This time, the straight-and-narrow path could be the road to ruin.
Dr. Elyse Morgan’s mission: find the cure to the HTN4 virus. The compensation, courtesy of the United Nations: a lab stocked with hi-tech goodies, limitless resources and enough chocolate to make her rear look like a cellulite farm. Bonus: she gets to live.
Rescued (kidnapped) and secreted (imprisoned) on an undersea warship, Elyse adjusts to her assumed identity as a cadet with the finesse of a toeless ballerina. Her sulfuric temper and blatant insubordination capture the unwanted attention of the ship’s captain, the gorgeous, infuriating, engaged Nicoli Marek.
Elyse would rather perform her own autopsy than become the other woman, but Nicoli—who’s as full of himself as he is of secrets—regards his impending marriage as a mere political transaction. And Elyse as fair game.
As Elyse’s suspicions about the UN’s true agenda mount along with her attraction to the relentless, chronically shirtless captain, she must choose between the murky path to everything she’s ever wanted, or the squeaky-clean path of self-sacrifice—which could mean taking the secrets of the virus with her to the grave.
Warning: Features a strong, chocolate-loving heroine who takes no prisoners on the way to saving the world from an epidemic and winning a captain’s heart.
"Degrees of wrong" is a book by the author of "Of Poseidon" Anna Banks under the name Anna Scarlett. Since I still havent read Of Poseidon, this was my first encounter with her writing and I was very pleasantly surprised. I really liked the storyline, the virus contagion and kidnapping of our main heroine Elyse to try finding the cure. We see how Anna imagined our world in 2053. A.D. and it is very unique and realistic. Elyse, who is the main character and the doctor tryng to find thecure for the virus that took out her parents, is an amazing woman. I love the funny side of her and her temper and I was crying from laughing so hard at her interactions with the Lt. Horan. The love interest, captain Nicoli Marek, is a good man, sexy and sometimes frustrating but very much in love.
All in all, "Degrees of wrong" is an interesting novel, funny and charming and I recommend it to everyone who likes a good romance book.
