Description

A Texas covert ops specialist hunts down a serial killer in this romantic suspense series opener by the New York Times–bestselling author of Don't Look. From the hellhole of a Taliban prison to sweet freedom, five brave military heroes have made it home—and they're ready to take on the civilian missions no one else can. Individually they're intimidating. Together they're invincible. They're the men of ARES Security. Rafe Vargas is only in Newton, Iowa, to clear out his late grandfather's small house. As the covert ops specialist for ARES Security, he's eager to get back to his new life in Texas. But when he crosses paths with Annie White, a haunted beauty with skeletons in her closet, he can't just walk away—not when she's clearly in danger . . . There's a mysterious serial killer on the loose with a link to Annie's dark past. And the closer he gets, the deeper Rafe's instinct to protect kicks in. But even with his considerable skill, Annie's courage, and his ARES buddies behind him, the slaying won't stop. Now it's only a matter of time before Annie's next—unless they can unravel a history of deadly lies that won't be buried.Praise for Kill Without Mercy "A fantastic blend of romance and suspense . . . thrilling to the end." —Mary Burton, USA Today–bestselling author "Prolific Ivy . . . introduces an intimidatingly hot set of protagonists for her new contemporary romantic thriller series." —Publishers Weekly "If you want an action packed, steamy and hard-hitting mystery with a number of unexpected twists, then pick up Kill Without Mercy and you will not be disappointed." —Fresh Fiction

        November 2, 2015
        Prolific Ivy (Burned by Darkness) introduces an intimidatingly hot set of protagonists for her new contemporary romantic thriller series. The five men of Houston’s Ares Security are as much a brotherhood as a tightly functioning team, after their shared experiences in a Taliban prison. The opener throws Ares covert ops specialist Rafe Vargas, visiting Iowa to deal with his late grandfather’s house, into the arms of terrified accountant Annie White, the daughter of the serial killer known as the Newtown Slayer. It’s been 15 years since the murders, and Annie’s father is long dead, but the nightmarish visions she had as a child have returned, and she fears they may be linked to another killer. Ivy manages to make Rafe’s fierce protectiveness appealing without undermining Annie’s competence. The sex scenes feel a little mundane, but their pacing works to blend the erotic zing back into Annie and Rafe’s high-energy pursuit of the new serial killer. The Ares team’s dynamic includes support and accountability among the members, allowing the reader to indulge in the men’s aggressive sexuality without feeling like they might put women at risk. Agent: Evan Marshall, Evan Marshall Agency.

        December 15, 2015
        In the first of a Ivy's Ares Security series about five soldiers who met, survived, and bonded in a Taliban prison, Rafe Vargas returns to his small hometown to clean out his dead grandfather's house. He meets Annie White, the daughter of a dead serial killer, who has also returned because of disturbing visions, despite the hostility and discomfort she engenders in the locals, in particular the sheriff. When several women disappear, it becomes clear that either a copycat killer is on the loose or her father was innocent. Rafe and his buddies band together to help protect Annie while they try to figure out what is going on. While neither as exciting nor as sexy as Maya Banks' KGI series, this is in the same vein of fiction about ex-military, private-security groups and will appeal to the same audience. Hopefully the pace will pick up in subsequent stories in the series.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2015, American Library Association.)
