Master Sergeant Pax Blanchard has orders to intercept Dr. Adler before she reaches the base, and in so doing saves her life. After a harrowing afternoon, he safely delivers her to his commanders, only to find his responsibilities toward protecting the obstinate archaeologist have only just begun. Morgan and Pax are forced to work together in the Djiboutian desert heat, but it is the fire that ignites between them that threatens to combust them both. For the Green Beret, involvement with the woman he must protect is a threat to his career, while for the archaeologist, the soldier is everything she never wanted but somehow can't resist. When Morgan uncovers a mystery surrounding Djibouti's most scarce and vital resource, the danger to her reaches the flashpoint. For Pax, protecting her is no longer a matter of following orders, and he'll risk everything to bring her back alive.

A superbly paced, action-packed, sexy thriller!
Rachel Grant's Tinderbox is a fabulous, edge-of-your-seat story set in one of the most politically unstable regions of the world, the Horn of Africa. Doctor Morgan Adler has been contracted by the Djibouti government to undertake an archaeological survey of the proposed route of a new railway, but when she is threatened by a local warlord, she heads for the US military base at Camp Citron hoping they will be able to protect her and her finds - one of which could well be the archaeological discovery of the decade. Or the century.
Master Sergeant Pax Blanchard is assigned as the head of her protection detail so that she can continue her work; the attraction between them is intense, but he's adamant that pursuing a relationship with Morgan would be unprofessional and tries to keep his distance...
As Morgan continues work on her dig, it becomes clear that the threats she has received may be related to more than her archaeological finds. Someone who had worked in that area previously has disappeared and is presumed dead, Morgan is being targeted... . I’m not going to reveal more about the plot which is complex, incredibly satisfying and very topical, other than to say it’s brilliantly constructed and utterly compelling – this was an audiobook I found very difficult to put aside.
Greg Tremblay is a new-to-me narrator, and I was really impressed with his performance, which is excellent on all counts. There is a large cast of - mostly male - supporting characters, and he does a great job of differentiating between them all using a wide variety of pitch, tone and accent - and his female voices are superb. I really hope he continues to narrate books in this series, and I'll definitely be seeking out more of his work.
Tinderbox is a great listen - I didn't want to put it down!

STORY: Wow, What a surprise! This is actually a pretty original story for this genre, intelligently written, fast pace, action packed, very hot book! Rachel Grant wrote a clever, pretty believable story (well...somewhat) that is engrossing, deals with serious issues, yet full of humor, love and heat.
I’m adding Rachel Grant to my favorite authors list, and can’t wait to listen to the next in the series and more books by RG.
NARRATION: Another surprise! It was just PERFECT! GT has an amazing voice, perfect pace, great male AND female voices, and just a pleasure to listen to. He is able to have female voices that sound natural and not forced, and he distinguishes between characters very well. BRAVO!
Overall, if you like this genre, this book is a must listen! It will elevate your expectations for all others. Definitely worth a credit!
