Duty & Honor # 2
By: Leslie Jones
Releasing April 28th, 2015
In the next thrilling Duty & Honor novel, a female CIA agent and a Delta Force soldier must catch a deadly assassin… but do they know where the danger truly lies?
After several assassination attempts on an allied royal, the CIA sends in operative Christina Madison—who bears a striking resemblance to the monarch—to pose as the famous princess and draw out her would-be killer.
When Delta Force Lieutenant Gabriel Morgan's team is assigned to Christina's undercover protection detail, he's less than thrilled. Gabe wants nothing to do with a woman whose rumored screw-up nearly got her last team killed. Not to mention there's bad blood between Gabe and the CIA—he doesn't trust anyone who lies for a living.
But once the trap is set and the assassin takes the bait, Gabe must protect her with his life … because danger lurks in the shadows, and now Christina is in the cross-hairs.
Thrilling suspense and smoking hot attraction, that is easy to get hooked on.
Yet another suspense story, I had a hard time putting down, and wasn't ready for it to end. I enjoyed the team, their dynamics, hard core attitude of protect and serve, and their dedication to the matters at hand.
The danger, threat, instability of the situation and vulnerability of the operation is constant and persistent. Surprises brings more action than expected, twists in the plot underlying sensitivity of the situation. The action is fast, brutal, cruel and bloody. The constant support and backing of the team mates balancing the minds of the warriors. There are many operators, villains, and motives, personal feelings mixed with politics, that keep the story going and the action and mystery flowing.
The love/hate relationship between Gabriel and Christina has its history from the previous mission, and rumors floating about Christina. The attraction is strong, and they fight it, to keep their focus and head to the game, in the mission. But the more they get to know each other, the deeper their emotions about each other get, and the development of the feelings is a joy to follow. The heat is hot between them, combustible by the time they finally get together.
Even though this is a book two in a series, it is easy to read as a stand-alone novel. Though I have to say, there are several comments of previous events, and missions, that might make more sense if the book one is read first (something I didn't do).
Burning hot romance, that develops while the operators are on a difficult mission to save European Royalty. The action is fast, furious, and frantic, the suspense holds till the end of the story, making it an enjoyable read
