About CITY UNDER SIEGE
London is a city in flames. Tensions are high and a critical situation is about to go from bad to worse. The Prime Minister wants to send a message, and the SAS will be the ones to deliver it.
Emotional detachment is my specialty. I’m ruthless and cut throat, but there is nobody better.
Sarah Tatem is an innocent. Caught up in a world in which she doesn’t belong, and trying desperately to do the right thing. My job is to keep her safe long enough to get what’s needed, and bring an end to this siege of terror.
But something has changed. I’ve learned that the only thing stronger than loyalty is love, and now she’s gone.
My name is Lieutenant Tom Harper, and I’m about to unleash hell.

Review by Susan:
Wow, just wow, this book has totally blown me away! I loved this authors previous series, I think I’ve read it about a million times, so I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this book, it doesn’t disappoint. This book sucks you in from the first line and literally spits you out at the end, it starts off with a bang and continues on at an even faster pace. I was literally hanging on the edge of my seat while reading this, the twists and turns leave you breathless and wondering what will happen next. I absolutely adored Sarah, she is literally thrown in at the deep end and although she is scared, she does the right thing which leads her to meet Tom. I loved that we get to see a tough, career soldier who doesn’t do attachments get brought to his knees when he meets Sarah, the chemistry between them literally sizzles the pages! This book left me with a huge book hangover that had me thinking about it long after I finished reading it. This is my favourite book I’ve read this year, I hope we get more books in this series. I truly wish I could give it more than 5 stars.
Read an excerpt from CITY UNDER SIEGE
I was practically kneeling in front of the screen as I tried to understand what I was seeing. Men were shouting at one another, though their words were indecipherable.
The person filming darted out from behind a shipping container to take more shots. Everything was happening so fast, the camera moving wildly with the person it was attached to. Finally, I realised it was a body cam by the way it was flailing and jerking all over the place. I had no idea what shipyard they were in, but it made sense that the assault would be there rather than a boat. They would have wanted to take the terrorists after the handover happened, just to be sure.
A soldier came into shot across the way, crouched behind another container, and I guessed he was one of ours. Covered from head to toe, it was impossible to know who it was, but I held my breath anyway. The camera at least became steady as the gunfire slowly ebbed, though focused now on the last of the targets. In the periphery of the screen, the kneeling soldier leant further forward to take a shot when he was yanked sharply backwards in a move that literally saved his life. As the last shot rang out, sounding a death knell to the terrorists who’d been responsible for taking so many innocent civilian lives, the rest of the team seemed to realise what I already knew. The rescuer, the guardian angel who’d ripped his teammate away from the path of certain death, had exposed himself to make the ultimate sacrifice, saving his friend’s life at the expense of his own. Soldiers darted in front of the camera again, and a few more indistinguishable voices called out before the silence. The excruciating, insufferable, tormenting silence, broken only by the clear voice that cut through the darkness like a scythe, ripping a hole through my heart as it did.
