Jina Modell works in Communications for a paramilitary organization, and she really likes it. She likes the money, she likes the coolness factorand it was very cool, even for Washington, DC. She liked being able to kick terrorist butts without ever leaving the climate-controlled comfort of the control room.But when Jina displays a really high aptitude for spatial awareness and action, shes reassigned to work as an on-site drone operator in the field with one of the GO-teams, an elite paramilitary unit. The only problem is she isnt particularly athletic, to put it mildly, and in order to be fit for the field, she has to learn how to run and swim for miles, jump out of a plane, shoot a gun...or else be out of a job.Team leader Levi, call sign Ace, doesnt have much confidence in Jinawho he dubbed Babe as soon as he heard her raspy, sexy voicemaking it through the rigors of training. The last thing he needs is some tech geek holding them back from completing a dangerous, covert operation. In the following months, however, no one is more surprised than he when Babe, who hates to sweat, begins to thrive in her new environment, displaying a grit and courage that wins her the admiration of her hardened, battle-worn teammates. Whats even more surprising is that the usually very disciplined GO-team leader cant stop thinking about kissing her smart, stubborn mouthor the building chemistry and tension between them.Meanwhile, a powerful Congresswoman is working behind the scenes to destroy the GO-teams, and a trap is set to ambush Levis squad in Syria. While the rest of the operatives set off on their mission, Jina remains at the base to control the surveillance drone, when the base is suddenly attacked with explosives. Thought dead by her comrades, Jina escapes to the desert where, brutally tested beyond measure, she has to figure out how to stay undetected by the enemy and make it to her crew in time before theyre exfiltrated out of the country.But Levi never leaves a soldier behind, especially the brave woman hes fallen for. Hes bringing back the woman they left behind, dead or alive....

Linda Howard has always been a favorite of mine. Some of her titles are more romance, and others are more adventure, but I always enjoy them.
In this one, the adventure, the Go Team and the training for it, is the focus. I enjoyed the idea of a woman in the training for the teams and the push and pull between getting her trained and making sure that she was physically able to handle the rigors of the training.
Jina and Ace are attracted to ...more
The last good Linda Howard book was in 2008. But she used to be one of my favorites, so...I'll keep trying.
This must be a week for new-to-me authors, as this is another new one for me. Though I have had Linda Howard on my TBR for a really long time, I just haven't found time to fit her in until now. And now I want to go back and read the whole back list! This was a great romantic suspense!
The premise revolves around GO Teams, a secret sect of the government sending highly specialized and trained teams out into dangerous situations to address whatever situation is needed. Unfortunately the teams, and ...more
I thoroughly enjoyed this military like romantic suspense novel - The Woman Left Behind by Linda Howard. It was pure escapist reading, that kept me up reading two nights in a row.
Jina or "Babe" as her team name her to her disgust, is a gritty, sassy and very able young woman who just cannot quit. Her brothers have given her the basis for that and now when she finds herself thrown into a entirely new and different experience, she does not give up.
The team is a little like a Seal team, they train ...more
Jina liked her job in Communications for the anti-terrorism GO-teams. She is not happy that her high scores in a company videogame have her reassigned to join one of the teams in the field, although the drone she gets to fly in support is very cool. But Jina is not a quitter--it isn't in her--so she guts through the training. It doesn't help that the head of the team is a very sexy guy--who makes it very plain that there will be no relationships between teammates. Luke would be happy to see her ...more
This was a good story but there was somethings I wish where different. Not nearly enough romance, there needed to be more scenes between the MCs. This was a very slow burn which normally I love but it seemed to be missing something. I will say that I was happy that there was absolutely no other women drama in this one. And no mention of OW during the time that they are dancing around each other. I always loved the movie G.I Jane and even though I've seen it a billion times, I always hope that Ja ...more
