loner. No parents. No wife and kids. No liabilities. He had one love in his
life – the Special Forces. As a member of the elite Task Force Scorpion, he’d
been on more near death missions than most soldiers experienced in a lifetime
and he liked it. So when his commander forced him to run protection for a
senator’s daughter’s wedding, something a mall cop could do, he was
pissed..Kate Richards had a chip on her shoulder. After being fired from her job as a
CIA analyst because her boss wanted her in his bed instead of behind a
computer, Kate was left without a job or a clue as to what she would do next.
So when the commander of an elite SF team asked her to help bodyguard at a high
profile wedding, she did what she had to do. She took the job.After years of ribbing and sexual harassment, Kate wanted nothing to do with
men. Period. Especially tall, dark and handsome alpha male operative Ethan
Slade.The last thing Ethan
wanted or needed was to give up his life as a roamer, avoiding any attachments
or obligations. But neither of them is prepared for the instant eruption of
desire at their first meeting.The two come together in an explosion of passion so potent it will leave them
both marked for life. But just as quickly as they’ve come together, Kate is
violently ripped from his fingers, and it’s up to Ethan to rescue the woman
he’s come to love before he ends up alone again.
❤️ My Review:
This is a quick easy read about the skilled military hunks of Mercy and the new woman hired for a special mission. The mission to get the bride to the church on time isn’t what the guys normally do but those are their orders. This story features Ethan, the sexy loner with no home and no family other than his team members. When he gets a look at Kate he’s a goner. Kate’s a tough woman with a domineering mother and recently jobless. She’s former CIA and is the perfect addition to the team guarding the bride. The mission goes wrong and their old nemesis is the cause. The cliffy at the end sets up for the next book. The sexy men and Kate will be on a mission to recover what was taken by the evil Mr. J. This is a well written light read that goes really quick with an insta love/lust connection between the two featured characters. The men of Mercy are terrific and Kate is a wonderful character. Not the usually girly girl but a tough cookie with mad skills. I look forward to the next story in the series.
