The Edge of Courage (Red Team)
Step into Elaine Levine's exciting new series of alpha warriors--products of the government's secret corps of assassins called the Red Team:
Haunted by memories he cannot reach, stalked by an enemy bent on revenge . . .
Rocco Silas has come home to Wyoming after long years as a Red Team operative in Afghanistan. It isn't easy returning to civilian life, especially burdened as he is with a staggering case of PTSD or hunted as he is by an enemy determined to seek an eye-for-eye--neither of which can he battle until he confronts the truth of what happened one fateful day in the high mountain ranges of the Hindu Kush.
. . . She alone holds the key to his sanity.
Mandy Fielding's dream of opening a therapeutic riding center on her family's ranch is almost within her grasp--until she hires Rocco Silas, a dangerous ex-Spec Ops friend of her brother's. His haunted eyes and passionate touch promise a love she never dared believe possible. Can they confront the truth of his past and build a future together or will the enemy stalking him destroy them both?
Length: Approximately 367 pages
Ages: 18 & up (story contains sex, profanity, and violence)
The Edge of Courage (Red Team) is the first book in a serialized story that is expected to include nine installments. I highly recommend you read this series in order!
[#7 - pretty far fetched premise but has a lot of good reviews.]
Things aren’t going Madelyn Li’s way. Her bodyguard agency is teetering on the brink of bankruptcy, her grandmother keeps hatching plots to marry her off, and someone is trying to kill her latest client. All she wants is to safely escort thriller writer and former CIA agent Carter Devlin on his cross country book tour and collect her check, but two obstacles stand in her way: a shadowy assailant and her growing attraction to her dashing client.
Carter Devlin has agreed to accept the beautiful and determined Ms. Li as a bodyguard primarily to appease his publisher. After all, who would want to kill a beat-up, retired ex-spy on a book tour? But when the attacks turn deadly, he soon learns there’s more to Madelyn than a pretty face and tempting body. Will the spark become a flame before a killer snuffs it out?
[#16 - another one with a far fetched premise. Hard to tell much from the reviews. Only one shows as an Amazon Verified Purchase, one is a vine review, and a third admits to being an advance reviewer. Just a suspicious pattern of reviews.]
Free From Stackpole.
Stackpole puts a book or two up for free periodically, lately every couple of days. I have read several of their free books. Some interesting stuff. Most of what I have seen is WWII German military history, with varying quality of translation, some other military history from lesser known units, along with some fishing and other outdoors oriented books.
Lincoln at Peoria: The Turning Point
To understand President Abraham Lincoln, one must understand the extraordinary antislavery speech Lincoln delivered at Peoria, Illinois, on October 16, 1854. This three-hour address marked the turning point in Lincoln's political pilgrimage, dramatically altering his political career and, as a result, the history of America. Though historians and biographers have noted its importance, Lincoln's speech at Peoria has not received the attention it deserves. Lehrman offers a complete examination of the speech that changed the course of our nation.
[I cannot imagine anyone wanting to listen to a 3 hour speech by a politician.]
