The explosively passionate new Deadly Ops novel from Katie Reus, the New York Times bestselling author of Edge of Danger.

After being wounded in action, NSA agent Nathan Ortiz comes home to Miami, eager to return to duty. But he doesn't expect his newest mission to lead him straight to the one woman he loved, lost, and has never gotten over.

A beautiful, successful restaurateur, Amelia Rios enjoys giving back to her community, especially to struggling women. Then a woman she recently hired stops showing up for work, and, unfortunately, she isn’t the first to go missing.

Soon Amelia finds herself thrust into a shadowy, dark world, working side by side with Nathan, the only man she’s ever loved. They must confront old feelings as they battle a ruthless enemy preying on the poor and weak. The heat simmering between Nathan and Amelia could mean a second chance for them—but first they have to survive.

Another solid book in the Deadly Ops series.

Nathan never expected to see Amelia again, but when he finds that there’s a connection between some missing women and the only woman he’s ever loved, he’s floored.

Amelia left Nathan and never gave him an explanation why. At seventeen years old, she was afraid, hurting, and unsure of what to do. But now, at nearly thirty, when he waltzes back into her life, she isn’t letting him go again. Even if it means humbling himself.

Nathan is undercover with the NSA to find out why women have gone missing. His first and only love is somehow connected. But is she involved with the bad guys, or is it just coincidence?

The mystery of why women are being taken is a new one to me! I won’t spoil it, but wow, crazy. And once Amelia and Nathan begin to work together, more than just this mission begins to come to light. There is nothing slow-burn about these two. They smoke up the pages and burn down the room with the sparks they’re giving off.

But how can they be together if Nathan still doesn’t know why she left him? Amelia knows she’ll have to tell him, but she also knows he’ll leave her once he finds out the truth. She grabs the time she does have with him and makes the most of it…

Until she becomes one of the missing women.

With time running out, Amelia’s life is in danger, her cover is blown, and Nathan is going crazy that he can’t get to her.

This series has been a hit from the get-go. I’ve loved each book, and I hope we see more of the team.  For fantastic and action-packed Romantic Suspense, you can’t go wrong with a Katie Reus book.
