Ian and Braden Thomas return to the United States to extract Katie Buchanan, the sister of the teammate who betrayed them. She could very well be the key to taking down the man responsible for turning Ian and Braden into unstable cat shifters. Unfortunately, they're not the only ones after Katie. Katie has no intention of going quietly or of offering her trust on a silver platter. She's got troubles of her own that don't include two pain-in-the-ass men who claim her dead brother sent them. She's too busy trying to stay one step ahead of Ricardo de la Cruz, the brother of a man she killed.

Pretty good story. I'm not really into paranormal, but I enjoyed this one. I've also come to realize I'm not a big fan
of threesome s in the bedroom so that is why I gave 4 stars.

Valeria McGregor was a better shot, a better fighter, and smarter than everyone she'd ever gone up against as an agent for the DEA. Then she'd uncovered illegal activity within her own organization and was fired as part of a cover-up. That was how she'd joined the secret group who reports only to the president. Valeria fully plans to find the men and women hell bent on ruling the world from the shadows, but she also has revenge on her mind.

liked the story...great premise!. Who doesn't like a smoking hot cowboy? I liked the heroine too. She is smart, very capable and practical. She's a little like all of us, living our lives, but secretly having a little dream that will never come true.....but will it? Can it?
The narrator was ok, and she did pretty good expressing the female lead, but not very well for the male lead. She didn't follow the descriptions given in the story of how he spoke. If he whispered words to her, she needed to whisper. she didn't give the dialogue how the author wrote it. Her voice was good, but just wasn't good on her delivery. Sorry

Again, love, love, love this book by Suzanne Brockman. I love all her characters. Joanie and Michael are so cute and sexy. Really loved the fact that Joan wasn't a raving beauty, but Michael fell for her instantly. The dialogue was so snappy. Suzanne Brockman also shares a little history in each of her books. This one touched on the beginning of frogmen (later SEALS) during WWII.
