Danielle Roark served her country faithfully, experienced brutal torture, and escaped with vital information about the enemy. However, when she returns to the United States, she is accused of espionage and forced to return to Venezuela to gather evidence for her own defense. Former Green Beret medic Canyon Metcalfe is haunted by memories of the past. Drawn to Danielle, he pushes for Nightshade, his team, to accompany Danielle on the mission. Things go terribly wrong from the beginning of the mission and once he and Danielle are seperated from his team members, the chances of survival appear slim. Fighting mistakes of the past and present, Canyon must persevere without distraction to save Danielle's life. Will he be strong enough for both of them? Or is he condemned to fail because of all of his past mistakes?
I almost passed over the opportunity to review Wolfsbane by Ronie Kendig, but I am so glad I didn't. I generally don't go for military/war type stories. However, this one was so good, I'll probably be borrowing the rest in the series from the local library very soon. The suspense of the plot is tantalizing while the vivid characters are extremely real. No idealized or superficial characters here. Danielle and Canyon both make mistakes, but ultimately, the story is about owning up to those mistakes and trusting God to take care of the rest. There were a few plot twists that I wasn't expecting and it elevated the seriousness of the story. Overall, a great read for fiction and romance lovers alike.
