Ranger Under Fire: Nothing is more dangerous than falling in love
CIA analyst Bethany Bryant has risked her career to prove her former love, soldier Marcus Allen, actually survived a military ambush - and betrayed his country.
But when she finally tracks the rugged army ranger to a remote Texas town, Marcus doesn't remember who he is... or why someone is trying to kill him.
With an assailant determined to silence both of them for good, Bethany and Marcus must go on the run in the hope he will regain his memories.
But will Bethany's risky gambit to expose the truth clear his name and give them a future... or end their second chance at forever?
Action filled story where trust is put to a test, where integrity is questioned, doing the right thing could be wrong, and love could be just blinding them from the true, crooked nature of the other...
Marcus Allen is a character, that even with all the questions about his nature and intentions, I immediately liked him, trusted him, and wanted to cheer for him. The inner light of a good, solid man was shining through, the faith in God unwavering force in his life, his kindness and considerate nature as obvious as his attraction towards Bethany Bryant.
With Bethany, I struggled a bit to like her. I understood where her mistrust and skepticism came from but her blindness to the situation at hand, her stubbornness to think the worse, to be so easily manipulated to believe the most negative possible outcome, it started to get to me after awhile. She struggles with her faith, she struggles to believe Marcus, she struggles to believe the culprit is as bad as they proved to be, yet Marcus's brothers in arms see the truth with fewer convictions and evidence that she has.
Marcus and Bethany's feelings towards each other were genuine even though the past conflicts weight on their minds and hearts. The constant dodging of the attacks towards them, the questions of who to trust, the fight to survive, and the mind games of past memories, and the challenges the amnesia create, all provide a non-stop battlefield with vicious action, brutal combat, and tussle to survive.
