It has taken Catori Starr years to come to terms with the death of her husband during a failed hostage rescue mission. She'd overcome her tragedy better than anyone could expect, but no one could truly understand the crushing black hole left in her grieving heart. She'd moved on to the best of her abilities, even reopening the doors to their business and operating a hostage rescue team she'd personally recruited.
Brendan "Red" O'Neill's last mission didn't go as planned. He'd ended up becoming a political prisoner to a fragmented national government in a country that was supposed to be an ally to the United States of America. He lost count of the endless days spent wasting away throughout his years in captivity, but never once had he forgotten the vision of his wife's beautiful face. She was the only motivation he'd managed to keep for his own sanity as he clung to life.
Breathe. That's what Starr had to keep telling herself over and over as she discovered the closely held secrets surrounding the facts of that fated mission. Her husband had been captured alive and she would move heaven and earth to bring him home, even if that meant sacrificing everything they had--including her own life.
Series Description: Red Starr HRT is a paramilitary hostage rescue team that was originally formed years ago by two retired Marine Master Sergeants.

Two years later Starr is clawing her way back and ready to lead a fresh team of five cherry-picked former Force Recon Marines. Red Starr HRT takes cases the FBI and other agencies won't touch, from domestic assignments bordering on the grey edges to missions abroad against savage terrorist regimes. Follow along as Kennedy Layne conveys each of their stories as they work together on high risk rescues that lead them down perilous paths of passion, intrigue and suspense...

Catori Starr didn’t bother to look away from the thunderous waves in front of her as the shoreline eventually broke the persuasive momentum of the incoming tide, leaving the foaming caps no choice but to tumble over themselves and race back out into the undertow.

Would her husband resemble those broken shells upon returning home?
Catori blinked back the tears that had threatened to fall so many times over the course of the last few months—since that fateful day she’d dis...
