THE WIDOW'S PROTECTOR
Lark Porter thinks she'll find answers about her husband's death when she returns to their former home, but someone doesn't like the questions she's asking. She's quickly taken captive, and all that stands between her and certain death is a mysterious stranger telling her to trust him if she wants to get out alive. Hostage Rescue and Extraction Team member Cyrus Mitchell marvels at Lark's strength and determination to survive. The closer they get to freedom, the more dangerous the situation becomes. Once free, though, it takes all the skills and training Cyrus has to outmaneuver the deadly killers on their trail.
Mission: Rescue—No job is too dangerous for these fearless heroes
If you enjoy heart stopping action filled dangerous situations, mixed with clean and sweet romance, and team working together to catch the criminals, you will love this story.
From the beginning of the book, the story kept a hold of me, the danger was present and palpable, the escape from the cult perilous, the continuing attacks for Lark's life kept everyone, including me, on the toes and fearing for her life.
The connection Lark and Cyrus have, is tender and sweet, adorable. They seem to bring the best in each other. Cyrus respects and honors the marriage she had, and the memory of the dead husband. The few affectionate moments they have in the midst of the danger made me sigh. The conversations they have, sharing with each other about their lives built a trust and understanding between them. When everything in the situation is out of control, they trust God to guide them, and keep them safe, reminding each other, that He is in control.
The HEART team's work is seamless and professional. The banter between them an obvious sign how much they care for each other, the respect for each others abilities clear in their interactions.
I enjoyed this story immensely, and I'm looking forward to more in the series
