Elana is hiding from a madman, when she overhears a traitor hiring a mercenary to kill someone she knows.  Vanko has to protect her from all those trying to either kidnap or kill her. 

The third book in the Security Specialist International series, Weather the Storm, is a fast-paced suspense story that crosses international boundaries.  Weather the Storm, continues the thread of trying to find a traitor in the government, who has targeted several analysts and agents of Security Specialists International. 

Elana has a fear of men, due to her being kidnapped by a madman that also killed her parents.  Vanko has been able to breach that fear and become the only man she trusts.  Vanko is adamant that they will have a permanent relationship if they survive everything thrown at them.  The chemistry between the two is hot and I loved how Vanko was so considerate of Elana, even as she tried to seduce him.

Lots of the secondary characters are from the previous books, with a couple of new ones thrown in. Two of the main bad guys, Demidas and Crocker, make for some interesting interactions between themselves.  Crocker was the nicer of the two, and I almost felt sorry for him in some ways.

While readers don’t need to read the stories in order, as there is a short explanation of what is going on, I suggest you do so.  There is a lot of backstory in each book that enhances the next story.  I am looking forward to seeing how the author is going to resolve the hunt for the traitor in future stories.
