Publisher: SDG Publishing
Release Date:
July 9, 2019
Genre: Christian Romantic Suspense

What will it cost this bodyguard to save the woman he loves?

Bodyguard, Tate Marshall, has always been the family troublemaker. Maybe it’s his impulsive propensity to get into the middle of problems that don’t belong to him. But once in, he can’t stop himself from trying to solve them and that includes his recent dilemma. He’s in love with the woman he’s supposed to protect, the beautiful Gloria, “Glo” Jackson, daughter of US Senator and presidential hopeful Reba Jackson. A member of the country band, the Yankee Belles, Glo was targeted in a recent terrorist attack designed to deter her mother from running.

Glo is as stubborn as her mother, and Glo isn’t about to hide from threats, at least the kind that won’t cost her heart. Because she’s already paid a terrible price for the war on terror, and she can’t let herself love a man who might die, especially because of her.

As the campaign heats up and the threats deepen, so does the attraction between Tate and Glo. But when they’re discovered, and Tate is fired, what will he do to protect the woman he loves?
And what will Glo do to keep from losing another man to the costs of war?

The gripping second installment of the Marshall Family series.

My Thoughts

This is the second book in the exciting Montana Marshalls series by Susan May Warren. I just finished reading Knox, the first book, and this book continues right where that one left off. (Let me just say…I’m so glad I didn’t have to wait to read it!! But you will definitely want to read them in the right order)

This is Tate & Glo’s story. I liked them already in the first book, and couldn’t wait to read their story!

Tate is a bodyguard, but he has a difficult past. And he’s not sure he deserves anything good. Glo is stubborn. She’s already lost one man she loves, and she definitely doesn’t want to lose her heart to another man she’ll end up losing.

Glo’s in a hard spot. She’s lost her sister. She’s always felt abandoned (or neglected) by her mother…and now her mother wants her there with her as she follows her political aspirations. But does this mean she’s throwing away any chance at a relationship between Tate & herself?

And Tate…he’s been hired as Glo’s bodyguard. But this means that he had to strike a deal with her mother. And he has to see Glo being escorted everywhere by Slick Sloan.

Yeah…lots going on here…and there is also some suspense involved.

I couldn’t help loving them and rooting for them, right from the get-go. Ms. Warren has a such a way of weaving her stories…the characters come to life and feel like friends.

One other thing…just as you reach the end, you reach another place of extreme tension in the story line where you feel like you just HAVE to keep reading…these are the kinds of things that Susan May Warren is so good at delivering. So stay tuned for Ford–releasing later on this year!

If you enjoy contemporary Christian romance with a hint of Western thrown in, you won’t want to miss this one! (Really, the entire series! 😉 )

  1. Sounds good. I haven’t read a Susan May Warren book in a while, and this book sounds like a great remedy to that. Thanks for sharing!
