Caught in the Crosshairs

GIVEAWAY
 REES, ELISABETH
CAUGHT IN THE CROSSHAIRS

Special forces, deadly forces

Recruited for a top secret mission, elite sniper Sergeant Cara Hanson is determined to prove herself—as a female sharpshooter—to her commanding officer. But when the assignment goes horribly wrong, Captain Dean McGovern takes their team into hiding in a remote Wyoming cabin. Both fiercely protective, Cara and Dean work overtime to figure out who's leaving notes and taking shots at them. Cara tries hard to resist the more-than-professional feelings she's developing for Dean…and when their lives are on the line, it'll take the soldier in her to keep them both alive.

My Review:

Spectacular debut novel! I am amazed that a Welsh author was able to get into the heart and mind of U.S. military personnel but Rees does an awesome job (from this Canadian amateur's perspective anyway. LOL)

Adore this fresh angle for a Love Inspired Suspense plot. Hello -- female sniper?! Cara is tough as nails, determined to prove she's just as good, if not better, than any male soldier. She's strong and stubborn, intent on correcting a perceived mistake she made in her youth. Her DNA screams protector and that's a refreshing trait switch from hero to heroine.

Problem is Dean has that same protect-at-all-cost DNA marker -- especially where women are concerned. He grapples with accepting Cara has an equal team member even as he reluctantly admires her expertise and professionalism. What a dynamic way to mess with a burgeoning romance.

Mix in plenty of taut action, some hair-raising scenes and a tense plot steeped in betrayal and loss and you get a dynamic romantic suspense.
