His name is Merc.
He has no past.
Only a thirst for revenge against the traitor who betrayed his team and his country – Agent Jack Mankel.
When he’s handed a mission to rescue a sitting US senator’s daughter from the traitor’s clutches, Merc jumps at his chance for vengeance, never dreaming the girl he rescued could be his downfall…
She walks in the night.
She is a shadow.
An operative so elite even the president doesn’t know of her existence.
Her whole life, she’s lived to serve, raised in the black-ops team her father, Jack Mankel, created. Then her whole world is turned upside down when she learns the sister she once thought dead is really alive; and to save her, Nightshade will have to take on the hardest mission of her life…
Merc knows he doesn’t deserve her. Nightshade knows she can’t have him. But a connection so powerful neither of them can resist draws them closer, even as a betrayal so deep threatens to destroy their very existence.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book
This book picks up a month after the events in the previous book. The TF-S team is rescuing Caroline Cotter who Mr. J kidnaped, but little do they know that it isnt really Caroline.
Ok so many things!! First, this is Merc’s book and we don’t know much about him other than Mr.J really screwed him over, more so than the rest of the team I think. Second, you don’t really wanna feel for the enemy but God I can’t help it!! Nightshade is Mr. J’s daughter, well she think she and Caroline are really his because that is the lie that she has been told all her life. That Caroline’s father kidnapped her and killed their mother when they were babies, when in fact it was the other way around but she doesn’t know that.
Nightshade and Merc fall for each other, but she hates herself for it because she is just pretending to be her sister and knows that once everyone finds out who and what she really is they will hate her for it, but she is there to do a job and get out.
There’s just so many levels of hair pulling in this book!! Lol!! You tug a little bit because you see these two falling, you really pull hard and wanna throw the book because you know she’s the enemy’s daughter but you see that she isn’t as bad as him, and finally you just rip it out because you just wanna slap them both; him for not realizing she’s the enemy and her for not realizing the lie she’s been living.
I love that we finally learn more about Merc, that we get to see the rest of the team again, and that things in the end turn out better than predicted. I can’t wait to see the team get Caroline back, the real one, and Mr. J get his comeuppance.
