When wildlife biologist Remy Renaud gets lost in the Everglades, she doesn’t expect to find a body dump—and herself on the Endangered Species list. However, when a modern day warrior steps in to protect her, she is forced to trust a man she doesn’t know. A man she could come to love. A man she could lose if a killer has his way.

Micah Rivera agrees to hide Remy, but when the FBI decides to use her as bait to catch the killers, he and his team spring into action to keep her out of harm’s way. Now with both law enforcement and murderers on their trail, Micah is left in an untenable position—keep his team safe and Remy out of trouble without losing his heart to the woman he has sworn to protect.

As Remy and Micah join forces, one thing becomes clear. To survive, they must defeat the enemy at his own game.

Kallie Lane delivers another Shadow Soldier story that is full of action and emotion that keep a reader’s adrenaline pumping.

The horrifying, terrifying antagonists in Lethal Abandon make one shudder with fear and dread. Moreover, the reader learns about them early on and feels their ominous presence always lurking.

Remy Renaud, a wildlife biologist, while well-trained to handle herself in the Alberta Canada wilderness, is totally out of her element in the Florida Everglades. Lost, with a crocodile keeping pace with her boat, Remy thinks it cannot get any worse, then she sees a horrific sight—men burying a body in a secret graveyard in the swamp. Worse, they see her.

Micah Rivera, a reserve in a Special Ops Unit, owns a security service with several helpers trained in special ops. Theirs is a dangerous business, but they excel in getting the job done. While he is visiting his friend Pete Mandel in Florida he becomes involved with saving Remy—against her will. She is stubborn. He does what has to be done even when Remy is unreasonable. When she finally realizes how marked for death she is and how much Micah had one and continues to do to keep her alive, she is broken-hearted about being so mean and hateful to a magnificent man.

The chemistry Micah and Remy have makes the story sizzle at times giving the reader a respite from the danger. Also, the huge dog Tubbs added comic relief. But Ms. Lane doesn’t relent. She takes the reader into the group of psychopathic antagonists as they plan their campaign against Micah and his men and women.

If you have reader previous Shadow Soldier novels, you’ll be able to catch up with characters you already know, like Theo and Melena, Billie and Rocket, Hawke, Hunt, Law, and Rizzoli. None of them have lost their edge. They work together like a well-oiled machine when trouble comes.

Lethal Abandon takes the reader on a vicarious adventure that is high octane from start to finish—a total escape from the ordinary, mundane world. Exciting entertainment!
