She's the last woman he ever wanted to see again...
After an official operation turned deadly, Jonas Crow began a new life in Grizzly Harbor with Alaska Force. But when fellow soldier Bethan Wilcox joins the group, she forces him to remember things he actively prefers to forget. That’s unforgivable enough. But now the two of them are forced together on a mission to uncover deadly secrets tied to their complicated past, and with the heat between them at a boil, forgiveness is the least of his worries...
And the only woman he needs.
Bethan Wilcox, one of the first women to make it through Army Ranger school, didn't join Alaska Force to deal with Jonas's foul temper. Or her own errant attraction to him. Thrown together in a race against the clock, they have to pretend to be a couple and play nice to throw the enemy off their scent. She knows better than to let their pretend love feel real...especially while time is running out.
Jonas has always been good at saving the world. But it’s Bethan he needs to save this time around—if she doesn’t save him first.

SPECIAL OPS SEDUCTION by Megan Crane
I thoroughly enjoyed Bethan and Jonas’ amazing story in Special Ops Seduction by Megan Crane, book five in her Alaska Force series.
This story had me on the edge, lost within, and not putting it down, as I drank in each page. Alaska Force is not the first time Jonas and Bethan have worked together. Like all members, both had been in the military and first met after Bethan pulled an injured Jonas from the wreckage of an IED explosion. She provided cover and protected him until he could be extracted.
You might think Jonas would have been grateful, instead he acts hostile towards her; he doesn’t like that she saw him at one of his weakest points, so he keeps her at arm’s length. Now the two of them are forced to work together on a mission to uncover fatal secrets that end up being tied to their past. Working together, as a “fake” couple, heats up the attraction and chemistry between these two to at least sizzle level.
Bethan is an interesting character. She rebelled against her father, was one of the first women to make it through Army Ranger school, was strong and independent, yet was a girlie girl inside; having the inside of her cabin painted pink with frills. She has closed herself off, not allowing others to see this part of her. Since their first meeting, Bethan has cared about Jonas, feelings that have grown over time to an attraction that she works hard to hide.
Jonas had an awful childhood and was never taught how to love; at least by example. He doesn’t need anyone in his life, let alone give in to the feelings and magnetism he has for Bethan. Jonas has always been good at saving the world, but this time he needs to save Bethan; if she doesn’t save him first.
Ms. Crane wrote an intense, emotional and exciting romantic suspense filled with sizzling chemistry, magnetism, wonderful dialogue, and endearing characters that is not to be missed. This story grabbed me and did not let go until I reached the end. I highly recommend Special Ops Seduction to other readers.
