A former Navy SEAL, Cole Makani Hunter has returned home from a disastrous black ops mission without his best friend, his hearing, or the use of his right arm. So when his ex–commanding officer assigns him to an undercover mission at a rehab center for vets to discover who leaked sensitive military information to an enemy, he’d rather be anywhere but there. Almost immediately, Cole finds himself at odds with Annie Murray—a peace-loving ecotherapist whose dream is to open an animal sanctuary out of her home. While the two seemingly have nothing in common, their spirited arguments soon fuel a passion for each other.
But just as things begin to heat up between therapist and patient, dangerous complications arise. So does the past—and a shocking revelation that puts Cole and everything he now holds dear in the path of a murderous traitor.
Romantic suspense was one of favorite genre's for years. I finally got a bit burned out on it. Not for lack of great romantic suspense books out there to read just needing a change of pace for a bit. I still read the occasion one but not like i used to. Dana Marton gives us a great story with Silent Threat. One of my favorite things are military heros and heroines. Cole is a Navy Seal seriously injured in the line of duty. He's dealing with hearing loss and a right arm that is not fully functioning anymore. It doesn't stop him from being the bad ass he has always been. Even though he's suffering dealing with own injuries and coming to terms of what his life might be like now he still puts himself out there for others. Even when he really doesn't want to. Annie has a stalker. She knows who he is but really for me wasn't trying to hard to shake him off. Then stuff starts happening and she wonders if she hasn't got more than one. Cole and Annie clash from the beginning but no matter what happens keep getting drawn to each other. Annie is taking her own hits in her personal life but she's a giver at heart so nothing slows her down. I liked these characters. I became invested in them by the end of the book. Cole and Annie have/had so many obstacles in their lives and yet still try to be positive. Try to do what's right and try to be the best they can be and help others. The only thing i had issue with was the author using Cole's full name often. It seemed forced. It's used in the beginning to show his Hawaiian roots but it's not needed after that. I hope we get to see more of Cole and Annie in the follow up books in this series. I loved that the author added a epilogue at the end of the book. It was awesome to see what happens after THE END is written. I think Dana Marton might have brought me back to romantic suspense again!
