Pamela Clare~~4 1/2 and 5 Star Reviews
Navy SEAL Javier Corbray and TV reporter Laura Nilsson had spent an intensely passionate, no-strings-attached weekend together in Dubai, but by the end of their time together both had decided they wanted more. They never got the chance, though, because while reporting a story, Laura was kidnapped live on the air and was thought to have been beheaded by Al Qaeda.
Javier has seen a lot in his fourteen years as a Navy SEAL, but nothing could prepare him for the unexpected outcome of one mission in particular--the rescue of Laura Nilsson, the woman he and the rest of the world had thought dead for the past eighteen months, the woman he’d never stopped wanting, never stopped caring about.
Now that she’s home, Laura is moving forward, putting the pieces of her life back together, but she’s determined to find out who kidnapped her, and why. Javier will do whatever he has to do to protect her from those who want her dead.
Striking Distance is the sixth book in Pamela Clare’s romantic suspense “I Team” series. It’s a gripping story that takes us deep into the heart and mind of a woman who has endured almost two years of rape and mental and emotional torture. It’s not always an easy story to read, but Ms. Clare handles the subject of rape with compassion, giving Javier and Laura a truly beautiful, well deserved, “happily ever after.” Pamela Clare is one of the great voices in the romantic suspense genre, delivering compelling, entertaining stories that pull readers in and keep them there, start to finish. Fans of slightly darker romantic suspense will definitely want to read Striking Distance.
