Publisher's summary

The all-new KGI novel from the “incredibly awesome" (Jaci Burton) number one New York Times best-selling author of When Day Breaks.

The Kelly Group International (KGI): A super-elite, top secret, family-run business.

Qualifications: High intelligence, rock-hard body, military background.

Mission: Hostage/kidnap victim recovery. Intelligence gathering. Handling jobs the US government can’t...

The enigmatic Hancock has been both opponent and ally to the KGI teams for as long as they've known him. Always working a deep game, Hancock's true allegiance has never been apparent, but one thing is for certain - he never lets anything get in the way of duty.

But now, his absolute belief in the primacy of his ultimate goal is challenged by a captive he's been ordered to guard, no matter how much she suffers in her prison. She's the only woman who's ever managed to penetrate the rigid walls surrounding his icy heart, but will he allow his perplexing feelings for the beautiful victim to destroy a mission he's spent years working to complete or will he be forced to sacrifice her for “the greater good”.

GREAT STORY!...RATCHET NARRATION!

How can a book be so good, with such horrid narration???? MB deserves major kudos for pulling this one out. The story that's told is one of incredible courage, and I love love love that the hero was a character that's been on the fringes of the KGI series---Hancock has intrigued me from the start. Similarly to Steele, Hancock is mysterious, dangerous, super edgy--all the ingredients for a super hot alpha male. His heroine, Honor Cambridge was smart as a whip and very likable. I was completely drawn in to this storyline and listened in almost one sitting. What made the narration awful is that TB was way too dramatic--lots of yelling for no reason, really awful female voice characterization, and his pace was a little too slow at points throughout. Despite all of this, I loved this book, and could easily listen to it again immediately. Highly recommended for the romantic that also loves a bit of action.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
