About this ebook

Get in and get out—he treats his relationships just like his high-stakes missions.

“Mrs. Tappan writes one of the best accounts of today's military fighting man/woman... The characters are so real, and the story so enthralling, that you don't want to put the book down!”

~ Fan review


Lieutenant Kyle “Mikey” Hammond operates on self-destruct: wild partying, one-night stands, and toxic relationships. Right on target, the night before he’s due to provide security for a journalist in Pakistan, he pulls a pre-emptive screwup with her. Never one to make a bad situation better, he continues to go heavy on the flirtation. When undeniable feelings for the spunky, unshakeable woman grow, it’s time to pull another one of his usual moves: bail out.


A master at dealing with violent terrorists, LA Times journalist Samantha Dougin is called in to negotiate the release of four American hostages. But something fishy is going on, and her days reel between insane, high-speed danger and tense downtime. Shamelessly curious, Samantha must - as a woman and a reporter - take advantage of the lulls to strip the charismatic Navy lieutenant of his potent charm. Their explosive battles ignite passion in the bedroom, but just as their feelings for each other deepen, time runs out.


A devastating deception catapults the mission into Defcon Holy Crap, and with the lives of four hostages on the line, Kyle and Samantha have no choice but to hurl themselves blindly into the worst.


The bestselling and award-winning Wings of Gold Series IS BACK with a brand-new thrilling standalone romance where two total opposites discover they’re made for each other.


BONUS CONTENT: Includes an emotional journal entry from a real-life pilot who survived a helicopter crash.


Content guidelines: contains profanity and adult situations.

ALLIED OPERATIONS, I loved this book!!! I was unable to put it down when I started until it was finished. Tracy Tappan has a gift for writing a solid, well developed, realistic story line with military jargon. She does include a glossary for the explanation of the jargon. She obviously knows what she is talking about, as a military spouse, she lives in this world. Tracy has created characters that you really care about and cry for. This is the second book in the Wings of Gold series. You would not have to read the first book before Allied, but it would give you background on Kyle. I will be anxiously awaiting on the next installment to this series. I personally love military romance. l am going to be looking up other books by Tracy Tappan as she is now on my must read list. Lieutenant Kyle “Mikey” Hammond and Samantha “Max” Dougin are the couple in this story. At the end of Allied, Tracy shares with us a personal event that happened.
