Military Heroes Turned ICE Spies - Hunt for Evil by Amy Jarecki


Are you a fan of romantic suspense? Do you like heart-thumping, spine-tingling stories with tough military heroes, and heroines who can hold their own? Amy Jarecki has embarked on a new series entitled ICE (acronym for International Clandestine Enterprise) about talented military heroes and heroines who are recruited into the elite international spy organization, ICE, headquartered in Iceland.



Book one, HUNT FOR EVIL, is about a Navy SEAL and an MI6 agent who uncover a heinous kidnapping ring and their race against time to save the girls from a fate worse than death in the world’s most notorious terrorist organization.

Amy traveled to Iceland to understand more about the country where ICE headquarters is established. Rich in geological marvels, approximately a quarter of the country is covered by glaciers. Before becoming ICE, the facility was a forgotten labyrinth of WWII bunkers located 45 meters under a glacier in the center of the country. The location is fictitious, but the descriptions are not. Amy even traveled 25 meters into the Langjökull Glacier where it’s a surprising 32 degrees year round:


 Entrance to the Langjökull Glacier.

 Vehicles used to climb over cliffs and rock to arrive at the glacier entrance.

In the maze of tunnels where Amy prayed there would not be an earthquake during the tour (LOL).

Excerpt:

Her heart nearly stopped when a hand slid over her mouth and another disarmed her. “I’m Commander Rodgers from the USS Washington, and you’re coming with me now,” an American growled in her ear. From the girth pressing against her back, he was solid—but Olivia could take him.
Grinding her teeth, she threw an elbow to his sternum. He blocked—so like a hotshot. Few people were fast enough to react to one of her strikes. But she’d nail him with her second try. Whipping around, she aimed a kick at his groin, but he blocked that, too. At least six-two and faster than an asp, Rodgers stopped her next kick by catching her ankle and giving it a twist—a warning.
“Enough. Come.” Jesus Christ, his eyes were the color of a teal lagoon and they drilled into her like daggers.
She shook her head. God, she wasn’t about to go anywhere with dagger-eyes. Not without a fight.
Suited up in scuba gear, his facemask cocked atop his head, the man had to be daft. “What the fuck, Aquaman?” she whisper-shouted. “If anyone sees you, we’ll both be shot before the first question’s asked.”
His eyebrows slanted downward over those damned eyes. “Yeah?” he whisper-shouted back. “Everyone on this boat will be dead in fifteen. If you want to live, you’ll do as I say.”
Olivia’s mouth went dry. She blinked, shaking her head. He had to be mistaken. One more day and al-Umari’s ass would be hers. “Are you off your trolley? I’ve put too much into this project to have it blown to smithereens. Call off your dogs before you cock-up the entire op. Now.”
“No can do,” he said like her hard-earned cover wasn’t about to become the greatest wipeout in MI6 history. “Sorry to ruin your party, but there’s a bomb attached to the hull. Can’t be killed, can’t be dislodged, and if you stand here arguing with me for one more second, you’ll explode into so many pieces, you won’t make a meal for a goddamned minnow.”
Those are my choices?
“Christ!” She jammed her finger under his nose. “When this is over, your ass is mine.”
