With No Remorse by Cindy Gerard

A Dangerous Man: For Luke Colter, downtime is an illusion. He should know better then to ever leave his gun behind, especially since now he's risking his life to save world-famous supermodel Valentina.
A Rebellious Woman: Val thought traveling incognito through the mountains would be the perfect cure for her bruised heart...until someone tries to kill her. Without knowing who is after her--and why--does she dare trust her irresistible protector.
A Perilous Mission That Could Seal Their Fate: Luke's elite military training offers little defense against his feelings for Val. When the BOI team links her ruthless enemy to the cutthroat global weapons trade and to a man from her trouble past-he'll do anything to save her. So when Val offers herself as bait will he make the right call.... or surrender to the hold she has on his heart.
This is book 6 in the BOI series and I have to say I have always liked Luke or Doc as they call him, and I loved him more after this book. Book starts out with Luke on a train coming home from doing medical mission in the Peruvian Andes and having some doubts about himself after he was almost killed in the last book. He starts to feel a itch in his stomach and he has always learned not to ignore these feelings. He notices that sitting across from him is a boy wearing big glasses, a poncho and a hat. He thinks that is a little strange, but he is more worried about his itch then he is the boy. When the train is held up he is thinking first I don't have a gun and second why should I get involved?? When they kill an innocent man and then go after the boy he knows that somehow he has to help. He does this by getting the boy off the train.
Well, imagine his surprise when he finds out that the boy is not really a boy but one of the biggest super models in the world. What the heck was she doing on the train and why were these men after her??? Valentina can't answer the question. She has no idea why anybody is after her let alone that anybody knew where she was. She's just getting over a bad divorce and was trying to find herself again.
Luke and Val have instant feelings for each other. After all Luke has lusted after her pictures for years and knows just about everything you can know about Val. Val has feelings for Luke but after being burned she is unsure if she should really pursue them or not. Luke is very surprised to see that there is more to Val then just a pretty face.
When they meet up with the rest of the BOI team to try to figure out what is going on, poor Val finds out that her ex husband is a bigger loser then she thought, although he does come through for her in the end, he is still a jerk. Val goes through with being the bait so that they could catch the real bad man even though Luke is not happy with it.
I really enjoyed this book and will be very sorry to see the series end with the next book, which is about Joe, but I really want to know what sets Joe off from this book!!! It is sweet to see Luke really fall for Val, at first he doesn't think the job he has is a job that he could have a love in his life and because they both come from different backgrounds, but I loved that they worked it out and Luke sees that the other guys can still do the job and have a love in their life that he to can do that.
This was a great book that I had a very hard time putting down!! I didn't want it to end, heck I really don't want the series to end it has been so good. But I know Ms. Gerard won't let us down and will have more good books coming out.

I couldn't agree more Debra! This book was fantastic. I think anyone who has kept up with this series is happy to see Luke get his woman - and what a woman she turns out to be!

Excellent series, and I too hate to see it come to an end. But like you, I'm sure this great author already has something equally as good in the works.
