Photo-journalist, Georgina Barrister, realizes she has little time left in this world when her ex-husband hands her over as partial payment for a shipment of illegal imports. Apparently being the perfect wife, the perfect hostess, and the perfect lover hadn’t been enough for him. What did he expect of her now, to be the perfect token? As a captive on a freighter, how will she escape?

Special Agent Jake Callahan believes love at first sight is impossible, until he meets Georgina Barrister Kaplan. However, his assignment on a high-seas trafficking case must overrule his feelings when Georgina becomes the prime suspect.

In search for the truth will they lose their one chance at happiness?

JJ Keller gives us an explosive thriller in Trade Agreement as she exposes us to international crime, kidnapping, high seas adventure, murder and an electrifying romance. Meet Jake and Georgina who fall into lust at first sight, can they survive the danger, the lies and the secrets and find true love in the end.

Ms Keller throws you right into the heart of her plot then keeps our attention riveted while we hold our breath to find out what happens next. I loved her method of storytelling by giving readers snippets of how the tale evolved in alternating chapters, while using the other chapters to fill us in on what’s happening now. If she doesn’t get you with her edgy characters she will with her thrill a minute dynamic dialogue. You get to know her players intimately and you want to because her characters are so well defined. She makes you cheer for the good guys and hate the evil ones. She is a first class storyteller with a unique way of telling it. Her love scenes are evocative, sensual and sizzle on the page, while her romance between our hero and heroine is sweet and sensual.

Trade Agreement rocks and rolls with action, suspense, thrills, chills and romance. It’s a gutsy read and should come with a physician’s warning. If you like to bite your nails to the quick while sitting on the edge of your seat, this read is for you and if you, like me, love your romance on the sizzle burner, well don’t wait another minute go out and get this book.
