Victoria is determined to make Marc help her find her brother Alec, especially as Marc is the one who sent Alec on the dangerous mission. Marc has had all he can take of his late employers, and has no interest in rushing to Alec's rescue. Until Victoria makes it clear that she will not accept 'no' for an answer.
Earlier story by Adair, but still as good as her newest books!
An early Adair that has been reworked and reissued. Tory Jones enlists the help of T-FLAC agent Marc Savin when her brother Alex is captured by terrorists. Marc was Alex's partner but has since retired. When he finds out that Alex is captured and not dead he plans to go rescue him. Soon he realizes that there is a psychic link between the siblings and so he reluctantly takes Tory on the mission with him. Good, quick, romantic, action adventure reading.
Great book, lots of action and heat!
Victoria has absolutely no desire to be a heroine (even action movies have too much adventure for her), but her twin brother Alex has gone missing while on a counter-terrorist mission. She turns to Marc, Alex's best friend, to try to get him home. Marc drags her along with him to a fictional Mediterranean island, where they deal with bad guys, fall in love and try to re-establish Tory's psychic link with her nearly-dead brother.
This is a re-released, "refurbished" issue of the first book in Adair's T-FLAC series. Since it's a Harlequin, it's not the most substantial of novels, and lacks some of the intensity of Adair's more recent books, but it's an enjoyable fast read.
This is a great action romance!
I enjoyed Tory and Marc's story although there were times that he made me mad in his cruel words as he tried to push Tory away. I would have liked to see more of a reunion with her brother Alex since the whole thing is about rescuing him. Also the ending was very abrupt, there was a lot left to complete their story in my opinion. It was still enjoyable and would recommend to anyone that likes the special forces romance types.
Non-stop action with a kick-ass heroine.
I am really into this series. I read the book after this one and now on the third book. There was one part I was confused about at the end. (PM me) but other than this I love this book quick and to the point. Great romance.
Marc Savin, current times, and Victoria Jones. Marc is the retired operative in the T-Flac organization, known as phantom. His best friend and partner is Alex Stone, the operative known as Lynx, and he needs Marc's help to take down Spider, a terrorist group that has long been evading capture. Marc is still grieving over the agent he killed;the woman he loved, the woman who carried his baby, the woman who was a traitor sent to kill him. He hadn't believed the story until Alex had brought the proof and literally dropped it in his hands, and then he had sent Alex packing, right into the hands of Spider, and to his death bed. Six months later he comes home to find a woman asleep on his couch, a woman he has never met, or even heard of, though she claims to be Alex's twin, But Alex never mentioned her, and he is dead, a little too convenient for Marc. Victoria knows her only chance of getting her brother away from Spider alive, is Marc Savin, but how can she break through that hard shell, and make him give a damn about anything, he is too full of self pity right now, and she is too meek to tell him. One of her first novels, and it shows, but it was nice to finally read Marc's story.
Tori Jones, shy, unassuming bookkeeper with little to no people skills finds herself required to seek the help of mercenary Marc Savin. When Tori shows up in his living room, battered and broken, Marc initially hears her story with disbelief and skepticism. When she finally convinces him that his partner, Alex, is her twin brother and that Alex is alive and needs rescuing, they depart on a dangerous mission to an island controlled by the terrorists that have been trying to break his partner for months. Along the way, both characters must deal with the spark growing between them - and it makes for a great, suspenseful, romance story.
This copy is a Mills and Boon edition. The cover has a different couple than the one shown on the Harlequin Temptation bk.
The mercenary and the coward...
Prim and proper Victoria Jones knew she was a coward-- heck, she'd quit her job at the accounting firm becasue she found tax time too stressful! Only, her nice little job at the auto-parts store, eating bland food and dating nice, predictable men never prepared her for...
Tough, sexy, everything she feared in a man. But he was the one man who could rescue her brother. Besides, Marc owed her-- he'd sent Alec on that dangerous mission. For once in her life, Victoria would do whatever it took to get Marc to help her.
No matter what Marc wanted from her...
Excellent book. Lots of action. Kept you in it the entire time.
