A short story, 1.5 in the Elite Ops romantic suspense series, revolving around a secret organization that deals in black ops. The couple focus is on Lillian Belle and Travis Caine.

My Take

Whew, Leigh pulled me in from the start as she describes “Black Jack” walking in. Dang, he sounds so very sexy, and while Leigh writes it from a third person dual protagonist point-of-view, it’s mostly from Belle’s perspective.

There isn’t any real action, well, not the kind one normally considers bang-bang, shoot-em-up with escapes and captures and all. But it’s definitely shaping up for, hubba-hubba, action.

And Leigh is doing a good job of ratcheting up the heat! Except…she just drops us! I really wanted to give this a “3” for that…grrr…but it is well written…

The Story

An accepted contract, an assassin and traitor to find…it’s just another meeting between team commander and courier. One that heats up…

The Characters

Lillian “Night Hawk” Belle, formerly an agent in Europe, works for Elite Ops.

Elite Ops
Jordan Malone is the head of Elite Operations and Belle’s commanding officer.

Travis “Black Jack” Caine is another Elite Ops agent and under suspicion. He calls Belle “Lady Hawke” in his mind. She’d been assigned to his unit as courier and information gatherer.

Risa Clay (Wild Card, 1) has had a contract put out on her (Maverick, 2). Her father, Jansen Clay, is a traitor who conspired with Sorrell.

Orion is an international assassin.

The Title

The title is all about “Night Hawk” ‘s desires.
