Fatal Courage by Misty Evans

He ruined her career….image

In twenty-one missions, CIA golden girl Ruby McKellen has failed only once. Thanks to Navy SEAL Jaxon Sloan, the man who stole her heart and forced her to choose between him and her partner Elliot, she’s on probation and Elliot is in prison for national security crimes. To prove Elliot’s innocence and save her damaged career, Ruby is running an unsanctioned mission—but the only way to get the proof she needs is to go to Jax with her tail between her legs.

She wrecked his heart…

Jaxon left the Navy after the mission with Ruby in Morocco went south, but that one hot, unbelievable night with her will haunt him forever. Working for Shadow Force International now, his new assignment has brought him full circle—the CIA operative Jax’s testimony sent to prison has escaped and Jax has been ordered to hunt him down. Just like in Morocco, the one thing standing in his way is Ruby.

A second chance at love could prove fatal…

When Ruby’s life is threatened and Jax stumbles on information that might prove Elliot is innocent, guilt over putting the man in prison compels him to join her unsanctioned mission. What really happened that night six months ago? Is Elliot an honorable spy or a mastermind at manipulation? Ruby is the only one who can help Jax navigate the world of undercover lies and betrayal to find the truth.


Ruby is trying to clear her partners name after a botched mission that involved national security crimes, lands him in jail. The man who testified against him, Jax, was hired to hunt him down when word get out that Elliot, Ruby’s former partner has escaped from prison.

Ruby is the first person who Jax goes to knowing that Elliot will make contact with. Jax, Ruby and Elliot share a past and as Ruby proclaims his innocence Jax isn’t convinced. After sharing a one night stand with Ruby during the mission that had gone wrong, will their feelings get in the way when their lives and the life of Elliot hangs in the balance. Ruby wants answers to what happened in the botched mission in Marrakech and is willing to do anything to get those answers.
There is much more that went on behind the failed mission that Ruby now thinks that her partner may be guilty after all.

There is a lot going on in this book, so many layers that it’s hard to keep track of and who is behind what. It makes for fascinating reading and keeps you guessing up to the end. I loved how loyal Ruby was even when it seemed that everything she thought about Elliot was wrong she still stood by him. The amount of betrayal on all fronts leaves her battered but still fighting. Jax isn’t willing to let her go through it alone and stands behind her even when she put herself in danger to get the answers she is so desperate for.

Misty has a way of writing that is spellbinding, it draws you in and doesn’t let you go. You are transported to the world she has created and hate to see the last few pages dwindle away. The action scenes are top notch. The research that is involved and the attention to detail is incredible. She creates characters and situations that are very realistic. This series keeps get stronger with each book. Misty is my favorite action/romance writer and I always look forward to her next book, they never dissapoint!
