With No Remorse [Mass Market Paperback]

I've finished "With No Remorse" the 6th book in her Black Op. Inc. series by Cindy Gerard.

Product Description

Black Ops, Inc. operative Luke – Doc Holliday – Colter is taking some much needed down-time, making his way across the Peruvian Andes via rail, when banditos attack the moving train in the midnight hours.  It soon becomes apparent that robbery is not their intent but the abduction of super model Valentina, who is traveling incognito while recovering from a public scandal involving her ex-husband, high profile US Senator, Marcus Chamberlin.  Luke whisks Valentina off the train in a daring escape but the two of them become the targets of a relentless manhunt.  Enlisting the aid of Luke's BOI teammates, they soon discover that Val’s intended abduction is linked to a plot put in play by an international gun smuggling alliance.  The BOI team led by Luke, with Val along as a necessary pawn, must race halfway around the world to thwart a ruthless attack that would not only result in a devastating loss of life but destroy a tenuous peace the US and her allies have established in a vastly unstable part of the world.

My Review:

Storyline:  Luke "Doc" Coulter is on a well deserved vacation and still recovering from being gut shot a year ago. He's still questioning his mortality, his abilities and even his reasoning for what he is doing for BOI.  While on his way to Peru on a train he meets his dream girl Valentina a model he has had a crush on since his teen years. Bad guys are after her and he feels very protective of her and slips back into his old self to keep her alive.

Characters: Luke is a sexy, charming, has a sense of humor, protective, strong, caring and has a heart of gold.

Valentina is no slouch either since she has to endear being man-handled, having swollen knees and surviving the freezing cold.  She's adaptable and does what needs to be done to survive.  She's smart and but for moment when she asks her ex to help her after all that Luke has done for her.  Really liked how she interacted with BJ and Crystal.

She was abducted as a young girl by her mother's ex-boyfriend and still deals with the trauma of that situation of being horribly claustrophobic. She's on her own mission of finding some peace and silence from her crazy world. Her high profile marriage ended in divorce after her husband was caught cheating and after she learned of that and other betrayals she just needed to get away from it all.
Joe Green also steps up to the plate and has a bigger role in this book.  He is filled with rage over the death of their team-mate a long time ago.

Romance:  Valentina and Luke are the total are two peas in a pod.  Both feel lonely in the world and I really like their sense of humor.  Their love scenes were pretty hot and at times I needed to drink to cool down.

Killer: The killer really loves their family and makes sure they know nothing of their business.  This person was really scary and willing to do anything to make sure Valentina was brought to them to use as a hostage.


Thanks Maylene from Simon and Schuster Canada for sending me this book to review, greatly appreciated!
