Publisher's Summary

"Proving Ground is an intriguing story filled with tension. A strong debut." - New York Times best-selling author Laura Griffin
Screw-ups don’t get second chances. That’s what Caitlin Malone believes when she returns to Oregon after failing her first Northstar Security assignment. When she inadvertently stumbles across a plot to steal deadly pathogens from the bio-lab near her hometown, she sees a chance at redemption.
USDA Forest Ranger John ‘Mac’ MacAlistair doesn’t want to babysit the motorcycle club holding their annual rally in his national forest. To make matters worse, Caitlin is attending the rally with Mac’s estranged uncle. Having her home again brings up feelings that are better left buried.
It’s early September. Any spark will send the dry timber into a raging fire. The terrorists are counting on that distraction to work in their favor. When Caitlin is trapped by the wildfire, her only hope of rescue is pinned on Mac, the man she's tried two years to forget. Before they can share their feelings, Mac and Caitlin must first escape the burning forest and stop the terrorists from releasing the deadly pathogens.

A strong start to suspense-filled series!

I enjoy suspense-filled stories with strong female characters who are simultaneously bad-assed and vulnerable. This story did not disappoint. Caitlin is wonderfully beautiful, flawed, strong and vulnerable. She has to return home after a botched job with Northstar Security. She has to face her estranged father, who is unwell and in the hospital. She has to also address her history with Mac, the love of her life and the man who rejected her after one night of passion.

There is a lot going on in this book. There are the repercussions of her failed job, her challenged relationships but also Caroline's own personal insecurities. Mac also has his own demons to address. Throw in a biker rally, a raging forest fire, the potential threat of a bio-terrorist and so much more. The result is a detailed, fast-paced plot and a strong start to this series.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
