“Bishop” has been released as part of a special anthology on Amazon, entitled “Desire After Dark”. It is on sale for $0.99!
“Bishop” is a novella by Em Petrova that also introduces us to ‘SEAL Team Blackout’. If this first story is any indication, it’s going to be a fantastic series.
After a mission gone wrong cost him one of his teammates ( who are as close as family could ever be), dedicated Navy SEAL Rob Bishop needed time and space away from everything connected to military life. He started to find some solace and peace being a ‘mountain man’ living in a cabin so remotely located it was basically off the grid of the world. When he unexpectedly stumbles across a woman stranded on the side of the road, his world gets shaken up again, although in an entirely new way.
Taliyah Trent was supposed to be getting married. Instead, she’s literally on the run, still in her wedding gown. She’s trying to escape to a remote cabin in the California wilderness and owned by a family member, because she unexpectedly discovered that her fiancé is not at all who she thought he was. In fact, he might be her biggest nightmare. She didn’t love the man, but she never imagined what his real motives were. When the gruff, sexy wild man in the only cabin nearby is there to save her, she’s both shocked and grateful. Taliyah and Bishop have to figure out a way to get to the bottom of the dangerous mess that destroyed her father’s life is trying to destroy hers. It’s made even more complicated because somebody is trying to kill her.
This is a well-written, fast paced story. It pulled me in so quickly and effectively that I couldn’t put it down – I kept having to see what would happen next. Within the great story the author layers in strong chemistry between the lead characters, scorching hot passion, some surprising emotional depth, a good mystery, suspenseful and humorous moments, and more. I thought the resolution was solid and I’m looking forward to this series!
