Delta Force Operative Sean “Mac” McDaniels fell in love early on in his Army career. The girl, though she loved him, wanted to pursue her career in journalism before she settled down and married. Knowing he couldn’t hold her back, he let her go. In the years to come, no other woman ever held that place in his heart.
Kylie Adams loved Mac but chose to pursue her love of journalism first. Years later, she’s wondering if she made the wrong choice. A successful war correspondent in Afghanistan, she’s on the cusp of wanting more out of life than a career. Tagging along on an extraction mission with the Army, she ends up killing the brother of a high-powered Taliban leader. This action earns her a price on her head. Assigned a protector until she can get out of the country, she’s pleased that it’s a Delta Force soldier, her first love, Mac.
Together they navigate a war-torn country and their own feelings for each other. If they live through the terror, they might buy themselves a second chance at love.
Note: A shorter version of this story was released in the Danger & Desire Anthology. It has been expanded with added scenes for your reading pleasure.
Before Mac McDaniels was a Special Forces Delta operative, he was in love with Kylie. But Kylie had dreams of becoming a war correspondent, so she dumps Mac to pursue her dreams.
Fast forward several years...Kylie finds herself in a foreign country following a Ranger team’s extraction of a former Taliban member. He has information on the whereabouts of a powerful Taliban leader, but before they extract him, they are bombed and sent running. The Sergeant assigned to protect Kylie and her cameraman is shot, so she picks up a gun to defend the group and ends up killing the Taliban leader’s brother. Then in rushes a blast from the past to save Kylie’s life, Mac. Kylie can’t believe her eyes and although this isn’t the best time for a second chance at love, that’s all she can think of. With a hit out on Kylie’s life, Mac and his team are assigned to protect her until they can get her stateside.
HOLY SMOKES! The action, suspense, and passion....I could NOT put this book down. I wanted to find out if Mac and Kylie would get their second chance or be captured by the Taliban. Kylie and her weaponry skills kicked butt! I truly enjoy a novel where a heroine doesn’t HAVE to fully depend on a male to “rescue” them. The chemistry was off the charts! I highly recommend this novel if you enjoy romantic suspense novels. I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.
