    Undercover CIA agent David Cavanaugh "Cav" had a brief cameo in Whisper No Lies when he helped Johnny Reed save Crystal from the clutches of a human trafficking ring. Carrie Granger was mentioned in Risk No Secrets as Wyatt's highschool sweetheart. When Wyatt let her down gently and later came back a married man, Carrie was heartbroken. In an effort to get some distance and lick her wounds, she left for Myanmar in her capacity as a nurse. She barely put her foot on the curb when she witnesses a young woman being beaten by some corrupt military personnel. She rushes to the rescue only to find herself arrested, tried and found guilty. The military, realizing their mistake decide to make her disappear and ship her off to a labor camp.

    Wyatt contacts his old CIA buddy, Cav, and enlists his help to find Carrie. Cav resurrects his cover identity as a shrewd business man and follows his leads to the mine camp where she's being held. What follows is a risky attempt to break her out of there and get her safely back home. What Cav doesn't count on is falling for the gorgeous and gentle southern belle who turns out to be courageous on top of everything else. For one, he's rattled, but in a good way.

    I LOVED this little short story, since I'm already in love with the series and the rest of the Black Ops Inc team. Cav was a bit of a mystery, hot to boot, and a hunky hero in his own right. Carrie was a nice surprise as well. I figured her to be that good girl that Wyatt left behind, sheltered, a goody two-shoes. But she showed tenacity and a lot of spunk. I found their attraction believable, sweet and sexy. If any woman could give Cav a purpose for living (again) it was Carrie.

    What is the cure for a damaged hero who is also handsome, super sexy, and oh so alpha? Well, according to author, Cindy Gerard, the answer is quite simple: a good woman. Hokey?

    What is the cure for a damaged hero who is also handsome, super sexy, and oh so alpha? Well, according to author, Cindy Gerard, the answer is quite simple: a good woman. Hokey? Perhaps, but hey people this is romantic fiction, and Ms. Gerard’s theory always provides a great adventure, and I love tagging along!

    Directly after Carrie Granger arrived in the third-world country that she traveled to in order to help set up a dialysis program, she disappeared without a trace. Her childhood friend and high school sweetheart, Wyatt Savage (from Gerard’s Risk No Secrets) is worried sick. He calls his buddy David Cavanaugh, CAV, to find her—quickly! And find her he does—as a slave laborer in the mountains surrounded by thick jungles in the hands of brutal captors who are mining rubies.

    CAV pulls every string he’s got to infiltrate the mining camp as a greedy American investor, but can he pull-off this op alone? More importantly, can he get around his own demons of alcoholism to return Carrie home safely? Oh yeah, and one more thing—he falls in love with her—isn’t it all complicated enough?

    Cindy Gerard knows how to write a romance filled with nail-biting suspense. I loved every moment of delicious trepidation that Gerard so masterfully weaved into this story. I loved her Black Ops series and was delighted when she revisited it to provide this wonderful novella. Thank you Ms. Gerard!

    If you have read the BOI or Black Ops Inc. series from Cindy Gerard you have met David Cavanaugh. David is better known simply as Cav. Long time friends and former coworkers of Wyatt Savage and Joe Green both on the BOI team. In Whisper No Lies (book 3 and my favorite!) Cav helps the guys save the heroine in that book. Now he's thinking he's done with the CIA he wants out. Right about that time Wyatt calls desperate for his help. His friend Carrie is missing in a country that doesn't care for wo

    If you have read the BOI or Black Ops Inc. series from Cindy Gerard you have met David Cavanaugh. David is better known simply as Cav. Long time friends and former coworkers of Wyatt Savage and Joe Green both on the BOI team. In Whisper No Lies (book 3 and my favorite!) Cav helps the guys save the heroine in that book. Now he's thinking he's done with the CIA he wants out. Right about that time Wyatt calls desperate for his help. His friend Carrie is missing in a country that doesn't care for women's rights. He can't so no so off he goes. This is a short but fast paced book. Still has all the thrill factors the other full books in this series had and the hunky guy and tough but vulnerable girl and steamy sex scenes. I'm so glad we got to see a bit more of Cav. He comes off as pretty slick and put together in the previous book he appeared in but we find out he's not as perfect as he seems. Loved this book but as always with a really good novella you wish it had been longer. Have to add it was nice to have a really quick visit with some of the other BOI guys too! 5 out of 5 stars for Leave No Trace by Cindy Gerard.

    Others: we hear about other BOIs but they have a very small part in the book

    Where: Myanmar (Burma)

    To tell the truth I don't normally read "short stories". For the most part they feel like part of a story and I always want to read the rest. In Leave No Trace, I definitely did not feel that way. The main characters are people we have met in previous books.

In Leave No Trace, I definitely did not feel that way. The main characters are people we have met in previous books. We met Cav in Whisper No Lies (Black Ops Inc. #3) and we met Carrie in Risk No Secrets (Black Ops Inc. #5). Ms. Gerard wove a story in both books that made the reader care about these two people and want to see more of them.

    This story was the perfect length and in the words of Paul Harvey, "Now you know the rest of the story."

    Short but perfectly formed, just like me :-)

    OMG! I was so surprised and happy to find two of my favorite supporting characters, CIA Agent David Cavanaugh, and, Wyatt Savage's high school sweetheart, Carrie Granger, find each other and get a novella HEA.

    Carrie is in Myanmar, a very dangerous place, to help a local hospital and have an adventure after Wyatt has gotten married. She hasn't even checked onto her hotel and she gets in trouble and is "disappeared" by the government.

    Cav is an old CIA buddy of Wyatt's and has been fighting burnout and a taste for alcohol. When Wyatt contacts him because Carrie has disappeared without a trace, he uses all his sources to find her.

    CIA Agent David Cavanaugh was a big help to the BOI team when they needed help rescuing Crystal Debrowski from Jakarta following her abduction. Now Wyatt Savage reaches out to him again for help in finding his friend Carrie Granger who inexplicably disappeared as soon as she landed in Myanmar. Carrie was his high school girlfriend and is still very special to him.

    CIA Agent David Cavanaugh was a big help to the BOI team when they needed help rescuing Crystal Debrowski from Jakarta following her abduction. Now Wyatt Savage reaches out to him again for help in finding his friend Carrie Granger who inexplicably disappeared as soon as she landed in Myanmar. Carrie was his high school girlfriend and is still very special to him.

    David and Carrie are two minor characters from previous stories but both interested me for different reasons. I felt so bad for Carrie when it was clear Wyatt's interest was in Sophie. She seemed like a woman of substance who lost her first love. David was Mr. Clutch when the BOI team needed him and his cover role in Jakarta was pretty murky. So, for these two to find each other just made ME feel better:)

    It's a short story but brings all the tension, suspense and romance you find in the full length books in the series. And, I liked learning more about the political situation in Myanmar. David and Carrie were strong characters and the climactic scene about her rescue was really exciting. I very much enjoyed this story and the outcomes.

    Undercover CIA Agent Dave Cavanaugh receives a call from Wyatt Savage asking for his help. Wyatt's family friend, Carrie Granger, took a plane to Myanmar and disappeared off of the face of the earth. No one has heard from her since. Wyatt asks Cav to find her and bring her back to Georgia. It takes a couple of days, but Cav discovers that Carrie was arrested and sent to a work camp. The government denies ever having her. Cav must find a way into the camp and get Carrie out of there before she is killed.

    This story featured two characters we've met in previous Black Ops, Inc. books. I liked both Cav and Carrie and I loved the setting in the jungles of Myanmar. My rating: 4.5 Stars.

    We met David Cavanaugh in

    . He is full of promises, unfortunately the story was to short to provide enough character and relationship developments. Also, I hate TSTL behaviors from the heroines at that's what put Carrie (we met her in

    ) in such a mess.

    I was SO disappointed by this one.

    Let me start with a first thing. This book was published in 2010-2012 and may well have been written before that. However it seems no research at all had been done about the country and its development in the past years. Yangon is mentioned as being the capital – indeed the capital is Nay Pyi Taw since November 2005; Yangon remains the main city for business and where almost all of the international flights arrive, but that's it.

    Let me start with a first thing. This book was published in 2010-2012 and may well have been written before that. However it seems no research at all had been done about the country and its development in the past years. Yangon is mentioned as being the capital – indeed the capital is Nay Pyi Taw since November 2005; Yangon remains the main city for business and where almost all of the international flights arrive, but that's it. This book also describes an environment that correspond to the worst (and partially biased) depiction of the junta regime and totally forgets to mention that the junta is no longer the exclusive power in place and that the civilian regime in charge since Nov. 2010 has launched an opening and liberalization policy that cannot be completely dismissed. The status quo I felt in this book seemed then disconnected from the changes occurring in Myanmar; it would have disturbed me a bit, were this book supposedly taking place in the early 2000' years and it really irked me for something more recent.

    Then we can go on with the second major deception: where is the romance? absolutely forgotten in the mountainous jungles around Mogok. I never could understand how those two managed to fall in love and did not believe one moment that their story would last until the following Christmas.

    But Cavanaugh was the hero: he had real potential when met in Feel no heat. Unfortunately he did not deliver: he had decided to resign its position and to tackle his alcoholism problem, but that's about all we learnt about him and all his struggles come from those 2 facts: soon-to-be unemployed with no perspectives and alcoholic-to-boot.

    What about the heroine: she fits all the requirement of TSTL and several times I just thought that she almost deserved what happened to her; fortunately during their ordeal to escape the forced labor camp where she had been imprisoned, she managed to follow correctly the orders and not slip up. But that's the extent of the goodwill I'd give her.

    Thinking about it, I feel the dissatisfaction boiling up again.

    I do not recommend this book, even to Cindy Gerard's fans.
