What will it cost this bodyguard to save the woman he loves?

Bodyguard, Tate Marshall, has always been the family troublemaker. Maybe it’s his impulsive propensity to get into the middle of problems that don’t belong to him. But once in, he can’t stop himself from trying to solve them and that includes his recent dilemma. He’s in love with the woman he’s supposed to protect, the beautiful Gloria, “Glo” Jackson, daughter of US Senator and presidential hopeful Reba Jackson. A member of the country band, the Yankee Belles, Glo was targeted in a recent terrorist attack designed to deter her mother from running.

Glo is as stubborn as her mother, and Glo isn’t about to hide from threats, at least the kind that won’t cost her heart. Because she’s already paid a terrible price for the war on terror, and she can’t let herself love a man who might die, especially because of her.

As the campaign heats up and the threats deepen, so does the attraction between Tate and Glo. But when they’re discovered, and Tate is fired, what will he do to protect the woman he loves?

And what will Glo do to keep from losing another man to the costs of war?

The gripping second installment of the Marshall Family series.

My Thoughts:

In book two of Susan May Warren's Montana Marshall's series we get to know more of the Marshall clan and we get an up close and personal look at Tate Marshall. He's the troublemaker of the family, but is he really? Ms. Warren crafts Tate as a family member who feels like he's not good enough and he has to prove himself to everyone, even himself. The heroine Glo feels the same way which allows for sparks between Tate and Glo as well as the supporting characters.

Susan May Warren is known for the action, danger, mystery and romance she packs within her stories, and Tate is no exception.

I found myself having to stop and catch my breath several times between the action and the kisses. I particularly like the thread of how we've had God's attention before we were even born we don't have to do anything to gain it.

"Heaven sees you, Glo. You don't need to do anything to get God's attention. You had it before you were born." - Gerri Marshall

I didn't get Knox read prior to reading Tate and I wasn't lost. Ms. Warren gives us enough backstory to not make you feel lost. However, with the glimpse she gives within the pages of Tate it's clear that you will want to read this series in order.

I really enjoyed this book. The political parallel was the only thing within the story I could've done without.
