As a bridal shop owner, Mikayla Martin helps make women’s wedding dreams come true. Her own life, however, has become a nightmare since she witnessed a murder—and got an up-close-and-personal look at the killer. What’s worse: She knows she knows him. But the police, after doing an alibi check, don’t believe her. It’s up to Mikayla to prove them wrong…and do whatever it takes to solve the murder by herself.
Elite Ops agent Nikolai Steele, code name Renegade, is asked to pay an old comrade a favor. This friend swears he’s no killer—and Nik believes him—even though he’s been mistaken as one by Mikayla. So Nik goes to set her straight…but the moment he lays eyes on the fiery and determined beauty, he knows he’s in too deep. A woman this irresistible can only mean trouble and, sure enough, after sticking her nose in one too many places, someone wants Mikayla dead. Now Nik must find a way to keep her safe, clear his friend’s name, and find the real killer, who remains on the loose… (from Goodreads)
If ever there was a series I want to re-read straight through, the Elite Ops is one. Of course, I would really have to start with her SEALS’ series because the Elite Ops is a spin-off of it.
Having said that, this book actually does a better job of standing alone than many of her others. There are characters from previous books, but not so many that I couldn’t keep them straight.
I don’t think Lora Leigh can write a bad book. She writes across a variety of genres and does an excellent job in all of them. Renegade is just another example of what a good author she is.
