Trust is a four-letter word…
Command Force Alpha, Book 2
Captain Laurence Madigan is an anomaly—a levelheaded risk taker who learned the dark side of life in Manchester’s slums. He needed those skills to survive fourteen months as a prisoner of Firebird, a shadowy Russian cartel.
When rescued, he receives less than a hero’s welcome. He’s considered a wild card—or even a double agent. After enduring agony and degradation for Command Force Alpha, he’s determined to clear his name and bring Firebird down…even if it means escaping CFA’s London facility with a very personal hostage.
Oxford-educated psychologist Gemma Calloway should fight her abductor tooth and claw, but loyalty to her old friend wins out. Isolated in a rustic hideaway, she tends his wounds and can’t help staring at his scars and prison tattoos.
Their impromptu safe house becomes a haven of uneasy trust and potent, gathering desires. As they sort present dangers from past affection, Gemma realizes she’s in over her head…and up to her heart with longing for a good man whose last reason for living could be revenge.
Warning: This book contains a sexy British spy whose year-long imprisonment has left him a little…pent-up. And scarred. And possibly untrustworthy. Watch out for fast-and-furious sexuality, dares that cement a friendship against all odds, and oh-so-wrong but oh-so-sexy tattoos.
This is not my usual fare as military-type stories don’t generally appeal to me, but I’m very glad I kept reading this book! Capt. Laurence Madigan is a tough, commanding man who is used to getting what he wants. He is loyal and determined to complete his mission. Gemma Calloway is a great compliment to Laurence’s personality – kind, but with a spine of steel, she can simultaneously care for Laurence’s psychological pain without taking any of his crap.
Laurence and Gemma’s survivalist journey brings their fiery personalities together with primal, sensual results. This passion combined with the constant, well-paced action makes for an exciting and compelling read.
