All the adventures in the three books of The Hunted miniseries have been packed with dangerous threats, and the peril in the last story repeatedly takes a deadly turn. There are also plenty of tricky circumstances that must be dealt with correctly by the hero and heroine or justice may never be served. SPECIAL OPS EXCLUSIVE has everything you could want in a romantic suspense story. It has bad guys, plenty of secrets, lots of emotional altercations and powerful desire. Elle Kennedy writes from the heart and creates an enthralling novel.
Did the American government betray his Special Ops team and if true, who was responsible? These are the questions that Nick Prescott wants answered, and he has come to the country of Cortega in order to hopefully get the actual facts from an informant. He and two other Air Force soldiers have been hiding out for almost a year, and he wants this episode in his life to be over. A demonstration related to a recent election is taking place in the capital city, and although Nick is trying to stay clear of the huge crowd, he jumps in to rescue a female reporter who gets caught up in the violent mass of people.
Although Rebecca Parker will tackle any situation where she believes a news story needs to be reported, the TV journalist did find herself in trouble and is grateful to the handsome American who helped her. She comes to the conclusion there is also something about Nick that justifies her questioning him further, and they do talk for a short spell. When it comes time to leave, he emphatically tells her to forget about their time together and not to say anything about meeting him. The reporter in Rebecca cannot leave her doubts about Nick alone, and her inquiry brings threats into both their lives.
The bravely fearless heroine of SPECIAL OPS EXCLUSIVE certainly ruffles the generally calm nature of the hero, and this leads to numerous exchanges packed with intense emotional outbursts. Elle Kennedy has brought two individuals together whose extremely different personalities cause captivating scenes. While Rebecca does swap ideas with Nick, she is also remarkably good at instigating a course of action on her own and may not always follow the directions given to her. But I must say, while she does not always think through what she is going to do and its possible consequences, she can improvise on the spot and never gives up. Rebecca is a courageous woman whom I came to really admire. As for Nick, I have respected him from the moment he was met in the first book because of his outstanding personal traits. A true gentleman who is courteous and thoughtful, he also has a daring side and does what is required if needed. The relationship between Nick and Rebecca definitely starts off rocky, as their dissimilar views result in much friction. This does not keep their conversations from being smartly intelligent, and a number of their comments are very clever. While they may not always agree on what path to take, even when it comes to the sexual awareness of the other, there are some feelings they just cannot ignore. When they finally explore their desire, heatedly explosive responses are quickly ignited. Since this is the final book in the trilogy, ongoing secrets are ultimately exposed while other surprising revelations come to light. Nick and Rebecca are continuously being sought, and the uncertainty of when they will be threatened upped my immersion in the story. SPECIAL OPS EXCLUSIVE perfectly combines gripping conspiracies with steamy passion. An exceptional ending to The Hunted miniseries.

Three teenage girls saw something horrendous while they were runaways, and they never told any of the facts to anyone. Yet someone does realize they know too much, and these unidentified individuals do not want the truth exposed even fifteen years later. Plenty of suspense makes the first book of the Buried Secrets trilogy constantly riveting, while the opposing views of the main characters draw you into their increasingly conflicted lives. FATAL EXPOSURE has perilous threats that result in impulsive decisions and heart-pounding moments.
A recent picture in a Baltimore newspaper sets a chain of events in motion which have far-reaching consequences. Although he is a cold-case detective, Parker McCall has never been able to find the woman he thinks is connected to the murder of his brother. But when he sees a picture of the famous photojournalist, B. K. (“Brynn”) Elliot, whose work pertains to those who live on the streets, he feels his search could almost be over.
While her photos are well-known, Brynn has kept her identity hidden because of an incident that occurred fifteen years ago when she was a young runaway. Now she fears the nameless persons who know her secret will come looking for her. When Parker manages to catch up with her, he has to keep reminding himself to think of her as a suspect and not someone who is vulnerable. Brynn does offer the detective some answers, yet neither is sure just how truthful the other is being or if important details are still being concealed.
FATAL EXPOSURE is one of those books where I accepted every aspect as being true, because there is believability is each detail written by Gail Barrett. When Ms. Barrett creates a scene, any emotions are genuine while the action is credible. Her characters are also very realistic with true-to-life responses, especially those of Parker and Brynn. These two have such mixed feelings about the other when they meet, and their opinions continuously change as they spend more time together. There are many uncertainties in both their lives, and these unknowns cause a number of doubts to keep popping up and make them wonder if trust can ever be freely given. Ms. Barrett gives much insight into the lives of this couple, and several of their reactions are definitely touching since the reasons are packed with realism. A few times, I was deeply moved because of adept writing by the author, as I could visualize all too well what was being heartbreakingly described. It takes a skilled writer to affect me so profoundly, and Ms. Barrett does so quite a few times. There is much tension between Parker and Brynn, and their sexual craving for the other is often what drives up the stress. Sincere feelings are behind any physical expressions of longing, and their desire seems openly honest. The danger that comes into the lives of this couple could often turn deadly in an instant, and sometimes surprising truths are also disclosed. I never knew what would happen or who would be involved, and this made the whole story totally entertaining. A friend of Brynn gets her story told next, and I cannot wait. FATAL EXPOSURE is an enthralling story of dangerous intrigue and intense passion.

As a reporter, Marni Claire is looking for the story that will catapult to the top of her field. She thinks she has just the thing when a lead leads her to the Midnight Special, a train traveling from one side of the country to the other. The witness with the information to the crime involving corruption, arson and murder is traveling on that train. She is so determined she even takes a berth which she is not absolutely sure is hers. Whens eh wakes in the arms of her witness, Marnie is not sure what to think.
FBI Special Agent Hunter can’t believe when he finds the beautiful woman in his arms. He also can’t believe he agreed to share the cabin with her. Must be that medication he is taking after his last accident. At any rate, the trip is long, the cabin is small and there is enough heat being generated to heat the whole train when they find the night is better together.
The whole premise of the Midnight Special was amazing – two people in close quarters with a sexual attraction that built and built until it exploded. Hunter and Marni just could not control that heat and when they finally came together it was a beautiful thing to read. Hunter was quite snarky but it covered his true. Marni was able to see past that gruff exterior. How she settles their difference suited them both to a tee.
Hope on for the cross country ride and prepare yourself for some heat, some fun and some beautiful romance. How can you go wrong with Midnight Special by Tawny Weber? Answer: You cannot!!
