A Military Affair by Merline
AF cop Sergeant Teresa Ross heads an elite Phoenix Raven
cadre charged with protecting the plane and crew sent to a
remote Pacific island to recover the remains of a U.S.
Marine missing since WWII. When a scruffy, unidentified
intruder attempts to penetrate the defensive perimeter
Teresa has set up around the aircraft, she takes him down.
To her disgust, the intruder is a seriously hung-over UPI
stringer who claims to be working a story on the movement
of terrorist-supplied arms across the South Pacific. Her
lip curls when Pete offers to trade his knowledge of the
island for exclusive rights to the story about the dead
marine. She isn't about to let anyone cash in on the story
of a fallen warrioruntil the recovery team comes
under intense fire. Dodging bullets, she and Pete bring
the team to safety and the WWII marine home to the honors
he's so long deserved.
Comrade in Arms by Lindsay McKenna
The last thing Captain Mike Johnson's special forces A-
team needs going into Afghanistan is a woman.
Unfortunately for Mike, Captain Rachel McCain, an Army
Intelligence officer, just happens to be the only one
around who speaks Farsi. Rachel willingly volunteers for
the dangerous wartime assignment to be Tiger 01's
interpreter. Tensions run high because Mike is old
fashioned and doesn't believe women should serve in
combat, but he has no choice; no one on his team speaks
any Arabic language. Things get hot in more ways than one
in Afghanistan as Mike learns that Rachel is the one
soldier he can't live without.
