Publisher's Summary

Step into Elaine Levine's exciting new series of alpha warriors - products of the government's secret corps of assassins called the Red Team:

Haunted by memories he cannot reach, stalked by an enemy bent on revenge...

Rocco Silas has come home to Wyoming after long years as a Red Team operative in Afghanistan. It isn't easy returning to civilian life, especially burdened as he is with a staggering case of PTSD or hunted as he is by an enemy determined to seek an eye-for-eye - neither of which can he battle until he confronts the truth of what happened one fateful day in the high mountain ranges of the Hindu Kush.

She alone holds the key to his sanity.

Mandy Fielding's dream of opening a therapeutic riding center on her family's ranch is almost within her grasp - until she hires Rocco Silas, a dangerous ex-Spec Ops friend of her brother's. His haunted eyes and passionate touch promise a love she never dared believe possible. Can they confront the truth of his past and build a future together or will the enemy stalking him destroy them both?

    "Well Done"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book to anyone who loves suspense and romance. Ms. Levine tells a story that keeps you riveted until the very end.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the compassion of the leading lady. Her understanding of a damaged soul. The leading man while brave and strong learned to lean on his lady to help him through his PTSD episodes.


    What does Eric G. Dove bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I did not realize how much detail I missed when I read the book. I obtained a clearer understanding of the underlying plot to the story. He is a really good narrator


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

    Yes it was and I did :)


    Any additional comments?

    I gave 5 stars to Ms Levine when I read her books. I wish I could giver her 10 stars for the quality of her work. Eric Dove did a wonderful job in bringing her book to life. I look forward to enjoying the rest of this series on audio.

    Story
    "Red Team is romance and action and courage !!!!!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Edge of Courage to be better than the print version?

    Yes, That's hard for me to say too! I loved the ebook version. I have the entire series and now would love the entire series in AUDIO. The narrator sounds just like you would expect Rocco to sound.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Edge of Courage?

    When Mandy says if she has to fight the entire town for Rocco to be able to stand and watch the sun move across the sky.


    Have you listened to any of Eric G. Dove’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, in the Scanguard series. He was very good in that series but I enjoyed him more in this. I'm not sure why. I loved Rocco when I first read the book, but now I can hear him too.
    Eric did a wonderful job with Rocco, as he talks you can feel his emotions.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes I did cry, two or three times. It was worth it.

    "Loved this story, loved the reader"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Edge of Courage to be better than the print version?

    The audio edition added depth and dimension to the written book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Edge of Courage?

    There are many moments when the reader REALLY infuses the edge and grit that are a part of Rocco's character. He also brings off the beauty and kindness in M's character as well.


    Which character – as performed by Eric G. Dove – was your favorite?

    All except Owen were done really well. I couldn't visualize Owen's character based on voice.


    Any additional comments?

    Cant't wait for the next one...hurry!!!

    Any additional comments?

    The Edge of Courage is the story of Special Forces soldier Rocco Silas and his search for sanity, love and family. This book is also the first in her Red Team series and I can hardly wait for the next book... The Edge of Courage is defiantly Romantic Suspense - Hot as Hell and had me on the edge of my seat from the get go...

    Rocco has given ten years of his life for the country he loves. Because of his gift for learning and mimicking languages he has spent the last eight years buried deep under cover in the wilds of Afghanistan. During this time he was gathering Intel and doing everything he could to get close to leaders of the Taliban. Rocco even married an Afghani girl and had a son, until one horrifying day when everything went wrong and life as he knew it ended.... After spending weeks at Walter Reed, Rocco is still seriously messed up in his head and runs home to Wyoming only to find that home isn't exactly home any more. Rocco tries to get his footing and ends up at his friend’s sister’s ranch. Mandy is nothing like he expected and everything that he needs and can’t have. However things are happening on Mandy’s ranch and Rocco won’t leave her until he solves the mystery. Little does he know that his nightmares have followed him and taken on a life of their own.


    In this story we meet all kinds of people, eccentric small town residents, hot alpha military types, skin heads, druggies, terrorists, Hard muscled hot alpha men and cute kids. To me this book had it all and i will be continuing with this exciting series :)

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    yes Only persons interested in tis type of drama.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Edge of Courage?

    Rocco standing in the street watching the day go by very heartrending.


    Have you listened to any of Eric G. Dove’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    the narration was well done ,female voices not very feminine, otherwise the male voices are much masculine


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

    Escaping the horrors of the Taliban


    Any additional comments?

    Best book giving the insight into just how defistating the effects of PTSD.very touching. Still do not to like the over the top sexual content. I like characters with moral values and responsible actions.That does not include sex in the back of the suv after a very tramatic experience.

    "a great start to a new suspense series"
    Any additional comments?

    a great start to a new suspense series with a collection of mouth-watering alphas to keep us entertained for a fair few books yet.
    I love me a tortured hero and that is exactly what you get with Rocco Silas. He's home from serving with the US Forces in Afghanistan after being deep undercover with the 'Red Team'. He's suffered a harrowing experience and is now totally screwed up with PTSD. He's barely functioning, struggling to differentiate between reality and his brutal flashbacks and hallucinations. The only thing that seems real to him is hunger and he is practically starving himself.
    Fellow Red Team mate Kit asks him to go stay with his half-sister, Mandy, who is trying to set up an equestrian therapy centre which is being hampered by sabotage and the first half of the novel is dedicated to Rocco staying with Mandy and them slowly getting to know one another and, of course, fall in love.

    "A new type of team novel"
    What made the experience of listening to The Edge of Courage the most enjoyable?

    Eric Dove has a smooth, sexy delivery that just melts your thoughts and feelings. He manages to convey a wide range of emotions with just a subtle change of tone. He manages to make the sexual tension palpable, and has a delivery that keeps you interested in the story


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Edge of Courage?

    Definitely the description of Rocco and Mandy's tryst in the kitchen. My other favorite would be when Rocco reunites with Zavi


    Which character – as performed by Eric G. Dove – was your favorite?

    I would have to say Owen. Even though he e does not have a great big part, Eric manages to convey the attitude of command and responsibility, and wee bit ofsnarkiness that is Owen


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

    Brave, broken men, and the women and circumstances that shaped them


    Any additional comments?

    This is really a great series. The characters are morphing with each book. I really lime the way the books "overlap" for want of a better term. As one book starts, the next one is picking up right where the last one left off

    "Good book with action and romance."

    I loved how the heroine helped our hero overcome his PTSD. These 2 really loved eachother.

    I like all these hero's, except Val he's the same ol man-whore I get tired of hearing about. I am looking forward to Kellen's story.
