About Lindsay McKenna’s Jaguar Night
Recon Marine Staff Sergeant Josh Patterson didn’t see it coming. As a high school athlete, he and five other young men known as the Sidewinders, took Texas football championship twice in four years. They came from a Podunk Panhandle area of Texas known as Rush City. It was a struggling ranching community out in the middle of nowhere. These six football heroes had teamwork, heart and were competitive.
Each of them upon graduation, went to serve in the military. As Fate would have it, they all ended up in black ops in their various chosen branches. Josh had always wanted to be a Marine like his father had been. He became a vaunted sniper and was a Force Recon Marine. What he didn’t see coming was Marine Corps General Harrison Landon unexpectedly hand selecting him for a very special op: to rescue his daughter, Allison Landon, from the hands of a drug dealer hidden deep in the Amazon Brazilian jungle.
The General knew of his reputation to get the job done. And there was nothing like a little pressure on Josh to get in, find this woman, and successfully extract her. Worse, if she was at the villa in the jungle, once he freed her, they would have to make a hundred mile trek, on foot, to the Amazon river to be picked up by a Navy Riverine craft. And that was a helluva long way for any civilian to make, never mind a woman who wasn’t in top athletic shape. Josh saw the negatives in the plan, but when asked if he wanted the assignment, he said yes. Why? Because Landon showed him a color photo of his daughter and right then and there, Josh lost his heart. Whether he knew it or not…
Was it was Aly Landon’s soft blue eyes, her compassion as a nurse who worked at a charity to help others who were desperate for medical attention, or that ginger colored hair that framed her attractive face? Josh didn’t know, but he was hooked. For better or worse. He had no idealism about this op. The cards were stacked heavily against them. Even if he was able to locate and rescue Aly, the easy part was done. The hard part was that hellish trek through the jaguar infested Amazon jungle to reach the river and be rescued by a Riverine force. And Josh knew the drug dealer would send his very best trackers and mercenaries after them to hunt them down and kill them. It was going to be a brutal test of not only Aly’s physical strength, but her heart and her will to live, rather than die.
About Merline Lovelace’s Amazon Gold
U.S. Navy Chief Charlene “Charley” Dawson deftly commands the Riverine patrol boat taking an arrogant U.S. Delta Force Army Sergeant on a very personal op. As she and Jack Halliday penetrate deeper into the Amazon after a rogue ex-pat, they face danger…and unexpected attraction.
RT Book Reviews says: “McKenna and Lovelace know the right combination of romance, passion and military special ops to make both stories sizzle.”
