Gunship pilot Captain Candace Bradford has worked long and hard to earn her rank and position within the male-dominated world of Air Force Special Operations. She's not about to let anything or anyone jeopardize that, let alone one sinfully tempting man who seems determined to cause her nothing but trouble. Even if she's starting to fall for him.
As an elite Combat Controller, Staff Sergeant Ryan Wentworth is used to overcoming adversity in order to complete a mission. Breaking through Candace's prickly exterior and into her heart is a challenge he can't let go. But just when he's begun to gain her trust, they're thrown together in the field facing an overwhelming enemy force.
Candace and Ryan find themselves on the run, searching the skies for an emergency extraction. But one dangerous enemy has an agenda in mind and he'll use whatever means necessary to achieve it, including using American forces to do his dirty work..
I absolutely love this series.
The author creates an atmosphere, where you feel like you are in the war zone yourself. You feel the suspense, tension, danger, while you sit on the edge of your seat biting your nails, hoping for rescue. The battle details, as well as the medical ones, are incredible, and authentic.
The camaraderie of the troops, the raillery between them, caring for each other, makes you want to be a part of them.
When you add to this the true hero alpha males, who would do anything to protect their troops, and woman they love. And the women are independent, capable, true professionals themselves, you have a winner.
The love story is passionate, adorable, and beautiful. Something that truly makes you swoon.
Even though this book is part of a series, can be read as a stand-alone. There is no cliffhanger ending.
