Today we are thrilled to be bringing you STEALING VENGEANCE, the kick-off title to a brand new romantic suspense series by New York Times and
USA Today bestselling author Kaylea Cross.
She’s an expert at getting into places she doesn’t belong.
The government created Megan, transforming her into a Valkyrie—a deadly operative only whispered about in certain circles. They took everything from her and made her into a weapon. Now someone is leaking secret information about her sisters-in-arms, betraying them for money. Loyal Unto Death is the Valkyrie motto. So when Megan is recruited to find who leaked the files, she takes the high-risk assignment. Even if it means working with the man who betrayed her trust long ago. Even if it means giving her life. Because she’ll do whatever it takes to find justice.
But this is one situation she can’t escape from on her own.
Tyler Bergstrom never forgot the resourceful woman who escaped during the toughest phase of SERE school. So when he learns the stunning truth about her and his unwitting part in her past, he volunteers to work alongside Megan for a chance at redemption. Except she doesn’t want a partner. Doesn’t want to let anyone into her life, including him—hell, especially him. Yet whether she likes it or not, for this mission they’re partners. Now it’s a race against the clock to bring down the shadowy figure targeting Valkyries. But the threat goes deeper than they ever imagined. No one is safe. And if they can’t overcome the past and learn to trust each other, they’re both dead.

This is the first book I have read by this author, an action-packed romance with deadly femme fatales; it’s going to be a great rollercoaster thrill ride this one.
When Megan, a Valkyrie operative trained by the government, finds herself back in the game, little did she know that the man assigned to be her partner is somebody from her past. Megan was trained to be the best in her field by a covert military group, and that soon becomes handy when she has to find the traitor who is responsible for selling out the identities of Valkyrie agents.
Tyler is an ex-military who’s assigned to work with Megan. His guilt and remorse will make him do whatever he can to make it up to the woman he betrayed in the past. But the highly skilled thief not only steals valuable objects, but will also steal his heart.
What I like about this book is that it is first and foremost an action thriller that features highly- trained female agents, the steamy bed scenes are just a bonus. Megan’s hard-as-nails persona starts to gradually melt when she gets to know more of Tyler’s character and soon learns to trust him. The introduction of other important characters which I think will be featured in the next book adds more dimension to this thriller. The author narrates high-octane action scenes but doesn’t make it too technical for those of us who are not tech-savvy in weapons and logistics, just enough to titillate our senses and whet our appetite for more books of this genre.
I did a little research on the previous works by the author and found out that some of the characters here have their own stories from a different series. I quite enjoy it when there is a cross-over; the more interesting personas that you only get a glimpse of from previous stories gives you a chance to learn more about them in the new books. Tyler and Megan’s relationship gets closure in this tale but Amber another Valkyrie agent will carry on with her mission onto the next, Covert Vengeance (Vengeance #2) and I am looking forward to reading it. I thoroughly enjoyed Megan’s story and I am sure you will too.

Revenge came at a heavy price.
Valkyrie hacker Amber Brown is deadly in her own right, but her preferred weapon is a keyboard. So after her teammates left her for dead, she took her revenge the way she was trained to—swiftly and brutally. Except one of her targets might be innocent. To right that wrong, Amber vows to rescue the at-risk Valkyrie no matter the cost, and this time she’s working alone. So when a sexy stranger shows up in the middle of a firefight and announces he’s been sent by her sister, it’s going to take a whole lot more than his word to make her trust him.
Chasing redemption may prove deadly.
Elite gun for hire Jesse Cordova lives on the edge of the law. When a new job offer sets off warning bells, he digs deeper and finds the startling truth. The woman he’s been tasked with capturing is a secret government assassin, and Amber Brown is unlike any target he’s gone after before. But bringing her in opens them up to a whole new level of danger, pitting them against one of the most ruthless assassins in the world. Now that the sexy Valkyrie has stolen his heart, Jesse will risk everything to see their mission through—knowing that the only way this ends is with one of them dying.
