You can't outrun the past
FBI Special Agent Lynda Culter is investigating an ecoterrorist organization in the Alaskan wilderness when she and her partner are taken captive and he's murdered before her very eyes. The only person who can identify the key players, Lynda gets assigned to take part in a joint operation in Istanbul to take the organization down.
As a woman in a Muslim country, she'll find it much easier to move around undetected with a fake husband. Unfortunately for her, the one assigned to play the role is none other than Army weapons specialist Bill Sanders--the man who crushed her heart in college.
With a cargo bay's worth of hurt and baggage between them, these two consummate professionals must play their parts perfectly if they hope to stop those responsible for bombing oil pipelines, which has killed innocent civilians and threatened to destabilize the oil markets. Protecting Lynda becomes Bill's primary focus--but love long buried has a way of resurfacing at the most inopportune times.
Reviewer: Laura J. Davis
It's not often you can read new releases so close together. So I was excited to discover what would happen next in Hallee Bridgeman's continuing Love & Honor series.
As before, Bridgeman grabs hold of the reader from the get-go and doesn't leave much time for air. While we meet all the same characters from the first book, this time, the spotlight is on Bill (Drumstick) Sanders, and we learn more about his backstory. Bill's hard stance on not being distracted by a woman is tested when he has to work with his former college sweetheart, FBI Agent Lynda Culter.
I was amazed at how the author's mind worked. She is a master at describing technical, strategic and planning details for missions that feel incredibly real and plausible. And she does all this while weaving a romance and faith element into the storyline.
If you haven't read the first book, you shouldn't be too lost with this one. But, do yourself a favour and read it anyway. I highly recommend this series!
