SPY HARD (4) by Dana Marton: Soldier Jase Campbell has been working undercover for a year in the den of one of South America’s most brutal crime lords, Don Pedro, when he comes across the beguiling and troubled Melanie Key — the pregnant, widowed sister-in-law of the man he’s hunting. She has to get out of the compound before she has the baby Don Pedro covets. Nearly blowing his mission, Jase strikes out with Melanie and a 6-year-old orphan who needs his help. Between battling dangerous beasts on four feet and two, Jase might just find the chance for a life he never thought he’d have. Marton skillfully layers the intrigue and danger and makes sure the bad guys get their comeuppance.
