About this ebook

When you're already an adrenaline junkie Navy pilot, it’d be smart to avoid partnering with a sexy, reckless DEA agent on a deadly mission where any wrong move could land you in the sack with her… Oops, too late.


All but disowned by his father for joining the military, Lieutenant Eric “LZ” O’Dwyer now lives his life on the edge of danger. High-risk flying, lots of armed bad guys, and a vicious drug lord to take down are all the temptations he needs to jump onboard an interagency op with the DEA. He’s just not thrilled about having to get naked.


If Special Agent Nicole Gamboa has to do one more mission with a partner staring at her breasts, she’s going to hit somebody. Batter up, you damned cocky Navy pilot! Guaranteed this guy will take advantage of his dark Irish good looks to slip a little collateral seduction into their steamy mission. Let him try. A childhood spent in hiding has trained her how to harden herself.


But when their mission spirals out of control, Eric’s reaction to the catastrophe floors her, and her carefully built protections begin to crumble. Is this the one swoonworthy man she can depend on when the tables turn and the ruthless drug lord gets his steely hooks into her?


BEYOND THE CALL OF DUTY is the first in Tracy Tappan’s electrifying romantic suspense series about naval aviators—helicopter pilots of courage and honor who proudly wear the Wings of Gold.

BEYOND THE CALL OF DUTY is a great read! Tracy Tappan is rapidly becoming a favorite. She has most obviously done her homework. Tracy uses authentic military language, very well developed sexy characters and a solid hot story line. Hmmm, what's missing? NOTHING! This book has a most unusual plot development, that is intense, hysterical and sure to keep you turning pages. Eric O'Dwyer “Landing Zone” and Nicole Gamboa DEA agent are featured in this book. I urge you to give this a try.

I was hooked on Tracy Tappan’s Community series and liked her style of writing,so I tried her Wings of gold series. This is another great series from this author! I have read each and every one of her books in this and the Community series and recommend this authors work. Each of the characters in her novels are well developed and different from each other. I am patiently waiting for more from this author, well maybe not so patiently. I am hooked.
