This sequel to Forget Me Not picks right up where we left off. The men of SEAL Team Twelve are determined to clear Lt. Gabe Renault, aka Jaguar, of the charges heís facing. They know their commanding officer was behind the crimes, not Gabe, but they still donít know for whom heís working.

The FBI informs them that theyíve located Hannah Geary, the woman they believe may have the evidence that will clear Renaultís name and reveal the truth. Lt. Luther Lindstrom and Chief Westy McCaffrey head to Cuba to rescue Hannah. Before they can break her out of her cell, she manages to escape on her own, but if not for them she never would have made it out of the compound alive. With fear and adrenaline pumping through her system, sheís very relieved to have Lutherís arms there to hold her tight.

The FBI agrees that itís best if Hannah stays with the SEALís for protection and they take her shopping for a new identity. Despite the dowdy persona she cloaks herself in; Luther is still attracted to her. But heís looking for a woman who wants to be a wife and the mother of his children. Hannah wants to join missions overseas and do her part to protect her country.

Hannah also feels the attraction but has been working so hard to attain her goal as an agent that she doesnít want to get herself mixed up in a personal relationship. Doesnít it just figure that the only time she can escape her nightmares and sleep peacefully is when sheís in Lutherís arms?

In the Dark doesnít disappoint and was well worth the wait. Action, suspense and romance all combine to make up a book that you wonít want to put down. Sebastian and Leilaís relationship is more thoroughly explored and something is up with Westy. Heís rather intrigued by a certain woman, but weíll have to wait for the February 2006 release of Time to Run to see whatís up with that.
