As a five-nation war simmers in the Caspian Sea, Captain Claudia Jean "Cee-Cee' Casperson of the Night Stalkers and Colonel Michael Gibson of Delta Force are called in to subdue the conflict. They'll need all their combined ingenuity to stop a clash that could have catastrophic global repercussions. And they'll need to do it while remaining under the radar. It'll take all the strength they have—but it will take even more for the pair to breach the walls they've built around their hearts.
Military action, black ops and breathtaking romance in artfully crafted story.
Claudia and Michael are top of the crop when it comes to military talent in their own fields. Both being introverts, observes of the world, that have held the world and people at a certain distance, are a bit loss with finding their soul mates, someone who has access to their hearts. Together they make amazing team, they are in sync with each other, they thought patterns aligned. They can communicate with each other with just a look or a touch, just being in the presence of each other centers them, and gives them peace, safe place to be. It was close to poetic to read about them together, they don't use many words, lots of inner thoughts and reflection takes place. But they have love, passion, and connection that is rare and amazing, fascinating.
The action that takes place, both in the beginning and the end of the story is fierce and intense. The missions they undertake are nearly impossible to complete, but time after time they manage to come through, hundred percent, and alive. The technical details are plentiful, military history, and stories of the missions accomplished ample. I personally think they at times distract from the plot, drown the story, and let the reader's mind wonder, taking off from the potential of the vivid and sharp action.
I enjoyed the story, it has alluring romance with charismatic characters and captivating, nail-biting action
