Taking Aim

Elle James

Harlequin Intrigue, Jul 23 2013, $5.50

ISBN: 9780373697069

Ever since his wife and child died in a botched kidnapping last year, billionaire Raging Bull Ranch owner Hank Winchester decided justice needed help. He hires four unemployable former law enforcement officials at his firm Covert Cowboys, Inc.

FBI Special Agent Tracie Kosart visits her twin Jacie at the Big Elk Ranch where the latter works as a big game hunting trail guide. On a big hunting tour, an incident occurs leaving Tracie abducted and Jacie fortunate to make it to the Raging Bull Ranch. Jacie insists on going after her sister while Zach and others tell her to be patient. They find one of the hunting party clients Mr. Jones who whispers set up and DEA before dying. Hank says Tracie went unofficially undercover to learn who the FBI leak is and that Zach was to assist her if he accepted the job. Zach is motivated to go after the cartel that destroyed him and took Tracie. However, Jacie insists she is coming with him or without him.

The second Covert Cowboys investigative romance (see Triggered) is a wonderful redemption thriller as the mentally broken hero has two powerful reasons to regain his lost mojo: a chance for revenge and a chance for love. Action-packed readers will relish this intrigue with the overarching theme moving slightly forward; while also looking forward to the former sheriff as a Cowboy Resurrected.
