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
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?
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?
