Piper was visiting her friend Kalee that was a Peace Corps volunteer when rebels attacked the orphanage they were visiting. She managed to hide with three young girls but they wouldn’t survive long in their hiding place.
A team of SEAL’s went to look for Kalee but they found Piper and the girls instead. One of those men was Ace, who didn’t hesitate a second to do what was necessary to take them safely to the US.
A strong female character with a strong male character always make a good combo, right? In this case it was a fantastic duo and how they protected the children was even more beautiful. I wish there were more people like Tex helping couples adopt children the way it was done in this book.
The story was, in true Susan Stoker fashion, full of dangerous situations, suspense, kindness and romance. I had a great time reading the book in one sitting.
I have to say I never get tired of the writing style in these types of books, especially when you know there is always more to come and you don’t know where will it come from.
What upset me about this particular book wasn’t related to the main story (Ace and Piper) but about someone else. I can’t tell you whom without spoiling a mystery that solved itself at the end of the book.
The thing is that the situation created a hook for another book down the line on the series that won’t come out soon. That put me in a bad mood. It was a great hook but, seriously? *big sigh*
You don’t need to read earlier books in the series to understand this one, but characters from different books make appearances here.
I would recommend you read this book if you like military stories, romantic suspense, no cliffhangers, happily ever after and great hooks.
