Publisher's Summary

After walking into a trap on a covert op in Russia, the men from top secret SEAL Team Nine are presumed dead. Not knowing whom they can trust, and with war hanging in the balance, the survivors must go dark and scatter around the globe.

Marine ecologist Annie Henderson joins her new boyfriend on a trip to the Western Isles of Scotland to protest a hazardous offshore drilling venture. When she realizes that she may be swept up in something far more dangerous than she'd intended, there is only one man she can turn to....

She and the mysterious but sexy dive boat captain haven't exactly gotten off to the best start, but something about his quiet confidence makes her think that he's the kind of man she can depend on. Because he's gruff and guarded, she can tell Dan Warren has secrets. But she could never imagine how high the stakes are for him to keep his cover, even as he risks everything to protect her....

Contains mature themes.

Critic Reviews

"McCarty's exciting contemporary series launch will not disappoint fans of her historical Highlands romances, as she finds plenty of ways to bring in Scottish elements and even the occasional kilt." ( Publishers Weekly)

Not as good as highlander series

Totally different genre I know but the narrator took some real getting used to and the danger was not very deep. Neither was the seal situation. Maybe because you didn't really get to know any of the villains or the camaraderie of the seals. There just wasn't enough time dedicated to either side. Maybe if I listen to more in the series I'll begin to feel the seal camaraderie. I almost couldn't get into it because the narrator's male voices and the heroines voice were pretty corny sounding. The narrator did improve about a third into it. She dropped the valley girl voice for the heroine and the men started sounding more normal. She did passable accents though. Better than I could ever do anyway.

Narrators make or break it

The narrator is really challenging to listen to. A suggestion is not to hire elderly narrators to communicate younger characters in books. It never works. I felt like I'm listening to a scene out of the movie 'Cocoon'... Her accents are overdone and annoying to listen to. Once I can get past the Dorothy thing from the 'Golden Girls', the story seems to be shaping up to be okay. Still got 7hrs to go... Not sure if I can handle the narration.

Monica McCarty does it again!

Going Dark sets the scene for another amazing series from the McCarty. The book opens by giving us a glimpse into the life's of the platoon members and then sets the stage for the rest series with anchor characters of Dean & Annie and Colt and Kate. As with all McCarty's books she provides an amazing love story full of sexual tension mixed with the right amount of drama and high stakes action to keep the reader highly engaged. I've only one complaint with the work - that I have to wait for the second installment! Great job and I can't wait to learn more about the lost platoon.

Another great story from M. McCarty

I love the story, it's a good start for another series from her. I really can't wait to find out what happens next. I do wish I liked the performer more. Ms. Wiley does a ok job I just am not a fan of her voice. I have enjoyed the other voice work on Ms. McCarty's book much more.

Good book.. I do wish it was a medieval romance

so I liked it but I fell in love with her medieval romance so I was a little disappointed when I learned her new series would take place in our time. Part of what disappointed me was that there are only a handful of really good Scottish romance authors. But it was a good book... perhaps from another perspective it was a good move for her because some of her books had become very repetitive.

I enjoyed the story line but the beginning was a little slow and took a lot of time to get into. I am glad I stuck it out but it is always hard to get through a beginning when there is a current boy friend.. no one wants to know about that really we just want to move on.

I liked the alone time they had and felt that they really got to know eachother. It had a pretty good plot as well. I look forward to the next book.

this was the first book I completed in months as far as romance I haven't finished one in 8 months so it was great feeling to get back into it

NO clue

What character would you cut from Going Dark?

No Clue

Any additional comments?

I purchased this book and it says there is no Audible file for it?? Why is it allowed to be purchased if you can'r listen to it??
