The elite SEAL Team 16 Troubleshooters squad is called upon once again to take down a group of terrorists who have hijacked a commercial airplane in this densely plotted romantic thriller. Woven amid the exhaustive drills and daily dramas of the mission, there are three romantic threads: a wistful WWII romance recalled by a Holocaust survivor; a turbulent relationship between SEAL Sam Starrett and FBI sharpshooter Alyssa Locke; and a burgeoning romance between the team's Senior Chief Stanley Wolchonok and helicopter pilot Teri Howe. When Teri asks Stan to help her keep a harassing officer at bay, his instincts are to comfort her and crush the officer. Instead, Stan arranges for her to accompany his team on a cushy training op that quickly turns into a real-life rescue mission. Teri doesn't mind being in the middle of the action, and she's eager to spend time with the fierce but compassionate senior chief. Meanwhile, Sam struggles to earn Alyssa's trust; the FBI's negotiator tries to keep his dealings with an American hostage from growing too personal; and the SEALs prepare to take out the terrorists.

This author is capable of better.
I like romance books because they always have a happy ending. This one was disappointing for me.

Another wonderful installment in Brockmann's Troubleshooters series. I love the blend of WWII storytelling interwoven with modern military/counter-terrorism adventures - especially knowing that this book was originally published in September 2001. Stan and Teri are both awesome characters, even though it bordered on painful to watch them dance around each other at times. Sam and Alyssa's story just keeps breaking my heart, but it's still oddly satisfying. Likewise with Max and Gina. Brockmann's pacing, as always, is excellent: plenty of suspense and heartfelt moments (both romantic and platonic), and it never feels like it's being shoved down your throat. I'm looking forward to the next book, Out Of Control.

It was only fitting, Mother said, that this ring should go to Hershel's bride.
