Review: London Calling by Veronica Forand

London Calling


Small town police officer Emma Ross loves her simple life––but it takes a hard turn into crazy when she’s kidnapped by MI6 and is put under the protection of an over-bearing, albeit sexy, Scotsman. A man who believes she’s lying to protect her father—a father whom she had no idea worked for British Intelligence and is now missing.

Liam Macknight’s partner was assassinated and he’s certain Emma’s father had something to do with it. But the stubborn woman isn’t talking, and she’s determined to get herself killed trying to find out the truth. Locking her in a room does no good––he tried that. So he’s forced to work with her, even if he’s not sure he’ll ever be able to trust her.

When he’s assigned to kill her dad to protect the identity of British spies in the Kremlin, he knows what little trust they’ve gained is about to be destroyed forever...

It is a very thrilling reading and I enjoyed reading a lot. The story is great and all the characters are very well-developed. There are undertones of romance but mostly it is a spy thriller.
The story begins with a tragedy when Liam Macknight loses his team mate and he is now willing to do anything to find and kill the people responsible. His life is complicated and his missions are never easy. He is the leader whose job is to keep his team alive. But sometimes things go wrong. He is a brooding man who doesn't really know how to have fun. And now, situation demands that he keeps his mind focused on the job. In this situation Emma Ross is a complication he doesn't need. Unfortunately, he has no choice. Emma's father is missing. He is either a traitor or he has been kidnapped for some other reason. In either case, Emma is now in danger and MI6 decided to force their protection whether she wants it or not.
Emma's life is turned upside down when her father goes missing. She learns that he wasn't who he said he was. She had no idea that he was lying to her about his job. Now she knows but there is not much she could do as long as MI6 decides to keep her away from the action. She can't believe that she must stay in hiding while her father might be dead. It's not like she is a completely helpless woman. But no worries, she does not plan to be a bystander in her own life. She is one bad ass heroine who can very well take care of herself.
All is all, a very well-written story that all readers can enjoy. I loved both Emma and Macknight. They are such a perfect couple and even though it is not exactly a romance novel but still I enjoyed that side of the story quite a lot.
P.S. I received a complimentary copy of this book.
