Just in time for the month of love, Tory Richards’ THE MERCENARY WAYS has pulses pounding strong dark heroes, saucy damsels in distress and heated jungle loving.
Sarah Reynolds finds herself kidnapped by a ruthless gem smuggler when she is mistaken for her best friend Susan and needs all the help she can get. Ex-navy Seal Clint Becker has just given up his vacation time to rescue his cousin Susan’s best friend from a very dangerous man. Sassy and stubborn Sarah may be more than this mercenary can handle.
The adventure and excitement start on the very first page and never slow down. This reader simply could not put down this steamy jungle romantic adventure. Sarah and Clint are like oil and water. Clint knows what has to be done to get Sarah home. Sarah is scared, completely out of her element and forced to rely on the rudest, most annoyingly attractive man she has ever met. Her bristly manner and panicked reactions are completely reasonable to her, but plainly just not to Clint. The exasperation both characters feel for the other and their intense attraction is positively palpable and grips readers like few other stories this reader has read lately. When Sarah comments that these things only happen in movies and on television as she runs from smugglers while having lustful thoughts of Clint, you just know this story is going to be a good one.
Tory Richards’ THE MERCENARY WAY has everything you could ask for in romantic adventure. Readers will laugh, cry, empathize and go along for the excitement with these two so very differing characters. Tory Richards is an author to watch for and THE MERCENARY WAY is the only way to go when looking for your next adventure in reading.
