USA Today Bestselling Author
Evan is known for being unpredictably mysterious and untamed. Even his old lover Megan believed in his camouflage. When she transfers to the West Coast to join the new helicopter division, their lives collide once again. Finding out he carries a torch for her is a massive shock–and a rush she’s not sure how to handle.
With another SEAL unit under attack needing their help, Megan gets too close and the bad guys turn on her. Evan is her only safety, but this enemy is gunning for both of them now, and they need to find out what happened to their friends–fast, before they become the next MIA.
I love stong heroines and Dale Mayer definitely delivers. In this book we get a closer look at Ice and meet her new partner Megan. The book starts as Ice and Megan pick Levi’s team out of a mission gone wrong. An ambush that will change all their lives.
Evan was part of the team that went in to get them out, he and Megan have a bit of history and now he wants to see if there is more for them. Megan is a bit more skeptical, although she does have feelings for him as well.
As this investigation opens, things are really tense on base, and Megan thinks she may have seen something.
He led the way back to where he knew he’d find Mason.
At the big meeting room where Mason was prepping for a large presentation, Evan stopped and cleared his throat.
Mason turned and frowned. “What’s wrong?”
Evan could feel the hesitation in Megan’s movements. “Megan is worried that she saw something yesterday. It’s easily corroborated but I wanted to run it by you first. You might know.”
He put the chalk down and turned to look at Megan. “What did you see?”
Evan listened as she explained. “I’m probably making too big a deal of it. It’s just it seemed odd to me,” she said with a shrug.
“Anything else?” Mason asked, his probing gaze locked on her but there was curiosity there. As in he heard her and expected more.
She winced and slid him a sidelong glance.
“What haven’t you shared?”
“It’s nothing major and honestly I don’t want to make a mistake based on race.”
Mason studied her. “They were another ethnic group?”
“Yes, they were all Mexican looking. They spoke Spanish. But I don’t want to make a snap judgment based on something like that.”
“We don’t do that.” Mason called down to security. Even listening into the one half of the conversation, it was easy to understand the information.
When he replaced the phone, Mason turned to stare at her. “A van did come through to fix the vac system in the hangar you were in, but they say only two men were clocked in and out.”
“So,” Evan said. “They just met up with other men while here? That’s certainly not unheard of.”
“Neither would it be unheard of if they were hiding in the back of the van,” Megan said, her voice tart. “I’m not saying anything other than there were four men at the same place at the same time.”
“Thanks for letting me know,” Mason said in low slow tone. “I’ll check it out further.”
“Or we could,” Evan jumped in. “Asking questions won’t seem untoward if she’s bothered by something.”
“And you, what’s your excuse for being there?” Mason asked slowly.
Evan glanced over at Mason. “I’ll be able to think up something.”
“Stone is missing his lucky cross,” Mason said. “Please check the helicopter for it and ask the crew if anyone has seen it.”
Evan flashed a smile and nudged Megan back out of the room. “Let’s go.”
“I don’t need you to go with me,” she said, tugging her arm free. “It’s probably nothing.”
“And now it is something even if only an item to knock off our list of things to check out.” He wasn’t going to brook any argument. “Besides, I’ll get to spend a little more time with you this way.”
She laughed, a bitter note weaving through her tone. “And why the hell would you want to do that?”
