Publisher's Summary

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?

Red Team

Edge of Elaine Levine
This novel had an emotionally broken hero that tore at your heart. Rocco Silas is a former military Red Team operative, and lived deeply undercover in Afghanistan for several years.
He has seen the worst of humanity and carries the mental and physical scars with him no matter where he goes. After returning to the U.S. he is treated at Walter Reed for his PTSD. Drugs that left him numb, and unable to function were their answers for him. He pretended he was fine, secretively stopped taking the drugs, and hit the road. One of his teammates, Kit Bolanger, pleads with Rocco to help his half-sister Mandy Fielding. She is trying to get a therapeutic riding school off the ground and is running into some disturbing issues. Vandalism, theft and exiting employees are threatening her plans.
Mandy , our heroine, is a beautiful, strong and caring woman. She is a trained massage therapist, and has an amazing way of calming children, adults and animals. At their first meeting Mandy can see the pain and conflict in Rocco's life, and soon learns the gravity of his PTSD. He feels he is a broken man, not deserving of comfort or peace. Mandy feels very differently .
It was such a relief when Rocco finally realized how lucky he was to have Mandy in his life, and he vowed to protect her with his own. Very dangerous men from Rocco, Kits, and their other teammate Ty's past threaten their future, and Mandy's .
This novel was action-packed, and contained a beautiful love story. I very much enjoyed meeting the Red Team. I highly recommend this novel to listeners who enjoy military romances with a bit of cowboy.

Any additional comments?

The Edge of Courage is the story of Special Forces soldier Rocco Silas and his search for sanity, love and family. This book is also the first in her Red Team series and I can hardly wait for the next book... The Edge of Courage is defiantly Romantic Suspense - Hot as Hell and had me on the edge of my seat from the get go...

Rocco has given ten years of his life for the country he loves. Because of his gift for learning and mimicking languages he has spent the last eight years buried deep under cover in the wilds of Afghanistan. During this time he was gathering Intel and doing everything he could to get close to leaders of the Taliban. Rocco even married an Afghani girl and had a son, until one horrifying day when everything went wrong and life as he knew it ended.... After spending weeks at Walter Reed, Rocco is still seriously messed up in his head and runs home to Wyoming only to find that home isn't exactly home any more. Rocco tries to get his footing and ends up at his friend’s sister’s ranch. Mandy is nothing like he expected and everything that he needs and can’t have. However things are happening on Mandy’s ranch and Rocco won’t leave her until he solves the mystery. Little does he know that his nightmares have followed him and taken on a life of their own.

In this story we meet all kinds of people, eccentric small town residents, hot alpha military types, skin heads, druggies, terrorists, Hard muscled hot alpha men and cute kids. To me this book had it all and i will be continuing with this exciting series :)
