Kaden Marks was a former sergeant in the Marine Special Forces. He’s now a member of the Atrati. A black-ops mercenary organization that specializes in doing what no one else can. Kaden’s latest mission is to rescue another undercover agent whose cover has been blown. When he discovers that the agent is Rachel Gannon, the woman he swore to love forever ten years ago but left to protect, his world is rocked.
Rachel will not leave until her friend is safe and her mission completed. No matter the cost to herself. Whether it be her life to the enemy or her heart to Kaden.
The chemistry between Rachel and Kaden puts the heat in Heat Seeker. They do their fair share of steaming up the tent and anywhere else they are alone. An intricate and action-packed storyline backs up their romance. While I think Kaden made a mistake being so hard on himself and so insistent that he needed to push everyone in his life away without explanation to them, I was happy to see him reconnect with Rachel. They clearly had unfinished business between them. Rachel could have handled anything Kaden had to give from the beginning. He underestimated what a tough woman she is. Two happily-ever-afters makes Heat Seeker twice as good. Wyatt and Neil’s poignant reconciliation is heartfelt and passionate. Fans of M/M romance will love their angst-filled story as well.
