“Fantastic characters, scorching sexual tension, and non-stop action make this one of my favorite reads this year!”—New York Times bestselling author Laura Kaye
RITA nominee Scarlett Cole’s Under Fire pairs a hot Navy SEAL with a medical researcher who finds herself in too deep.
Hot, hard-bodied Sixton Rapp is a former SEAL who’s raring to begin his brand-new civilian life. He and his Navy “brothers” start a security firm that offers the kind of services only a team of military-trained professionals can provide. But nothing prepared Six for his new client: an innocent woman on a mission to improve thousands of lives. . . unless someone takes hers first.
Dr. Louisa North knows time is against her as she tries to create a “miracle” medical treatment for a disease with no known cure, until she creates a sample so powerful that the wrong people want to use it as a chemical weapon. At first, Six is unwilling to accept Louisa as his client. But soon he realizes that the danger is real and that there’s much more to this plain-Jane scientist…including a burning passion between them that neither of them can resist. And now that an enemy is on Louisa’s trail, Six will do whatever it takes to protect her—or die trying.

Susan’s Review: 4 stars
Scarlett Cole’s first foray into romantic suspense is a winner! I’ve enjoyed everything I’ve read by her before, so I had high expectations. This totally met them 🙂
Six and Louisa (or Lou as he calls her) couldn’t be more different. He’s ex military, starting a security business with his Navy SEAL brothers. And he’s a lady’s man. She’s a dedicated scientist who has social anxiety. Yet they work so perfectly together. He brings out the calm in her, and she does it for him too. I kind of want Six for myself LOL
The action was great, as was the romance. It was a nice blend. Sometimes that’s hard to do, but Scarlett Cole got it right. I can’t wait for the rest of the Eagle Security’s guys to have their stories.
