He never meant for her to pay it.
Aiden has never left anyone behind. Not a comrade and certainly not an innocent. But when an undercover mission goes wrong, he's forced to abandon a woman trapped in a human trafficking ring.
Violet learned brutally that no one is promised a happy ending. She knows Aiden blames himself for his part, but she refuses to let her abduction define the rest of her life.
She won't be a victim again. And she's going after what she wants: Aiden.
Watching Violet transform herself into a fierce warrior is the sexiest thing Aiden has ever seen. The honorable plan would be to stay away from her--let her heal and grow without the shadow of his mistakes clouding her progress--even though every instinct tells him to claim her for his own.
But when they discover the danger they thought they'd left behind is closer than ever, they'll have to face their deepest fears and fight side-by-side in order to survive.
Another heart-poundingly exciting story for this series! This couple absolutely blew me away. As far as main characters with a romantic interest go, I couldn't have asked for more than Aiden and Violet. He's a tough, take charge guy with a heart of gold, and Violet is as strong a heroine as I've ever seen. She's been hurt and has the mental scars to prove it, but she's bound and determined not to let it break her. She's certainly not about to let past trauma come between her and her dreams. Aiden did make me want to give him a good shake at one point in the story, even though I did kind of agree with him, but these two are so good together that there is no way to read this book and not be totally won over and rooting for their happiness together. We also get plenty on the suspense side of this tale and there are parts that are hard to read. Those parts don't get too graphic, but they certainly get the heart rate up. Shamrock is part of a series and overlaps somewhat with the previous books, but we get all the info needed to also enjoy it as a standalone. However, once you've gotten to know the wonderful characters of Linear Tactical, you'll want their stories too. Like the rest of the series, this third book is full of steamy romance, edge of your seat action and suspense, all the feels, and truly great characters. This is definitely a must read and I can't wait to see what's next in the series.
