A loss he can’t forget
Since losing his twin brother, Theo, in the line of duty, Case Taggart has felt dead inside. The former Navy SEAL has dedicated himself to his family and their business but he can’t help but feel stuck as he watches everyone else move on with their lives. Only meeting the beautiful Mia brings Case out of his misery, until he discovered she was just a reporter looking for a story. Betrayed, he turned his back on her and never looked back.
An attraction she can’t deny
Mia Danvers can’t get Case Taggart out of her head. Though they hadn’t been lovers, she’d felt more for him than for any man she’d ever met. Growing up in the shadow of her over-protective, older brothers, she felt free when she was with Case and she longs to feel that way again. She knows that if she can find any trace of Theo Taggart, Case will be forced to let her back into his life. Months of searching have finally paid off and she knows this is her second chance.
A desperate search
Case and Mia follow the clues they hope will lead them to Theo and the villainous Hope McDonald, but the search becomes increasingly dangerous. From Dallas to South America and beyond, dark forces work against them and threaten their lives. With each step forward, Case and Mia are pulled closer together and forced to confront their mutual attraction. But when the truth about Theo is revealed, Case may have to make a choice between his brother and the only woman he’s ever loved.

Those sexy Taggarts!
The Taggarts. A name sure to send females hearts everywhere racing, especially submissives. First we had Sean, who swooped in on his Gracie and protected her from an evil ecoterrorist and Mr Black. Then we have Ian, that lemon donut, Guns N Roses loving leader of McKay-Taggart who you never quite know if what he's saying is naughty or nice. (I say naughty.) He was a much harder man until his Charlie came back from the dead and brought him back to life. Now, we have the first of the Taggart twins, half brothers to Ian and Sean. Case has had to mourn his twin Theo's death during an op gone bad. And worse, he found out the woman he really liked was lying about who she was. A big no-no for Case.
It's eight months later, and Mia Lawless Danvers has worked tirelessly to find a way back into the man she loves arms. She's done just that, she's found proof that Theo is alive and she knows where he is. But when she confronts Case to tell him the news, he's not quite as receptive to the news as she'd hoped, so she takes herself off with a bodyguard and attempts to chase down the lead herself. But, after having some sense talked into him, Case meets up with Mia and stalls her departure, assuring he and his team are with her on the hunt for his brother.
Things turn typically crazy as they do in a Masters and Mercenaries novel, there is attempted kidnappings, feisty subbies, people getting shot, misunderstandings, more kidnappings. Just a typical outing in Lexi's books, but a grand adventure that I loved every second, including all of the hot, kinky sex and McKay-Taggart team fun she's known for.
These characters jump off the page and leave you feeling like you know them or people who have felt like them! Totally worth the roller coaster ride! Action & romance are a wonderfully combined pair in this series!

I have waited for this book for months although it was good because I adore the Tags 1-4.... I thought I would get more of the Theo outcome. His thoughts, his feeling...had I gotten a little more before the end of the story I would be happier.... I have already preordered the next 2 books
