That is, until a chilling warning convinces her that the danger is very real--and escalating.

In the suspenseful romance Against All Odds by Irene Hannon, Monica Callahan, a bright and successful woman, must deal with the overwhelming danger forcing its way into her life. A Middle East terrorist spans across the ocean and marks Monica as a new target. The FBI is quickly called in. Now, Monica must rely on her faith as well the ability of her handsome and enigmatic bodyguard, Evan Cooper. But even with this ever-present threat, Monica must face her neglectful father. She is asked to put Matthew 18:22 into practice and make peace with the man who hurt her most.

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 Monica’s 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 Monica’s 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

    Monica Callahan and her father have been estranged for quite some time. So, when Monica is forced to go into protective custody under her father's directive, her resentment for her father- and his duties as a diplomat overseas- only increases. Evan "Coop" Cooper and his partner are assigned to guard Monica while her father tries to successfully negotiate the hostile hostage situation in the Middle East that is the reason behind Monica's protective measures. As the mundane days drag along during the negotiations, Monica and Coop form a bond that begins to turn into attraction. However, when the negotiations don't move fast enough for the terrorists, an American terrorist cell kidnaps Monica to put pressure on her father. In a high stakes race against time, Coop and his team must follow the clues to find Monica and hopefully save her life before it's too late.

    This book had a lot of action! There were twists in the plot where the hostage situation was concerned that kept me guessing who the real enemy was. When Monica was kidnapped, Hannon did a superb job at capturing the terror one would experience- especially a woman- under those circumstances. I was surprised by Monica's father's fate, but was warmed by the reconciliation that occurred. The one area of the story that I had a hard time with was actually Monica and Coop's relationship. It was made pretty obvious from the beginning that Coop was a lady's man, so I had a hard time believing that he and Monica would actually be an item. There was just a disconnect there for me. Overall, exciting and action-packed read!

    I loved this book. 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.
