The Tactical Crime Division—TCD—is a specialized unit of the FBI.They handle the toughest cases in the most remote locations.
When TCD learns of a school invasion turned lockdown, every agent is ready to engage. With children in jeopardy, the stakes couldn’t be higher. But it becomes personal for hostage negotiator agent Evan Duran when he learns Annalise Taylor is one of the captives holed up with the students in a school for the gifted. He’ll need every resource available at TCD and every ounce of his expertise to turn this disastrous situation into a rescue mission—and if he succeeds, maybe reunite with the woman he never stopped loving.
This is the first book in the Tactical Crime Division series in the Harlequin Intrigue line by Harlequin Books by Carla Cassidy.
There wasn't a lot of romance in this and it was basically police procedural/detective fiction. But I am okay with that. The romance that was there is the kind I like. It is all about the emotions about two people who at one time were not really ready to be together and how this hostage situation made them both reevaluate their relationship.
This Tactical Crime Division takes on the hardest cases and it reminds me of the dynamic that Criminal Minds had in the beginning when the tv series started. This is definitely a series I want to continue on with. This is totally in my wheelhouse! Loved it!
If you love a good romantic suspense book, definitely check this one out. Harlequin Intrigue is my guilty pleasure read.
