When you have no alternative, then you call in L.O.S.T. Because with the Last Option Special Team, it’s do or die. . . .
It’s Jax Cassidy’s first mission for L.O.S.T.—one that will give the former cop who went rogue a chance to prove herself. Her assignment: gain the trust of assassin Marcus Cross . . . eliminate him . . . then take down Marcus’s mentor, Joseph Lazarus, a man with a bold eye on the White House. But the woman who’s known by her team for being a femme fatale succumbs to passion, only to discover Cross’s deadly secret. He’s a vampire, and Joseph Lazarus is his creator.
Left for dead by his platoon in the violent hills of Afghanistan, Special Ops sniper Marcus Cross was given a second chance at life. His newly heightened skills make him the perfect killing machine, and as Lazarus’s right-hand man, he’s quickly rising to the top of his dark empire, purging enemies with speed and precision. Only when dangerous beauty Jax Cassidy is sent to bring him in does he begin to question Lazarus’s motives and his own actions. But when Jax’s life is threatened by the one thing that can destroy them both, Marcus must make a bitter choice—her death or his.
This was a very good start to the series created by the author... It showcases a premise that has been used before but the main difference for me was the fact that I immediately connected with the main female and male leads... There are many strong book characters that over the years I have grown to love after reading 2-6 or more stories with them in the forefront. With this book "Enemy Lover" I have to say have found 2 more to add to my list of characters to want more reading time with... Jax Cassidy and Marcus Cross touched my imagination and I am looking forward to seeing what is in store for the next couple Nikko Cruz and Selena Guererro when Enemy Mine L.O.S.T. book #2 comes out in August....
I think that author Karin Harlow AKA Karin Tabke has created a good list of different genres for all types of readers and in looking over her back list under both names have put both her Medieval Blood Sword Legacy series and her first book in her Blood Moon Trilogy Paranormal Romance series on my wishing to read soon list!
