No Regrets by Shannon K. Butcher
Series: Delta Force #1
Published: February 1, 2007 by Forever
Genre: Suspense Romance
Renowned cryptologist Noelle Blanche refuses to have blood on her hands. So when the military asks for her help in a covert operation, she refuses–until masked gunmen raid her home and threaten her life. Suddenly it’s all too clear that any blood spilled may be her own. Noelle has no choice but to trust the dangerous stranger sent by the military to safeguard her. A stranger who is everything she detests, everything she fears…and everything she desires.
Former Delta Force operative David Wolfe thought he had left it all behind–the horror, the hurt, the guilt. But now the men who savagely murdered his wife have set their sights on a brilliant cryptologist who can lead them to the cache of weapons they prize. As passion ignites between David and the woman he’s sworn to protect, what began as just a mission escalates into the fight of his life. But can he prevent history from repeating itself?
This book was enjoyable but as I try to think of things to write, I’m struggling to remember anything that really made an impression. There was interesting action, a pretty decent love story, redemption for David but overall it didn’t really stand out. I liked both Caleb and Grant and I plan to read their books. The story isn’t too bad and it had plenty of action and suspense with a worthy bad guy. However, I don’t think this will stick in my mind for long.
I’ll be honest and say that I don’t really like reading romances with a widower because there’s a lot of conflicting emotions. Widowers are often, justifiably, deeply hurt over losing their spouse and often feel guilt over moving on. This is sometimes too much reality for me and I always feel really bad for the new love interest who has to live in the dead spouse’s shadow. All that being said, things weren’t too bad in this one.
