by Susan May Warren
Fraser Marshall is pretty sure his career as a Spec Ops fighter is over. Yes, he’s gone into private security, working for Jones, Inc, but his last gig ended with him wounded and taken captive. And those wounds just won’t heal. The last thing he wants to do is stick around his family’s winery pressing grapes. But what choices does he have?
The answer comes via a panicked phone call from his kid brother, Creed.
Help, Fraser. I’m in over my head…
Yeah he is, because he’s run away with a princess, with her bodyguard hot on the trail. And said bodyguard, Pippa Butler is going to hunt them down, no matter the cost.
Even if she has to join forces with a bossy, arrogant former American SEAL. But Pippa has her own set of lethal skills, and if Fraser gets in the way, she’ll leave him on the side of the road. Still, maybe he’s not a terrible side-kick. He is handsome, and he makes her laugh…
No, no, bad Pippa! She has no room for a man—an American—in her life. And Fraser hasn’t ever considered slowing down. Even if Pippa has him wondering if there is a different future ahead.
But there’s more to the story than a Romeo-and-Juliet runaway romance. Princess Imani has seen a murder, and the perpetrator isn’t going to let her get away. Will Fraser and Pippa find the couple first?
And if they do, can they work together to keep them safe?
It’ll be tough if their hearts get in the way…
Another Susan May Warren novel. And a Marshalls one, at that. Bring it on!
I was so excited when I saw it.
Yes, Fraser is the first book in a new series. But….Ms. Warren does it so well, incorporating fav characters from earlier books into her new ones, and this book is just full of characters from some earlier series.
Fraser had been in special ops, until an injury kept him from joining his team. Now, he’d like to get back out into the field, and yet, in his heart, he knows he’s really not ready for that level of action.
But…then he gets a call from his brother Creed, who is over in Europe, and has gotten himself into a dangerous situation, and it’s not only himself, but also a beautiful young princess, Imani.
This book has lovely settings, and just plain amazing characters. I especially liked Pippa, Imani’s bodyguard. She is down-to-earth, and such fun to get to know.
I liked seeing the relationships develop…there are actually several romances going on in this story, but I really don’t want to give any spoilers, so I’ll leave it at that.
But…if you are a fan of action and adventure, OR…a fan of Susan May Warren’s novels, then please read this one–you won’t regret it!
