A battle-hardened warrior will risk himself to help the woman he loves escape from deadly enemies in this thrilling, edge-of-your-seat novel of romantic suspense from New York Times bestselling author Linda Howard
Jina Modell works in Communications for a paramilitary organization and loves it. She likes the money, the coolness factor, and being able to kick terrorist butts without ever leaving the comfort of the control room.
But when Jina displays a high aptitude for spatial awareness and action, she’s reassigned to work as an on-site drone operator with one of the elite GO-Teams. The only problem is that she isn’t particularly athletic, and to be fit for the field, she must learn how to run for miles, jump out of a plane, shoot a gun . . . or else be unemployed.
Team leader Levi doesn’t have much confidence in Jina—whom he dubbed Babe as soon as he heard her raspy voice—making it through training. The last thing he needs is some tech geek holding them back from completing a dangerous operation. And no one is more surprised than he when Babe begins to thrive in her new environment, displaying grit that wins the admiration of her teammates. What’s even more surprising is that the usually disciplined leader can’t stop thinking about her smart mouth . . . or the building chemistry between them.
Meanwhile, a powerful congresswoman is working behind the scenes to destroy the GO-Teams, and a trap is set to ambush Levi’s squad in Syria. While the rest of the operatives set off on their mission, Jina remains at the base to control the surveillance drone as they’re suddenly attacked. Thought dead by her comrades, Jina escapes to the desert, where she must figure out how to stay undetected by the enemy and make it back to her crew before they’re exfiltrated from the country.
But Levi never leaves a soldier behind, especially the brave woman he’s fallen for. He’s bringing back the woman they left behind, dead or alive.
