As Coop and his partner do their best to keep her safe, Monica's father triggers an abduction that puts his daughter's life at risk. And with every second that ticks by, Coop knows that the odds of saving the only woman who has ever breached the walls around his heart are dropping. After all, terrorists aren't known for their patience--or their mercy.
Book one in the Heroes of Quantico series, this suspense-filled novel will whisk readers along for the thrilling ride.

Author Irene Hannon cleverly weaves in strong Christian elements. Not only is forgiveness a prominent theme, but Monica and Cooper regularly engage in faith-based conversations. Cooper is initially hesitant since this way of thinking is foreign to him, but the Bible and Monicas examples of faith in action make him question his lifestyle.
Structurally, the novel moves back and forth between the perspectives of Monica and Cooper. However, at times the author does branch out, revealing the story through the eyes of both Monicas father or from the perspective of the terrorists.
Readers will gladly follow the relationship between Monica and Cooper. Both are strong, independent characters. This leads to a romance that unfolds at a gradual and satisfying pace. Overall, romance readers considering taking a turn into the world of suspense should consider Against All Odds. Andrew Culbertson, ChristianBookPreviews.com

But, the statement in the epilogue the author made bothers me: ...he hadn't pushed her beyond her comfort level with intimacy, respecting the old-fashioned values her faith espoused...I didn't know the values in the Bible we are supposed to live by are "old-fashioned". I thought we are to live by God's word.
Sally3 Stars Out Of 5Good StoryFebruary 18, 2011SallyQuality: 3Value: 4Meets Expectations: 2I bought this book because I had seen many people mention that if you like Dee Henderson you will like Irene Hannon. While this book was good, the writing styles are not at all similar. In "Against All Odds" the story didn't get intense until chapter 14, whereas Henderson has the ability to get your heart racing on page one. Henderson keeps the focus on the suspense, whereas Hannon focuses more on the romance. Henderson has a clear presentation of salvation, whereas Hannon occasionally mentions the characters' faith. Henderson keeps her books clean, whereas Hannon draws attention to the lady's calves or other body curves. The story line was good, but I disagree with Dee Henderson's endorsement that Hannon writes better romantic suspense than she does.
