Highly complex suspense with lots of intrigue and heartbreak.
This is a story about a FBI Counterterrorism Division that has spent years trying to take down an Irish mob family that also has ties to a terrorist cell.
Ron Daily's team consist of Conner English who is the techno geek, Davis Allen who's known as the enforcer and Jason Michaels who has been undercover in the Flanagan organization. Jason had been through hell during his time undercover. Not only are the constantly experimenting on him with untested drugs he also dreams about the one woman he cannot have, Mercy Kingsley.
Drake Kingsley used to be an FBI agent and Ron's partner. After his daughter was kidnapped tortured and he was shot he retired and started his own business with Thomas Patrick. His plans were for Mercy to one day run the Ireland branch of the company. But Mercy wanted to be like her dad and instead joined the FBI training program.
For here everything goes full tilt to an explosive intersecting of so many plot points. When Mercy is kidnapped again and given too much of the experimental drugs nd Jason's cover is blown this leads to heartbreak for Jason. Jason and Mercy are rescued but months later when she finally awakes from a coma and pregnant she doesn't remember that is not from the ex-fiancé Mitch Edwards who only had aspirations of becoming CEO of her father's corporation and may also be in bed with the Irish. Jason has to sit back and let this happen all while Ron and the team find out that he and Mercy's lives are still in as much danger now as it was months ago. And the worst part is they still don't know who all the "bad" guys are in all the scenarios.
And do you think that's the end... Think again. We are then introduced to Dallas Baker who runs a secretly sanctioned rescue group that Conner and Davis left the FBI for and who is now a large part of the operation. Some of the leaks are figured out and some not and what really happened to Mercy during her first kidnapping all those years ago is a big piece of the puzzle.
This was a fantastic start of a new series. The Guardian's of Hope series will be made up of eight books. Ron's story is next.

Rescued from the Dark - Book Review
Author: Lynda Kaye Frazier
Genre: Contemporary Mystery/Suspense Romance
First Line: An explosion ricocheted behind Jason Michael's eyes as the pressure mounted in his head.
Mercy Kingsly, heiress of a big shipping company, plays hardball by forgoing marriage and her part as CEO of her family's company to follow her own secret career move and all that it inadvertently leads or takes her.
Jason Michaels, AKA David Logan in his undercover role, still carries a flame for Mercy. When she gets in harm's way, he must step in to save her, even if it means the cost of his own life.
Set against terrorists out for a major take-over in ways no one sees coming - what will the unraveling foretell and will Mercy and Jason survive it?
Ms. Frazier goes all out on this one. Espionage, terrorists, drugs, FBI, weapons, major memory loss, kidnapping, and who's the top-dog bad guy? A true `who done it'?
Danger, suspense, and suspicion rule every page of this fast action-packed tale. The relationship between Jason and Mercy runs through a number of obstacles and blocks.
It's the fastest read I've had in a long time, and not because this is a short story...it simply held me tight to the pages.
I love Jason's Alpha traits, but his constant patience with Mercy stole my heart. His staying power goes above and beyond ;)
Great ending...yes, Ms Frazier leave you hanging out to dry ;)
If you like detective tales, mysteries, high-tension, lots of action, and a good dollop of romance, you'll love this one.
Not just for women, read what this guy had to say.

Wow! What a great story. This novel has it all - antagonists who are pure evil, a complex plot with unexpected twists and turns and a very exciting and fast-paced ending. I don't normally read "romance novels", but the book's synopsis held the promise of an exciting story and I took a chance on buying it. I am certainly glad that I did. I am looking forward to more from this author.
