In The Unsung Hero, award-winning author Suzanne Brockmann dazzled readers with her remarkable cast of tough and tender U.S. Navy SEALs. Now her daring men in uniform return for THE DEFIANT HERO--a thrilling novel of steadfast courage, intimate passions, and the profound risks that are taken in the name of love. . . .

"The United States refuses to negotiate with terrorists." Meg Moore remembered the warning from her job as a translator in a European embassy. Those same words will spell out a death sentence for her daughter and grandmother who have been kidnapped by a lethal group called the Extremists. Meg will do anything to meet their unspeakable demands; anything--even kill--to save her child.

When Navy SEAL Lieutenant, junior grade, John Nilsson is summoned to Washington, D.C., by the FBI to help negotiate a hostage situation, the last person he expects to see holding a foreign ambassador at gunpoint is Meg. He hasn't seen her in years, but he's never forgotten how it feels to hold her in his arms. John could lose his career if he helps her escape. She will lose her life if he doesn't. . . .

Another great book by Brockmann! I admit that I had problems with Meg (the primary heroine) throughout, but I suspect that's because I can't identify with the intensity if her love for her daughter and the lengths to which she would go. I adore John Nilsson and Eve (Meg's grandmother). I've really enjoyed the historical tie-ins in the Troubleshooters series. Sam & Alyssa's story was also fun to watch as it developed. It was a bit dizzying at times to jump from thread to thread (there are a lot of storylines and perspectives to track) but the pacing was well-managed. Brisk action, unexpected but believable twists, and the amazing but flawed characters one expects from Brockmann make for an absorbing read.
