Oliver Grant. Decorated soldier, then Major in Military Intelligence. Now a case-hardened mercenary - selling his services to the highest bidder wherever the going is rough. Seemingly the perfect choice to rescue the stepson of a millionaire Mafia boss from a Libyan prison fortress.
Except for one tiny detail. Grant doesn't want the job.
It takes kidnapping and threatening his younger sister before even Grant is forced to see sense. Dimitri Stavrou does not play games. But then Grant's beautiful, gentle lover turns up on the wrong end of a machine gun... and he starts to realize just how much trouble he's in....

There's a fine line between too little back story (leaving the reader in the dark about too many things) and too much (wasting the reader's time with "stuff" that's not important right now).
This one missed - with too much back story before we got involved in the action or the characters.
