Title: Cover Fire
He'll protect her with his life...but who will protect his heart?
If the assignment is crazy, dangerous, or a little of both, Sub-Lieutenant Sebastian Rayne can’t help but take on the challenge. So when Command Intelligence tags him to fly one of their agents behind enemy lines, it seems like just another routine death-defying mission. Crash landing on the planet was a piece of cake, but the gorgeous agent he delivered safely to her meeting is now believed dead and he must return to retrieve her body.
After Agent Jenna Branson realizes her own people attempted to have her killed, she enlists the hot stick jockey’s help. His new mission? Sneak her back onto his ship to ferret out who wanted to get rid of her and why. But she fears her growing feelings for Seb have blinded her to his reckless insistence on helping her stay alive, and his rash behavior will cause them both to lose their lives.

Cover Fire is one busy story! Jenna is a Command Intelligence agent. That loosely translates into a super spy. Her current assignment is to go deep into CCS enemy-held territory. Her and her handler approach Sub-Lieutenant Sebastian aboard the Knox and request he flies her in. He thinks they’re crazy but he takes the challenge. Once the crash land on the planet they go their separate ways. Seb hijacks another ship and heads back to the Knox only to be told that something has happened Jenna and he must return to retrieve her body. What?! He gets back only to find out not only is she not dead but now they realize her own people attempted to kill her. She asks Seb for his help, to get back to the Knox and to find out who and why somebody wanted her dead.
So much subterfuge going on. Jenna a special agent, someone trying to kill her, sneaking around finding who is after her. Whew! And Seb finds himself in the middle of it all. She’s used to doing things on her own and he insists on helping her. When the methodical agent meets the reckless stick jockey and you just know sparks are going to fly.
Both have vulnerable sides. She’s had to give up so much to do her job. He was deeply betrayed and as much he tries playing it off the pain has him doubting himself. Between the danger and the intrigue, the excitement just keeps building and building and along the way they find love and an HEA. Possibly not for just themselves! Hint-hint!
A final note: I try to be good about reading series in their proper order, however, I didn’t quite follow that guideline when it came to the Valiant Knox series. 2, 1 and now 3. At least I’m up to speed now on everything and let me suggest reading them in proper order, especially when it comes to Damage Control #2 and Cover Fire #3. There a major plot line that takes place in #2 that has a huge impact on Sebastian. Without that knowledge, the continuing storyline may not have the proper oomph it needs.
