The last time Talia Koslov saw Marshall Courage, he was fighting for his life after their mission had gone terribly wrong. Her patience has since been severely tested but after eight long months, she finally has him in her sights once again. By the look on Marshall’s face, to say he is surprised to lay eyes on her after everything that went down is quite the understatement. Anyone would think she’d had a choice in cutting all contact with the man after that horrible day. Maybe old wounds were better left alone, but now that Talia has finally tracked her agent down, she isn’t about to give up without a fight.

Tracking Talia is a companion piece to the author’s previous titles Tempting Tori and Lassoing Lara. I fell for Marshall Courage immediately; his tough, loner exterior hooking me in and his tender heart keeping me there, throughout his battle of wills with Talia. I was surprised at how quickly I got behind their relationship and wanted them to be together before I really even knew anything about their history. Talia is a refreshingly headstrong character who can open up her heart to another while still remaining true to herself. Between wanting to save each other from hurt while still protecting their own fragile hearts and their need to stay together after torturous time apart, Tracking Talia had just the right amount of drama, tension, frustration and passion to keep me hooked.
