When former Navy SEAL and lifelong bachelor Ranger Kingston is called upon to take part in a rescue mission to save his brother Colt, who has been kidnapped by terrorists in Nigeria, he is shocked to find among the hostages a woman he knows and could never forget.
Noemi Sutton was attempting to return a young girl to her family in Boko Haram territory when she and the girl found themselves taken hostage, along with several others.
And while Ranger Kingston may be able to get the hostages away from their captors, he’ll need Noemi’s help if he ever hopes to get out of Nigeria alive.
Her solution? Pose as husband and wife. But when her uncle discovers the union, he insists on a traditional Nigerian wedding–binding Noemi to a man destined to break her heart. Worse, she’s discovered the real reason she was kidnapped, and anyone around her is bound to be caught in the cross fire. Including her so-called new husband.
She’ll need to figure out a way to leave the man she loves if she wants to save his life.
USA Today bestselling author Susan May Warren throws you into the thick of the action in this high-stakes, globe-trotting romance.
If y’all have followed along on the blog, you know I loved Sunrise, the first in Susan May Warren’s Sky King Ranch series. I am super excited to read Sunburst and see what comes next in the saga of the Kingston family!
Warren does an excellent job writing believable characters. The suspense is gripping, the romance is clean (and believable – it isn’t insta-love, there’s some work that has to go into building, and possibly restoring, relationships), and the Alaskan setting is majestic (at least it was in Sunrise). Now, this is a globe-trotting kind of book, it says, so the settings may be a bit more varied this time. That’s okay, though. Warren has such a way with words, I expect she’ll have me wanting to visit Nigeria before I’m done with the book.
And I’ll let ya in on a little secret – I don’t have to wait until June 7 to get my hands on this beauty! I’ll be reading and reviewing for Revell Reads. If you enjoy Christian fiction, and you’re a blogger who likes to run your mouth about books like I do, hop on over and apply!
Y’all stop back by in June to hear allllllll my thoughts about Sunburst!
