About this ebook

A born protector, Asher signs up for jobs even the most trained men won’t take …


But finding a set of female autistic twins in mainland China—after someone has gone to a great deal of effort to make sure they are never found—isn’t easy. Finding those responsible behind the actual kidnapping is even harder …


Mickie, hired to look after the twins for the last six months, is still recovering from the trauma of being beaten and drugged, waking to find her adult charges gone. Beside herself already, then seeing Asher, her ex from ten years ago, is another sock to her gut. And to her heart. … She’s not the same person she was back then and, being with him again, shows her just how much she’d screwed up her relationship with him.


Yet betrayal, deceit and bodies litter their pathway as they struggle to save the missing women before the kidnapper’s assassins get close enough to take them out instead …

This is the 5th book in the fabulous Maverick series and, although it is a standalone, old friends from previous books pop up. Asher Tromblay had helped Beau Madison when Beau too the lead in a mission for the Mavericks and now it was Asher's turn to lead, this was a sort of initiation to gain entry into the Maverick team. The Mavericks were a black ops group made up of ex navy SEALS who were disillusioned with working with restraints and little budget. Asher was to have Ryker, and old friend and colleague, as backup and Beau was to be on mission control. The mission entailed locating and rescuing thirty year old autistic twins who had been kidnapped, they were the daughters of a very successful and wealthy wedding planner, the fly in the ointment was that the nurse who looked after the twins was Asher's ex fiance who had finished with him 10 years ago and broken his heart, she was to accompany them. The journey took them to China, it was fraught with danger, nothing added up and there was tension between Asher and Mickie. Who was behind the kidnapping ? as usual there were numerous suspects, why why were the twins kidnapped ? was it for the sex trade or were they being held for ransom. The body count escalated and Mickie was being set up to take the blame. Asher became very protective but could he get them out of China safely ? Could they pick up where they left off ten years ago. Another fantastic story from Dale Mayer, it twists and turns and has all the elements, murder kidnapping, extortion and of course romance. Highly recommended. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

I received a complimentary copy of this book and I am voluntarily reviewing it. This was a fast-paced book. Asher is the lead on this missing persons case. Two autistic twin former models were kidnapped in China. Asher will be working with Ryker and a "plus one". The "plus one" turns out to be his former ex-fiancee from 10 years ago, Mickie. Mickie is a nurse and has been working with the twins for the past 6 months. The book was well written and in my favorite dual POV format. There was a lot of mystery, murder and intrigue here. The spark between Asher and Mickie was slow to come into the story and reveal itself. The bedroom scene was highly glossed over but based on that, I can only recommend this to someone over the age of 18. Even though this is the fifth book of the series, this book can be read as a stand-alone.

Layers upon layers of intrigue. This one read as a well done mystery! Lots of possibilities with a few surprises at the end. This is Ashers story and we met him in Beaus, as he was Beaus back up. He heads to China with his back up Ryker and a second. A second who turns out to be his ex fiance who was a nurse to the twins who were kidnapped. I wasnt that fond of his ex and I have to say I liked Asher a lot better in Beaus. Beyond that this was a wild ride, car, boat, plane with double crossing, and plenty of villains to choose from, a really wild mystery. Thank you Dale Mayer an Booksprout for the arc! I freely volunteer my thoughts and opinions.

About the author

Dale Mayer is a USA Today bestselling author who writes for the young, the old and those in-between – no matter what the age. Some of her books are hot, some are sweet. Some will keep you up at night with a light on to keep the boogie man away and some you’ll want to cuddle close.


She’s long given up on trying to fit a specific genre. Instead she honors the stories that come to her – and some of them are crazy, break all the rules and cross multiple genres!


And that’s okay too.


There is one guarantee with each book – it will be a great read – each and every time.
