J.L. Saint’s Silent Warriors are back with their second book, TACTICAL DECEPTION, a contemporary story of terrorist acts, zealots, and the heroic men who willingly give their all day in and day out to protect us all from finding out just how often they are called to service.
Lt. Col. Roger Weston is still dealing with the aftermath of his team’s failed mission in Lebanon. Guilt caused by faulty data ended in the death of a teammate, leaving a wife and mother-to-be without a husband. The danger to Mari from her radical family has followed her to America and continues to plague her. So Roger has taken Mari under his protection. Terrorists set on striking fear into every American have brought their fight to America and are targeting Roger’s family, including the President of the United States.
This reader loves military romance stories. There is something about well built men in uniform fighting the good fight, saving lives and kicking terrorist butt day in and day out that flat out does it for this reader. How on earth I missed the first book in this series continues to baffle me.
J.L. Saint, who also writes as Jennifer St. Giles has a writing style that calls to mind hints of Suzanne Brockmann, Cindy Gerard, Marliss Melton and Catherine Mann. Her heroes are strong, well-trained fighting men who ooze sex appeal and honor. The stories in Giles’ Silent Warriors series could easily be based on real life events happening today. The lives these warriors save every day and the women who love them, knowing the dangers they face each and every day, make these stories stand out as chilling, fast-paced, span the globe and will have readers waving the red, white and blue. These men are heroes and these are their stories.
TACTICAL DECEPTION was all that and more. The book centers around Roger and Mari’s love story, but they are not the only storyline that Saint has readers following as the book unfolds. There are a group of terrorists planning their big attack, a wounded member of the Silent Warrior family, Rico and his lady love Angie, DT and Lauren’s growing romance and General Dekker and Holly’s story all developing and intermingling. The result is a pure adrenaline rush as our heroes race to stay one step ahead of the terrorists as people are being shot, buildings are being blown up and beaurocracy does its best to slow down them down.
If you happen to be a fan of military romance, J.L. Saint’s TACTICAL DECEPTION is a definite “must read”. This is an author poised to sell a whole lot of books.
This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
