#BookReview: Light My Fire by Susan May Warren

21 Jun

Light My Fire is a page-turning novella! I loved the Alaskan setting and was delighted by the tie-in to the Montana Fire series. Tucker and Stevie’s adrenaline-fueled adventure boasts elements of suspense and romance, and I was captivated by their story. Light My Fire begins the Summer of the Burning Sky trilogy, and I can’t wait for more!

About the book:

Former bad-boy Tucker Newman has learned his lesson—as the temporary team leader of the Jude County Smokejumpers, he’s all about following the rules to keep his team safe. Especially when he has to partner with a group of local low-security prisoners to knock down the raging fire. But the prisoners are not who they seem, and when they stage a break, kidnapping one of his teammates, he’ll have to break every rule he knows to get her back.

US Marshal Stevie Mills knows that to get the job done, she must work alone. She simply can’t risk another person getting hurt because of her. When she discovers that a wanted fugitive accused of rape and murder has not only been set free to fight the fire—but is now on the lam with a hostage– the last thing she needs is a zealous smokejumper getting in the way of her pursuit.

Whether they like it or not, Tucker and Stevie must join forces if they hope to save lives, and in the meantime, they just might discover a new definition for the word teamwork, in book 1 of the Summer of the Burning Sky.

#BookReview: Storm Front by Susan May Warren

28 May

Combining risk and romance, it is always a pleasure to revisit the PEAK Rescue team! Warren brings to life a dynamic cast of characters whose camaraderie is tangible, as is the turmoil they face. In Storm Front, Ty Remington and Brette Arnold share a dramatic and emotional journey where “life and love hang in the balance”.  I enjoyed their action-packed adventure and eagerly await this series’ finale. While each of the Montana Rescue books can be read independently, I recommend reading the progressing storylines in order for a greater understanding of the characters and their stories.

About the book:

A tornado has destroyed a small Minnesota community and among the missing are not only a group of students but PEAK Rescue team leader Chet King. Ty Remington will stop at nothing to rescue his mentor, not even when the girl he loved–and lost–walks back into his life. But Brette needs his help more than he knows, despite her stubborn determination to push him away. And when he gets a second chance, loving her just might cost him more than he can imagine.

A blogger for Vortex Storm Chasers, Brette Arnold didn’t expect her adventures to land her in the same place as Ty, the guy who she walked–no, ran–from over a year ago. She had her reasons–good ones. The kind that tell her that falling for him again would only lead to heartache. But Ty isn’t the kind of man to give up–not on the missing students, or on her.

#BookReview: Troubled Waters by Susan May Warren

3 Jan

Troubled Waters is an action-packed tale of adventure and romance! I have been anticipating Ian and Sierra’s story since this series began, and it did not disappoint. Fraught with drama and danger, their journey culminates with some very powerful life lessons. In addition to their emotional story, I also enjoyed the glimpses into Pete and Jess’s relationship and am eager for more as this exciting series continues. While each of the Montana Rescue stories can be read independently, the progressing storylines make reading them in order even more enjoyable. Susan May Warren brings her characters to life, and I love reading their stories!

About the book:

Billionaire Ian Shaw can have everything he wants–except a happy ending. Or at least that’s what it feels like with his fortune recently liquidated, his niece, Esme, still missing, and the woman he loves refusing to speak to him. In fact, he doubts she would date him even if they were stranded on a deserted island.

Despite her love for Ian, Sierra Rose knows he has no room in his life for her as long as the mystery of his missing niece goes unsolved. The only problem is, Sierra has solved it, but a promise to Esme to keep her whereabouts secret has made it impossible to be around Ian.

When the PEAK chopper is damaged and Sierra lacks the funds to repair it, Ian offers a fundraising junket for large donors on his yacht in the Caribbean. But the three-day excursion turns into a nightmare when a rogue wave cripples the yacht and sends the passengers overboard. Shaken up and soaked to the bone, Ian finally has a chance to test his theory when he and Sierra do indeed find themselves washed up on a strange, empty shore.

It will take guts and gumption for the PEAK team to rescue the duo. But it will take a miracle to rescue Ian and Sierra’s relationship.

A Matter of Trust is an action-packed adventure! Susan May Warren sweeps readers away to Glacier National Park and shares the beauty and brutality that can be found atop its rugged mountain peaks. Gage Watson is a great hero, working hard to forge a new path for himself and his career. I really enjoyed Gage’s courage and determination and the central theme of trust that carries through his and Ella’s journey.

With dramatic stories of risk and romance, it is always a pleasure to revisit the PEAK Rescue team. Warren has brought to life a dynamic cast of characters whose camaraderie is tangible, and I eagerly await their next adventure!

About the book:

Champion backcountry snowboarder Gage Watson has left the limelight behind after the death of one of his fans. After being sued for negligence and stripped of his sponsorships, he’s remade his life as a ski patrol in Montana’s rugged mountains, as well as serving on the PEAK Rescue team. But he can’t seem to find his footing–or forget the woman he loved, who betrayed him.

Senator and former attorney Ella Blair spends much of her time in the limelight as the second-youngest senator in the country. But she has a secret–one that cost Gage his career. More than anything, she wants to atone for her betrayal of him in the courtroom and find a way to help him put his career back on track.

#BookReview: Rescue Me by Susan May Warren

rescue-me

Rescue Me is a pulse-pounding adventure! Susan May Warren is one of my favorite contemporary authors, and I revel in each story she pens. Deputy Sam Brooks is a dashing hero, always the rescuer and never the rescued. However, all that changes during a dramatic venture in Glacier National Park.

From family relationships to romances, I delighted in the intertwining of multiple story lines. The vulnerability of the characters and their emotional and spiritual journeys shine against the beautiful backdrop of the rugged Montana wilderness. I thoroughly enjoyed Rescue Me and eagerly await the next installment in the Montana Rescue series!

I received a complimentary copy of this book. No review was required, and all thoughts expressed are my own.

 

About the book:

When Deputy Sam Brooks commits to something, nothing can sway him–not just on the job as liaison between the Mercy Falls sheriff’s department and PEAK Rescue, but in his private life. He’s the one who stuck around to take care of his mother after his father’s accidental death. And he’s the one–perhaps the only one–who believes Sierra Rose is the perfect girl for him. Safe, practical, and organized, she’s nothing like her hippie, impulsive, bleeding heart sister, Willow.

Willow, however, has been in love with Sam Brooks for as long as she can remember. But she wants her sister to have a happy ending. Besides, Willow has other things to focus on–namely, nabbing the job as youth pastor for her small-town church. Best thing for her to do is to purge Sam from her heart.

Neither can predict the events that will bring them together in a fight for their lives in the forbidding wilderness of Glacier National Park. Stranded, injured, and with the winter weather closing in, Sam and Willow will have to work together to save a crew of terrified teenagers. As they fight to survive, they might just discover a new hope for love.

Wild Montana Skies by Susan May Warren

Purchase a copy: http://bit.ly/2dZn5mg

Search and rescue pilot Kacey Fairing is home on leave in Mercy Falls, Montana, twelve years after she joined the military to escape the mistakes of her past. With a job waiting for her as the new lead pilot of Peak Rescue in Glacier National Park, Kacey hopes to reconnect with the now-teenage daughter she sees only between deployments. What she doesn’t realize is that someone else is also back in town.

Ben King has been building his country music career since the day Kacey shut him out of her life. Now all of that’s on hold when his injured father calls him home to help run Peak Rescue until he’s fully recovered. It doesn’t take long, though, to discover his father’s ulterior motives as Kacey Fairing walks into the house and back into his heart.

 

My thoughts:

Wild Montana Skies is a great story and the beginning of what is sure to be an exciting series! Susan May Warren never fails to delight me with her excellent characterization and engaging story lines, and I eagerly await each new book she releases!

Kacey Fairing and Ben King are strong characters who share a complicated history. Back in Mercy Falls, the state of emergency these two find themselves in is caused by more than rising floodwaters. I really enjoyed Kacey and Ben’s journey of faith and forgiveness as well as their rediscovered romance. I also enjoyed continuing Ian and Sierra’s story which began in the prequel novella, If Ever I Would Leave You.

Wild Montana Skies pairs adventure and romance and leaves me wanting more of the Montana Rescue series!
