Alpha Delta

by RJ Scott

Officer Finn Hallan has never run from a fight. With Niall’s life and love at stake, he’s not about to start now…

Finn Hallan is a member of the elite Norwegian Emergency Response Unit, code name Delta. When the team is sent to respond to a hostage situation on a Oil Platform in the Norwegian Sea, he has to face demons he thought he had buried a long time ago.

Scottish engineer Niall Faulkner’s skills in oil platform decommissioning takes him to the Forseti platform at the worst possible time. When he’s captured by terrorists, his only thought is that he will never get to tell his lover how he really feels.

Can Finn keep Niall alive? Or will they both die at the hands of hijackers in the frigid waters of the Norwegian sea?

While there are some romantic elements to the story (with Finn & Niall meeting and hooking up), this is more of an adventure story.  Which is fine, just not quite what I expected  🙂  But don’t get me wrong, I really, really enjoyed it.  I do have to warn you though that it is a short read … although that doesn’t stop Scott from delivering a heck of a ride.

Finn & Niall meet at a conference and their attraction to each other isn’t what they expect but it also can’t be denied.  With their schedules though getting together isn’t all that easy, plus Finn isn’t much for relationships.  It doesn’t stop them from falling for each other – it just keeps them from talking about it.  Then, the hijacking of the oil platform with Niall on it happens.  Now keeping his distance is the last thing on Finn’s agenda.

It’s refreshing that Scott has Niall be as important to the operation as Finn.  He doesn’t have the training but he does have a sharp mind and a lot of guts.  He’s not willing to go down without a fight and will do whatever he has to to help Finn do his job.  There’s a lot of hair-raising moments that will keep you glued to the pages and you’ll feel a little worn out by the time it is all over.  But in my mind that’s the mark of a really great storyteller – I got so caught up in it that I felt like I was right there with them every step of the way!
