Author Kathy Lane delves into the world of espionage and spec ops machismo in her romantic suspense, SNIPER SHOTS.  This story has a little bit of everything, a beautiful mountain setting, two strong and head butting leads, an array of yummy minor characters, danger, excitement and attitude.  What more can you ask for?

Amy Sheridan has always known her past life as a special ops sniper would catch up with her one day and although she swore to never pick up a rifle again, she knows better than to let her skills get rusty, especially since she discovered her ex-teammate and lover for the traitor that he is.  Which is why her new life in the mountains taking pictures and hiking with her dog suit her so well.  Then she meets her match in Joshua Colby and her well ordered life takes a turn towards explosive.  Joshua knows love is a thing of fiction for a spec ops soldier, but when the woman he is sent to protect turns out to be a part of that world already, scenarios he never before considered suddenly become very real possibilities.

Author Kathy Lane and publishing house Wild Rose Press have more than delivered with SNIPER SHOTS, a fast-paced romantic suspense that keeps readers eagerly awaiting each new development as it unfolds.  Set in the world of spec ops, the characters are all strong, well developed (in every way) and capable.  This reader always enjoys a story where the heroine is just as secure and take charge as the men surrounding her.  The glimpses into the softer side of these warriors only serves to warm up the storyline for the explosive love scenes we know will follow.

Although the story develops much as expected and the surprises are few, this reader thoroughly enjoyed SNIPER SHOTS character development, action scenes and beautiful back drop.  There are so many interesting possibilities for future stories here that this reader can’t help but keep author Kathy Lane in her crosshairs awaiting the next soldier to find love calling.
