It should have been a simple mission...

With the snowstorm kicking into overdrive, Sunny and Wade hunker down in a cave and barely resist the urge to keep each other warm... until they discover the frozen remains of a horrific crime... Unable to trust the local police force, Sunny and Wade investigate, while their irresistible passion for each other gets them more and more dangerously entangled...

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Mann (Renegade) delivers plenty of thrills and charged erotic situations with this first in a new series featuring pararescue men, elite U.S. Air Force heroes ready for tense "land, sea, or mountain, military missions or civilian rescue" around the globe. Tech Sgt. Wade Rocha parachutes onto Alaska's icy Mt. Redoubt to save a woman he thinks is stranded, but gorgeous Sunny Foster's survival training is as good as his own. Sunny has no interest in being "rescued"; she lives in a secret, self-sustaining community of people with very good reasons for avoiding the authorities. When someone takes potshots at Sunny and she and Wade discover bodies in the ice, they must carefully negotiate their growing desire and friendship while searching for the killer. Fans of military romantic suspense will welcome this infodump-heavy but bracing thriller with a strong-willed heroine and sensitive, hard-bodied hero. (July)

Read an Excerpt

Chapter 1
It was a cold day in hell for Tech Sergeant Wade Rocha—standard ops for a mission in Alaska.
He slammed the side of the icy crevasse on Mount McKinley. A seemingly bottomless crevasse. That made it all the more pressing to anchor his axe again ASAP. Except both of his spikes clanked against his sides while the underworld waited in an alabaster swirl of nothing­ness as he pinwheeled on a lone cable.
Wade scratched and clawed with his gloved hands, kicked with his spiked shoes, reaching for anything. The tiniest of toeholds on the slick surface would be good right about now. Sure he was roped to his climbing part­ner. But they had the added load of an injured woman strapped to a stretcher beneath them. He needed to carry his own weight.
Chunks of ice and snow pelted his helmet. The un­stable gorge walls vibrated under his gloved hands.
"Breathe and relax, buddy." His headset buzzed with reassurance from his climbing partner, Hugh "Slow Hand" Franco.
Right.
Hold tight.
Think.
Focus narrowed, Wade tightened his grip on his rope. He'd earned his nickname, Brick, by being the most hardheaded guy in their rescue squadron. Come hell or high water, he never gave up.
Each steady breath crackled with ice shards in his lungs, but his oxygen-starved body welcomed every atom of air. Lightning fast, he grabbed the line tying them together and worked the belay device.
Whirrr, whippp. The rope zinged through. Wade slipped closer, closer still, to Franco, ten feet below.
"Oof." He jerked to a halt.
"I got ya, Brick. I got ya," Franco chanted through the headset. Intense. Edgy. Nothing was out of bounds. Franco would die before he let him fall. "It's just phys­ics that makes this thing work. Don't overthink it."
And it did work. Wade stabilized against the icy wall again. Relief trickled down his spine in frosty beads of sweat.
He keyed up his microphone. "All steady, Slow Hand."
"Good. Now do you wanna stop horsing around, pal?" Franco razzed, sarcastic as ever. "I'd like to get back before sundown. My toes are cold."
Wade let a laugh loosen the tension kinking up his gut. "Sorry I inconvenienced you by almost dying there. I'll try not to do it again. I'll even spring for a pedicure, if you're worried about your delicate feet chafing from frostbite."
"Appreciate that." Franco's labored breath and hoarse chuckle filled the headset.
"Hey, Franco? Thanks for saving my ass."
"Roger that, Brick. You've done the same for me."
And he had. Not that they kept score. Wade rec­ognized the chitchat for what it really was—Franco checking to make sure he wasn't suffering from alti­tude sickness due to their fifteen thousand foot perch. They worked overtime to acclimate themselves, but the lurking beast could still strike even the most seasoned climber without warning. They'd already lost one of their team members last month to HACE—high altitude cerebral edema.
He shook his head to clear it. Damn it, his mind was wandering. Not good. He eyed the ledge a mere twenty feet up. Felt like a mile. He slammed an ice axe in with his left hand, pulled, hauled, strained, then slapped the right one in a few inches higher. Crampons—ice cleats—gained traction on the sleek side of the narrow ravine as he inched his way upward.
Slow. Steady. Patient. Mountain rescue couldn't be rushed. At least April gave them a few more daylight hours. Not that he could see much anyway, with eighty-mile-per-hour wind creating whiteout conditions. Below, his climbing partner was a barely discernable blur.
Hand over hand. Spike. Haul. Spike. Haul. He clipped his safety rope into a spike they had anchored in the rock on the way down. Scaled one step at a time. Forgot about the biting wind. The ball-numbing cold.
The ever-present risk of avalanche.
His arms bulged, the burden strapped to his har­ness growing heavier. Remember the mission. Bring up an unconscious female climber. Strapped to a litter. Compound fracture in her leg.
His job as a pararescueman in the United States Air Force included medic training. Land, sea, or mountain, military missions or civilian rescue. With his brothers in arms, he walked, talked, and breathed their motto, "That Others May Live."
That people like his mother might live.
Muscles burning, he focused upward into the growl
of the storm and the hovering military helicopter. A few more feet and he could hook the litter to the MH-60. Rotors chop, chop, chopped through the sheets of snow like a blender.
The crevasse was too narrow to risk lowering a sway­ing cable. Just one swipe against the narrow walls of ice could collapse the chasm into itself. On top of the injured climber and Franco.
On top of him.
So it was up to him—and his climbing partner—to pull the wounded woman out. Once clear, the helicopter would land if conditions permitted. And if not, they could use the cable then to raise her into the waiting chopper.
Wind slammed him again like a frozen Mack truck. He fought back the cold-induced mental fog. At least when Hermes went subterranean to rescue Persephone from the underworld, he had some flames to toast his toes.
Wade keyed his microphone again to talk to the heli­copter orbiting overhead. "Fever"—he called the mission code name—"we're about five minutes from the top."
Five minutes when anything could happen.
"Copy, the wind is really howling. We will hold until you are away from the crevasse."
"Copy, Fever."
The rest of his team waited in the chopper. They'd spent most of the day getting a lock on the locale. The climber's personal locator beacon had malfunctioned off and on. Wade believed in his job, in the motto. He came from five generations of military.
But sometimes on days like this, saving some reck­less thrill seeker didn't sit well when thoughts of people like his mother—wounded by a roadside bomb in Iraq,
needing his help—hammered him harder than the ice-covered rocks pummeling his shoulder. How damned frustrating that there hadn't been a pararescue team near enough—he hadn't been near enough—to give her medical aid. Now because of her traumatic brain injury, she would live out the rest of her life in a rehab center, staring off into space.
He couldn't change the past, but by God, he would do everything he could to be there to help someone else's mother or father, sister or brother, in combat. That could only happen if he finished up his tour in this frozen cor­ner of the world.
As they neared the top, a moan wafted from the litter suspended below him. Stabilizing the rescue basket was dicey. Even so, the groans still caught him by surprise.
The growling chopper overhead competed with the increasing howls of pain from their patient in the basket. God forbid their passenger should decide to give them a real workout by thrashing around.
"Franco, we better get her to the top soon before the echoes cause an avalanche."
"Picking up the pace."
Wade anchored the last... swing... of his axe... Ice crumbled away. The edge shaved away in larger and larger chunks. Crap, move faster. Pulse slugging, he dug deeper.
And cleared the edge.

    Great Read

    Ever have one of those books you just couldn't put down, even when you had to go to sleep because you had work the next morning? Cover Me, by Catherine Mann, is one of those books. I couldn't put it down if I wanted to, and trust me, I didn't want to.

    I've loved Catherine Mann's books since her Ops series. This book measures right up there with those. The writing flows and kept my attention. Heck, I wasn't even sure what time it was when I finally did close the book. The scenes are vivid and the characters unforgettable. I don't know a whole lot about paratroopers and pararescue techs but in the case of this book, it wasn't a huge deal. It was really like I was there on the Aleutian Islands, tromping through the snow with Brick and Sunny.

    Let's talk about the characters. Sunny is more than a little hard-headed, but she's realistic. I liked that she wasn't about to take guff from Brick. Plus the chemistry is spot on. Who can honestly knock a guy who wants nothing more than to rescue you? Not me.

    Then there's Brick. He's just as stubborn, but again, it's believable. I rooted for him because I wanted to see him melt a little. And I liked how they melted together. Phew.

    There's a ton of plot twists and things I didn't see coming in this book. Bodies in the snow? Check. Scorching snuggle time between the hero and heroine for the sake of keeping warm? Check. A baddie that's all bad and it's so much fun? You guessed it. Check.

    If you want a book that's got a little mystery, a little action, lots of snow, and lots of heat, then you need to snag a copy of Cover Me. It's a great read.

    Great new military series from Catherine Mann

    Pararescueman Wade Rocha "tries" to rescue Sunny Foster. Wade thinks Sunny is one of the stranded climbers on Aleutian Island, AK. But Sunny does not need rescuing, or does she? During the rescue bodies are discovered, is there a serial killer in Sunny village. People that Sunny thinks that she herself have taken out of Alaska are discovered dead. Could the killer be one in her village?

    This is the start of a great new series from Mann which I can't wait for more.

    the first Elite Force romantic suspense is an exciting romantic suspense thriller

    A mountain climber is stranded on Mt. Redoubt in the Aleutian Islands. Air Force Tech Sergeant Wade "Brick" Rocha Tech parachutes onto the frozen mountain to rescue Sunny Foster. However, she wants him to leave her alone as she insists she has great survival skills as a survival guide and does not need any saving especially from the military as she belongs to a secret community who hide from authorities.

    As someone tries to kill Sunny, she, her dog Chewie and Wade discover bodies in the ice. With a blizzard coming, the trio must find better shelter than her cave, but a predator wants them dead. They battle their attraction and the increasingly nasty weather, as the Tech Sergeant the survival guide and the canine named after Star Wars team up to hunt a predator.

    Similar in tone to Catherine Mann's Dark ops saga (see Renegade), the first Elite Force romantic suspense is an exciting romantic suspense thriller starring a "brick headed" Air Force Pararescue tech and a rock hard survivalist with a cause. Fans will enjoy this fun thriller although what is happening in the Aleutians seems over the top of Mt. McKinley, as Wade quickly learns Sunny and Chewie can take care of themselves; but he insists on keeping his woman and their canine safe from whoever wants her dead.

    Disappointed

    I guess I am the odd ball according to the other positive reviews. I just couldn't get into this book. It took me a week to finish it. Its hard for me to not finish a book after I pay my hard earn money. The story and the characters just did not hold my interest, and the story was too long. I have read "Captive Return" by Ms. Mann and enjoyed that book. I will try another one of her books because I like to read about military special ops.

    An outstanding military romance

    My Thoughts
    COVER ME by Catherine Mann is book one in her new Elite Force series. With COVER ME fans of Catherine Mann's previous titles will be completely awed. If you are new to Ms. Mann's writing, what a treat you are in for. This is one of those OMG reads that you can't help but adore. It'll quickly be added to your Keeper Shelf but don't be surprised if you want to reread it. You get a great setting, Alaska, and realistic completely believable characters with a story that will have you turning pages as fast as you can. There is romance, suspense, fast paced action, a heroine who can kick butt and a hero who can appreciate that and kick butt along side her. There are secondary characters and storylines you'll adore, but the main characters will be the real draw to this story. There's a freshness to Ms. Mann's story that will have you sighing and guessing and guessing again to how it all will end. I can't wait to see what's to come from this series. I'm sure it'll be great. I highly recommend COVER ME to all fans of Military romances and to those looking a great story with a fascinating storyline, unique setting, and characters that keep you on your toes. This is one story you don't want to miss!

    4.5 Stars: High altitude danger, riveting suspense and scorching romance, Cover Me was a book that I couldn¿t put down!

    Pararescue Jumper, Wade Rocha, is in Alaska on a training mission when his team gets the call to pick up a stranded group of climbers. When he parachutes down towards the last figure he sees Wade finds the beautiful Sunny Foster and her dog Chewie, who do not want nor need his help. But when somebody takes a shot at them and a lot of the woman¿s story just doesn¿t seem to add up, Wade decides to stick close to her no matter what she wants. And if he gets to explore the chemistry he feels sizzling between them then all the better. Sunny Foster does not plan to get close to the handsome PJ who is an outsider to her town and a threat to her whole way of life ¿off the grid¿. She is torn between the attraction she feels for Wade though and a duty to her brother. When they stumble upon a frozen grave of former town¿s people Sunny knows that she must put her trust in Wade and his military team to discover the culprit behind a sinister plot, even if that means revealing the skeletons in her own back yard. Wade lives by the PJ motto, ¿That Others May Live.¿ Strong, honorable, sexy and determined, author Catherine Mann brings this hunky hero to life from the pages. His character instantly grabbed my attention from the first page; his past demons grabbed at my heart and his heroism made me want strand myself on a freezing cold mountain in hopes that a sexy PJ would come rescue me! Sunny is a guide for her town, living off the grid has made her fiercely independent and protective of her family and town, and very untrusting of outsiders. However, she¿s not stupid and knows when she needs help. I really liked Sunny¿s personality and her ability to take care of herself for the most part but not being too stubborn to accept help. Sunny and Wade¿s relationship developed quickly but it was all very open and upfront, which was refreshing to read. Together they sizzled and I was certain that they would melt the icy mountains around them! The murder plot added some great tension and though you knew right away who most of the villains were, the story still kept you on the edge with what they would do next and who would come out ahead. Sunny¿s secrets did hinder the expectation a little bit and slowed the story down somewhat. Still, Cover Me had the perfect mix of suspense and romance with detailed and authentic world-building for the icing on the cake. Also, there was a secondary storyline with Sunny¿s sister, Misty, and her ex, Flynn, that was quite captivating and a bit of an emotional rollercoaster in itself. I really felt for the pair. The dynamics between Wade¿s pararescue team was great with the banter and little jibes between them entertaining, I can¿t wait to read more about each team member! A fabulous start to the Elite Force series that is now on my must-read-series list! You can definitely tell that the author puts her heart and soul into her writing and knows what she is writing about.

    Catherine Mann takes Military Hero to a new level.

    Wow! What an awesome read. Catherine Mann takes military Hero to a new level in Cover Me with Pararescueman Wade Rocha and Wildness guide Sunny Foster. Called out on a wilderness rescue, Wade parachutes in to save and protect Sunny until the weather clears and they can be airlifted out. Sunny was seeking some solitude before returning home. With a secret she would risk her life to protect, the last thing she wants or needs is rescueing. Danger is lurking around every corner as a sinister terroristic plot is slowly uncovered. Ms. Mann gives us a glimpse into the the high adrenaline and dangerous life of a Pararescuemen and an outback wilderness guide in the brutal cold of Alaska. The plot and characters are well written and realistic. I could not put this book down. I'm running out for Hot Zone, book 2 in this series.

    Delivers the Romance

    Catherine Mann delivers another pulse pounding, heart stopping, sizzling story in Cover Me.

    Pararescueman Tech Sergeant Wade "Brick" Rocha is a highly trained member of an Elite Special Forces team. They are trained for any type of rescue and their skills are put to the test in the unforgiving land of Alaska. Wade's latest mission had him dropping from a helicopter onto the frozen land of the Aleutian Islands. His mission is to rescue a stranded hiker and get them back to safety. But the woman he encounters insists that she is fine and to leave her alone. Wade's training and ethics will not let him leave this woman to the elements. With an oncoming storm Wade must get himself and his reluctant rescued woman Sunny Foster to safety.

    Sunny Foster is unwilling to blindly follow Wade Rocha. She must protect her friends and family that are living in a secluded area. Sunny is the best guide the area has and when those of their group leave she is in charge of guiding them out. But someone does not want Wade nor Sunny finding out what is really going on near Sunny's home front. Wade and Sunny get caught in the crossfire of a dangerous and determined killer.

    Wade's protective instincts around Sunny are in high gear but Sunny is a strong and capable woman in her own right. They both are proficient in protecting each other and those they love. Wade and Sunny are immensely attracted to each other and know that their time together is brief. But feelings they develop are not easy to ignore or act upon them.

    As Wade and Sunny give into their desires the killer will stop at nothing to protect his way of life and his plans to maintain control. This throws Wade and Sunny into a battle for their very lives.

    From the cold of Alaska to the warm and sunny beaches of Florida this book will keep you enthralled from the very first word. You can feel the chill and the danger pouring off each page. Wade and Sunny's chemistry is red hot and their conversations are compelling. Top notch read by Catherine Mann. I am eager to read the next story in this series.
