TV reporter Laura Nilsson, known as the "Baghdad Babe," spent eighteen months in an Al-Qaeda compound after being kidnapped live on the air. Two years later, she's still wondering why. No mission in Javier Corbray's fourteen years as a Navy SEAL affected him the way Laura's rescue did. No woman had stirred his protective instincts the way she did. And he wants her more than he's ever wanted anyone. As Laura and Javier's passion ignites, so does Laura's need to discover the mystery of her past. Especially when she learns that her abduction was not random and that she's still a target for a killer with an impenetrable motive. Now Javier will have to rely on his skills to keep the woman he loves from being struck down before she dares uncover the truth.

As anyone can tell from my list of recent reads, I love romance novels. It's pretty much all I read these days. And I don't care how unrealistic they may be, I love every well-written HEA, love-at-first-sight, true-love, etc. story I can get. What set Striking Distance apart was the depth and maturity of the relationship between Laura and Javier. I seem to remember seeing a quote from the author somewhere that she wrote two pages for every page that actually made it into the book. Perhaps that's the reason that this one seems so much more layered than many novels I've read recently (including the rest of the I-Team novels which are already some of the best out there), or maybe it's just that there's so much more knowledge of the supporting characters six+ books into the series. (Lordy, how I love seeing them in each progressive book.) Even the epilogue stood apart from others in that it brings us much further into the future than usual, adding to the depth of the characters' relationship. Whatever the case, I think this was one of, if not *the* best in the series. (And having "First Strike" out there as an extra was just icing on the cake. It was both nice and sad to see both characters in a much lighter time but what it really did was add that foundation for everything that comes afterwards.) Highly recommended for anyone who enjoys romantic suspense.

Pamela Clare writes this story so well with heartrending emotion and characters who leap right off the page. Have you ever read a book that seeped into your soul while you read it, leaving you feeling both destroyed and elated when you finished? STRIKING DISTANCE was that book for me. This is an excellent book filled with suspense, many plot, twists and turns, and plenty of secondary characters. This story completely reeled me in with heady sexual tension, heartwarming romance and combustible love scenes. Javier is one hot incredibly PAPI / Navy Seal with a good heart, mind, body and soul. One of the sweetest, loving ,tender, caring, compassionate, guy you will ever read about. and Laura is just the right women for him...I would be this bella any-day. If you like MAYA BANKS- LORA LEIGH - JOAN SWAN- LISA MARIE RICE- DEE DAVIS- SUZANNE BROCKMANN- LAURA GRIFFIN- STEPHANIE TYLER- NINA BRUHNS- JEANNE ADAMS- CINDY GERARD- KIT MARTIN- and ALISON KENT then you will definitely like this author.
