During a hostile situation at the American embassy in Angola, Special Forces officer Cole Scalini is ordered to take out a suicide bomber and rescue a hostage. Simple enough for a sniper with his training, until he realizes that the woman in danger is neither a random nor a typical victim. She's pregnant.
Callie Nascimento is carrying her sister's baby as a surrogate when she discovers her sister was killed under suspicious circumstances. Now Callie's become a target. Her only hope for survival is a rebel of another kind, a handsome loner of a military man who's risking his life to save her.
As Cole strives to keep Callie safe, fighting the terrain and terrorist attacks, his respect for her grows. She's strong, capable and sexy as hell. But before he can explore if their attraction is something deeper, he has to get her safely back on U.S. soil. Because the enemy is much closer to home than they realize.
Any additional comments?
This appears to be a good book and I'm going to finish it by just reading it. Here's how it goes: The hero and heroine are trying to get out of Angola. He saves her from a bomber. They hurry up to the roof, repel down. Find his partner Moss and all the time they are doing all this they are YELLING at each other. Not the H/h or Moss but the narrator. If you're in the middle of a war zone and are trying to get away the chances of you YELLING are slim-to-none but I guess that's the only way she can make the men sound a little manly, I don't know. All I know is that she's ruining the audio version of the book. Anyway, I gave this book 3 stars for the time I tried to listen because I didn't want to be unfair to the author. By Saturday you should be able to see my review on Amazon for the book's final posting. This happens too often. You buy a book and listen to the sample, hardly ever getting to hear the narrator do the man's voice, then when you do it makes you cringe. I'm going to assume the author has no final say in the narrator because this kind of thing happens too often. And reviews like this one will keep a lot of other buyers at a distance.
