Publisher Description

Elizabeth Shields has always craved adventure. That’s why she went to work for the CIA straight out of college. That’s probably also the reason she feels drawn to Quinn McManus, a veteran of the British Special Air Service. The big Scotsman gives off a dangerous vibe that she can’t resist. Yet, resist she must. She and Quinn both work for Cobra International Security, which has a strict policy against hook-ups between employees, and she’s too much of a professional to date a coworker. She and Quinn can never be more than friends. But when his best buddy from the SAS is found murdered on the streets of Glasgow, Elizabeth will do all she can to help Quinn cope with the loss … and find the culprit. 

Quinn McManus escaped a life of poverty by joining the British Army. His fellow soldiers became his family, forging a bond stronger than blood. Now, with his best friend dead, he needs Elizabeth’s special skills to help track down the killer. He has no intention of getting physical with her. Rules are rules. But as their unofficial investigation heats up, so does the attraction between them. Still, he refuses to surrender. Because if they cross the line from friends to lovers, there will be no going back. 

But some battles can’t be won, and soon the passion between Quinn and Elizabeth ignites, hot enough to melt the cold Glasgow winter. As they move closer to the truth and to each other, they find themselves in the sights of a stone-cold killer, who won’t hesitate to destroy them both to keep a terrible secret.

Danger and Romance in Scotland

Be prepared to not be able to put this book down once you start it! Keep some tissues handy also.

This third book in the Cobra Elite Series, starts with a flashback of a harrowing escape, then goes full force into the first chapter.
Quinn McManus is a Cobra operator who was formerly in British Special Forces. He’s a bit of a loner, and loves his whiskey. He has been flirting with Elizabeth Shields (former CIA) and they have a good relationship, but the no fraternization rule of the company is putting a damper on their “friendship.”
Quinn gets heartbreaking news about a brother in arms and his best friend, murdered in an knife attack. He immediately heads to Glasgow, Scotland, determined to find Jack Murray’s killer. Jack’s wife Ava and two little girls Olivia and Isla are devastated, and Quinn vows to find the killer and redeem Jack’s honor.

Elizabeth is known for her hi tech abilities and her ability to speak several languages. She’s strong, intelligent and learned from a previous experience that “office” romances don’t work. She heads to Glasgow because she knows without her, Quinn will get into trouble. She doesn’t tell him she’s coming and surprises him in his hotel room. The sight of him shirtless makes her question her doubts about romance. The spark ignites.

I enjoy all Ms. Clare’s books, especially her I-Team series. The Cobra Elite adds more world travel and new characters to her already amazing talents writing romantic suspense. This story is especially interesting to me because Scotland is one of my favorite places, and one of Ava’s and Jack’s little girl’s name is Isla......my granddaughter’s name.
Most of Ms. Clare’s readers have a particular hero they love, I’m a Julian Darcangelo fan. But, Quinn is a very close runner up!
If you like world issues, danger, suspense and hot romance, grab this series.
