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 great romantic story about Dr. Elyse Morgan and Caption Nicoli Marek. The story was great and it was pretty sexy (yeah that's what I gotta say about it). I enjoyed the whole story but there were some parts I didn't like so much. Some parts of the book (and most of the plot) read a lot like a fan fiction. I don't know how to explain it but it just has that quality to it. About halfway through the story, Ryon (Nicoli's brother) showed up and that part was where it had the fan fiction quality the most. I think it was supposed to be a plot twist but I just thought what happened was pretty damn convenient. A lot of the parts where Nicoli pursued Elyse was really funny and there were some parts that I laughed. Most of the things revealed at the end wasn't of surprise to me. I already thought something like that was going to happen. It was pretty much a harem (anime term).
