Sabella Malone loved her husband Nathan with every single beat of her heart and every breath she ever breathed. When he died six years ago on a mission, she thought she would die with him so great was the pain she felt. For years nothing mattered; but when her world didn’t end, Sabella slowly learned to live again. Dating men, but not allowing them close to her heart, Sabella is stunned at the heated attraction she instantly experiences with the new mechanic her brother in law hired behind her back – Noah Blake; blue-eyed Noah Blake.
Noah rides into town under the deep cover of his mission. His eyes are looking for the only woman he has ever loved, and when he finds her under the engine of an automobile, he recognizes that Sabella has changed. What he doesn’t realize is that the Bella he knew is not the Sabella of today. Intrigued and unable to contain his desire, Noah sets out to insinuate himself in Sabella’s life – at least for a little while – because once the Elite Ops’ mission is complete, Noah Blake will have to disappear.
While reading HIDDEN AGENDAS, also by Lora Leigh, my heart hurt for the Navy SEAL so abused but still so steadfast in his wedding vows to his wife. I yearned for his book and for his happy ending. Not one word of this highly emotional and addicting novel, WILD CARD, has disappointed me. Noah Blake, while a changed man, continued to be true to his wife and though six years had passed, almost three of them spent recovering, Noah still honored his wedding vows. A more perfect character I have yet to meet.
WILD CARD is an intoxicating first installment of a brand new series. The words flow, the emotions are raw, and love is in the air. Add in the danger of Noah’s mission and I could not have asked for a better book. I can’t recommend WILD CARD enough. It is ultimately one of the most satisfying books I have ever read penned by this prolific and talented author.
