Cyclone by Janie Crouch
Publisher: September 25, 2018
Series: Linear Tactical, 1
Genre: Romantic Suspense

He’d protect her from any threat…
But what if the biggest threat is him?

Doctor Anne Nichols is back in Oak Creek, Wyoming, only because she has no other options. Here, she was always the shy, stuttering girl, invisible to everyone.

Except Zac Mackay. The very reason she left in the first place.

Zac’s years in Special Forces taught him survival skills, and he’s created a company—Linear Tactical—to teach those skills to others, so they never have to live in fear.

Then why is Annie, the last person he’d ever want to hurt, afraid of him?

Zac’s determined to wipe the fear from the eyes of the woman who has never been far from his mind. And fix the mistakes—his mistakes—that put that look there in the first place.

But a predator has set his sights on Annie. And now survival skills will become much more than lessons…

Pat's Review:

A contemporary romance with lots of action, suspense, and sizzle. This is the first novel I have read by this author, and can’t wait for the next.

Zac MacKay is a former Green Beret, back home in Oak Creek, Wyoming where he and his brothers in arms have started a military-like training facility. It’s well known throughout the country. Zac grew up here, married and lost his wife Becky and two year old son in a tragic accident six years ago. One thing he can’t forget is a drunken sexual encounter with his wife’s best friend the night before he headed back to Afghanistan, just a few days after her funeral. Anne Nichols is that shady memory he is most ashamed of.

Annie returned to Oak Creek after her recent divorce. She is an excellent ER physician, but grew up extremely shy, with an embarrassing stutter. She remembers that tragic night, feels like she betrayed Becky, and knew Zac never wanted to see her again, because he told her so that night. When Zac has a motorcycle accident and is in Anne’s ER, their memories collide. She is now Anne Griffin and was doing her best to stay invisible in town. Zac recognizes the fear in her eyes when she sees him, and despite his own shame is desperate to know why she is frightened.

I really enjoyed how the author quickly had them talking to each other, explaining each of their emotions and setting them to rest. No games. They were able to work on a relationship they both needed.

But there is a lot more action and mystery that kept me from putting the book down! I highly recommend this sexy, suspenseful romance.
