Aspen Courtland is a former Air Force JAG assistant who wants nothing more than to find her missing twin brother, Austin.  He served in the military and went missing on a mission.  He has been missing so long he has been declared dead, but Aspen refuses to believe it.  She has brought his military war dog, Talon, home to heal as he suffered from the separation from Austin.  He is a beaten down dog and acts depressed.  Aspen has been working with him for months and he seems to be slowly recovering.  Enter Dane Markoski or Cardinal as his boss calls him.
Cardinal has been given the mission of finding Austin and protecting Aspen and Talon.  He is a trained spy, but doesn’t feel right manipulating Aspen and playing on her fears.  He tries his best to keep his distance from her emotionally as he feels he is unworthy of her affections and his past will scare her away if she finds out.  As sightings of Austin as well as other clues of his existence crop up, the danger mounts.  Why is Austin hiding from his only living relative, Aspen, a twin sister he was extremely close to?  Cardinal has always felt peaceful inside church buildings, but can he find that peace elsewhere?
This book will pull you in from beginning to end.  There is plenty of action, tension and romance for any reader.  I read book one, Trinity:  Military War Dog, and couldn’t put it down.  This second book in the series is no different, with something always happening.  The romance between Aspen and Cardinal was touching, and I loved his willingness to confront his greatest fear for her sake.  Aspen also encouraged Cardinal in finding his way to God after having a horrific childhood.  I eagerly look forward to the third and final book in the series, Beowulf:  Explosives Detection Dog, so look for my review here soon!
My rating is 5 stars.
