From Publishers Weekly

Navy SEAL Zane Scott's dangerous rescue of gorgeous Dr. Olivia Strohm picks up shortly after Zane's brother Dylan's adventures left off in November 2010's Lie with Me. Zane, inexplicably smitten with a woman he's never met, risks all by heading to Sierra Leone to save her. After Liv greets him with a fry pan upside the head, Zane struggles to get her to safety. Liv has hidden from the international terrorist group Dead Man's Hand ever since she blew up one of their black market organ transplant hospitals, and she fears for her parents' safety should she return to the U.S. Meanwhile, Zane and Dylan's other Delta Force brother, Caleb, is assigned to protect and interrogate beautiful geek Vivienne Clare, setting up the next book. Lie with Me held more suspense than romance; Tyler flips the formula here, with red-hot sparks igniting copious and satisfying fireworks. (Dec.)

Format: Mass Market Paperback
In the second book of the Shadow Force series Stephanie Tyler returns readers to the heart of darkness--Africa, specifically Sierra Leone and the shadowy world of black ops mercenary soldiers. "Promises In The Dark" opens 6 months following the action packed conclusion of "Lie With Me". After witnessing and being powerless to prevent the violent abduction of Dr. Oliva Strohm by the terrorist organization DMH (Dead Man's Hand), Zane Scott has been haunted by her cries for help and a picture of her that he holds close. Zane's brother Dylan, who we met in "Lie With Me" has finally gathered enough intel to enable Zane to find Olivia and bring her home. Zane therefore takes leave from his duties as a Navy SEAL and travels to Sierra Leone, a place that for him holds traumatic childhood memories.

Olivia Strohm is a brilliant transplant surgeon who has been to hell and back twice in her life, once as a child and now at the hands of DMH. Olivia has cleverly escaped her captors and been on the run from village to village trying to do what she can to help people in need. She has been living by her wits and trying to reconcile what she had to do to escape her captors. She is a lost, tortured soul, and trusts no one.

Zane expected Olivia wouldn't willingly accept that he was there to rescue her and comes armed with a number of tools to nurture her trust. Olivia however, doesn't want to leave Africa she as is terrified she will not be able to assimilate when she returns home. It takes all of Zane's patience and strength of character to convince Olivia, a woman whose psyche has been damaged nearly beyond repair. There were occasions while reading this story that I along with Zane nearly gave up on her.

The second installment of Stephanie Tyler's Shadow Force books is fantastic. This one picks up much faster than the first book. Olivia and Zane story was just as good as fore shadowed in the first book.
The addition of Tristan and Rowen was unexpected and at first felt like a weird intruption but it soon developed into a hot well developed second story. If I had one complaint it is about Vivi and Caleb I think they should of had there own book. Their story was great although the tie in to the main story of Oliva and Zane was tenous at best. I know they are brothers but all he did was talk to his other brother Gabe on the phone about Zane. Vivi and Caleb story was really good and felt kind wasted in this book and left with a very unsatsfying conclusion leaving me to hope that they will be a main part of the next book although they arn't mentioned in the sneek peek at the end.
I love the small tie in to the Hard to Hold series. I don't partically remember Zane even as a background Character but I like that this series isn't in a vaccum.
I gave it 5 stars because 4 1/2 wasn't available. 1/2 point off for the Vivi and Caleb being a story on it's own and seperate from the main story, Gabe and Reilly supporting roles were to small, and Cam and Sky from "Promise in the Dark" did not even make and appearence. Stephanie Tyler is a really good author I have enjoyed this one as well as all her others. I am really looking foward to the next one!!!!

Different location from the first (Africa) with two secondary romances instead of one. Fast paced and it keeps your attention.

Minor nits to pick-- As others have said "sex anywhere anytime though being chased by villains".... OK, I put on my blinders and think "well, life is short! go for the gusto!" Not enough about the characters in the first book, not necessary in a series but its a big big plus for me when authors keep the other characters in the storyline. Two secondary romances gets a tensy bit unweldy and creates anxiety at times, like juggling a rabbit, chainsaw and cabbage. You don't know if you'll get cole slaw or hassenpheffer. A "how the eff did that happen" villain grab at the end and.... one of the oddest 'save themselves' moments at the end where I was thinking "OK, am I the only one thinking just float on your back until you're high enough?"

Otherwise, a good read and a good addition to the series. One star off for above mentioned nits...enough to notice but not enough to make me not want to read the 3rd book.

There are four books in this series, so far. Ex-military brothers, both biological and "brothers in arms", who work for the highest authority (the joint chiefs of staff and the president) doing undercover jobs "by any means necessary" (meaning no red tape and authorizations moving slowly up the chain of command) - just get it done! Each book highlights one of the brothers. This one is about the youngest brother, Zane, a twin, who goes off on his own to rescue a female doctor who had a small clinic in the jungle and was kidnapped by the local war lord who was planning to have plastic surgery to change his appearance. He wanted her to provide medical care during his recuperation, and "other services" upon his recovery. Things get complicated when she discovers she is pregnant from a one-night stand with Zane prior to her abduction. Can she keep it a secret? Will he allow her to keep her baby? Will he give her something in her food or water to abort the baby? And, most important of all, if she ever sees Zane again - will he believe the child is his?
