Untamed and Undercover: Third in the Dark Ops series.
Tech Sergeant Mason "Smooth" Randolph lives to push boundaries. But he never anticipated how far outside the box he would land when an in- flight accident sends him parachuting into Nevada's notorious Area 51- and into the handcuffs of sexy security cop Jill Walczak.
Ever find that one person who just completes you? You can’t explain the attraction and you don’t want to lose the connection. You just want to be with that person. What happens when you’re in the middle of tracking a killer, and the man of your dreams literally drops into your turf? Read Renegade and find out.
There are quite a few authors on my To Be Read list. There are fewer on my Must Buy list. Catherine Mann makes my Must Buy list every time. Her Dark Ops books combine the best of action and adventure with romance. Renegade doesn’t disappoint.
I like a story with flyboys. Loadmasters are great. Don’t know what I’m talking about? It has to do with the air force. Mason, the hero, is a sexy Loadmaster. But when he’s in the middle of a test run and things go awry, he’s got to bail. I like a guy who knows what he wants. Mason’s got that and manners to boot. How can you not love him?
Jill, the heroine, is searching for a killer. Four men have perished in Area 51 (yes, we’re talking alien country). When Mason lands on her turf, she’s got another issue on her hands - her attraction to him.
I like the back and forth between Jill and Mason. You can see how much they want each other even when they are driving each other nuts. The fact that they can answer each other’s questions is sexy and fun. But the little subplots and the background characters keep you attention and remind you what a close-knit group these flyboys and girls are.
And the love scenes? Whew! You’ll think you’re right there. They are so sweet, yet sensual. You won’t want the heat to end.
If you want a story that will stay with you long after you close the book, then you need to read Renegade.
