Jace Kaiser is a man without a country, without connection. His only loyalty is to the group who saved him, and the man who leads them.
The assignment should have been easy. Capture a deadly assassin and take her to HQ. But flawed intel leads to disaster, and Jace abducts a beautiful art appraiser instead. Intrigued by her courage, he's drawn to her in ways he can't explain. Dr. Madeline Cole stood up to him, fought for her identity, and never backed down. She's the kind of woman he could fall for if it wasn't so dangerous--for her.
Then Maddy is targeted for elimination because she's the sole person who can identify the mysterious female assassin--and the only thing standing between her and certain death is the sexy mercenary who swears he'll die before he lets anything happen to her. As the passion between them ignites, it seems clear that keeping Maddy safe has become the most important assignment of Jace's life.
Even then, protecting her might not be enough--because Jace has secrets that could destroy them both. And someone is determined to unmask them all...

Finally we get to see inside Black’s Bandits!
After years of waiting (im)patiently for more on Black’s Bandits, Ms. Harris did not disappoint! This first book of the series contained all of the intrigue, suspense, action, and love that I’ve come to expect from her writing. I loved getting an inside glimpse at what makes Ian Black tick, and getting to know his men. Jace and Maddy were so perfect for each other from the word go, even if they both had their doubts. The chemistry was so palpable. I can’t wait to read more as each of Black’s Bandits finds their HEA...
All I can say is I was not expecting that turn in the storyline. Maybe I should have, but it came as a surprise. And let me say, Ian has his hands full if he thinks he can contain Calypso.
Black's Bandits are going to make for an interesting series. Everyone has a story to tell and rules are meant to be broken. I can't wait for the next book in this series. Will it pick up right where Black List left off, or will it wait to resurrect some of the ghosts from this story?
Ms. Harris is a master storyteller and only time will tell where this series will go. I'm hoping to see glimpses of the HOT guys in this series periodically similar to the way we see the Bandits in the HOT books. Until the next book ...
Action, adventure, mystery, and secrets. I couldn't get enough of Jace and Maddy. The way they meet is crazy, and then he's got to keep her safe because they find she's in danger. But he can't stay away from her, so things get really steamy- of course. There were a couple of bits that were difficult since I've had family members in the situation that Maddy has with her grandmother. I think that makes her a relatable character, because so many people will be able to relate. Jace can't help but give her his heart, even when he knows better because of who he really is.
This is a great start to a new series by Lynn Raye Harris. And if you haven't read either of the other HOT series before this one, you may wonder about Ian Black, but you won't be totally lost. However, for long time readers of HOT you'll love the tidbits that we're given of who he is. He is still an enigma, but that just makes me want more of him.
