Wild Card picks up with
the rescue of Navy SEAL Nathan Malone. The problem is that
Nathan has been tortured and drugged so long will he ever
completely recover? Nathan is convinced that he no longer
exists as the man as many once knew and loved so he assumes
and new identity and has them notify his wife that he has
died. But, the one thing he has never forgotten is his vows
to Bella and his love for her. So while he is a new, harder
man, Noah will have a hard time with his latest assignment.
Now Bella is directly in the path of a terrorist
organization (the Black Collar Militia) and Noah will do
whatever it takes to keep her safe.
Bella has mourned Nathan for three long
years, and then she decided to do everything she could to
save their home and business. She struggles with dating, as
she still feels connected to Nathan, even though she never
let him see the real inside of her. But now the mysterious
Noah is stirring up all those feelings, and leaving her
unsettled in her life and thoughts.
Will Noah and Bella allow their fiery
passion for each other to fulfill its destiny or will the
Militia kill them all first?
Let me start by saying wow, wow, wow,
as that is all I could think of when finishing Wild
Card. I have to admit I think I cried for the first
50 pages of the story. Ms. Leigh goes down a darker path in
Wild Card than she has in many of her other books; she deals
with the aftermath of torture and almost hopelessness.
