If you love Donna Kauffman's books, this older one will not disappoint! John and Cali's story is about love from a distance finally reconnecting after 10 years.
The story was a pretty good love story, along with some intrigue.
Would recommend reading this one!

Thanks to the publisher, Random House Publishing Group, and NetGalley for the chance to read this!
This is the second book in the romantic suspense Delgado’s Dirty Dozen series by Donna Kauffman: Silent Warrioris a re-issue of a Loveswept Classic Romance #831 originally pub 4/97. Delgado’s Dirty Dozen #2 (John McShane’s story)
John McShane and Nathan Ellis were best friends, partners and in love with the same woman. Ten years ago they were sent in to rescue the Ambassador Standfield’s daughter, Cali, after she was kidnapped in an attempt to intimidate him. Nathan and Cali fell in love, married, and she was pregnant in the blink of an eye. Six months later, Nathan was dead and Cali miscarried…it was John who yanked Cali from the edge of depression.
Ten years passed before John heard from Cali again…a letter, requesting help from Cali to John.
I hate to ask anything more of you. I promised I never would. But it’s important. It’s about Nathan. I’m in trouble. Please help me. You’re the only one I trust.
P.S. I’m sorry.
It was a good book, typical romantic novel, where you knew how it would end, but it had some interesting ways to get there. It had some intense parts as well as parts you wanted to pull your hair out. I would suggest it to others, especially if you were looking for a shorter novel that is tastefully written.

Silent Warrior by Donna Kauffman
Silent Warrior is a Loveswept classic romance. It is also the second book of Dirty Dozen.
Thier is a love scene in the book that I skimmed over.
I have now read 4 ebooks of the Dirty Dozen. I enjoy them but the how the cases get wrapped up always seems to just end. Would have liked to see more of that case ending. It does work how they are done though. Some of the characters that have minor roles in one book have a bigger role in thier own stories.
John McShane is working for a goverment agency that they call the dirty dozen. He is on one case when he gets a photo in the mail and asks him for help. John flies out
to where the photo was taken to see what he can do.
Cali Ellis was in trouble and she was not sure what to do. 10 years ago she lost her husband and then lost the baby she was caring. John was able to pull her out of her depression. Her husband of six months wrote a computer program and he was worried about it and hid part of in a safety box in the islands. Thier was also a insurance that paid out and Callie found part of the program.
She turned it over to the goverment agency without looking at the top secret program. They did not believe her and all of her apartment was taken. Then she was shot at. So she started to follow the clues to see what her husband was doing. She knows John was into secret agent type work so asked him for help or point her in a direction.
What Cali did not know of was that John had fallen for her before she was married to his best friend. He wanted to protect her.
Cali only knew that she went to the US goverment and some how they are after her. She had no idea what program could still be worth something ten years later. That people are willing to kill for.
This was a very fast read I wish it was longer though. I was given this ebook to read in exchange of honest review from Netgalley.
