Mystery
(Fic)
Love's Critical Ground: Team Reliant
by L.K. Thompson, LTC (Ret.)


A team of Army Intelligence Operatives is ordered to find and thwart a North Korean sneak attack aimed against US Army installations in South Korea. The strange love story is set against the sometimes-terrifying efforts of a US Army Special Forces team and the lone woman on the team. Initially the attraction that Aleumdaun, the female of the team, feels for the selfish, self-gratifying Slover moves forward with bumpy moments while they work with the other team members to eliminate their North Korean nemesis. The team commander and the woman are concerned about the man’s wayward, ideas. "Sounds interesting!"

Prologue
