Publisher's Summary

Kait Winchester inherited a special gift from her Arapaho ancestors: She can heal with her touch. And there is no one she would like to get her hands on more than the super-sexy SEAL who seems determined to ignore their off-the-charts chemistry. When the wounded warrior finally seeks her help, she’s ready to nurse him back to health…and into her bed.

Navy SEAL Lieutenant Marcus "Cosky" Simcosky is no stranger to hot water, but recent events have boiled over into one hell of a mess. His team is under investigation for a hostage rescue gone wrong, a crazy female stalker is on his trail, and the last few bullets he took just may sideline him for the rest of his career. The kicker? The one woman who can help him get back on his feet - and has haunted his fantasies for years - is his teammate’s sister. He’s looked but never touched. When his stalker targets Kait, though, Cosky will have no choice but to do whatever is necessary to keep her safe.

    "Second Book Better Than First!"

    I've been looking forward to this book for months, ever since first discovering Forged by Fire. The publishing date was delayed several times, but finally we get to enjoy more Navy Seal action. And action, there certainly is!

    This book follows "Cosky" and Kait, but we also get some glimpses at Beth and Zane's relationship (from book one), as well as other secondary couples together with a hint of the relationship that could be in book three. The romance is secondary to the plot, however, and I was happy for it. Ms McCallan writes wonderful action scenes which kept me on the edge of my seat.

    Luke Daniels is a brilliant narrator for this. As much as I enjoyed Angela Dawe's reading of the first book, Luke Daniel is even better. Worth a credit? A big 'yes, indeedy!' from me. Don't dither! Go, buy now!

    Story
    "Blown away"
    Would you listen to Forged in Ash again? Why?

    I have just finished it for the first time, and have promptly started at the beginning again.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Forged in Ash?

    There is too many, the cohesiveness of the characters, the cadence, the relationship between the team - I just love this. Yes it's a romance but boy, there is more here than *just* a romance (or two!). I have already downloaded book one, as I have listened out of order and I don't care about that, they will happily stand alone as well as in a series.


    What does Luke Daniels bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    As an avid reader as well as a huge fan of audible books I know I'm on to a great writer when I hear it read to me. I will happily put my hand up and say that so many of the writers I've discovered in the past two years are because I avidly follow books that Luke Daniels narrates. He is my "go to" narrator.

    Luke Daniels doesn't just read the book to you, he "performs" the book. He breathes life and light into characters, taking them from their physical one-dimensional ink on paper form and breathes life into their souls to create characters that become apart of you.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I couldn't do that justice but I'm glad for the question - does this mean this book might become a film? - nice!


    Any additional comments?

    Thanks Audible - I get through my days so much easier with your books and I am sooo happy I discovered Luke Daniels! You sell me books I'd probably not normally look at because he is reading them and I know I'll be getting a red-hot go and meeting any book in it's best light if he is reading it...

    "Trish McCallan is Exceptional - I'm in Love !!!"
    Any additional comments?

    I love book series that revolve around each member of a Seal team and this one delivers perfectly. There's just enough suspense mingled in with the humor and personal relationships. The characters are lovable and the good guy always gets the girl (love happy endings.) I would recommend this book to anyone who loves romance books and those big handsome, hunky and ready to defend Seals. This book is Hot romance/action and Suspense at it's best! Luke Daniels narration had me drooling over the Hot sexy Seals so i hope he is the narrator in the next book. Such a sexy voice...

    In the second Red-Hot SEALs series, we pick up after book one with Cosky still not healed from being shot. While the rest of the team is looking for clues into the near hi-jacking and kidnapping, Cosky is doing his best to sear clear of Kait, who he has been avoiding for the last 5 years. However, when he finds out that she was able to heal her brother's spine, he decides to give it a shot. Their mutual lust hasn't waned in 5 years and things get hot quickly. This book continues the story from book one and the team finds out more about the scientists and what they were working on. New players are brought in and the story just keeps getting more intriguing. Can't wait for Rawls' story next...

    "It gets even better..."
    If you could sum up Forged in Ash in three words, what would they be?

    Action packed passion. Nah, that doesn't come even close. Sorry three words are just not enough, no way!


    What other book might you compare Forged in Ash to and why?

    I can't compare it to any other book because it's unique. I've not read another with the same story line and so far, you think it's going to go one way and then "nope" not going there... it takes you somewhere else completely different.


    Have you listened to any of Luke Daniels’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is my first Luke Daniels narration and I loved him. I thought he really completed the story. I really loved Trish's first one of this series, "Forged in Fire" and although the female narrator was very good, I feel it would have been even better had it been read by Luke Daniels.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed book one so much that I thought I might be expecting too much of this second one. I'm very happy to say that I found it was even better and know that book three is going to be just as juicy. Trish continues where she left off in book one which means it's best to read/listen to them in order.

    In this one we get more insight as to the waves created by the bad guy's actions, meaning that all actions carry consequences, some good, and in this case very bad. By waves I'm talking about Gillian (no spoilers, don't worry).

    At times, depending on the interaction between characters I think I have a premonition into the next book, but NO I DON'T, I don't have a clue cause Trish just goes along and mixes things up for me, which is fine, cause I'm liking where she leads even better.

    As you can see I'm not one for "spoilers" so if you want to know what the heck I'm talking about you'll have to listen to this book.

    Once again I am in awe of Trish's talent for delivering a "heated" romance filled with action at every corner and at so many different levels, literally! It's the kind of action a guy would like or an ex-tomboy like me would, but I don't think it's overdone in the sense that other women would find it boring and too much. The action is so well written, it just adds to the climax. She really is good at it and I really do think she has done a wonderful job.

    I hope book three doesn't take so long to come out in Audible as I'll be forced to read it on Kindle or paper, which I don't have a problem with but this way I get to also listen to Luke Daniels act out the scenes for me and make it even more amazing.

    Great work both Trish and Luke. Thank you!!!

    "Cosky and Kait's Story within the story"

    Loved this second book in the Red-Hot SEALS series. The fact that some of the characters have special "gifts" is one of the defining components of the stories. It winds a love interest in with a mystery involving men with special ops credentials to make for a very attention holding story. Anxiously awaiting the next one in the series.

    "Well worth it!"
    What other book might you compare Forged in Ash to and why?

    Sort of like Maya Banks KGI series.


    Have you listened to any of Luke Daniels’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was the first book by this narrator, it was a great range and I really enjoyed him.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did listen to it in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    The only down side was it didn't finish the mission, I'm sure the next book will finish it out. The relationship was finished so I don't mean that wasn't left unclosed. It also jumped to different story lines, and as soon as I had to know what would happen next it jumped back.

    "good story"
    Would you listen to Forged in Ash again? Why?

    yes, but I didn't like the narrator.


    What did you like best about this story?

    storyline was good, liked the healing.


    What didn’t you like about Luke Daniels’s performance?

    He was very stereotypical in his voices for the characters. That Mac sounds way over gruff and Wolf sounds like a real stereotyped Indian -really awful!


    Any additional comments?

    Find a different narrator for the next book please.

    The only reason I enjoyed this book is because of location. I liked the first book more. I don't think I have even finished this one. Enough said.

    "Not finishing.."
    Any additional comments?

    I'm at 45% and the book is good so far but I'm not going to finishing it. I just went to Amazon and had a look at the 1 and 2 star reviews and that was enough for me. It was a year and a half or so before this book followed Forged in Fire and according to several reviewers this book has NO end. Now, I don't mind waiting a couple of months for a book to come out in a series but I WILL NOT wait a year or two. I'm sticking to trilogies where all three books are all out. I HATE CLIFFHANGERS if I can't just go to the next book and finish the story. I can see authors' losing there readers if they continue to write these kinds of books that don't end. I think most of us just want a stand alone book so we can go on with the next author and see what they have to offer. This is a real shame!!

    As to the narrator: I'm not crazy about male readers but Luke Daniels does a very decent job doing the female voices. He has a very nice voice.
