A SPY RUNNING FOR HER LIFE
Nicola is an injured CIA agent on the run from a failed undercover operation. Her escape plan shatters when she slams into the man who buried her a decade ago. Cash Garrison. Her first and only love. Now, sexier than her best memory and cradling a sniper’s rifle, he has questions she can’t answer. Why was she alive? And armed?
AND THE MAN SHE COULD NEVER SEE AGAIN
Cash is an elite member of a black ops organization, The Titan Group. He thought Nicola died his senior year of college and swore off love to focus on a decade of military missions. But when she shows up behind enemy lines, bleeding out and wielding a weapon, his heart and mind are unsure how to proceed.
BATTLE BETRAYAL TO SAVE THEMSELVES
Titan and the CIA join forces to uncover a mole hidden in a network of international terrorists and homegrown mobsters, teaming Cash and Nicola again. They fight old wounds and re-ignite sparks while closing in on a double agent. When disaster strikes, Nicola’s hidden past makes her the hunted target and Cash’s best kill shot may not be enough to save them.
Ah… reunion stories. My favourite kind!
This is the second book the Titan series, about a bunch of military-type men who are hired out to work for various organisations (like the CIA). I enjoyed the first book, with its larger than life characters and nonstop action, enough that I jumped straight into this one. Garrison’s Creed is a little different, with a heroine who is as heavily involved in sneaky spy action stuff as the men are.
There aren’t many situations where a character can believably return from the dead, and so I’m always grateful to come across authors who have managed to come up with one. Combine a reunion story with a back from the dead story and I’m going to be happy!
The first third of the book was particularly enjoyable, with the nonstop action and a sense you never knew exactly what is coming next. I do have to say that if real CIA agents are as silly (and constantly drunk!) as some of the characters in this book, it might explain most of America’s national security issues!
This is a series where people really love their guns, and – as I said about the previous book – it does make me a little uneasy. When they’re necessary to save someone in a dangerous situation, sure, bring them on! But there’s a lot of gun worship for the fun of it going on…
This is fun romantic suspense more than something you take seriously. It’s an enjoyable series, and I will be sure to search out future books.
