She walked away once… When ER nurse Kristi Chang met former Army Ranger Malik Jones in Antarctica eighteen months ago, they agreed to sex with no strings. She had no idea that Malik would turn out to be the most fun she’d ever had. Or that a big, bad soldier could be so sweet. Or that she would still be thinking of him more than a year later.

She had no idea that Malik would turn out to be the most fun she’d ever had. Or that a big, bad soldier could be so sweet. Or that she would still be thinking of him more than a year later. Now working with an international aid organization in Nigeria, Kristi regrets letting him go. When gunmen suddenly attack and tear her from her medical unit and force her at gunpoint to care for their leader, she knows she’ll have to use her wits if she wants to stay alive. She warns her captors that she’s married to a Ranger named Malik who will kill any man who touches her. If only that were true… Now he’ll do anything to free her… Malik hasn’t forgotten a single incredible moment he spent with Kristi. When he gets the news that she’s been abducted, he is gutted and wants to get Cobra’s guns into the fight to free her. A veteran of more than a few rescues, he knows only too well how brutal captivity can be for a woman and wants to get her out of there as soon as possible. But the State Department decides to let local authorities handle the situation and gives Cobra a different assignment, leaving Malik no choice but to quit the job he loves to go after Kristi himself. But locating her in an area bigger than the state of Texas and freeing her from a band of ruthless killers by himself isn’t going to be easy. But the threat is greater than they realize… When Malik appears out of nowhere and saves her life, Kristi thinks she’s dreaming. As she recovers from her ordeal, the heat between them once again flares into passion. This time, however, it’s not just about lust and physical pleasure. Their hearts are on the line. But in rescuing Kristi, Malik has kicked the proverbial hornet’s nest, unleashing the wrath of a ruthless criminal organization bent on revenge. It will take all of their strength and skill to survive—and turn this second chance at romance into the love of a lifetime.

    Another exciting entry in this series. After the unusual trip to Antarctica, PC returns to the "normal" world of terrorists and other evil people. The plot is fairly straight-forward, but the details are unique and entertaining. First off, there is no "will they, won't they" build up to the relationship.

Kristi goes from a kitten to a tiger, and it's a lot of fun for the reader. There may only be one more character left in the Cobra team. Either way, this has been a great series.

    When Kristi Chang and Malik Jones had their not-so-secret fling in Antarctica in Thor Issaksen's book (the previous one), I easily dismissed this couple as a frivolous pastime (and never as protagonists of their own story) to be ignored. I'm glad to be proven wrong here, in 'Hard Pursuit'. Pamela Clare brings the action to Nigeria, following up from 'Hard Line' where it was mentioned that Kristi was making her way to Nigeria, leaving Malik doubtful and concerned for her safety. Many months later, When Kristi Chang and Malik Jones had their not-so-secret fling in Antarctica in Thor Issaksen's book (the previous one), I easily dismissed this couple as a frivolous pastime (and never as protagonists of their own story) to be ignored. I'm glad to be proven wrong here, in 'Hard Pursuit'. Pamela Clare brings the action to Nigeria, following up from 'Hard Line' where it was mentioned that Kristi was making her way to Nigeria, leaving Malik doubtful and concerned for her safety. Many months later, the memory of their time together remains strong and upon learning Kristi's abduction by Nigerian bandits, Malik doesn't hesitate to play saviour in a mission that puts his entire career on the line. With a straightforward plot, the spotlight falls on Kristi/Malik as a couple whose strong personalities help carry the story, who are solidly written as characters who are resourceful, quick-thinking and full of chutzpah; their easy camaraderie and determination never to give up on each other throughout made 'Hard Pursuit' a joy to go through without the bumps of having to deal with TSTL moments (thankfully missing here). My only complaint is the somewhat easy and quick way it was all resolved: when Kristi and Malik find themselves in an unsolvable bind, resolution and saving grace come from the Cobra team who insert themselves just at the right time, and a somewhat 'offline' end to the whole conflict driven by a very large cartel that's got its fingers spread around the world in human trafficking. But it's this wrap-up that enables Clare to deliver a satisfying HEA all around with all loose-ends tied up and a glimpse into a future between a brilliant couple I never thought I could like at first .

    The romance of Malik and Kristi started in the previous book. But when the Cobra guys left Antarctica they left it at no strings. But in the eighteen months since neither could stop thinking about the other so when Kristi is taken by a ruthless gang of trafficker's in Nigeria, Malik would risk anything to save her - including his job with Cobra. Action, suspense, tons of peril with a great romance. Another exciting book in the Cobra Elite series. The romance of Malik and Kristi started in the previous book.

    Action, edge of your seat suspense, and oh so sexy. Kristi and Malik are fated to meet again after Antarctica. Malik rushes on his own to Nigeria to save Kristi from a kidnapping by a very dangerous group of traffickers, drug dealers and evil personified. They didn’t want strings, but are finding out they like being attached!

I thought the Cobra Elite end with Thor and Samantha's story. With this book, I think only Lev who has not a book. I'm not a big fan of Kristi & Malik in the previous book. All I remember is that they hook up with no string. Fast forward to 18 months later. Malik still running around with the Cobra team, while Kristi has a contract as a volunteer RN in Nigeria. After getting to know them better, I like Kristi. She is a true nurse who likes to save people, caring, and giving medical aid to people in need. She thinks that work as a volunteer in a third world country is more adventurous than being a nurse in the hospital. In a big hospital, the people in need of medical attention has to think about the money, insurance policy, politic, etc, while in the least developed countries she could help them without so much thinking of insurance, politic, etc even though with so minimum kit. While she works at a refugee camp, she is abducted by the bandits who force her and take her to their camp to tend for their leader. This news reaches Malik and he just jumps onto a plane to rescue her without Cobra's help. Actually, Elizabeth and David help him. After Antarctica, Asia, Afganistan, and Venezuela, the author takes the reader to explore Africa. I can imagine the savannah, the lions, crocodiles, and other wildlife in Africa. The romance and suspense portion are in balance and I'm glad that Kristi is not a damsel in distress and she could handle herself. I hope there is another book with another place. Maybe in Europe?

While most of the books in this series tie together well, this one ties to the last one exceptionally well as both main characters were in it. I liked Kristi and Malik in the last book, but you knew their no strings sex fest was going to get sticky. I honestly didn't think they would stick to it and was sad to hear in this one that they did. They were good together, but while both thought of the other, it wasn't enough for actual contact. Kristi really seemed like she was having fun doing her jo While most of the books in this series tie together well, this one ties to the last one exceptionally well as both main characters were in it. I liked Kristi and Malik in the last book, but you knew their no strings sex fest was going to get sticky. I honestly didn't think they would stick to it and was sad to hear in this one that they did. They were good together, but while both thought of the other, it wasn't enough for actual contact. Kristi really seemed like she was having fun doing her job in Africa, despite it being harsh conditions and hard work. When things suddenly go wrong for Kristi I liked that she used advice from Malik to keep her calm and give her a way to act tough when dealing with these crazy people. But it was Malik's reaction that I really loved. He pushed his way to his boss, demanded that he do something and when that wasn't enough, was like, well then I'll do it myself. Malik in Africa trying to save Kristi then became a game of luck, both good and bad. He had some good luck in finding her and saving her, then the two of them had bad luck getting out of the country. It seemed like they flowed from one bad situation to another, sometimes with an assist from a helper. It only at the end when it looked like the end of the line where things really came together. Kristi became a commando and did the saving, or enough of it for the Cobra guys to get there to really save the day. I liked how things went from there for Kristi and Malik, there was no see ya later, only I'm not going to let you go and we are going to build a life, and boy did they!

    "I request permission to take an immediate leave of absence, sir." Tower glared at him. "You think you can go after her alone? Request denied." Malik knew what he had to do. He stood, cutting off whatever Tower had been about to say. "You'll have my resignation within the hour." Yes, Malik was going to save Kristi on his own, if that's what he had to do. Kristi was on a nursing assignment in a country that Malik had warned her the dangers. Even so, he had to try to get her back.

Kristi didn't really think someone would come for her when she was taken hostage by bandits. She hoped, yes, but not really believed. She definitely didn't think Malik would show up - without the back up of Cobra. I love Malik and Kristi's story. I was looking forward to it and Pamela Clare exceeded my expectations. (Yet again!)

    I couldn't put it down ! I love this series. Pamela Clare has taken us around the world with the Cobra team fighting the bad guys. Hard Pursuit is a nail biter that I read it in one sitting. I couldn't leave Malik and Kristi ! Despite not seeing each other for over a year, when Malik found on that Kristi was in trouble he didn't hesitate to bring her home. They matched up well. They were both smart , strong and willing to do what it takes to save the other. I think the author does a great job bri I couldn't put it down ! I love this series.

They were running through a jungle, sleeping in mud huts and traversing over rivers with a train right behind them. I'm so glad we were able to see these two getting their much deserved HEA.

    tw: kidnapping, violence, mentions of human and sex trafficking lol I thought I already finished this but guess not This book definitely feels more suspenseful than the previous books, I'm not sure why because all the books have pretty high stakes. I was at the edge of my seat the whole time. I love how Malik and Kristi were catching feels but neither of them told the other (no strings after Antartica!!! nyeh) until Kristi got kidnapped and Malik went to solo-rescue her.

    Wow! Another great read in the Cobra Elite series by Pamela Clare. I absolutely loved it! Fast paced, suspenseful, action and hot romance! Malik and Kristi had a no strings attached relationship that ended 18 months ago. Now Kristi is abducted and Malik immediately goes after her to save her from the bad guys. That’s when the action starts. I highly recommend this book, although it can be perfectly read as a standalone it’s reccomended to read the whole series so you get to know the characters. Def Wow!

    I really enjoyed this book. The hero and heroine didn't seem to have a finished story when they were intron Hard Line and I'm glad they got their own book. Not only a love story, but informative as well; learning about other parts of the world, things going on that aren't in our daily lives, even eye opening at times. I loved the way both characters played to their strengths in the book by relying on each other, but also by never giving up. Great read! I really enjoyed this book.

    The Cobra Elite series is terrific - a blend of suspense and romance with e a great group of alpha heroes. (I love the I-Team series and the Colorado High Country series as well). This is Malik and Kristi's book, both who were in Book 5, Hard Line. Set in Nigeria, Malik comes to Kristi's rescue when she is kidnapped by a rogue group. Both the h and H are strong people and are a great couple you root for the whole way. Lots of action!

    An exciting an edge of your seat story about an RN and her ex-Ranger hero braving the wicked and lawlessness of some areas in Nigeria. Kidnapping, running, hiding, torture and murders around every corner. Feel the love and melting passion between them and enjoy an entertaining story.
