Rescuing Casey by Susan Stoker
Kidnapped in a jungle. Held captive for who knows what reason. Left in a hole to die. Casey Shea is in a heck of a spot, and she can only use her brain to save herself and hope her brother comes and gets her.
Publisher’s Description: One minute Casey Shea was minding her own business, doing her job, teaching entomology to college students, and the next she was in the middle of the Costa Rican jungle fighting for her life.
Troy “Beatle” Lennon had watched his friends fall head over heels in love, but never thought it would happen to him. Until he sees a picture of one of his teammates’ sisters. That was it. The absolute joy in her eyes calls to him in a way he can’t understand.
But that joy is currently being threatened by an unknown person who’d had Casey kidnapped and hidden deep in the jungle. It’s up to Beatle to find her and keep her safe until the threat against her can be neutralized. Surviving the dangers of the jungle turns out to be the easy part…staying ahead of the killer is much more complicated…and deadly.
Nervous Nellie’s nervousness necessitates knowledge of the novel. In other words… spoilers. *BEWARE*
Nervous Nellie says…
No cliffhanger, standalone military romance. No graphic sex but there is violence.
Casey and her students are captured and held hostage for unknown reasons. Luckily, there is a high profile person in her group that is missed right away. Help descends but no one knows what happened to Casey. She’s stuck in a hole in the middle of the jungle and left to die.
Troy and the rest of his team, including Casey’s brother are bound and determined to find Casey. It’s impossible, but with luck and intuition, they find her. This story starts out harsh, but when the romance starts then it lightens up some. It feels weird to have a romance bud in the middle of a high tension situation, but it happens. And then they go home.
I guess the romance that happens back in the states is a little too cut and dried, but the ending is fantastic. The suspense part comes to the reader in a flash of “Oh, no! She didn’t!!” It was great.
