Can this bachelor bodyguard save his true love from mortal danger…on her wedding day?
Bride-to-be Megan Lynch has just learned her ex, presumed dead marine Gage Huxton, is alive after surviving enemy captivity. But before she can break up with her fiancé, gunmen storm her wedding and take hostages! Megan will do anything to stay alive—for herself and a second chance with Gage. But there's more terror to endure before she can say yes to the dress—and her dream groom!
What do the gunmen want? Gage works double time to unravel the mystery and save the beauty who still holds his heart. As the wedding crashers open fire, Gage puts his life on the line to protect Megan and convince her of his love.
What a wedding day, filled with drama, danger, and death, the whole story takes place on one chaotic, fatal day, that no one expected to see!
This story is different, the time span of the tale is just that one day, but the reflexions on the past, the memories, the recollections all bring forward the full story, and gives an eye to the prior events, feelings, and growth and change the characters has gone through.
The intensity is high, the danger is palpable, the people in the wedding chapel have very few they can trust and no way to contact the help outside. The turmoil in the chapel, in the minds, and in the hearts, the tragedies, all plays a critical point in the story, they don't know who is the target of the attack, and why, all they know is everyone's lives are in danger.
I nearly want to say, read the other books in the series before this one. Yes, I read it as a stand-alone, it was okay so, but I am sure I would have gotten much more out of the story if I would have read the previous books in the series first.
The characters are fascinating, they all have points of interest to the reader, and the two love stories developing made me sigh at the end. There's complex family situations, trust issues, self-esteem issues, past hurt, pain from the war, and an incredible survivor story. Yet I felt like some points were repeated several times in depth, yet others got just a superficial glimpse to the matter, giving an unbalanced feeling of the tale.
Savage, mortal, violent action, mixed with romance that puts the hearts on the line, and desire that has only fragile hopes of forever kind of future.
