Sergeant Burke Gifford went to South America to find renowned military nurse Angel Paredes, to work with her and mend lives.

This is an interesting story. Angel is a member of the Peruvian army who feels she always has to prove her strength because she is a Quero. She firmly believes that Spanish Peruvians feel they are superior to the Queros because they are simple folk directly descended from the Incas.

The author delves deep into the Quero history and it makes fascinating reading.

Angel is a good strong heroine despite the chip on her shoulder and soon comes to respect Burke. The romance is soon igniting between them and the passion flares very nicely!

The story of how they go deep into the remote villages to try to heal the people and the special powers that Angel has makes exciting reading. I liked the way the story flows easily along.

It is hard for Angel to trust a man fully. She certainly never intended to fall for Burke but loving a man must include trust. Lindsay McKenna handles Angelís painful journey to leave her past behind and move towards a future full of promise with wonderful sensitivity and understanding that carries the reader along on this emotional journey.

The women who work for this special force that Angel is seconded to in the army, are a very special breed of women who know they can do any job a man can do. Angel is one of these women and the readerís respect for the women grows with the story. We are left with a desire to follow the rest of the unitís stories - hopefully in books still to come from this popular author.
