrilled to find Rachel Grant's new Flashpoint series, both series are fantastic and each one is better than the last. Exciting plot that keeps you involved to the very end. As always the excitement keeps you turning the pages. It’s an intriguing story-line with many twists, surprises and very well written. The main characters are well developed and have an interesting relationship. I also like it when characters from past books show up and help. However, you do not need to read the books in order, they are related but not dependent on the other stories. Absolutely riveting. I could not put the book down until I had read it in full. This was her best one yet.
Another 5 Star Book!
One of the her best works yet! I have read all of Grant's works and I love her style of writing! This book is yet again was a perfect 5 from Grant! I love her use of strong, intellegent women in her books that may or may not need help from any man! And the men may be alphas but they respect and love the intellegent strong willed women they meet. I love how Grant uses real world issues and situations with acuracy and precision with attention to deals and events. And the romantic side of her books is off the charts. . .chemistry is spades! Highly recommend this book no matter if you are new to Grant or a long time fan like me!
