Publisher's Summary

Jolie Benoit left her old life behind to become an agent of the Underlight. Training under Sergeant Wesley Haukon, she's honing her combat skills, all the while coping with the intense sexual attraction she feels for Hauk. She keeps their friendship casual, but when his high school sweetheart transfers into their division, Jolie finds herself grappling with jealousy.
The Underlight gave Hauk a purpose, but he can't escape his past completely. The physical and emotional scars from the fire that killed seven fellow Army Rangers will mark him forever. Jolie sends his protective instincts into overdrive, but he's convinced he'll never be worthy of her love.
Hauk is determined to keep Jolie from harm. But when the Order of Ananke ambushes them with a new weapon that neutralizes Hauk, making him vulnerable, it's Jolie who must tap into her hidden strengths to rescue him - or risk losing him forever....

A very original romance!

I love Hauk -- and Jolie, of course, but what I really love is the snappy dialogue and original idea for a romance in this well written and entertaining series. Book 2 is every bit as entrancing as the first book and I hope Ms. Garren writes on and on. I especially love that this author is not following the genre's tiresome standard of each book dealing with different set of main characters -- I prefer to be able to follow the characters I love through a series of books. I wish more authors would do this, but I know not everyone feels as I do.

Couple of thoughts: One reviewer for the first book wrote: ". . . I felt a little concerned that beauty is only 17 and working in a strip club." First of all, Jolie is 24 years old, so I'm not sure if that reviewer was reviewing a different book by mistake. Also, Jolie does not work in a strip club -- she is a burlesque dancer, not a stripper, so again -- different book?

Also, there is a great new PR series that is only available on Amazon (so far!) -- it is fantastic and not to be missed. Look up: J. T. Geissinger's "Night Prowler." You can thank me later! (and no, I have no monetary interest in the sales of this series -- just doing a good deed for fellow PR fans.)

Rated book 2 by mistake, instead of 3!

But still a good book. Listening to book 3 now. :) So glad that Hawk finally got his girl...No details included because I am a numbnut and mixed up my reviews lol

But your credits will be well spent on this series!
