First time read of this author. Non-stop suspense with Luther, Hannah, and Westy. Luther and Hannah did everything they could to avoid a romance while working on their case to find the notorious criminal "The Individual". The first book in this series is Forget Me Not. Time to Run (2006) is on my "I want to read" list. I didn't feel it mattered if I read this book out of order. Background info from the first book is included in this story.

this book was FANTASTIC!!! i can not believe that this is only her second book - she has more depth than some authors who have been writing forever. the characters are real (they are not undestructible super-heros like in iris johansen's books) and the plot is realistic. i really enjoyed this book.

Very good book. As with the first one in this series, the first page caught my attention and held it to the end. Didn't set it down until I'd finished it.

Although IN THE DARK is a stand-alone book, I would highly recommend reading Ms. Melton's previous release, FORGET ME NOT, before you start this latest Navy SEAL story. You'll have a better feel for the supporting characters, not to mention that FORGET ME NOT was a wonderful book! In this second SEAL installment, the danger is notched up, the passion burns hotter, and the saga continues.

Navy SEAL Lieutenant Gabe "Jaguar" Renault has been caught in the crossfire of a cover-up. Only a short week ago, their Admiral had assured them that Commander Edward Lovitt would stand trial for the crimes he had committed, not the least of which was trafficking in stolen weapons. Somehow, though, Gabe is now the one sitting in jail, awaiting sentence from the NCIS. Not to be deterred, Lieutenant Luther Lindstrom and his fellow SEALs are determined to see justice prevail, and there's only one way to get it-find Defense Intelligence agent Hannah Geary and have her testify as to Lovitt's crimes.

The problem is that Lovitt has done a good job of keeping Hannah away from anyone who can cause him trouble. He had her partner killed, and now Hannah is far away on the other side of the world, in a prison in Santiago , Cuba , under the watchful and cruel eye of General Pizon. When Pizon pushes his torture too far and attempts to rape Hannah, she kills him-then realizes she still has to find a way out of her prison. Thankfully, Luther and his men have come to Cuba to rescue her, which will in turn save their fellow SEAL, Gabe. Having killed the general, Hannah's escape is facilitated by the SEAL team, and now all of them are on the run from a regime bent on revenge.

Now not only do Luther, Hannah, and the SEALs need to get out of Cuba, but they need to make sure Hannah returns to the States alive, in order to testify as to Commander Lovitt's crimes against the Navy. In the course of their trip, Luther and Hannah attempt to fight the ever-growing attraction that's between them. Luther's not a man who wants to give his heart to another woman, having already been tricked once by a cheating fiance. And as for Hannah, the death of her partner and the almost-rape by General Pizon have damaged her to the point that she's not sure she can readily be close to man again.

Marliss Melton has penned another winner. Fast-paced action, nail-biting suspense, and passion all intertwine to make this story well worth the read.

Lt. Gabriel "Jaguar" Renault is sitting in jail awaiting trial for a crime he did not commit. His SEAL team is determined to get the proof of his innocence and prove Commander Edward Lovett is guilty. In order to get Jaguar out of jail, Lt. Luther Lindstrom and his crew must rescue Hannah Geary from a Cuban prison. Hannah has information about the fact that Lovett is trafficking stolen weapons. Luther and his team have to get Hannah back to the U.S. and protect her until she can testify.

This is the second book in Melton's Navy SEALs Team Twelve series. I liked parts of it, but other parts really didn't work for me. Hannah Geary is a great character who doesn't need rescued by anyone. She takes charge of her own destiny and is determined to put Lovett behind bars. I also liked Luther. He was hurt when he learned his fiancee was sleeping around, and is wary of getting into another relationship.

One thing I didn't like was naming the bad guy "The Individual". Couldn't the author come up with something better? Everytime they talked about The Individual, it threw me out of the story. I also thought the identity of The Individual was obvious from the moment he was introduced. My rating: 3.5 Stars.

pegged this as just another romance involving Navy Seals so didn't bother to read it
