Ethan’s Promise by Lindsay Cross…Blog Tour Stop & Review


The Omega Team: Ethan’s Promise by Lindsay Cross

A Men of Mercy Novella

Release Date: May 24, 2016



Ethan Slade was a loner. No parents. No wife and kids. No liabilities. He had one love in his life – the Special Forces. As a member of the elite Task Force Scorpion, he’d been on more near death missions than most soldiers experienced in a lifetime and he liked it. So when his commander put him on a forced two-week vacation, Ethan did the only thing he could – took Grey Holden and Team Omega up on an offer for another mission: provide protection to a senator’s daughter at her wedding.

Kate Richards had a chip on her shoulder. After being fired from her job as a CIA analyst because her boss wanted her in his bed instead of behind a computer, Kate was left without a job or a clue as to what she would do next. Then ran into Athena Madero, who’d had her own problem with asshole bosses and offered Kate a new job – come work for her private security company, Team Omega.

After years of ribbing and sexual harassment, Kate wanted nothing to do with men. Period. Especially tall, dark and handsome alpha male operative Ethan Slade. The last thing Ethan wanted or needed was to give up his life as a roamer, avoiding any attachments or obligations. But neither of them is prepared for the instant eruption of desire at their first meeting.

The two come together in an explosion of passion so potent it will leave them both marked for life. But just as quickly as they’ve come together, Kate is violently ripped from his fingers, and it’s up to Ethan to rescue the woman he’s come to love before he ends up alone again.



Every time I read a military romance I remember how much I love them. Like, really, really love them. Give me a guy who fights for his country and honor and drop him into a story where his heart is on the line as well as his life? I’m all in, People. All. In.

The Omega Team: Ethan’s Promise is the seventh book in the Men of Mercy series by Lindsay Cross. It’s the first one I’ve read, but I’ll be going back and reading all of them. ALL OF THEM, I SAY.

Our hero, Ethan, had me from the beginning. Big, brawny guys who want to get the bad guy as revenge are high on my list.

Blood fueled by the need for revenge surged through Ethan’s veins and he clenched his hands into tight fists in his lap. “I want to go now.”

The desire for retribution against the man responsible for so many deaths demanded attention, and Ethan had every intention of being the first boots on the ground. He’d need to do a little bit of restocking and resupplying. Ethan’s favorite combat boots and Camelbak water pack had been destroyed in the explosion at headquarters, along with his laptop. He’d need to ask Hank James, the man who’d supplied the land for TF-S’s headquarters, if he could store his motorcycle in his barn.

“You’re not going anywhere. I got a call from Joint Special Operations Command, JSOC, today. You’ve already gone over the number of sequential days on duty.”

Oooh, now he’s a brawny, bent-on-revenge, and pissed off hot military operative! Seriously, this book was like catnip for me.

Despite all of Ethan’s protests, he has to take two weeks of R&R before he can join his comrades in the hunt for their enemy, Mr. J, a former CIA operative turned traitor, who tried to murder everyone on Ethan’s team and their families. He’s not happy, folks. Not happy at all. But his buddy has a quick protection job that pays easy cash and that will keep Ethan occupied. A senator’s daughter is getting married and needs babysitting.

Enter our heroine, Kate. She’s an analyst who’s getting out from a boss who likes to cop a feel without asking. She’s smart and her instincts are good, but her field work is rusty. She joins the team but needs a refresher course on her field skills. Ethan gets to train her. Lucky, lucky girl.

The sparks fly off the page between these two almost from the get go. Scorching hot chemistry! Their cushy protection job takes a twist and boom! We’re off to the races.

If you like military series with a group of crazy hot guys who would lay down their lives for each other, check out Ethan’s Promise. I’m new to this author and this novella is a crossover for two of her series, Men of Mercy and Omega Team, but the story didn’t require having read any of the other books. But I’m going to read them all now that I’ve had a taste.
