About this ebook


A SPEC OPS mission gone horribly wrong ignites an edge-of-your-seat adventure of dodging bullets, deadly chases, and the dangerous pull of an unwanted attraction.

When a high-stakes hostage rescue is crippled by bad intel, Lieutenant Commander Jason “Casanova” Vanderby’s helicopter is shot down in enemy territory. Under fire during a daring escape from the smoking wreckage, the SEAL who was once his best friend takes three rounds, complicating their egress plan - now Jason must hump the injured man to a nearby aid station. But Jason ends up bringing the humanitarian doctor more than a casualty.

A new terrorist horde is hot on his tail.

Now he’s on a run for his life across Pakistan with the safety of both the doctor and a wounded man sitting squarely on his shoulders. But the true test of his will has yet to come. Will he be able to keep this doctor, with her pure heart and striking, exotic beauty, at a firm arm’s length?

For eighteen years Dr. Farrin Barr had good reason to avoid men. Now she’s stuck with one. With his shuttered, handsome features, Jason is impossible to know, but there is safety for Farrin in this kind of detachment…until she must discover the real man beneath his defenses. Moved by what she finds, she tumbles into a night of incredible passion with him.

But nothing could have prepared her for it all to end with what she believes is their final heartbreaking goodbye…

HOLT Medallion winner, Readers’ Favorite Bronze Medal winner, 2017 Kindle Book Award Semi-finalist, MAN DOWN is the standalone slow-burn third book in the high-octane Wings of Gold Series by bestselling author Tracy Tappan.

MAN DOWN by Tracy Tappan I absolutely loved this book!!! Tracy Tappan has joined my list of favorite authors. I can count on her to deliver a story that is the complete package. I found her with the first book of this series. Man Down has everything! It has hot seals, lots of heat, well developed characters, and a story line that is believeable. This is the third book in the Wings of Gold series. It can be read as a stand alone book easily, but do yourself a favor and enjoy the whole series. This series has military jargon and a glossary in the back to explain. It has a behind the scenes look at military life. I am hoping that this series goes on for awhile. Man Down is a story about Lieutenant Commander Jason “Casanova” Vanderby, Doctor Farrin Barr, and also Petty Officer Shane “Mad Dog” Madden. This story starts out with our seals in training and having been best buddies for years. There's a falling out and their lives go on without each other for 10 years. Their paths cross again during their helicopter wreck during a rescue mission in Pakistan . They have to work together to survive. Dr Barr has her own issues that she had to overcome to be the woman she is now. I don't want to give anything away as this is such a great book full of surprises you need to find them out for yourself. Suffice it to say, this story is about Jason and Farrin. Shane needs his book next.
