About The Black Swan Series
The Ladies of Black Swan were active duty military selected for a test program to prove women could be as effective as men in Special Operations. They were trained like SEALs, Special Forces, Force Recon, and Marine SpecOps. Unable to return to the military until the services allow women in those roles, these five highly-trained assassins now work for Section 7 of the Department of Homeland Security. Their mission is always to eliminate someone who has the potential to cause a Black Swan event such as 9/11.
It takes a special man, an Ubuer Alpha, to love a woman who can shoot better than they can and who looks better in a Ghillie Suit than they do. But when they capture the heart of a Black Swan, they mate for life.
Katlin Callahan keeps secrets. Not just the ones involving the most dangerous men on earth she hunts as the Ladies of Black Swan team leader, but those she keeps from Alex Wolf. She’s loved him for years…as a friend and short-time lover, before life happened. Reunited after three years of silence, and celibacy for Katlin, her teammates convince her to use Alex to get back into dating. But can she use the man who makes her body zing, without losing her heart?
Alex Wolf didn’t think anything could surprise him after serving as a Marine Corps SpecOps Company Commander, but finding his former lover, Katlin Callahan, in his corporate apartment, naked, pointing a gun at him, was a shock. In more ways than one. Seeing her again, brought back memories of their college days, when they were lovers, and she was his. Now both single, again, he’s determined to make her his forever.
I’ll start with WOW! I totally loved this book. There is nothing like 5 incredibly brave, strong women to put men in there place. In this case in more ways than one.
Katlyn is Lady Hawk, the commander of the Ladies of the Black Swan. A secret military test group, trained as special ops. Their goal is simple in theory, complicated in fact, challenging in all. Challenges her team are more than qualified to meet and do EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. As a result they have a large price on their heads, more even than the Navy Seals do.
I think Alex doomed himself right at the beginning of the book when he and one of his managers were discussing the female who passed Ranger School. Then seeing Katlyn in the company apartment only confirms the fact that these two want each other. No matter what might happen. Even as they stop fighting it, there is her job and his. He isn’t going to like hers at all. Here is a favorite scene while they celebrate Lei Lu’s birthday.
Alex pressed his whole body against her and took her mouth with commitment. It was too much. She hadn’t been kissed like that in… years. She slowly pulled back and gentled the kiss.
When they came up for air, he hugged her tightly as they both caught their breath. He ran his hand up and down her back.
“Christ, I’ve missed you,” he said into her ear and squeezed her even tighter.
Tori and Nita walked into their VIP seating area and grabbed their drinks. Nita swatted Katlin’s outstretched legs and said, “Get a room, bitch, or share.” Katlin untangled herself from Alex and gave him a passing kiss as she sat upright on the couch. Nita fell into the space beside her. Tori threw her endless legs onto the third couch and stretched as everyone ignored Grace, who was having a private conversation with Griffin.
“Where’s our birthday girl?” Tori asked, looking around. “I thought she was with you,” Katlin said.
Manuel, standing at the railing to watch the dancing mob, announced, “She’s on the floor with both the pro dancers. She’s having a good time. She’s on her third shot, though.”
“She’s an adult, and besides, it’s her birthday.” Nita shrugged as she licked the last drop of her pink drink. “She can deal with it.”
“She’ll just sleep in tomorrow, and we’ll be expected to drag her sorry ass out of bed sometime after noon,” Tori reasoned.
“I’ll whip up my hangover cure, and she’ll be fine within a few hours,” Nita offered.
Katlin finished her double, a needed alcoholic reinforcement. She looked at Alex and said, “Let’s go dance.” She took his hand and pulled him off the couch toward the floor of bouncing bodies. As they found space amidst the dancers, a Latin pop song started.
Katlin draped her hands loosely on Alex’s shoulders as her whole body moved to the music. He placed his hands to her hips, and they moved together as though they had been professional Salsa dancing partners for years.
