The best of the best just got sexier...Book 1 in the award-winning Wings of Gold Series.

“Love this story! There's nothing like a strong sexy woman and a hot hunky guy to make a great couple! Exciting adventure, hot sex, and even a little comedy thrown in (Mikey is a hoot!) makes for a great story.”
~ Fan review

Eric “LZ” O’Dwyer, a senior lieutenant stationed out of San Diego, is in command of his own helicopter detachment out of the HSM-75 Wolf Pack. Deployed off the coast of South America on a counterdrug operation, Eric jumps at the chance to take down a ruthless drug lord. But to do it, he’ll have to join forces with badass DEA Agent Nicole Gamboa.

Infiltrating the drug lord’s mansion is crucial to the mission, and to pull it off, Eric and Nicole have to play out an intimate scene together that leaves them both reeling. In the aftermath, Eric wants to foster something real with Nicole, but there is a secret part of Nicole’s life that makes a relationship impossible.

The mission erupts again, and Nicole and Eric end up relying on each other in ways they’d never predicted. The stakes are raised to their highest when the drug lord gains the upper hand, and living or dying hinges on a final showdown between Nicole and her past…and whether Eric can get to her in time!

Awesome read!! Could not put this book down. Great characters with suspense and humor with steamy good sex!!

Laughing from the first sentence!

I've enjoyed Tracy's other series, Bloodline, and took a bit of a jump to see what this one offered. And WOW was I glad I did! I LOVE love love her strong, sassy lead females and brooding men who have to work for what they want without pissing off (too bad) their intended love interest! The setting is interesting and the technical lingo is a bit confusing at first which makes the glossary very handy if you aren't familiar with the military aviation world. The chemistry is great, the supporting characters have substance and the conflicts are believable. A+

An exceptional story full of scorching hot romance and pulse-pounding action!

I have never read a hotter, more intense, almost-love scene EVER. As alluded to in the synopsis, Nicole and Eric have to play out an intimate scene as the cover for their real mission. Let me just say that the tension leading up to and the emotions surrounding that scene were!!!

Tracy DEFINITELY knows how to write a sexy hero! Eric was absolutely perfect, with his good-looks, bravery and vulnerability.

Nicole was very realistic in every way; an independent career-woman who was forced to hide her softer side in order to survive in a male-dominated industry.

The imagery during the action scenes was absolutely phenomenal! I could clearly hear the helicopter blades rotating and feel the wind whipping.

The amount of research Tracy put into this book is absolutely remarkable. While I am no expert, the acronyms and lingo she inserted into the story added a realistic element to it. The unfamiliar words and phrases were accompanied by a convenient hyperlink that takes the reader to a glossary. I loved this, because the definitions weren't awkwardly inserted into the story.

(This book has a "prequel" titled Eightball Two-Three. While I feel this book can be read without reading Eightball, I do recommend reading it before this book!)

All in all, this is one of those books that I stayed up waaaaay too late reading and could not put down because it's THAT good. I couldn't get enough of this book, and I can't wait to read more in this series!!!!!!!
