Sunday Series Spotlight: Titanium Security Series by Kaylea Cross

Kaylea Cross is one of my favorite military romantic suspense authors and she has recently released Extinguished, the fourth book in her exciting  Titanium Security series, which I have been following this year.    If you are a fan of this genre but haven’t yet read any of Cross’s work, this is a good series to check out and one I highly recommend!

Although I’ve only read the first two books in this series, I have been very impressed!  Ignited and Singed are both sexy page-turners with a fantastic blend of sizzling romance and heart-pounding action that will keep you riveted until the very end and eager for more.

When her father is murdered by a Taliban cell in the tribal regions of Pakistan, Khalia Patterson reluctantly steps into his shoes to carry on the legacy of Fair Start Foundation, a non-profit group dedicated to furthering the education of girls. There she meets Hunter Phillips, the ex-SEAL and head of her Titanium security team, and quickly learns that coming to Pakistan might prove to be a deadly decision. 

Battling demons of his own, Hunter grudgingly leads Khalia’s protective detail as a favor to his boss. From their first meeting it’s clear she’s going to be trouble, and that the cell that killed her father is hell bent on taking her out as well. Keeping her alive is one of the toughest assignments he’s ever faced, yet through one harrowing situation after another she continually impresses him with her strength and inner courage. Even though he fights his feelings for her, it’s a losing battle. And when the job is over, he doesn’t know how he’ll let her go.

Ignited shows Kaylea Cross at her best. She has created an engaging storyline  that grabs you right from the start with an intense, adrenaline-pumping opening that I literally could not put down. Both Hunter and Khalia are great, realistic protagonists grounded in their dedication to their joint mission.  I appreciate Cross’s attention to detail, and really developing the emotions and thoughts of the characters to bring them life.  Cross provides the POVs of not only Hunter and Khalia but also to the antagonists so you understand their motivation and fears regarding their involvement in this complex plot as it continues to unfold.  Each rising crisis gets more intense as the danger escalates and the outcome isn’t always pretty or safe.  This was an absorbing and deliciously thrilling read!
