Blurb: IN THE LINE OF FIRE.
Former SEAL Malachai “Mac” MacCarrick is all about the future he’s created with his Navy brothers in Eagle Securities, taking assignments in the most dangerous places, and doing things no one but ex-military would attempt. But when an urgent phone call brings his troubled past—and the woman he once loved—into the present, it’s a chance to redeem himself that he can’t refuse.
STRAIGHT TO THE HEART…
An investigative journalist researching an explosive story, Delaney Shapiro tells herself she got over Mac—and his role in her brother’s death—a long time ago. But the first moment she sees him at her bedside in an overseas hospital, she knows it’s not true. Every moment together rekindles the desire that once burned between them, and now that she’s a target for an emerging Russian arms dealer, Mac won’t let her out of his sight. To protect her, he’ll risk it all—including his life…
Review: What a tangled web! She loved him until she blamed him for her brother’s death. He loved her but was wracked with guilt over witnessing her brother’s death. There’s a lot of angst to be found in this book, but the author’s skillful weaving of the plot allows us to glimpse the pain but not become dragged down in it. The two main characters have grown and changed over the years of their separation, but it seems like the passion and love might still be under there, buried by an avalanche of time and regret.
Mac’s invested in his new life with the security business. However, all it takes is a phone call and he’s running back into the past, chasing the girl he once loved. Why is Delaney in Germany in the hospital? More importantly, why is she calling for him?
Danger follows Delaney back home, but first she and Mac have to figure out whether the perpetrators of increasingly close attacks are after her or him. Luckily their feelings aren’t a mystery… Except to each other.
This is a great story with well developed characters and plot twists that keep you interested and confused at the same time. Slot for is an excellent suspense writer and is recommend any of her other sites as well as this new one. Thanks for the great read, can’t wait for the next one.
