Two babies in jeopardy…two powerful stories in one!
When an unhinged cult leader escapes custody, he'll stop at nothing to get to two innocent babies…and the foster mothers who stand in his way.
GUARDING EVE by Beth Cornelison
Lila Green goes from foster mom to bodyguard when a storm traps her and six-month-old Eve in a remote mountain cabin with a killer on their heels. Can her neighbor, wounded veteran Dean Hamilton, help them survive?
CLAIMING CALEB by Karen Whiddon
Michelle Morgan must protect her newborn nephew, Caleb—and even work with her ex-fiancé. FBI agent Garrett Ware never wanted children, but now he'll sacrifice everything for this baby…and this woman.
Interesting two in one concept in this book, the prologue is for both of the stories, but then the hunt by the cult leader for the babies, is divided in two, giving you two novellas, instead of one full story.
Both stories are second chance romance, with a considerate time in between since the characters saw each other the last time.
They are not only trying to protect the babies from the cult leader wanting to kill them, the old feelings that bubble up to the surface again, and the force of nature, as the ice storm turns into a blizzard.
Both stories have all the elements of being outstanding, the intensity coming from all sides of the tale, the enemy, the nature, and the attraction and passion for each other, as well as take care of a little baby.
It's not easy to pull off very developed characters in a novella length of a story, or develop a meaningful relationship. I'm glad for the epilogue in a second story, giving it more of a closure.
I think both of the stories were good, they had tension, fear, action, and fight. The nature's menace was fierce, staying alive was a challenge. The feelings the couples have for each other are simmering, the past misconceptions and hurt putting some roadblocks on the way. Both of the stories deliver an interesting tale, a quick read, cute babies, and a horrendous villain
