Date Read: October 2012

Genre: Romance, Suspense

Ghost Ops--a small unit of super-elite soldiers so secret only two men know of their existence. Ostensibly betrayed by their commanding officer while on an anti-terrorist mission, the team is massacred. Only three survive, and find themselves framed and disgraced. But en route to the court martial, they escape . . . and disappear.Beautiful, brilliant and determined, Dr. Catherine Young is on a mission to find a man who has vanished into thin air. Walking into a high-tech hideaway bearing a critical message for "Mac" McEnroe, team leader of the betrayed Ghost Ops force, is the most dangerous thing she has ever done. The soldier she encounters is frightening and suspicious, but her senses reveal the man underneath: Tough, honorable, and so breathtakingly masculine Catherine feels weak in his presence. Catherine has a gift that enables her to see into the heart of othersβ€”and looking into Mac's is like staring into the very heart of danger itself.

Fall Funk Reviews (Quick and Dirty because I am in a Review Writing Funk)

First Thought when Finished: Heart of Danger was a great start to a new series that hit my romantic suspense with a twist sweet spot.

What I Thought of the Story: Heart of Danger was an excellent beginning to a new series! I really enjoyed this world that Lisa Marie Rice created. It was an interesting mix of future with a feeling of realism. I liked how all the “outcasts” came together and created a place that was safe/thriving. The suspense was just the right amount of action and planning. The “guys” were a good combo of smarts/brawn and that showed in the follow through of the story.

What I Thought of the Characters: This is going to sound somewhat contradictory: I loved all the side characters but wasn’t in love with the main couple (rating based on them). Since this is a romantic suspense, let me start with the main couple: Mac and Catherine. Individually, I loved both of them. Mac was smart, tough, loyal, and scarred. Catherine was smart, headstrong, and held her own. I just didn’t “fall in love” along with them. That being said, I liked them together. I really found myself wanting to know more about all the side characters and can’t wait for this series to continue!

Final Thought: The Ghost Ops series by Lisa Marie Rice will end up on my auto-buy list because I really did enjoy this brand new world!

  1. I’ve done that! Loved the side characters so much more than the MC’s. Very strange feeling when that happens. But a hot and patriotic cover really helps assuage the pain, right?

  2. You know the secondary characters in this genre can save a book for me. Oh and enjoying the cover. Shouldn’t all solders look like that when they are standing for inspection… well, when we inspect the troops? πŸ˜‰

  3. Well hello there gorgeous cover! *pets screen* I’m thinking this is going to be a good series for me Felicia! I’m a little bummed you didn’t fall in love with the main couple, but I’m glad you at least liked them well enough to enjoy their story overall. I’m super excited about the secondary characters though, I love when they’re strong, especially when I know I’ll be getting their books later in the series:)
