No Regret by Shannon K Shannon
Shannon K Butcher's website
Shannon K. Butcher is wife of Jim Butcher. When I discover this, after friends had recommend her to me, I wasn't anxious to read No Regret right away. Since I have try Jim Butcher and find it not my cup of teas (although I tell myself I will go back and re-read his first book of Dresden file, in later times. After all, it's my moods sometime that cause me to not enjoy the books and I always give authors a second chance or maybe a third chance. The third time is a charms, right? *G*), I just figure I will read Shannon's book in later time too. But than two friends had read No Regret and "scolded" me to hurry and read it. So I did. And I want to THANKS them so much for their "Scolding" me *G*...I love the book!
Noelle Blanche, a smart and brilliant renowned cryptologist, refuse to help the military in a covert operation which she don't want to use for violence. And what worse, she is told to either accept a military grant or lose her job that she loved so much. But when a gunmen raid her home and she is threaten to be kill if she don't lead them to the weapons they wanted, Noelle knew it'll be her own hand if innocence get murdered. With help from ex Delta Force operative David Wolfe, she knew that she would be safe as long as she run for her life with him.
Ex Delta Force operative David Wolfe thought he had left the horrible past behind, but when he discover that one of the Swarm have arise and that there a mole in the CIA -- he knew he must protect the woman they had set their sights on and then kill the last alive terrorist organization called the Swarm before they could get to her. Because the Swarm had savagely murdered his wife, he want to prevent history from repeating itself. This time, he will kill them all, even if it mean it would cost his heart.
Along the way, their attraction for each other grew strong and together they fight for their life as well as trying to keep the Swarm away from getting to the deadly weapon.
No Regret is romantic suspense filled with action packed, adventure and great hot romance. It is intelligent written book with smart strong heroine. Just enough romance to make your heart melt and hot sexual intense attraction between characters. Page turner, interesting and refreshing. It keep me reading until the very end. I love the fact that not only is the hero is smart, but the heroine is strong, very smart and not TSTL kind. Shannon have written her to be more believable and interesting character. Something we don't see too often in heroine characters.
Shannon K Butcher is new voice of romantic suspense, one I going to keep a watch for in her next book(s)! I dare you to pick No Regret up! You won't regret it! It a must read :)
