Capturing the Commando by Colleen Thompson

Shannon Brandt's mission had failed—spectacularly. Instead of arresting AWOL Ranger Rafe Lyons, the merciless commando had kidnapped her—a tough, experienced FBI agent. Worse, she'd agreed to a deal with the devil and promised to help Rafe recover his abducted niece.

Before long, her promise becomes a wrenching ethical dilemma. If she breaks the law to reunite a family, she'll ruin her career and dishonor her family. But if she plays it by the book, an innocent life may be lost. To further complicate her decision, Shannon finds herself falling for the arrogant, abrasive—but undeniably attractive—commando…even though this dangerous mission might lead to both their deaths.

How far would you be willing to go to achieve justice? What would you be willing to give - or to give up - to right a horrible wrong? ***** Still stinging from a disastrous call on her last mission that led to a hostage debacle, FBI Special Agent Shannon Brandt is determined to prove herself an agent worthy of her honored and heroic father's name. Her brother's had no problem following in Dad's footsteps, but things are different for a woman in the agency. Her current case, to bring down a vicious ring of murderers, has given her the opportunity to show what she can really do. Her assignment: to entrap the fugitive, Rafe Lyons, and bring him in. ***** Captain Rafe Lyons, an officer of the U.S. Army Rangers has not only gone AWOL, but he's gone rogue. Rafe will do whatever is necessary to revenge his sister Lyssa's death. The latest victim in a series of brutal serial killings, Lyssa was slaughtered in her eighth month of pregnancy, and Rafe's niece was kidnapped, stolen from her mother's womb. He doesn't even know if the baby girl is alive, but he vows to find her and bring her home to her grieving father Garrett. ***** When Shannon poses as a disaffected girlfriend offering information on Lyssa'a killers in an attempt to locate Rafe, he turns the tables and kidnaps Shannon, meaning to use her in his elaborate ploy to infiltrate the killer's camp, and end the trail of murders and abducted babies for sale. Shannon finds Rafe has information on the head of the kidnapping ring that the FBI has yet to uncover. The lead could take her to the head of the crime ring, and she agrees to help him. She quickly gains respect for the man. But he's gone too far, and even though she's deeply attracted to Rafe, she knows she'll have to capture the commando and take him in when their mission to stop the crime ring is complete. ***** Shannon alerts Rafe to information on Garrett indicating he may not be the faithful and innocent husband he pretends to be. But Lissa and Garrett loved each other, and Rafe believes Shannon is trying to divide their loyalties so she can gain the upper hand. He knows he can't trust the spunky FBI agent, even if his body and heart want the brave, caring woman for his own. ***** The unfolding plan brings twists, upsets and danger at every turn, with Rafe and Shannon balancing their feelings for each other with the necessity of saving the lives of stolen babies. ***** Colleen Thompson has written another suspenseful page turner, with some shocking surprises that will keep the reader guessing and on edge - until the very last page.

Thompson's latest, Capturing the Commando, grabs the reader from the get-go and doesn't let up until the last riveting page. Harlequin Intrigue does not disappoint in this fast-paced, sizzling romance with an electrifying plot. After an embarrassing kidnapping by her intended target, rookie FBI agent Shannon Brandt determines she has everything to prove and throws in with her captor to find a missing infant. AWOL Ranger Rafe Lyons is on a mission unlike any other-he's determined to find his sister's killer . . . and will use any asset at his disposal to achieve his objective, including Shannon. Rafe and Shannon's unlikely alliance proves dangerous as well as steamy as they pursue treacherous villains to find Rafe's orphaned niece. A fun summer read at the beach or at the pool!
