Gideon's Riders, Book One

Lieutenant Ashwin Malhotra is a Makhai soldier--genetically engineered to be cold, ruthless. Unfeeling. His commanding officers consider him the perfect operative, and they're right. Now, he has a simple mission: to infiltrate Gideon's Riders, the infamous sect of holy warriors that protects the people of Sector One.

He's never failed to execute an objective, but there's one thing he didn't anticipate--running into Dr. Kora Bellamy, the only woman to ever break through his icy exterior.

When Kora fled her life as a military doctor for the Makhai Project, all she wanted was peace--a quiet life where she could heal the sick and injured. The royal Rios family welcomed her like a sister, but she could never forget Ashwin. His sudden reappearance is a second chance--if she can manage to touch his heart.

When the simmering tension between them finally ignites, Kora doesn't realize she's playing with fire. Because she's not just falling in love with a man who may not be able to love her back. Ashwin has too many secrets--and one of them could destroy her.

Ashwin is the first book in the Gideon's Riders series by author Kit Rocha. It is suppose to be a follow up to another series she has, but this is my first time reading anything by this author. I will say I was not lost, it is very easy to follow book. I might have missed small nuances but the over all story was fine to start with.
We have the story of Kora and Ashwin.
Kora she has been with the riders about nine months now. She is protected by Gideon their leader. She fled a life as a military doctor. She wants stability and a family. The riders offer her that and more. So she is willing to do what it takes to stay. I liked her right away. She is vulnerable yet a very strong person. She might need protection but she can fight, and she is a strong heroine in her own right.
Ashwin he usually thinks with his head. He calculates, measures, never goes into a situation half cocked. That is till he meets Kora. She puts all his rules on their head. Cause he cannot predict what she will do or his reaction to her.
I like that is more than meets the eye. He is strong and alpha in his own ways.
Over all this is a really great start to a series. There is action, adventure, and lots of love. There is also some room for more. I would love to know more about this world and the riders that live there.
