The members of a top secret SEAL Team can’t keep their passion under wraps in this thrilling contemporary romantic suspense series from New York Times bestselling author Monica McCarty.

Like Rome’s Lost Legion, a SEAL platoon goes on a mission and vanishes without a trace.


After walking into a trap on a covert op in Russia, the men from top secret SEAL Team Nine are presumed dead. Not knowing whom they can trust, and with war hanging in the balance, the survivors must go dark and scatter around the globe.

Marine ecologist Annie Henderson joins her new boyfriend on a trip to the Western Isles of Scotland to protest a hazardous offshore drilling venture. When she realizes that she may be swept up in something far more dangerous than she’d intended, there is only one man she can turn to. . . .

She and the mysterious but sexy dive boat captain haven’t exactly gotten off to the best start, but something about his quiet confidence makes her think that he’s the kind of man she can depend on. Because he’s gruff and guarded, she can tell Dan Warren has secrets. But she could never imagine how high the stakes are for him to keep his cover, even as he risks everything to protect her. . . .

 
 Going Dark by Monica McCarty (The Lost Platoon, #1)

Going Dark (The Lost Platoon, #1)They were sent on a covert mission to Russia, but SEAL Team Nine never returned. It was a deadly trap and all are now presumed dead. Case closed, there would be no investigation and those who survived must go deep underground to await answers on who they could trust and who betrayed them.

Dan Warren has become a dive boat captain in Scotland, staying to himself, sleeping with one eye open, coiled like a snake ready to pounce. He never expected a beautiful woman to literately fall into his lap that night in the pub, nor did he know she would rain down trouble that he cannot avoid getting involved in.

Marine ecologist Annie Henderson was a woman on a mission of passion to protest hazardous offshore drilling. Little did she know she was merely a patsy to take the fall for something far more nefarious. Now she is alone, and in trouble in a foreign country and Dan may be the only person she can turn to for help.

Was it an emotion she stirred within him that made Dan throw caution to the wind to keep her safe? He has worked so hard to stay under the radar but Annie has done the one thing no one else could, she has made him feel again, but to feel anything for her is far more dangerous for them both than she realizes, besides, what would she do if she learned everything he has told her has been a lie?
Monica McCarty’s GOING DARK showcases another dark and brooding male, trained to be the best of the best and a feisty and rather clueless female who leaps before she looks as she lets her emotions blind her to the depths of the trouble she is in.

Looking for that all-male alpha who puts honor before anything else? Like watching them begin to crumble when their heart gets involved? GOING DARK may not be original, but the action is intense and the danger is taut, the hero is hot and in spite of the heroine, this SEAL just may be one cape short of being Superman.

I received an ARC edition from Berkley in exchange for my honest review.
