WAR BRINGER (THE RED TEAM #6) by Elaine Levine

Romantic Suspense/ Contemporary Romance


imageThe Covert Operative…

Kelan Shiozski wasn’t looking for a girlfriend or a wife or any other sort of female in his life, but he found her hiding in his enemy’s home…and he knew instantly she was his soul mate.

Patience has long been part of his warrior ethos—until it meant waiting for his woman to come of age. Now that time is here, and he’s about to spend three days alone with her, away from his team, away from their mission tracking a homegrown terrorist group operating out of the Rocky Mountains. He has three days to show her, with his heart and his body, what it means to be his other half.

But when she’s kidnapped before their celebratory weekend, Kelan must track her into the dark depths of a hidden crime world, which few ever experience or exit alive.

…And the Innocent

At just twenty-one, Fiona Addison has lived a sheltered life that began unraveling a year earlier when her mom and her friend died in two separate car accidents the same week. The layers are peeling away, revealing who she really is, culminating in a truth she cannot accept.

And now, everything she learns about herself imperils the future she hoped to have with Kelan, a man whose fierce warrior nature will not let her go despite the cost to himself.

They’ll either live together or die together…a fate they cannot let be decided by a madman.



Another action packed edition to the Red Team series. I wondered how Kelan’s book would be as he is a bit mystical in his ancestral beliefs, but it gave him a different depth that I ended up liking. My only other comment would be that the antagonist seems to be getting more and more convoluted. Is that a good thing or a bad? Time will tell. That being said, this was a fast paced, action packed ride, sprinkled with steamy romance that compelled me to read it in one sitting. I can’t wait for the next one.

Review: HONOR UNRAVELED (RED TEAM BOOK 3) by Elaine Levine

Publication Date: July 27, 2013
Reviewed by : Reading in Pajamas/Donna
Rated: 4.5 Stars



Kit Bolanger, ex-spec ops soldier, has followed the trail of an international drug lord back to his childhood town, the one place he swore never to return. He and his team of terrorist hunters are the only thing standing between the town’s residents and the evil threatening them. It doesn’t help to know that she’s here—the woman who betrayed his trust and shredded his heart.

…It’s a War and He’s Offering No Quarter

Deciding to put roots down, Ivy Banks has brought her daughter home to the sleepy ranching community of Wolf Creek Bend, Wyoming—the one place where she was certain she’d never run into her high school flame. But he’s back, fighting a global enemy and homegrown terrorists in a hidden war that puts their lives and their hearts in jeopardy. He was bad news in high school, and he’s even worse news now.

Surrendering to him is not an option…but it’s the only thing he’ll accept.


I truly enjoy the Red Team series and the ongoing back-story of the terrorist/biker/drug dealer issue. I was pleased to see the author add the “When last we visited the Red Team” page which reminded everyone what had happened up to this point. I wish more authors did that. The Red Team’s familiarity and interaction remains fun and believable as they deal with the large threat to civilians and themselves. The tension and suspense was great. The romance was steamy and touching at the same time. I also loved Kit’s interaction with his daughter. It was so believable and sweet. I would have scored this a 5 but I had a hard time warming up to Ivy and her treatment of Kit. I think she carried it way too far and I didn’t like her for a long time. That being said, she got smart and the rest of the story carried it through. A must read and a keeper for my shelf.
