The members of a top secret SEAL Team can’t keep their passion under wraps in the first novel in this contemporary romantic suspense series from New York Times bestselling author Monica McCarty.
Like Rome’s Lost Legion, a SEAL platoon goes on a mission and vanishes without a trace...
After walking into a trap on a covert op in Russia, the men from top secret SEAL Team Nine are presumed dead. Not knowing whom they can trust, and with war hanging in the balance, the survivors must go dark and scatter around the globe.
Marine ecologist Annie Henderson joins her new boyfriend on a trip to the Western Isles of Scotland to protest a hazardous offshore drilling venture. When she realizes that she may be swept up in something far more dangerous than she’d intended, there is only one man she can turn to...
She and the mysterious but sexy dive boat captain haven’t exactly gotten off to the best start, but something about his quiet confidence makes her think that he’s the kind of man she can depend on. Because he’s gruff and guarded, she can tell Dan Warren has secrets. But she could never imagine how high the stakes are for him to keep his cover, even as he risks everything to protect her...
McCarty's exciting contemporary series launch will not disappoint fans of her historical Highlands romances, as she finds plenty of ways to bring in Scottish elements and even the occasional kilt. Annie Henderson, a naive marine ecologist with a shiny new Ph.D., visits Scotland's Western Isles to board an experimental oil drill ship and stage a sit-in to protest oil drilling. She was recruited to join the cause by her new boyfriend, Frenchman Julien Bernard, but starts having second thoughts when she meets his unlikable mentor, Jean Paul La Roche. Dan Warren, who captains the boat that will take them out to sea, immediately suspects that the "protestors" are actually saboteurs planning to damage the ship, but he doesn't want to get involved because he's got serious reasons for laying low: Dan, aka Dean Baylor, is one of the few surviving members of the top-secret SEAL Team Nine, which was attacked while deep in Russia. As he gets involved with Annie and helps to save her from her dangerous companions, he also tries to figure out who targeted his team and why, setting up future series entries featuring other surviving SEALs. Fast-paced chase scenes and adrenaline bring Annie and Dean together, and they take full advantage of time spent hiding in picturesque beach towns and grubby shacks.
A romantic suspense book vacation
The elite SEAL team 9 is sent on a covert op into Russia, only to find themselves pawns in a blown mission and caught in a deadly trap. The government quickly closes the case when all are presumed dead…but the survivors are looking for the truth and won’t stop until they find out who betrayed them.
Annie Henderson is a marine ecologist on a mission to save the world from a hazardous off shore drilling project off the coast of Scotland. She didn’t realize that the very greed and corruptions she is trying to stop have taken root in the very mission she is about to embark on. Annie soon finds herself the pawn and betrayed by those she thought her friends.
Dan Warren has been biding his time to uncover the plot that destroyed his team. Undercover as a dive boat captain, he finds himself captivated but wary of Annie. Dan knows her group is up to no good but is unsure of her role in this plot.
Going Dark is what I’ve come to expect from a good romantic suspense. Dan plays the perfect brooding male while Annie plays the spit fire but completely clueless female. Annie’s passion for her cause keeps her in the dark about the true depth of the situation she finds herself.
Action intense, Going Dark is one of the books that just hits the spot when you need a book vacation.
