Betrayal. Retribution. Redemption?

Six years ago, tough-as-nails military contractor Bobby Taggart met the woman of his dreams in war-torn Kabul--a sexy, whip-smart war correspondent who approached him at a local bar, took him to bed, made him fall in love...and then mysteriously disappeared. In her wake, the terrorist leader he'd been mining for valuable intel was assassinated--then Bobby discovered his phone had been bugged. And he's pretty damn sure he's been played for a fool.

Now, a covert security mission for the U.S. Embassy in Oman unexpectedly reunites him with Talia Levine, the woman who betrayed him and broke his heart. And there's one more secret she hasn't told him--one that will change his world. But as the heat of anger mixes with a still-simmering passion, dangerous forces close in, their sights set on Talia. Trust is the only way they will survive--but with their lives in the balance, can Bobby risk trusting her again?

Gerard’s fourth One-Eyed Jacks contemporary romantic thriller (after Running Blind), spun off from her popular Black Ops Inc. series, is fast-paced and satisfying. Robert Taggart, once part of a military task force, works as a civilian contractor in Afghanistan. Talia Levine is a beautiful agent for Mossad, the Israeli intelligence agency. She needs information that Taggart possesses and will use every tool in her arsenal to extract it (which she does). Six years later, when Talia faces the most desperate situation of her life, she must turn once again to Taggart, the man she seduced and betrayed. Romantic suspense veteran Gerard is at the top of her game with a determined yet vulnerable heroine and a hero with “a battle-hardened look and clear air of danger,” whose sizzling attraction burns up the page from their first interaction. Their gripping story will make readers seek out Gerard’s other titles. Agent: Maria Carvainis, Maria Carvainis Agency. (Mar.)

Romance: Reluctant hearts

Preventing scandal brings two aristocrats together in Tracy Anne Warren’s Regency romance Happily Bedded Bliss, part of the Rakes of Cavendish Square series. The impetuous Lady Esme Byron happens upon a naked man by a secluded country lake, and she stealthily sketches him while he’s sleeping. When the sensational page in her sketchbook is publicly revealed, the subject is recognized as Gabriel, Lord Northcote, and there is only one solution in the eyes of the Byron family: They must wed. The pair reluctantly agrees. Despite the circumstances, the notorious womanizer and the animal-loving innocent forge a sizzling partnership—until a chance encounter reminds Gabriel that he was made a fool by love once before. He vows to distance himself from Esme before he becomes too attached. It’s too late for his bride, however, and Esme is perplexed by her husband’s remote behavior. Not one to give up, she fights for what she wants: a closeness that will give Gabriel, who never had a loving family, everything he needs, too. This Regency delight is a sexy, charming and satisfying romance.

COWBOY, TAKE ME AWAY
A wounded military man goes home to heal in the first book in Delores Fossen’s McCord Brothers series, Texas on My Mind. After being injured while serving as an Air Force combat rescue officer, Riley McCord returns to Spring Hill, Texas, determined to recuperate. He’s greeted by a bevy of beauties eager to help him during his convalescence, but no one captures his interest like his old friend Claire Davidson—and her interest is piqued, too. But there are reasons to resist. Claire was once Riley’s friend’s girlfriend, and aren’t there rules about that? For her part, Claire has a young son to protect—not to mention her heart. Claire wants a man who will stay, and Riley insists that he’s not in it for the long haul. However, the pair finds it impossible to remain apart, and Claire swears she understands that their relationship is short-term. But will Riley really be able to walk away? This is a rollicking romance that’s both funny and poignant.

An unexpected reunion leads to danger and ultimately love in Taking Fire, part of Cindy Gerard’s One-Eyed Jacks series. Six years ago in Kabul, Afghanistan, military contractor Bobby Taggart bedded Talia Levine, a woman who claimed to be a war correspondent. But she betrayed him, his mission failed, and he was left heartbroken and well aware of the fact that he’d been played. Now working as a covert government operative in Oman, Bobby once again encounters Talia, who has made hard choices for good reasons. Immediately upon reuniting, they find themselves in danger. There’s a target on Talia’s back, and the pair must rely on each other to survive—despite Bobby’s lingering resentment. Bobby brings in his team, but the pressure doesn’t abate as they try to bring down the bad guys. Fast-paced and bristling with tension, Taking Fire is impossible to put down. Nerves will shred as readers root for Bobby and the brave Talia.
