Abby is rescued by Tristan and Lucas after she is kidnapped and placed into a mental institution by the doctor doing unauthorized experiments on her.  Lucas has been dreaming about Abby ever since The Agency found out she might be in danger after some records were found detailing some of those experiments.

The fourth book in The Agency series picks up where Passionate Immunity ended.  Passionate Vengeance resolves some issues that have been hanging around, but not all questions are resolved regarding the vaccines that have killed other people or the partners the doctor and traitor may have had.  Some of the shots ended up having dangerous pathogens infecting the unsuspecting patients, who are later given a vaccine to counteract them.

Abby and Lucas have an almost instant chemistry.  Some of the secondary characters urge caution, though some teasing occurs about this relationship.  The other partners put Abby and Lucas on notice about covering for each other as they learn trust in their new partnership. There was also an incident with the medical doctor at The Agency that bothered me a little and I hope this situation is resolved in a future story.

The author does a good job explaining about how tedious investigations are and how the smallest piece of information can bring a major turn in a case.  I would never have put that particular piece of information into the mix and it was a very big surprise, which also led to a surprise ending.  The ending was not something I would have guessed.
