The members of a top secret SEAL Team can’t keep their passion under wraps in this thrilling contemporary romantic suspense series from New York Times bestselling author Monica McCarty.
Like Rome’s Lost Legion, a SEAL platoon goes on a mission and vanishes without a trace.
After walking into a trap on a covert op in Russia, the men from top secret SEAL Team Nine are presumed dead. Not knowing whom they can trust, and with war hanging in the balance, the survivors must go dark and scatter around the globe.
Marine ecologist Annie Henderson joins her new boyfriend on a trip to the Western Isles of Scotland to protest a hazardous offshore drilling venture. When she realizes that she may be swept up in something far more dangerous than she’d intended, there is only one man she can turn to. . . .
She and the mysterious but sexy dive boat captain haven’t exactly gotten off to the best start, but something about his quiet confidence makes her think that he’s the kind of man she can depend on. Because he’s gruff and guarded, she can tell Dan Warren has secrets. But she could never imagine how high the stakes are for him to keep his cover, even as he risks everything to protect her. . . .
Going Dark my Monica McCarty has a lot going on! It’s thrilling and mysterious, it will make you anxious and swoony. You will try to put all the pieces together while praying for the best.
Go dark. Don’t do anything to risk your cover.
Dean (aka Dan) is a SEAL in hiding. The beginning of the story gives us his background, pay close attention because we meet a lot of people that you will want to remember further down the road. I had a hard time keeping up.
When he meets Annie you can just tell it’s going to be nothing but trouble. The stuff that she’s involved in can’t be good and he should have just walked away. The two immediately bump heads but neither backs down.
He’d never met a woman who gave him shit the way she did.
Their situation reminded me of the movie Speed with Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock – the strong physical attraction when faced with danger. I kept seeing Jack in my head saying “I have to warn you, I’ve heard relationships based on intense experiences never work.” LMAO Yet that wasn’t the case here. They both struggle with their feelings, in that they DO NOT want to be feeling anything for one another, it’s kind of mutual that way. But they were just so good together…
Nothing could have been more perfect. Their eyes met and there was no mistaking the connection or the emotion. It was right there between them. So palpable she could almost touch it. And there was nothing casual about it.
Their whirlwind adventure will have you on the edge of your seat. Pay close attention to everything that happens because their story is just the beginning of what I’m sure will be a thrilling series from Monica McCarty!!
