Romance | Thriller Military

As a Navy SEAL Nathan Malone understood the risks involved. Nathan has come home from missions broken and battered but he always came home. When a quick mission to rescue three girls goes terribly wrong Nathan is presumed dead and his wife, Sabella is given the news she has just become a widow at the very young age of twenty. For 18 months Nathan was being tortured and pumped up on the synthetic drug Whores Dust. During a mission to rescue one of the girls who had been kidnapped for the second time the Durango SEAL team finds and rescues Nathan.

Unfortunately the body they rescued has been severely broken and the man's soul has been shattered. Nathan refuses to allow his wife to be notified that he is alive. He believes Sabella is too sweet shy and kind to handle the damaged man he has become. Nathan Malone "dies" and Noah Blake is born. Noah is cold as ice, stronger than steel and more lethal than any weapon. Whereas Nathan would kill only if it became necessary, Noah is swift to annihilate his enemies with precision and efficiency. The only piece of Nathan that remains is the heart that loves his wife with every breath he takes.

WILD CARD written by Lora Leigh is book one in her new Elite Ops series. WILD CARD picks up immediately where Leigh's Navy SEAL series ends. Fans will be pleased to see the sexy and lovable Durango team in the background while Leigh introduces all new characters who define hard-core Alpha male. When a mission in Nathan's home town forces Noah to live and work closely with Sabella he will have to fight the demons of his past. Can Noah be able to be within arm's reach of Bella without claiming her as his? What if Bella recognize the man in front of her as her deceased husband? WILD CARD poses the question; can the love of a good woman bring a dead man back to life?

SUMMARY

It was supposed to be simple. All Navy SEAL Nathan Malone had to do was rescue three young girls from a Colombia drug cartel, then allow himself to be captured just long enough to draw out a government spy. That was before his mission went disastrously wrong…and before his wife, Bella, was told that Nathan was never coming home.

Bella’s mourned her husband’s death for three long years. But she has no idea he’s still alive. Forced to assume a new identity, the man Nathan was is now dead. If he can get back to his wife, can he keep the secret of who he really is…even as desire threatens to consume them? And as danger threatens to tear Bella from Nathan’s arms once more?
