LETHAL OUTBREAK by Lisa Harris and Lynne Gentry, Reviewed by Rebecca Maney

"You look as comfortable as an unwanted genome in a virus?"

Not his most chivalrous line, but "Seriously? Had he actually said that to her?" Her . . . being Dr. Rachel Allen, a quite lovely epidemiologist, whose expertise Dr. Aiden Ballenger needed, and quickly! His rapid response research team had unwittingly disturbed a latent virus whose components seemed to rise from the dead, quickly infecting an entire Tibetan village, decimating its inhabitants. Rushing back to the United States, Aiden needed confirmation of his findings, and Rachel's lab had all the equipment. Following their impromptu introductions at a swank DC party, Aiden and Rachel hurry back to her lab, only to come face-to-face with the worst kind of danger.

On the run with a highly contagious virus on ice, the two doctors literally race in and out of countries in order to save their evidence. Totally confused by their circumstances, they have internal debates about trusting each other, nearly perfect strangers, with their very lives. It appears that they are both going to have to "take a leap of faith and trust God to do the impossible. . . " . . .  in between some rather memorable kisses.

This story takes off at full speed and never slows down . . . in the best kind of ways! Totally fascinating! Another great story showcasing the skills of these two authors. . . and giving just a whisper of what's coming next!
