    Vivid story, excellent storytelling

    Having never read a novel by Catherine Mann, and having had a recent streak of rotten luck trying unfamiliar authors, I was hesitant to read Mann¿s Code of Honor. I was pleasantly surprised by how quickly I came to care for Mann¿s main characters. Even better, her narrative was so vivid I had little trouble picturing the events unfolding in my mind. Her knowledge of the military way of life and its equipment added realism to her story that many authors would have been able to pull off as well. No unending techno-babble to prove research was done, just enough detail to get the point across and add to the plot ¿ not distract from it. The complex friendship between main characters Joe Greco and Brigid Wheeler keeps you turning the page as they sort through their feelings for each other, their past, a dangerous mission and a heartbreaking betrayal. If you enjoy a good, romantic page-turner, I recommend Catherine Mann¿s Code of Honor. I¿m now looking forward to reading other novels she¿s written!

    Catherine Mann strikes gold with Code of Honor!

    This book is action packed from beginning to end with truly believable characters that you adore from the start. Who doesn't love a tall, dark and extraordinarily loyal man like Capt. Joe 'Face' Greco or a real, 'puts it on the line' sort of woman like Brigid Wheeler? This is Catherine Mann at her best. There are so many twists and turns, truly scary bad guys that made me frightened to turn the page, and a cast of characters that will have you yelling, 'When's so and so going to get his book?' This book is most definitely a keeper. If you're looking for a hot summer read that will have you on the edge of your seat one minute, and fanning yourself the next - rush to the store, fire up your Internet connection - do what you have to do, and get this book. Though I warn you, you may have to call in sick or take a vacation day because you won't want to put it down!

    Fantastic

    Two years ago in Iraq, Green Beret Cooper Scott and his squad were trapped under hostile fire even as his wife World Weekly photojournalist Brigit Wheeler, in country on assignment, knows her beloved is dead. Captain Joe ¿Face¿ Green tries to rescue his best friend, but fails. Not long afterward Brigit quit her job...................... Two years later, widow Brigit enjoys her leisure life at Ft. Walton Beach, Florida though she still misses her spouse. Joe has been there for her helping her make her adjustment that much easier. Though feeling guilt, Brigit is attracted to Joe, but he shows no indication that he reciprocates. In fact he has loved Brigit from the moment Cooper introduced them to each other, but out of respect for his pal never acted on his deep regard. As they begin to show their strong feelings, they learn that Cooper lives....................... CODE OF HONOR lives up to its title as the lead couple try not to act on their attraction and admiration for one another out of deference to the fallen hero whose has his own guilt to deal with when it comes to his wife. Loaded with action, a vile villain, and a terrific romance, fans of suspense thrillers will enjoy this fine tale and look forward to Catherine Mann¿s next novel, the Captive Returns.....................

    Code of Honor ROCKS!!

    OMG ¿ What an incredible debut HQN novel from Rita-award winning author Catherine Mann!! The riveting opening grabs you by the throat and the heart when USAF Captain Joe ¿Face¿ Greco changes direction of his Pave Low helicopter from shuttling photojournalist Brigid Wheeler around a war torn country. Joe responds to a Mayday call for a Green Beret unit led by his buddy Cooper, which turns into a nightmare. The grief Joe and Brigid share over Cooper¿s death ¿ Brigid¿s lover ¿ brings them close together, but not to the point of stepping over the line of friendship. At least, not until a year later when Brigid is ready to move on and Joe realizes¿I won¿t say more and spoil it for you. A tortured hero and one of the sexiest warriors on the face of the earth, Joe surprised me in wonderful ways when I least expected. The chemistry between Joe and Brigid should catch the book on fire. This page-turner¿s twists and turns don¿t stop when Joe and Brigid learn the shocking truth about Cooper, whose casket they¿d watched lowered into the ground the year before. An ultimate betrayal still awaits them. Catherine Mann has done a brilliant job of weaving a deeply emotional story and fast-paced action around real characters you¿ll remember long after you finish the book. With a plot that constantly ratchets up the tension on every page, this story is one you¿d expect to see on the big screen. Clear a day to read this book or plan to miss an appointment.

    One For The Keeper Shelf

    Code of Honor is soon to be a classic amongst romances. The romance, the writing, the characters are just exquisite. It was love at first sight when Joe saw Brigid. Unfortunately, she was dating his best friend. When his best friend dies, Joe steps in and watches over Brigid but never lets himself get too close to her. But when Brigid starts opening the door for a different kind of relationship right before they head out on a mission together, then it's too much for Joe to handle. And along the way, a few surprises pop up which will really test their friendship and new found relationship. Run, don't walk to get this book. This is one that will surely catapult Ms. Mann to the top.

    Code of Honor is a must buy!

    Catherine Mann never fails to deliver --- and Code of Honor is her best yet. Catherine Mann's own special insight into not only the workings of the military and the hearts and minds of the warriors who live it, but the hearts and minds of those who love and support them enhances each of her stories. Code of Honor offers Catherine a longer format, which she uses to expertly twine storylines dealing with the pain of loss and moving on with the joy of new loves discovered and chances taken. Carefully crafted characters, like the tall, dark, seriously sexy Joe 'Face' Greco and the funny, flip, smartly sexy Brigid --- and the vilest villians --- mixed with page turning suspense and adventure ripped from todays headlines make this book a keeper. No matter what else is on your summer reading list, put Code of Honor on top.

    Code of Honor

    Code of Honor by Catherine Mann is an absolute MUST READ for the summer! This 5-star book is a definite keeper to add to your collection. I loved the opening pages that hooked me from the start. From the beginning to the end, the characters were memorable, well rounded and had great, great chemistry! This book is as good as, if not better, than Anything, Anywhere, Anytime. Mrs. Mann clearly portrays each characters strong values and personal code of honor on every page. This is a well - done, nicely written, great story. I didn¿t want it to end. Looking forward to her next book due on the shelves in October.
