Their life together is not over.
He has to believe it…or it will be.
Alex Wolf gets the call that every man dreads…there’s been an accident and the love of his life is in the hospital.
As an active duty special operations officer, Katlin Callahan has an extremely dangerous job and she was the best in the world. In peak physical, mental, and emotional health, she took on anything Homeland Security asked of her. Until she’s broken.
Katlin’s traumatic brain injury sets their lives on a roller coaster ride that tests their love with every twist and turn.
Katlin and her team are off on another mission, this one she’s not actually in charge of, Jonathan Cummins is. He’s a misogynistic arse and his men aren’t any better. The ladies are winding down after a long night at an Embassy dinner with Jonathan’s team. They weren’t getting any intel and couldn’t figure out why they were even there.
Jonathan shows up saying he has new intel on the new Hezbollah leader and they would be leaving in the morning. When questioned about routes and other intel he was less than forward. That begins this FUBAR mission which has the Black Swans flying top speed back to the states.
This is a favorite scene.
It would be okay. It had to be. He loved Katlin and she loved him. They were going to be married. When, he had no idea. He needed to lock Katlin down on that soon.
They needed to set a date. She needed to plan a wedding. Although Alex’s first wedding was quick and inexpensive, Katlin’s had been the total opposite. She and her mother had spent nearly a year planning everything, from renting guesthouses to transportation to the United States Naval Academy Chapel, then on to the reception venue. Her wedding to Ty was as orchestrated— and perfect— as possible.
If she wanted the big white dress and full Catholic Mass again, Alex would be sure she got it.
Glancing around the airplane cabin where his men slept, Alex decided it was safe for him to check the special app on his phone. Sliding in earbuds, he opened the program custom-made by his computer guru. A map of the spinning world began to hone in on her location, finding her unique tracking signal. It placed her over the Atlantic Ocean.
She was headed home.
Excitement filled him. He would see her soon. He clicked on the sound and listened to her heartbeat, the way he did every night as he fell asleep. It was his way of keeping her close. Her heartbeat was very slow which usually meant she was either sleeping or meditating.
Immediately, he speed-dialed her. He desperately wanted to hear her voice, and did, the recorded one. Alex hated leaving voicemail, but it was a good place to start with his explanation. Maybe they were between satellite signals.
Before he tried again, he booked his flight from L.A. to Washington D.C.. She would definitely beat him home, but he would be there as soon as he could.
Over the next several hours, Alex tried, and failed, to get in touch with Katlin.
While waiting in the private terminal for his flight to D.C., Alex’s phone vibrated in his side pocket. Deep in conversation with a Fortune 100 CEO, he almost ignored the call. At the last second, he checked the caller ID.
GRACE flashed on the screen.
He swiped the answer icon and stood. “I’m very sorry. I need to take this.” He stepped away and stared out the windows, seeing nothing, concentrating on her words.
“Alex,” Grace said in a whisper before he could even say hello. “Don’t say anything. Just listen. Katlin is being taken to Walter Reed Hospital in D.C. She’s hurt… bad. Brain injury. RPG exploded next to the car on her side. I’m in the cockpit and being watched. I’ll call you again as soon as I can, but that may be a while. We’re all on lockdown.”
“Lieutenant Hall.” Alex heard a stern male voice in the background. “Are you finished with all your shutdown procedures? We need to leave. Now.”
The connection ended.
Alex couldn’t breathe.
He’d seen by her tracker that Katlin was moving toward the U.S.A. and anxiously waited for her usual call. As he saw her get closer, he was disappointed that she hadn’t called yet, but he thought she might be the pilot on that leg, not that it’d stopped her in the past.
Alex had never considered that she couldn’t call him. That she wasn’t physically able to call.
Bad. Grace had said she was bad. Fuck, no. He couldn’t lose her. He had so many plans for them.
He had to get to Washington D.C.. He would go straight to the hospital.
KaLyn Cooper. Unending Love: Black Swan Book Seven (Kindle Locations 576-579).
What Alex finds when he arrives at the hospital has his blood boiling. Apparently Jack Ashworth, Kat’s boss and nemesis has declared himself her husband. Alex squashes that quickly and makes other arrangements once he finds out from their shared lawyer that he has Power of Attorney over her care.
This book had me in tears, furious at Jack’s shenanigans and even more in love with Kat’s team and their men. Alex and his Guardian team are totally awesome and Daniel has more than a couple of things up his sleeve when it comes to keeping Kat safe.
Don’t miss this latest book in the Black Swan Series, it has just become my favorite in this series.
