An anthology of three stories whose main theme is of protectors who make promises to protect. Consciously or not.
“Just Bad Enough” (B.A.D., 4.5)
“Leave No Trace” (Black Ops, 5.5)
“Unstoppable” (Tracers, 2.5)
Sherrilyn Kenyon and Dianna Love‘s “Just Bad Enough” is a different take on the usual B.A.D. story. Jeremy Sunn is recuperating from a wound taken on an op and finally meets his very sexy next-door neighbor and spends three weeks getting to know CeCe. What he doesn’t learn is her family background. That’s fair though as Jeremy doesn’t tell her of his cover as an ex-con. All of which comes out to haunt the two of them when they get caught up in criminal activity and the FBI. Cute and sweet without any real legs to it.
Cindy Gerard‘s “Leave No Trace” is a bit of a heartstopper when Carrie Granger gets tossed into a slave mine grubbing for rubies in Myanmar. Unfortunately for that little government cover-up, Carrie has some very resourceful friends with even more resourceful friends. Great story with a good bit of tension to it.
Laura Griffin‘s “Unstoppable” finds Kelsey and her dig outside a little border town in Texas much safer once Uncle Joe sends a nice, big SEAL to watch over her. Too many break-ins and a murder have made the family uncomfortable and they know that Kelsey won’t stop until time runs out. Nice. Different with a bit of a CSI touch to it.
The Cover and Title
The cover looks like it’s lost from another set of stories. A black leather-clad woman standing legs spread, hip cocked in a field. A breeze is blowing and the sun is setting. As for the title, yeah, it fits. For in each story, there’s a hunk of a guy radiating Deadly Promises.
