From USA Today bestselling author Katie Reus comes the next story in the explosive Redemption Harbor series where sparks fly and so do bullets…
The one woman he wants…
When a childhood friend needs help, Nova doesn’t hesitate. They endured the foster system together, forging a bond Nova can’t ignore. Relying on her friends from Redemption Harbor Consulting—including Gage, the computer genius she’s falling for—is out of the question. She used to work for the CIA and she’s trained—she can handle this. Besides, the whole team is working on their own important jobs. She’s not going to drag anyone away when she’s not sure it’s necessary.
Is the one he can’t have…
When Nova asks for time off out of the blue—and use of the company jet—former Marine Gage takes note. Of course, he notices everything about Nova. But as one of her bosses, his growing attraction to her is a line he won’t cross. However, that doesn’t mean he’ll let her run straight into danger—and a quick hack of her computer proves she’s gotten in over her head. Gage is coming along for the ride, whether the sassy assistant likes it or not. He’ll do whatever’s necessary to save her friend…and keep Nova out of the clutches of a lethal enemy who won’t hesitate to kill anyone who gets in their way.
Author note: This is a stand-alone novel in the Redemption Harbor series complete with an HEA and no cliffhanger.
Hunting Danger is the 5th installment of the Redemption Harbor series; you can read this as a stand alone! Gage and Nova’s story really doesn’t even take place in Redemption Harbor and most of the previous characters are just background.
Nova’s best friend is in trouble and needs help. Nova plans to go to Montana and help her friend, but Gage isn’t going to let her go alone. However, they don’t actually make it safely and struggle to get to Nova’s friend’s aid. Then there is the real problem of getting her friend away from her crazy fiancee! Even with Nova’s CIA background, she never could have helped Layla on her own. If Gage hadn’t been there, she would have died for sure! The danger is very real and I enjoyed that aspect a great deal.
Gage was a bit frustrating because he loves Nova but won’t do anything. He feels that she is far too good for him, that he can’t cross that line because he is kind of her boss, blah blah blah. I’m really over men who play the martyr. You love her, she loves you-everything else can be managed. Instead, Gage makes them both sad and miserable by denying their feelings. Ugh! Men!
Gage’s irritating man behavior aside, I loved the plot of the story. Lots of action keeps the story propelling forward and you are just along for the ride! Hunting Danger is one of those romantic suspense books that I love-nice balance between danger and romance, and real life danger.
