    Old flames reunite in a suspenseful espionage adventure

    Amy J. Fetzer weaves an intricate plot, full of imagery, meticulous technical details, varied settings, underground operatives, military intrigues and action.
    The novel starts more like a military thriller than a suspense romance, which usually focuses on the main couple. In Damage Control, nearly all the characters, including subordinate ones, share their point of view and are developed. As Olivia Corrigan and Sebastian Fontenot race for their lives, it becomes a fast-paced suspenseful adventure. I enjoyed this tale of lovers reuniting amid top-secret military covert operations, and rekindling their passion as they team up to rescue a kidnapped mutual friend.

    an action-packed romantic suspense

    Archeologist Olivia Corrigan investigates an ancient Celtic legend. Her research tracks the routes of twelfth century Viking and Chinese traders that lead to the Arctic Circle polar cap where she believes an ancient ship is under the ice.

    However, her efforts turn ugly when people associated with her project begin dying. Apparently, Russian agents want to know the secret of the Celtic legends and are willing to kill to succeed. Dragon One mercenary team assigns her former husband explosives expert Sebastian Fontenot to safeguard the woman he still loves while also trying to rescue from kidnappers a colleague of hers who knows much about legend snatched in his hotel room. As they team up to save the life of the abducted English bookworm scholar from adversaries who cold-bloodedly murdered innocent bystanders in the hotel, Olivia still wonders if she would be safer with the Russians than with her former spouse who she still loves.

    The latest Dragon One (see Fight Fire With Fire and Come as You Are) is an action-packed romantic suspense that circles the globe as Olivia hops seemingly everywhere. The second chance romance starts towards the middle of the story line and enhances the dangerous adventures the lead couple and his cohorts confront. That is the key to this entertaining thriller that never stops for a respite.

    I Also Recommend:

    Dragon One Kicks...Ice!

    If you're a fan of the action/adventure Dragon One series, then you've been eagerly awaiting Sebastian's story. If Fetzer cheats a little by reuniting him with an old love, thus eliminating the chance for the reader to watch the romance develop, well, tough cookies. This, as always, is a tough and gritty world full of near death experiences and that makes Sebastian and Olivia's second chance more precious.

    By choosing an almost old-fashioned Cold War, Iron Curtain enemy, Russia, Fetzer might seem a little removed from our current wars in hotter, desert climes, but she's just reminding us that old style Soviet corruption in government makes them an enemy still to be scrutinized despite smiling presidential photo ops. (Plus, check out her website: all her guys are military so she knows whereof she writes.)

    It's a complex plot full of archaeological digs on the polar ice cap, Celtic myth/legends, and the search for both an ancient ship buried in the ice, and a Russian sub and its crew buried beneath the waves and Russian secrecy and lies. And, man, is it worth the effort keeping up!
    As always Fetzer gives us a lesson in world geopolitics, military hard/software, and another glimpse at all those hunky Dragon One men. Sebastian and Olivia's romance is sexy, their rush to rescue a kidnapped mentor and colleage whose knowledge of the Celtic legend has put him right in the sights of a highly dangerous Russian femme fatale (seriously, crazily fatal!)whose dual goal of finding a legendary artifact and rescuing her submarine commander father's damaged reputation makes her a determined and dangerous foe. Great action that you should share with your husband if he's a reader.

    Fans of thrillers over the years will recall other great books set on the ice like the late great Alistair MacLean's Ice Station Zebra...forget the awesomely awful movie featuring Rock Hudson that had very little to do with the book. And young Australian author Matt Reilly's fantastic Ice Station. Both are worth reading after you finish this latest breathtaking installment in Fetzer's Dragon One series.
