As a Special Forces operative, Aaron Spears treated relationships like Tangos. He’d seen the wreckage of his Task Force brothers' attempts and had no desire to put any woman through the hardship.

Then Celine Latimer walked into his life and turned his world upside down. Celine Latimer thought she’d hit the jackpot when hunky SF operative Aaron Spears asked her to accompany him to the high-profile wedding of Senator Cotter’s daughter. They’d get to spend two weeks together while Aaron pulled guard duty for Caroline Cotter and Celine intended to use every spare minute, seducing the man she’d had a crush on for over a year.  The time and place proved to be more of a barrier than either of them realized. With his commander watching his every move, Aaron couldn’t afford to show any weakness. That meant ignoring Celine. Rejected and hurt, Celine packed to leave only to be caught in a kidnapping plot against the Senator. Here she sat, in a hut in the Middle East, waiting on a rescue that may never come. He'd sworn to protect and he'd failed.

    Intense situations and hot emotion = explosive story… This story continues to have all the elements of this series that I’ve come to love. Strong, hot alpha men, protective (to a fault) Strong, resourceful women who know how to love one way - fiercely Suspense, action, adventure, tension, fear, danger… (whew – yes, all that!) And a love story that hits the hearts of the hero and heroine – and mine… While this could be read as a standalone the stories in this series intersect in a way that reading the Intense situations and hot emotion = explosive story… This story continues to have all the elements of this series that I’ve come to love. Strong, hot alpha men, protective (to a fault) Strong, resourceful women who know how to love one way - fiercely Suspense, action, adventure, tension, fear, danger… (whew – yes, all that!) And a love story that hits the hearts of the hero and heroine – and mine… While this could be read as a standalone the stories in this series intersect in a way that reading the books chronologically means you get the full on effect of each whirlwind outing. Aaron and Celine’s romance carries on from a heart-pounding ending that saw them separated emotionally and then physically… Celine is in love but isn’t going to settle for being second-best, she deserves more. And Aaron just happens to agree with her. It is too bad that neither of them is very happy about that. A fragile flower meets a hard as stone military man? Nope – not at all. Celine is unexpectedly tough despite her vulnerability and seeing Aaron’s gentleness with the women in his life show’s there is a lot more to this tough guy than meets the undiscerning eye. With the battles between them as heated as the war being waged around them, this quick read dove right into each skirmish with an enthusiasm that left me breathless. I wanted this crossover story to be much, much longer…. “I’d like to see him die, but the man who tried to destroy my life isn’t nearly as important to me as the woman that restored it.” Heart flutters…. “I am safe. I’m with you.” “Damn, right you are. I’ll protect you with my life.” Slam dunk…. *** Expanded edition, November 6, 2018 Better the second time around… This is a newly expanded version of Aaron’s Honor, a previous Kindle world title. I loved the story the first time and having more background, more dialogue, more suspense has made this even better the second time around! Aaron is wrestling with guilt on a number of fronts but the loss of Celine has hit him the most. Their brief time together was cut short abruptly right before a kidnapping through the chance for a reconciliation out the window. What followed was a harrowing sequence of events that was full of regret, revenge and a need to right what went horribly wrong… These two just couldn’t seem to catch a break and their way was full of pain and regret. This could have been a romance completely under a dark cloud but the characters and their refusal to give in to the darkness they could simply wallow in, saved it and made it shine… If you’ve read them before, or picking them up for the first time, these new editions are riveting romantic adventure…

    I love a Susan Stoker hero.  When I realized that the Kindle World Special Forces Operation Alpha books had cameos from some of my favorite heroes,  I began snagging them up. What I didn't bank on was the fact that although there was a brief mention of some of the Delta Force guys, the book centered around characters that I wasn't familiar with and I felt lost at times.  It was very evident that I was missing backstories.  The hero,  Aaron, was very wishy-washy.  He was that guy who thought his j I love a Susan Stoker hero.  When I realized that the Kindle World Special Forces Operation Alpha books had cameos from some of my favorite heroes,  I began snagging them up.

Celine was a tough smart girl.   She had been through a lot and couldn't handle any more rejection from Aaron.  It takes her being in danger for him to finally admit to her how he truly feels. --no cheating or ow/om drama --pushing away by hero --not very steamy --no epilogue! ! --HFN ending- would have loved to see where this couple ended up in their lives.  Very disappointed that we didn't get anything This was a decent story,  I am looking into the Men of Mercy series to see if it sounds like something I would like.   Maybe I could get a better understanding of these characters

    The book was sweet as a love story. Aaron and Celine's chemistry was off the charts, evident even in "Ethan's Promise". I did feel Aaron's pain at not being able to tell Celine how he truly felt as well as Celine's determination not to let her circumstances rule her.

But the thing that really put a bad taste in my mouth was the irresponsible way in which Celine's reaction toward Islam and Hijab was portrayed. Muslims and Islam being portrayed in such a way is irresponsible because it is just promoting Islamophobia. This is something that this world does not need in this day and age, because there is enough violence and death around us as it is. What one reads, views or listens to influences the way one thinks. What is practiced by those characters in the book is not Islam and they do not deserve to be called Muslims because violence and mistreatment is not Islamic in any way. I understand that this is the portrayal of a fictional character's view and that they might not be the author's personal view. I don't mean to cause anyone offense through my words but, I don't feel this is a responsible projection especially when within this very series non-Muslim characters are contributing equally to the terrorism and violence being described. Extremism, violence and terrorism has no religion and to give it a religious label is not being fair to anyone. ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.

    Aaron and Celine have a bit of history in past books and in the previous book she was kidnapped after Aaron brought her in as a stylist and bodyguard for Caroline Cotter's wedding. Caroline was basically setup to marry a general by her father and these crazy women of Mercy decided she shouldn't have to marry someone she didn't love. She agreed and off they went. The problem was that Mr. J got to them first.

Caroline was basically setup to marry a general by her father and these crazy women of Mercy decided she shouldn't have to marry someone she didn't love. She agreed and off they went. The problem was that Mr. J got to them first. In this book it's been 2 weeks or so since she has been kidnapped and Aaron is going crazy trying to deal with his emotions about bringing her in on the mission, getting in trouble making out with her while he was supposed to be doing something else and then ignoring her through the wedding. Now Celine and Caroline are alone in Afghanistan and Celine has realized she is expendable. So have the guys and Mr. J. She believes Aaron no longer wants her and he can't figure out why he can't breathe without her. This is the story of how Celine and Caroline "escaped" their kidnappers but not really. You'll have to read it to take the journey. Mr. J has made some mistakes though and now the team has more information to hunt him down. Aaron just has to keep Celine alive while the team hunts for him and the connection between him and Sen.Cotter. I love this series and this is a great novella. I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    This novella continues a storyline that began in another book - The Omega Team: Ethan's Promise (Men of Mercy Book 7).

This novella ends with a cliffhanger. There is violence and hot steamy sex so definitely 18+. Aaron Spears is part of Task Force Scorpion (Men of Mercy series). He takes part in a "babysitting" job to guard a Senator's daughter for her wedding. He has been attracted to Celine Latimer. So when they needed an additional woman on the assignment, he suggested she be the bride's stylist. The job of protecting the Senator's daughter didn't go as planned, and a mortal enemy of the Task Force kidnaps both the Senator's daughter and Celine. Now Aaron and the Task Force are searching in Afghanistan for the two women. Will they find the women? And if they do will Aaron and Celine take a chance on each other and finally give in to their passion? There are plenty of twists and turns in this storyline to keep you reading. As usual, things are not what as what they appeared or as was expected. I really enjoyed this novella even though it ended with a cliffhanger, so I have to wait to see how it is resolved. I'm looking forward to reading more of the Men of Mercy books! I'm hooked on this series.

    This book ties into the Men of Mercy series characters. It is also a bit of a prequel to the former bride, Caroline's story in the Operation Mayhem series.

The heroine, Celine, started her story in the previous book (now titled Rebellious River). It includes her training by Aaron to be Caroline's stylist and bodyguard for her wedding. That led to her being kidnapped at the end of the last book. This book opens a few weeks later as the men are in the Middle East searching for Mr. J and where he has Caroline and Celine, whom he had kidnapped. The story is duel PoV of Aaron and the men working on their mission. Then Celine and her captors. There is suspense and some mystery mixed in with this romance. Aaron feels very guilty for bringing Celine into the mission and very protective of her safety and feelings for what she has gone through. Celine, understandably, has a lot of emotional baggage along with her physical injuries. She is having a hard time with Aaron's hot and cold attitude, even as he has feelings for her and yet wants to give her space to heal. The back and forth pull is sometimes frustrating. This story generally wraps up, but it also leaves clues into the next couple books.

This is another great book in the series and I am loving where all of this is headed! I felt bad for Aaron with losing Celine as it was obvious how much he cared about her but after their night together he was afraid of mixing her in with his crazy life. I knew there was nothing he wouldn't do to get her safe! Celine was a great character and I loved that she never gave up. I was shocked at who initially "rescued" her but also understood that everything was not as it appeared to be! Towards the end I was completely shocked at the turn of events that I was not expecting and I was very happy that Aaron got there in time! The end of the book was filled with action and I loved that everything was worked out! Can't wait for more in the series!

There is still something off with both Mr. J and Caroline still missing. It will take everything Celine and Aaron have to keep her safe because there are double agents everywhere. I really liked Ravished River and it a very addition to the Men of Mercy series and a sweet read.

I can't say much without giving it away but I was not disappointed! It's told from dual POV and it's loaded with action, angst, intrigue and heat too! 4* for this one.

They have off the charts chemistry and such a strong connection. Aaron will do whatever it takes to keep Celine safe. There is action, misunderstandings, and two people who have had things happen in their past that shaped them into who they are today. This was a great storyline with great characters. These are all standalone, but I think you can have a better understanding and enjoyment of read in order.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. This is my honest and voluntary opinion of it.

    So much action for a short story! This book has a lot of action going on for such a short story. I found this story to be entertaining. I enjoyed both the heroine and hero in previous books, so I was happy to finally read their story. Aaron has always seemed like the sweetest in the bunch and after meeting Noni I understand why. I think all readers will fall in love with Noni as much as I have. I was happy the author did a time line flash back for us, it helped me with a when did that happen mome So much action for a short story!

I enjoyed the heroine very much, I also liked that she's was able to handle more than hair color and scissors! If you like quick reads with action, suspense, and some sexy scenes this is a great book to read.

    Aaron and Celine-I love these two together. Before Celine was kidnapped along with the Senator's daughter, Aaron screwed up his relationship with Celine, making her feel like his only motive was to use her and toss her away. Why not?! That's what she'd been used to right?! But Aaron made it his mission to find both the women and to never leave Celine's side again. Celine, being held captive for weeks, survived a terrible ordeal, and proved to be a strong and capable heroine. And I loved how Aaro Aaron and Celine-I love these two together.

Celine, being held captive for weeks, survived a terrible ordeal, and proved to be a strong and capable heroine. And I loved how Aaron was there for her every step of the way. Even though this book focused a lot on trying catch the evil traitor Mr. J and rescuing the kidnapped girls, it was pretty good. The action, danger, and suspense was just enough to keep me intrigued with the story. Two things though: The traitor is still in the wind; the grammatical errors-ugh!

Celine may be all about the pretty things but she is no superficial, saccharine sweet ninny.

    I love this series. These men are dedicated, honorable and love their woman totally. This chapter continues after the abduction of Caroline and Celine. It's action packed, tense, and a complete page turner. The additional words that Ms. Cross has added in this version is totally worth it. You want to reach out and strangle the bad guy and it's quite the journey to do that. If you have never read Ms. Cross before, you will love her!
