Summary

When Rowan’s Arctic research team pulls a strange object out of the ice in Northern Canada, things start to go wrong...very, very wrong. Rescued by a covert, black ops team, she finds herself in the powerful arms of a man with scary gold eyes. A man who vows to do everything and anything to protect her....

Dr. Rowan Schafer has learned it’s best to do things herself and not depend on anyone else. Her cold, academic parents taught her that lesson. She loves the challenge of running a research base, until the day her scientists discover the object in a retreating glacier. Under attack, Rowan finds herself fighting to survive...until the mysterious Team 52 arrives. 

Former special forces Marine Lachlan Hunter’s military career ended in blood and screams, until he was recruited to lead a special team. A team tasked with a top-secret mission - to secure and safeguard pieces of powerful ancient technology. Married to his job, he’s done too much and seen too much to risk inflicting his demons on a woman. But when his team arrives in the Arctic, he uncovers both an unexplained artifact, and a young girl from his past, now all grown up. A woman who ignites emotions inside him like never before.

But as Team 52 heads back to their base in Nevada, other hostile forces are after the artifact. Rowan finds herself under attack, and as the bullets fly, Lachlan vows to protect her at all costs. But in the face of danger like they’ve never seen before, will it be enough to keep her alive.

Fun Fast Paced Action Romance!!

Anna Hackett always delivers the perfect mix of Fun Action Packed Stories with a well developed Romance. Now add Stella Bloom to the mix as the Narrator and you won't be able to put your headphones down until you've finished listening to it through and through. Loved the book and the Narration! Solid 5 Stars. Can't wait to Read and Listen to the rest of the Series!!

Team 52 book 1: blast from the past

When a research expedition goes horribly wrong, Team 52 is called in to rescue any survivors and to secure dangerous technology.

It also puts Lachlan in the path of someone from his past who shakes up his present.

Love this beginning of team 52 and can't resist the pull of the next one as well.

Looking forward to more!!

Anna Hackett continues to wow her readers with Rowan and Lachlan second chance romance that is full of adventure, sarcasm, alpha males, and capable leading ladies !! I also love how Anna Hackett ties this series to her Treasure Hunter Security Series and gives us a chance to glimpse more from those characters! Stella Bloom’s narration is awesome!! She performs a wide range of accents and brings each story to life!! Looking forward to more of this series!!

Totally Different!

Mission: Her Protection is book 1 in a multiple book series written by Anna Hackett and narrated by Stella Bloom. It's a very unique combination of Military Romance and the Paranormal. Of course it's all very hush hush.
Our hero, Lachlan, is a medically retired Marine who as a child had a young neighbor girl who he had befriended. Our heroine, Rowan, is a scientist on an expedition in Northern Canada when a unique item is found in the ice. Lachlan and team 52 are called in to help the expedition and take the item found. Things go from bad to worse and Lachlan has to keep rescuing Rowan while his feelings get deeper.
Would I listen to this book again? Yes
Would I recommend this book to others? Yes
Stella Bloom has done an amazing job in bringing the characters to life and telling the story that Anna Hackett has written.

annoying narrator

Im just going to read this instead of listening. The constant sharp breaths in are distracting to the narration.

Suspenseful!!

This is the first book in the Team 52 Series. Rowan and Lachlan’s story is action packed and suspenseful!! The storyline is filled with danger, mystery, and twists and turns. This is also a great second chance to love. Stella Bloom did a fantastic job with the narration. I loved it! Looking forward to listening to Mission: Her Rescue, the next book in the Series! If you like Romantic Suspense, this Series definitely is for you!
