Can you outrun death?

Zoe Anderson-Howe's pampered life is abruptly shattered when she's taken hostage by FARC guerrillas while on a business trip to Bogota. While her father struggles to come up with the ransom, the British socialite must endure hardships that test her both mentally and physically.

Elite Operative Fetch has been living in the Colombian jungle for six months on a mission to infiltrate the FARC and orchestrate the rescue of western hostages. When Zoe is added to her assignment, Fetch's sense of duty must override the disdain she initially feels for the self-indulgent tabloid queen.

The task of freeing Zoe gains new urgency when it appears she may be key in stopping a mysterious new virus that is racing across the globe, killing indiscriminately. The support Fetch counted on is needed elsewhere. Can she get Zoe out of there on her own, and will that be enough to save the millions of lives in peril?

Fourth in the romantic intrigue series: Elite Operatives.

Before she launched her New York City-based ethical clothing line, Citizen’s Mark, in May, Cynthia Salim took several trips abroad to meet with suppliers and visit factories. She instituted a “bring a buddy” policy for each trip and dedicated about 70 percent of the time to work and the rest to leisure. Her companions generally had relevant interests, adding depth to the excursions. “I’m all about bleisure,” Salim says. “After all, that’s one of the perks of being an entrepreneur, right?” Ugly word, hot trend: Bleisure is the practice of squeezing personal leisure time into a business trip.
