My Review of Rebecca Royce’s Fragility Unearthed – Cascade Series Book 3


Fragility Unearthed
Cascade Series Book 3
By
Rebecca Royce

1cf2a-addtogoodreads

Malcolm is missing. Levi is taken. And all the light from the world has gone with them.

Kendall Malcolm thought the world ended when her marriage ended and her life fell apart. She was wrong. Things could be a lot darker. She stands at the precipice—leader, mother, warrior—placing herself between the world and darkness.

But does she have to do it alone? It’s looking that way.

KindleLogo Barnes and Noble logo_150 ibooks-logo-150x150KoboLogo

So much happens in this book, Malcolm and Chase find Troy and go to see if they can enlist his help. Meanwhile Levi is taken by ‘Top Hat’ and almost dies in the process. He is left however with an inability to tell them what he’s done.

They can’t find Malcolm or Chase and Mary keeps showing up when Victoria and Kendall are in the same room. She’s shouting but they can’t understand what she’s saying.

This is a favorite scene, as an emotional Kendall goes to clear a house of ghosts.

The door was unlocked, as promised, and I walked right in, flicking on the light. Not that I needed the illumination. I could see the ghosts as much in the dark as I could in the light.

Normal people didn’t stalk around in dark houses. Small gestures toward not becoming totally antisocial …

If I’d even momentarily forgotten about the Cascade, I would have remembered the second I walked into the house. What would I have told Malcolm about this job? Well, it was a busy ghost house. Were there always that many ghosts or had they shown up simply to deal with me?

I maneuvered through them. Some of them darted toward me; others scurried out of my way. I counted and stopped when I got upstairs and had reached fifty. Anything over fifty was all the same to me.

Not too long ago, I’d watched Grayson clear a ghost Malcolm had been carting around for years—the ghost of the man who killed us—doing a strange movement with his arms. It had been amusing. Still, it had started me thinking—maybe there was a more efficient way to manage things in here. Or maybe I could just amuse myself trying.

Malcolm dragged ghosts around with him. I could make them do things too. No one waited for me at home. I could take as long as I wanted giving this a try.

I waved my hand and could feel it burn as I took all the ghosts in the room under my control. There were ten there for me to play with. I itched to send them on.

Instead, I spun them in a circle. Centrifugal motion would be my best friend. “Look at you, look at all of you. I can make you dance.”

I tipped my finger and they danced up and down. “Oh, look at you. Like my own puppets.”

Imitating Grayson’s movements I ended up spinning the ghosts again until they were a ghostly tornado in the room. Over and over they spun while I watched. It transfixed me, and I couldn’t look away.

I had done this. I could make them do whatever the hell I wanted whenever I wanted it.

A boom sounded in the house. All of my ghosts were ripped from fingers, my hand tingling as they were ripped away. I jolted. Who had done that? Who had taken my ghosts? Malcolm? I whirled around and stopped in my tracks.
Standing in front of me was a person I had not seen since I I’d come back to life at twelve years old. Ross Taylor—one of our missing teammates.

Ross stood close to six feet five inches. He dwarfed me and even made Malcolm look small. Out of all of us, Ross had always been the most strikingly handsome. He had dark skin, a muscular body to match his height, brown, almost black eyes, and his head shaven to where he appeared bald. He wore a white collared shirt which accentuated the dark umber of his skin. He paired the white short sleeved top with a pair of blue jeans and brown boots which poked out of his jeans.

I swallowed before I could speak. He was powerful. Hugely, so. He could clear ghosts, and yet his psychic ability dwarfed that talent. If Dex and my mother could “see” things, Ross experienced them as though he lived the moment. Chase had tried to locate him, complicated by the fact that like Chelsea, Mary John, Chase and myself, Ross had chosen to not remember his life with the Others. Yet, here he stood.

“Tell me you’re not a sicko now, Kendall. Tormenting the ghosts?”  He raised his eyebrows.

His words undid me. He was right. I had been fucking with the ghosts in completely inappropriate ways. They’d been alive once. Living, breathing, sentient creatures. It was my privilege to send them on. My honor, my duty. I had no business being callous.
Royce, Rebecca. Fragility Unearthed (The Cascade Book 3) (Kindle Locations 1056-1091). After Glows. Kindle Edition.

Ross is a welcome addition and Peter and Logan show up too.

Just when things appear to settle a bit, all hell breaks loose again.

Many surprises in this one, I laughed, held my breath more than once, and cried a few times as well. I am very glad the next book is coming out in May.

As a teenager, I would hide in my room to read my favorite romance novels when I was supposed to be doing my homework. I hope, these days, that my parents think it was worth it.

I am the mother of three adorable boys and I am fortunate to be married to my best friend. I live in Austin Texas where I am determined to eat all the barbecue in town.

I am in love with science fiction, fantasy, and the paranormal and try to use all of these elements in my writing. I’ve been told I’m a little bloodthirsty so I hope that when you read my work you’ll enjoy the action packed ride that always ends in romance. I love to write series because I love to see characters develop over time and it always makes me happy to see my favorite characters make guest appearances in other books.

In my world anything is possible, anything can happen, and you should suspect that it will.

I’d love to hear from you!

Cheers!!

Heather Long’s Boomers Are Back! Deadly Genesis – Boomers Book 2


Winning never felt so much like losing.

Deadly Genesis
Boomers Book 2
By
Heather Long

1cf2a-addtogoodreads

Amanda Kincaid

Codename: Corkscrew
Abilities: nuclear fission and fusion, absorbs energy and fires beams of radiated heat
Mission: recovery of lost memories and sanity

Kidnapped and experimented on by R.E.X. labs, Amanda’s memories are foggy. She can’t recognize friend from foe and she strikes out with everything she has. Only one man penetrates the storms surging in her mind, a soothing stranger with hypnotic eyes…

Simon Masters

Codename: Soothsayer
Abilities: telepath
Mission: save Corkscrew or terminate her

Cautious, methodical Simon has always been careful to keep his innermost self, contained. Simon must confront his fears—and his deepest secrets—to help the powerful mutant rein in her abilities in.

With new enemies closing in and dark revelations unfolding, the Boomers face their greatest challenge yet and the deeper into her psyche Simon pushes, the more her madness threatens them all…

Winning never felt so much like losing. The team has recovered Corkscrew, but she is lost to insanity. Simon, the most cautious of them all, must risk everything to bring her back from the brink, but losing this gambit could cost them Simon as well.

KindleLogo Barnes and Noble logo_150 ibooks-logo-150x150KoboLogo

Amanda has a lot of anger and power she cannot control right now. Even after being rescued she doesn’t know who is friend and who is foe. Only Rory can settle her.

With the team out she wakens, causing much damage. Alone with Ilsa, Simon has to make a decision. After he knocks her out and cleans the mess he waits for the team to return before doing what he knows has to be done.

“We’ve attempted to wake you up, but you panic and react. You almost blew up the medlab a little while ago. Ilsa tried to keep you in a medically induced coma, but that doesn’t appear to be an option with your metabolism. Waking you has some inherent dangers, and we don’t know the full impact of the mental impairments. I can help you wake up and buffet you—”

“How?” She dug her nails into her palms.

“Telepathy is just a label for what I can do. Are you familiar with any types of psionics?”

“No.” She shook her head. “I am still not convinced you’re not some delusion or trick being played on me by my captors.” Fear coalesced in her gut. Images flashed through her mind. Men in scrubs and face masks looming over her. A drilling noise. The smell of smoke. Bright lights over her head. She ran her fingers through her hair, searching for— what?

“Unfortunately, I can offer you no other proof than waking you up. But, if I do that, you have to fight to stay cognizant of what is happening, where you are, and not just lash out. There are others in the house— others you can gravely injure, not to mention yourself.”

Amanda licked her lips. “And if I say no?”

“Then you will leave me with few alternatives. You are very dangerous in your current state, and it will break Rory’s heart if you die.”

Her heart thudded against her ribs, a painful reminder. “I don’t know if I can.”

“Trust me. I won’t let you fall.” How compelling was this man, that she wanted to believe him even if she didn’t know him. That alien-familiar sensation tugged at her insides. “Amanda, it’s very simple.” He rose to his feet in one graceful surge and extended his hand to her. “Live or die. Your choice.”

She stared at his hand.

“What the hell…” Her fingers glided across his palm, and he closed his hand around hers. Electricity surged through her, and the shattered landscape clicked together like some mad game of Tetris, solidifying around her. The stars faded, the sky turned blue, and grass filled in all the gaping holes between the crumbling rocks. They floated upwards and she sat up abruptly. The cold air tasted of ozone and frost and burned her lungs.

Simon sat next to her, holding her hands. His blue eyes opened. He looked a hell of a lot better in person than in her head. A chiseled jaw, a hint of a dimple and the blond hair was like pale flax, perfect against his warmer skin. The hospital room wasn’t familiar, but it seemed normal if one ignored the scorch marks on the walls and the buckled and twisted door frame. Sitting up slowly, she looked down at their joined hands and her too skinny wrists. Instead of the skimpy dress, she wore an open backed hospital gown. Her tan was gone from her legs— all faded and pale. She curled her knees and pulled her legs closer.

God, she needed to shave them.

Swallowing took effort, like she couldn’t quite remember how to tell her muscles to do it.

“Hello there.” The warm-whiskey-on-a-cold-winter’s-night voice tingled through her. Delicate flutters shivered over her skin.

Moistening her lips, she took a deep breath. “Applesauce.”

Her eyes widened. Okay, now I’m freaking out.
Long, Heather. Deadly Genesis (Boomers Book 2) (Kindle Locations 225-250). Heather Long. Kindle Edition.

With Simon in her head, Amanda can be awake and in control. Without him not so much, he also needs to translate for her since her spoken words aren’t matching her thoughts. Fortunately she gets comfortable with him there.

They still need to find Ronan, and a meeting is called so the guys can learn what ‘the Program’, where Rory’s team met, was all about.

Joss and Curtis tell Rory the facility in Russia was abandoned and there was no sign of Ronan. The question remains, where are they holding him?

Amanda has a lot of healing to do and the only way to accomplish that is for Simon to do a deep purge to help her regain her memories.

What they discover leads to the revelations of lies and betrayals. Discoveries that come too late to avoid some disasters, but also lead to the recovery of Ronan.

Just about every page reveals pertinent information and peels layers of information off the mystery. With laughter, tears, love and a whole lot more.

A New Series from Lisa Renee Jones: Provocative – White Lies – Book 1


 

Provocative
White Lies Book 1
By
Lisa Renee Jones

1cf2a-addtogoodreads

There are those moments in life that are provocative in their very existences, that embed in our minds forever, and sometimes our very souls. They change us, mold us, maybe even save us. But some are darker, dangerous. If we allow them to, they control us. Seduce us. Quite possibly even destroy us.

The moment I walked into Sonoma’s Reid Winter Winery and Vineyard and made eye contact with Faith Winter for the first time was one of those moments. Provocative because I know at least one of her secrets, of which, I suspect she has many. Provocative because she believes I was a stranger to her when we met, but I am not.

Provocative because I sought her out, with no intention of touching her. But now I have. Now I want her. Now I have to have her. But that changes nothing. It doesn’t change why I came for.

KindleLogoibooks-logo-150x150

Once again Lisa Renee Jones weaves a tale so enthralling you can’t stop reading.

Even as Nick saves Faith from a couple of hired bank collectors, he knows something else is up. His motives aren’t pure by a long shot and but his attraction to her is undeniable and addictive.

Faith put her art career on hold to manage the family winery that her mother seemed determined to destroy. With her mother’s unexpected death the winery and all it’s issues is hers. Meeting Nick could be a blessing or a curse as she enters a relationship she is afraid will change everything.

We see Chris and Sara from the Inside Out Series and Faith’s art career gets a boost at a charity event at his godparents winery.

Now not everything gets answered in this book, but it won’t leave you unsatisfied.

A slow build up, full of suspense, hot sex, and lies of omission. I can’t wait for the conclusion of this tale, coming soon.

It’s Here! Wings Of Artemis #4 – Reclaiming Their Love By Rebecca Royce


 

Reclaiming Their Love
Wings of Artemis Book 4
By
Rebecca Royce

1cf2a-addtogoodreads

Diana Mallory lost everything when her five husbands were taken from her on the other side of the galaxy.

Back on the Milky Way side of the black hole, she’s deep into the war for Mars Station. Diana will do anything for her family, but every day is a living hell without the loves of her life. She assumes she’ll never see them again. But, Damian, Sterling, Cash, Lewis and Judge are on their way to her. When they find her they won’t let war, allegiance, or time differentials keep them from reclaiming their love.

Please note—this book contains the ending to Diana’s story, five hot men who love her, and a race through space you’ll never forget.

**Content Warning: Reverse Harem, Intense**

KindleLogo Barnes and Noble logo_150 ibooks-logo-150x150KoboLogo

As Diana makes her way to the ship to join her family at their secret hideaway. She thinks she sees a familiar face. Now this is nothing new to her as she thinks she sees her husbands all the time. This time however it is different.

Oh how I sniffled, this is a favorite scene.

It was … him. It … was Damian.

How was he here? My heart rate kicked up till it pounded so loudly it drowned out all other sounds. I ran. I couldn’t speak, couldn’t call his name. My boots struck loudly on the floor with every move I made. I slammed into someone, couldn’t even apologize, and grabbed Damian’s arm.

He whirled around, facing me. Recognition flooded his expression. I knew this man— love, wonder, awe, disbelief— they all played in his gaze until utter joy took their place. “Di-Diana.” His voice shook, and then his arms were around me.

“Diana.” He said again, tugging me close, so tightly I could hardly breathe. “We thought… when we docked today, everyone was leaving. We thought you were gone. Judge was working on some plans … but I told them I had to give it a last look. You’re here. You’re here.

I breathed him in. He smelled … right. One of my guys. My love. Two years without him and we’d almost missed each other. “Damian. Damian. Damian.” I kept saying his name, almost unable to utter anything else. There were things … I had to think, I had to say. “I’d just thought— literally seconds ago— that I’d never see you again, not ever.” A sob threatened, and I shoved it away. I had to think, I had to make myself function through the most elation I’d ever experienced. “We-we have to get out of here now. It’s not safe. Where are the others? I don’t know what to do. I think I’m in shock.”

He nodded, his eyes narrowing. “The others are on Artemis. Come on. I’ve got you, Diana. I’ve got you.”

I grabbed my communicator and sent my mom a message. It was brief, unclear, but I hoped she got the gist that I had found one of my husbands and was getting on Artemis. I’d meet her on the planet. Or maybe I said nothing coherent. I didn’t know. Things were somehow both fast and slow; had the Station tilted?

Damian took my hand. His strong fingers held me tight, anchored me when things spun around us. “How did you get here?” I shouted to be heard over the crowd.

“Later.” He yelled back. “I-I can’t think. If you’re not safe, I’ll get you safe. Please.”

His words told me that I wasn’t alone in my brain shutting down to basic functions. Would it come back? I really didn’t know. I never could deny his please. We walked for what felt like forever but eventually made into the docking station. Artemis was three-quarters of the way down. Like they suddenly popped into existence, Sterling and Cash were talking outside of the ship, and I could hardly trust my own eyes. There they were. They were … there. I…

Sterling saw me first, or maybe he heard my heartbeat— I didn’t know which. He leapt into a run and had his arms around me in seconds. I hung on. What was he saying? Sorry? What was he sorry for? I pressed my forehead to his chest. His heart beat and beat and beat. I could hear it. Didn’t that make it real? And then I was being passed into Cash’s waiting hug. He said some things too. Love. Yes, I loved him, too. But I couldn’t think.

“Cash.” I touched his face. He felt real, not a hallucination.

I’d dreamed this moment a million times. I wanted to be in it. I shook my head. Why couldn’t I focus?

Lewis and Judge were suddenly there too. They were all hugging me, all touching me. There was so much noise.

I breathed out. “Hi.”

“She’s going to faint.” Lewis’ voice pushed through. “Let’s give her some air.” His arm was around my waist. “Come inside. Sit down. Someone go get her water.”

I was soon on one of the couches from Orion. It didn’t belong on Artemis. It was supposed to be on the other side of the universe. But then again, so were my husbands. They must have brought furniture onto Artemis. Strange, small details made their way into my mind while large, important things couldn’t get through. A blanket was around me, water in my hand, and they were all snuggled near me, either on the couch or the floor next to it.

I held out my hand. “We have to get off this station. I need to think. I keep saying that because it’s true. Um, I’m so happy you’re here. You can’t know.” My voice shook.

“I…”

Sterling kissed my cheek. He sat to my left. I leaned on Cash, who stroked my arm. Damian was right in front of me, kneeling down. Lewis and Judge were each touching my knees. They were so beautiful.

“Where do you want to go?” Sterling kissed my cheek again. “I’ll put in the coordinates.”

I had them memorized. My mother had insisted. Either I told him or Sterling had learned to read minds. He disappeared into the cockpit, likely to enter the designated coordinates and get us launched. Lewis took his place.
Rebecca Royce. Reclaiming Their Love (Kindle Locations 139-183). After Glows Publishing.

So begins a race across space, a race to be safe. Away from Mars Station and Sandler.

A sexy and hot reunion, as they learn each other again. Fun with family and more stress as yet more threats make themselves known.

A wonderful conclusion for Diana’s story, but I know there are more books ahead in this world of Artemis.

KindleLogoBarnes and Noble logo_150 ibooks-logo-150x150KoboLogo

This book starts off with a bang, both literally and figuratively. Looking for someone to help them with the chips they have implanted, the consensus is that Dr. Ilsa Blaine is the best choice. Even better she is a friend of Rory’s. Rory makes a lunch date with her to try to convince her to help them, that’s when all hell breaks loose. This is a favorite scene when Ilsa first sees Garrett during their escape.

Something crashed against the metal door and Ilsa flattened herself against the wall. Rory spun in a half-circle and stared at the door. A furred face appeared in the tempered glass window—a face that wasn’t remotely human. A roar of fury pounded against Ilsa’s ears and she shoved her hand against her mouth to keep the scream at bay. Keen intelligence shimmered in the creature’s eyes and hate surged in it as the beast ignored Rory and glared at Ilsa.

“What the fuck are you?” Rory’s murmured question, so obviously not directed at her, kickstarted Ilsa’s brain from fear to analysis.

“Section Ten—this is the no man’s land. We need to get out of here.” R.E.X. Labs experimented in any number of weaponized options, from super soldiers to super technology. But not all of their experiments were successful and some were downright dangerous. Section Ten required clearance on the highest levels—despite the Director’s one time offer to bring her aboard these elite projects, Ilsa had refused.

She was a pacifist at heart. She preferred working with animals.

The creature roared again. “Rory, we need to go.” Ice slithered along her spine. Bile burned her throat.

“Yeah, we’re going.” By mutual consent, they jogged up the last twenty-eight steps, the beast’s roars following them to an impenetrable looking steel door, crisscrossed by sensors.

“We can’t get out this way.” Ilsa sagged against the wall. She could barely catch her breath. Every shallow pant lanced more flame into her already oxygen-starved lungs. Fingers against her wrist, she shuddered at the rapid-fire speed of her pulse. One hundred and fifty beats per minute was too fast. She needed to slow it down. The heart murmur she’d been diagnosed with as a child pinched with every squeeze.

“Back up a step.” Rory pulled her away from the door and pushed her against the other wall. “Head down.”

Wild fear raced through her,  and she ducked obediently. Ozone scorched the air and metal ground on metal. The sound ripped through the silence, halting even the mad pounding of boots and the creature’s roars below. Sunlight blinded her as Rory tugged her back into motion. A figure, bigger than the insane guard below, stared at them through the now melted door. Melted.

A heavy portion of steel flowed like slag, hardening into a shapeless blob against the frame. Jerking her gaze up, she stared into the most potently beautiful green eyes she’d ever seen. They shimmered in the too bright light—as though suffused from the inside out. Her breath clogged in her throat and her heart felt like it had paused mid-beat, only to thump again with more brutal force.

“Give the doctor to me. The captain wants you off the roof.” He extended a leather-clad arm, his fingers stretched expectantly. She would never want to meet this man in a dark alley—or anywhere there wasn’t a lot of light for that matter. Beyond the exquisite beauty of his eyes was a raw tension in his face, both fierce and frightening. Her insides went liquid with the most curious sensation, but a slam from below drove any analysis away. Maybe her mind had snapped under the pressure, but she trusted this man and she took the hand he offered.

The concept of her initial research with pets being put to use in humans both appalled and intrigued Ilsa. Eager to study these chips and the people in which they are implanted, they set up a lab for her.

To everyone’s surprise Garrett agrees to be her test subject. The only problem, he is toxic, just a touch can kill. There is also an undeniable attraction between them and he needs to protect her even from himself.

Action packed with spellbinding anticipation. With lots of romance and sizzle too.  I just couldn’t stop reading until I reached the end.

In this the prequel to the Boomers series, we meet our primary characters in an interesting manner. Michael Hunter has a mission. A mission to kill Aurora Graystone. When the time comes this hunter who never, ever misses does miss his target.Rory knows she’s being followed, she plans to corner and capture said stalker. That said, when he shoots at her all bets are off and they end up fighting and well… more, on the rooftop where he is packing up. This is a favorite scene.

“Done?” He touched his lips to her ear, stealing the smallest taste of her flesh. Her tender skin tasted of schnapps and cool malt, both decadent and sweet.

“Nope.”

He barely had time to register the word when her head snapped hard to the right, slamming into his nose. Stars spiraled across his vision, dizzying pain dousing the savage need clawing inside his skin. Her palms struck down, breaking his hold and she twisted, her hand closing over his erection, fisting it tight as they landed against the rooftop.

“Now, who are you again?” she asked, the whisper of her words tantalizing him. He could smell the hint of coffee on her breath. For some strange reason, he was glad she’d at least gotten a swallow of the drink she worshipped. He fought the urge of his hips to buck into her grip. She needed only twist and he would be racked with masculine agony.

Despite the inherent danger, he couldn’t ignore the blue-violent eyes searching his or the sweet, voluptuous lips hovering deliciously near his face. The corona of sunlight turned her blue-black hair into liquid velvet. Her body pressed into his, a tender, feather-soft weight composed of sensuous lines, lovingly curved.

A damn near perfect fit to his larger, broader frame.

Perfect.

Too perfect.

Her fist tightened, reminding him of the precarious position of his manhood, but his cock merely flexed, enjoying the attention.

“I’m waiting.” Her voice was low.

So am I.

He didn’t know who was more startled when his hands came up to her hair and yanked that sexy, little mouth to his. He brought up his knees, clamping her hips and locking her to his body. Her lips were soft, softer than he imagined. He slanted his head, inhaling her breath.

He expected a protest, but a tiny slip of her tongue against the hard line of his mouth had him opening fully, meeting her tongue with a strike of his own. He sampled her sweetness, the faintly bitter Arabica, the teasing suggestion of minty toothpaste and just a dash of cinnamon from the sticky buns he’d scented on any number of corners throughout the city.

Her fingers tightened on his cock, spiking pleasure not pain as she stroked him through the trousers. The rooftop faded under the enticement of her lips. He released her mouth for a breath and saw the confusion clouding her eyes, but greedy for another taste of her mouth he refused to answer it. He tugged her hair, pulling her back to him. She stiffened, her upper body arching as her mouth turned into a silent O.
Yesterday’s Heroes (Kindle Locations 215-236). Carina Press. Kindle Edition.

Unfortunately, Garrett, one of the other Boomers shot her with a poison. All hell breaks loose as Michael threatens his team mate and friend in order to save Rory’s life.

All Michael can think about is Rory and how much he desires her and needs to protect her. From everyone except himself. All of which goes against the initial mission, to kill her in order to draw her father, the elusive Hans Geiger, out of hiding.

An intrigue weave of events as we meet all of the Boomers, learning about where they are from, their missions and the chips they have implanted. We also meet the rest of Rory’s team although not in the most favorable way. All of this centered on the passionate relationship blooming between Michael and Rory.

KindleLogo ibooks-logo-150x150KoboLogo

A lot is happening as we start this book. Michael and Rex have been captured in an ambush, thinking to find Ronan.

Rory is pissed because Michael drugged her to protect her. Her rescued teammate Ronan is angry at everyone and everything.

Now that you’re caught up… Drake is watching the complex where they believe the guys are being held. They need to know what building they’re being held in before they attempt a rescue.

As he watches the patterns of the guards he is thinking of the best way to get information which leads to, and I quote, “Simon, I have a really bad idea“.

Joss is well trained, intelligent and a force to be reckoned with. In spite of the situation this is a favorite scene.

Training kept his steps light as he slipped over the edge of the roof and descended the fire escape ladder to the first level. The rickety metal wasn’t the best for disguising his presence, but he made nary a rattle. After utilizing a small laser to free a pane of glass, he reached in and unlocked her window.

Entry brought him into her living room. The television was on, sending flickering light to dance shadows across the room, but the sound was off. Drake went still the moment he entered. He traded the laser in his palm for a small auto-injector loaded with a fairly strong narcotic. It would knock her out and allow him to remove her without a struggle.

Joss Archer won the lottery based on her rigid adherence to protocol and her decision to live off campus. The profile he’d studied on her indicated a straight shooter, honorable to a fault, and well trained. Numerous commendations decorated her military file. No movement disturbed the darkness of the apartment, and the show on the television looked like some kind of drama. Ignoring it, he scanned the layout of the apartment. It was a two bedroom, with a large living room and a kitchen attached.

He made it as far as the sofa before he sensed the trap. Not enough time to react or do much more than brace himself as two prongs slammed into his chest followed by a few thousand volts.

Electricity scorched his system, but Drake withstood the onslaught. Bowing his head, he fought to relax his muscles as they clenched with every jolt zinging through him. His adversary rose, her hand on the Taser control as another series of shocks ripped through him.

The fierce look on Joss’s face drained away as shock filled her eyes. Drake gritted his teeth at the surge in voltage before the device shorted out and the energized assault ceased. Though his overloaded nervous system continued to fire and his heart raced on its own personal marathon, Drake’s spiking adrenaline flooded his system and counteracted most of the effects.

“You done?” It came out far more menacing than he intended, but at the moment, she was lucky he needed her alive and had a personal objection to harming fellow soldiers or he would put her ass through that damn wall. The fucking Taser hurt.

Even as she straightened, the dumbfounded surprise melted from her expression to be replaced by cool competence. If he hadn’t already been struggling with the agony she’d inflicted, he would have admired her. “I was trying to do it the easy way.” Dropping the Taser, she drew out a Beretta M9.

Drake didn’t give her time to draw bead on him. The intent to shoot him reflected clearly in her expression. The dance of shadows from the television provided his only cover, so he didn’t bother. Charging her, he tried to control the force at which he struck her. The gun went off, and the bullet burned a scrape along his biceps.

The soldier bounced off him and hit the wall. A faint crack accompanied her impact and she slumped. Not trusting her compliance, he zip tied her wrists then her feet. Next, he field stripped the Beretta and tossed the parts into different potted plants throughout the apartment. Ripping off a part of his shirt, he tied it around the wound on his arm before he began a systematic sweep.
Heather Long. Unstoppable (Kindle Locations 364-389). All Romance eBooks LLC. Kindle Edition.

You may wonder why that’s a favorite, well it takes a lot to beat one of the Boomers and she definitely gave it her best shot. Love her!!!

Of course, the who kidnapping thing is going to cause her more problems than not. Additionally convincing Joss to help them takes a lot of doing and Drake really started off the wrong way.

However when these two come together it is explosive and at the most inopportune time. As they lose contact with Rory while she’s looking for answers of her own.

Fast paced, nail-biting action and suspense. All topped off with another team member finding love.
