Officer Finn Hallan has never run from a fight. With Niall’s life and love at stake, he’s not about to start now.

 

Finn Hallan is a member of the elite Norwegian Emergency Response Unit, code name Delta. When the team is sent to respond to a hostage situation on an Oil Platform, he has to face demons he thought he had buried a long time ago.

 

Scottish engineer Niall Faulkner’s skills in oil platform decommissioning takes him to the Forseti platform at the worst possible time. When he’s captured by terrorists, his only thought is that he will never get to tell his lover how he really feels.

Can Finn keep Niall alive? Or will they both die at the hands of hijackers in the frigid waters of the Norwegian sea?

Book Review

An elite team of anti-terrorist specialists with a code name that demands respect? Check. Action-packed adventure with a side serving of love developing between men who would not normally consider each other as anything more than a one-night partner? Oh yes. And one of the most unusual settings I have ever found in gay romance—an oil platform about to be decommissioned? Put on your seat belts and get ready for one wild ride!

Finn is paid to be a hero. On call most of the time, he has been trained to be one of the best, and he is as proud of that as he is fierce when confronting the no-good lawbreakers who make his life, and that of all other men of the law, much harder than it should be. He is not the type for flowers and chocolate, and he has no interest in geeks, but when he meets Niall, somehow all those “rules” fly out the window. Not that he admits it at first, but when danger almost takes Niall from him, he realizes that some rules are there to be broken.

Niall, although he is a geeky engineer and thinks he is nothing special, is the real hero of the story for me. He overcomes his fears and manages to more than hold his own in a situation that would have most men give up. Honestly, what he manages to do, and how he keeps it together once the terrorists take over the platform is admirable. Shaking with fear the whole time, he still gets things done, and gets them done well.

If you like alpha men and the guys they fall for, if you enjoy unusual settings and spine-tingling action, and if you’re looking for a read that is as suspenseful as it is hot, you will probably like this novella. It’s short, to the point, and an adventure I don’t think you’ll quickly forget.
