The story of Nathan Malone’s recovery from his year-long ordeal at the hands of Diego Fuentes and his partner in corruption Jansen Clay.  He first appeared in HIDDEN AGENDAS, then a short scene at the beginning of KILLER SECRETS, and now it’s a couple of years later.  He was so weak physically and mentally that he was hospitalized for a long time (several months?)  And, apparently, he has had facial reconstruction.  Word on the street is that he had to do it because Diego is still alive and might come after him again.

So not only is this his anxiously-awaited story, it’s also the beginning of a new series. We’ll see Nathan try to reconcile with his wife.  He’ll be drafted into a new team of commandos, run by his uncle, with a worldwide reach.

I don’t know that it’s been mentioned much but Leigh can create some really scary women. Fuentes’s dead wife Carmelita sounds like a scary-ass beyatch from the bowels of Hell.  And Clay’s wife sounds like a psycho-dominatrix-nympho-lesbian. Jeez. Vicious, much?  It reminds me of when I was a kid.  I grew up around women who seemed quite innocuous, but they ran offices and classrooms, politics and marriages with iron fists while their men got all the attention and credit. 

Here is an excerpt from

The Elite Operations, ELITE OPs was created to fight against that terror. A six man force working independent of government protocol or oversight, created to do what the others can’t do. They have only one directive. Success of the mission. No matter what it takes.

Captain Jordan Malone (from Tempting SEALs) will lead the first five agents into the missions that will test their abilities, their loyalties, and their belief in themselves.

The heroes from the new series are:

  • Nathan Hawke nee Malone
  • Travis Caine (MI-5/English)
  • John Vincent (Aussie Intelligence)
  • Nikolai Steele (Russian Special Forces)
  • Micah Sloane (Mossad/Israeli)

One of the things I love about Lora Leigh is that she does her homework.  She’s writing plots that used to be the sole property of male writers.  And she does it damn well.  The thrill is in the details with these international military intrigue plots.  It’s the getting ready, the gathering of weapons and intel, the strategizing, the action.  She’s great with details and so ends up writing fantastical stories that sizzle in the brain. They’re exciting and noisy and kick-ass.

Amazon lists the street date as August 26.  But the larger bookstores might have it a few days sooner.  Get all of the Tempting SEALs books while you are waiting for Nathan’s story.
