Available Today! The next explosive story in the Hostile Operations Team Series!

The world’s most wanted man is back from the dead. And only one woman can stop him…

Former Army linguist Lucky San Ramos escaped with her life, but the scars an evil terrorist leader left on her skin are a constant reminder of her captivity. Now her tormentor is back—and so is the sexy Special Operations soldier she once loved.

HOT operator Kevin “Big Mac” MacDonald rescued Lucky the last time. And then he walked away when he couldn’t be what she needed. When Lucky married his teammate, Kev knew it was for the best. But now Marco is dead and Lucky is no longer safe.

When Kev and Lucky team up to capture a terrorist, they’ll have to pretend to be man and wife on an explosive military mission to a war-torn nation. With time running out and the fate of the world hanging in the balance, Kev and Lucky play a perilous game of cat and mouse with a madman during the day.

But at night, they battle the secrets of the past and the sizzling attraction that threatens to endanger the mission. Lucky shouldn’t want the man who abandoned her once before. But the passion between them is sinfully, sensuously, dangerously hot… and proving impossible to resist.

Kame's Review:

Loved it! Just love this series.

Lucky Reid is the only one who can identify the terrorist  Al Ahmad, the target of HOT’s next mission. Lucky is no longer active duty and Kevin has been tasked with finding her and bringing her back to take part in the mission. He promised her husband Marco before he died he would take care of her; how is bringing her back to be part of a HOT mission taking care of her?

Lucky and Kev are a great couple! Lucky has such inner strength. She is a crucial member of the mission and no matter that Kev would rather her not be involved she must; as she is the only one who has seen the target’s face and heard his voice. Kevin has baggage from his youth that he has never shared; and because of this baggage he never thought he was able to love Lucky how she deserved; so he encouraged Marco to be with her, even though he had strong feelings for her. Kev was so sensitive to Lucky and what made her uncomfortable; I found it endearing. They had a sizzle right away but both fought it; for different reasons. The scene where they finally do share their feelings with each other was just perfect for them.

“I love you Kevin MacDonald. And I don’t care who knows it.”

He squeezed her tight against him, “Jesus, Lucky, you rip me inside out, you know that? You always have.”

Her heart thumped for a different reason now. “Does that mean you love me too?”

I enjoyed that all my favorite HOT heroes made it on the team in this book. We also get to know some other members a little better. I can only hope they are the heroes of future HOT titles. This is an intense book - plan on undivided reading time for the last few chapters (I had to put it down and it just about killed me!) The plot is concise and there aren’t any side plots. By nature military romantic suspense books do have some sort of violence; but this one seemed to have more than others in this series. Maybe the violence registered different for me because Lucky was one of the operators and was involved in the intense scenes. I do love that she was able to take care of herself and that the team depended on her for the success of the mission. Where there was sizzle and a little steam in this book it is by far a suspense book, the steamy scenes are well placed.

Go pre-order! It can be read as a stand-alone - but why - the others ones are fantastic! I plan on reading every book ever written in this series.
