Cover Me is the first book in the Elite Force series by Catherine Mann and a Romantic Suspense from SourceBooks Casablanca.
It should have been a simple mission...
Pararescueman Wade Rocha fast ropes from the back of a helicopter into a blizzard to save a climber stranded on an Aleutian Island, but Sunny Foster insists she can take care of herself just fine...
But when it comes to passion, nothing is ever simple...
With the snowstorm kicking into overdrive, Sunny and Wade hunker down in a cave and barely resist the urge to keep each other warm...until they discover the frozen remains of a horrific crime...
Unable to trust the shady local police force, Sunny and Wade investigate, while their irresistible passion for each other gets them more and more dangerously entangled...
Wade Rocha is marking time with an assignment in Alaska while waiting for his deployment in Afghanistan. He takes his job as a pararescueman in the US Air Force very seriously - their motto being, “That Others May Live”.
When a training session at an icy crevasse turns into a real distress call for missing hikers, Wade and his team head into a blizzard without hesitation.
Wade parachutes from the helicopter and finds Sunny and her dog. But she claims not to need help - in fact, she offers Wade shelter from the storm.
But Sunny is being very secretive and Wade wonders what she is hiding. She admits to living nearby - but doesn’t offer more than that. When Sunny tries to flee without Wade the next morning, he gives chase - and then the two make a gruesome discovery.
Now Sunny is more involved with the military than she ever wanted to be - and she is afraid that the secrets she is keeping will be revealed.
But someone else has their own agenda - and keeping Sunny’s village secret is their top priority.
One they are willing to kill to keep.
Cover Me is the first book I have read by Catherine Mann and I enjoyed it very much. I am looking forward to the next installment in this series - Hot Zone, coming December 2011.
I give Cover Me 4 out of 5 stars.
