I’m excited to take part in this Valentine’s Day Blog Hop with other bloggers who are showcasing Indie authors and spreading the love about their work. Today, I want to show some love for author Elaine Levine and her romantic suspense Red Team series. I discovered this talented author last year when I was browsing through e-books on Amazon and saw that the first book in the series, The Edge of Courage was available for free, and since then I have been a fan.
This series centers around a team of former members of an elite covert military special operations unit in the U.S. Army. Now, working together in the private sector, they have joined forces with the FBI and Homeland Security to track down an active terrorist group operating in the U.S. So far Levine has published the following three installments which should be read in sequence to understand and follow the elaborate plot that continues to unfold.
The Red Team series is a great blend of action, suspense, and romance to curl your toes. The heroes are swoon-worthy, yet complicated characters. All of them battle with individual inner demons from the past, and, in their struggles to resolve the emotional turmoil, they find smexy heroines who challenge, love, and support them.
The Edge of Courage (Red Team #1)
Step into Elaine Levine’s exciting new series of alpha warriors–products of the government’s secret corps of assassins called the Red Team:
Haunted by memories he cannot reach, stalked by an enemy bent on revenge . . .
Rocco Silas has come home to Wyoming after long years as a Red Team operative in Afghanistan. It isn’t easy returning to civilian life, especially burdened as he is with a staggering case of PTSD or hunted as he is by an enemy determined to seek an eye-for-eye–neither of which can he battle until he confronts the truth of what happened one fateful day in the high mountain ranges of the Hindu Kush.
. . . She alone holds the key to his sanity.
Mandy Fielding’s dream of opening a therapeutic riding center on her family’s ranch is almost within her grasp–until she hires Rocco Silas, a dangerous ex-Spec Ops friend of her brother’s. His haunted eyes and passionate touch promise a love she never dared believe possible. Can they confront the truth of his past and build a future together or will the enemy stalking him destroy them both?
Shattered Valor (Red Team #2)
Every step leads her deeper into danger…
Eden Miller has her life arranged exactly as she wants it–until a reunion with her high school BFFs places her in the middle of a turf war with a ruthless prison gang, their terrorist allies, and the hunters tracking them. Her every move draws her deeper into the danger surrounding Ty Bladen and his team of terror fighters, but his seductive charm and engaging smile make her believe his promises of protection.
A secret is a dangerous thing…
When the terrorists Ty Bladen is tracking infiltrate his remote ranch in Wyoming, he learns the past he buried cannot be so easily escaped. Though he’s recovering from a bullet wound he received in Afghanistan and is hunted by an unseen enemy, he knows he can’t leave Eden alone to face the danger swirling around her, danger he and his team have brought to her–even if the has to risk letting her near his frozen heart. But when she learns his terrible secret, will she stay or will she run?
Honor Unraveled (Red Team # 3)
Love Isn’t a Battle…
Kit Bolanger, ex-spec ops soldier, has followed the trail of an international drug lord back to his childhood town, the one place he swore never return to. He and his team of terrorist hunters are the only thing standing between the town’s residents and the evil threatening them. It doesn’t help to know that she’s here—the woman who betrayed his trust and shredded his heart.
…It’s a War and He’s Offering No Quarter
Deciding to put roots down, Ivy Banks has brought her daughter home to the sleepy ranching community of Wolf Creek Bend, Wyoming—the one place where she was certain she’d never run into her high school flame. But he’s back, fighting a global enemy and home-grown terrorists in a hidden war that puts their lives and their hearts in jeopardy. He was bad news in high school, and he’s even worse news now.
Surrendering to him is not an option…but it’s the only thing he’ll accept.
About Elaine Levine
Here is what Elaine says about her work on her blog:
I make stuff up. And I have fun doing it.
Genre fiction gives me the perfect medium to build worlds where readers can join me for fun adventures. Pick up one of my Men of Defiance historical western romances and slip your fingers around the Colt .44 of a legendary gunslinger, be a scout on a wagon train, or ride shotgun on a stagecoach. Pick up one of my Red Team romantic suspenses and join the battle against international druglords and home-grown terrorists with a hot team of counter-terror specialists.
Romance fiction lets you be, for a few sweet hours, something you’re not. Which is cool, because every time you look at life through someone else’s eyes, you learn more about yourself.
So read often–become who you were meant to be.
