Kelly Jacobs has already paid the ultimate price of loving a warrior: She has the folded flag and the grateful thanks of a nation to prove it. Navy SEAL Joe "Bear" Baker can't ask her to accept that risk again -- even though he loves her. But the man responsible for her husband's death is back, closer than either of them realize. Kelly's in danger, and Joe may not get there in time . . . This romantic suspense with its theme of God as refuge provides a firsthand look at life in the military -- where serving God and country create truly Uncommon Heroes.
I thought this would be another fantastic series by Dee Henderson, similar to the O'Malley series, but it was very disappointing. Book 1, True Devotion, was good enough to make me move on but books 2 & 3 were really tough to get through. The final book of the series was probably the best.
Darcy St. James retired from the CIA two years ago with an Intelligence Star for Valor. The cold war was over; she'd won the war. Then September 11 happened. Friends died. And her nation needed her network of contacts and her street smarts back. Darcy is hunting down a man who knew September 11 would happen---and chose to profit by it.
Chief Petty Officer Sam "Cougar" Houston is busy: The intelligence Darcy is generating has his SEAL team deploying around the world. As one of the squad's snipers, he's taking on the enemy one man at a time. And he can't afford to take Darcy's contacts at face value---one of them wants her dead.
Sam and Darcy meet during the first days of the war, and it's a romance neither expected to find. Under the pressure of war, love flourishes. But it may be a short relationship, for the terrorists
have chosen their next targets. . .and Darcy's name is high on the list.
