A tower of testosterone, Captain Jake Travers had the drive, the daring and the pulverizingly masculine muscles to rescue his kidnapped kid sister singlehandedly. All he needed was a guide through the perilous Peruvian jungle. What he got was Lieutenant Cortina. Ana Lucia Cortina--a strong, sensual female soldier who outraged Jake's military machismo. Worse, gunfire and the hot tropical sun detonated desire, and Jake thirsted for completion in Ana's arms. But with danger dead ahead, proud Jake suddenly knew fear: Could he save his sister, survive this mission--and make this magnificent woman warrior his wife?

One day after resigning his commission as an officer with the Army Rangers, Jake Travers performs the impossible and breaches Morgan¿s impregnable headquarters in Montana. Jake asks Morgan for help to rescue his sister, Talia, a hydrologist working with the Que¿ro Indians in Peru. Her employer, the legitimate non-profit Wiraquocha Foundation, informed Jake that his sister is missing and probably kidnapped. Since Morgan has no one available to accompany Jake, he calls an American soldier working in Peru, trading helicopters for a guide who knows the Rainbow Valley where Tal was last seen. Jake has problems with his guide being a woman even though Morgan vouches for Lieutenant Ana Cortina. However, she is his only hope of rescuing Tal. In Peru, Jake quickly becomes impressed with Ana¿s abilities to survive the dangers that threaten them. As he reassesses his thoughts on the capabilities of women, Jake and Ana fall in love, but they still have a deadly mission to survive. The latest Lindsay McKenna¿s ¿Morgan¿s Mercenaries¿ novel is an interesting work of romantic suspense with a twist as neither the hero nor the heroine work for the Perseus group. The story line is fast-paced and very descriptive, especially the remote areas of Peru. Jake is a great character because his macho beliefs make Ana the wrong person for him. Ana is a brave individual who proves women can serve in combat. MAN WITH A MISSION is a strong entry in one of the better ongoing romantic suspense series of the past few years. Harriet Klausner
